The only advantage of the hostel is its good location, just near La Ramblas so convenient to travel around. But other things are just gross. WiFi available only in the ground floor but not in rooms. Rooms are clean, toilets are clean, but that's it.

We were in an apartment near the youth hostel at 2nd floor and in street size. We stay 1 week in april 2013. >0 (positive points) near the rambla, Barri Gotic, Liceu subway station. Helpful staff, responsive (coffee machine not working was change by a new one), French and English speaking. Cleaning costs were not requested (30€). Bed linen and...

Center Rambles is in an ideal location but everything else is terrible. Although Barcelona is known for its partying you would think come 4/5am people would be quiet but no. The entire night all you can hear is screaming, yelling, banging, clapping and singing. It is like the walls are made of paper. Don't expect any sleep here. The rooms...

Stayed here for one night, last October with my partner. Location can't be beat, right in the middle of town and steps from the metro. The staff was friendly and offered good suggestions when we asked. Beds were okay, building and rooms are kind of institutional; lacked a certain character. Reasonably clean and did not notice anything buggy or filthy....

So the big positive is the location, right off the Ramblas. Great location. Obviously, central Bacelona, watch your possessions, look out for pick pockets and steer clear of the insane (care in the community?) if they approach you! Staff at the hostel are friendly and do their best to help. They are knowledgeable and happy to advise. Room very basic...

I was hopeful about this place as the receptionist was friendly and there we some chatty people outside who assured me it was ok for the money. However it was horrific... Three groups of teenagers ran up and down screaming all night and setting off the fire alarms. When I told reception they shrugged and said its always like that...

Just got back from a weekend stag do where 18 of us stayed at this hostel. Slightly apprehensive after reading reviews but the location looked good. On arrival everything was fine. We all checked in no problem. The two rooms were basic with bunk beds and a locker each. The toilet and showers were shared but clean and working. Having...

Three large groups of 19 year old's from the Netherlands, England and somewhere else. SCREAMING and shouting their heads off ALL night long, no kidding!!!!!! OMG! They rattled doors, sang loudly going down the hallways and stairs, banging around the whole Barcelona Center Rambles IYHA hostel. The police should have been called, but apparently that is what goes on EVERY...

My room smelled like an unclean bathroom (I mean it) - we had to sleep with the windows open in order to not be intoxicated by it! The bathroom itself smelled even worse and the showers didn't provide hot water (needless to say that they looked dirty...). Conditions are just TERRIBLE. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else.

This place is fullllllllll of bed bugs and the rooms and toilets are nasty. From the minute you walk into the place you can see the disorganised staff and nasty environment. I am suffering from a bad allegeric reaction to bed bugs right now. I just want to say, this place is very, very unclean, and the light in the...

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
