The website of this Hostel is fantastic! And the photografer made an impossible job: transforming this place in a idyllic place! BUT... it's nothing like that! The room I stayed in had a small window which I couldn't close because it was too high. This window was my "view" to MACBA Museum and to the courtyard, the place for smokers!...

This place is ok if you want cheap, we payed 175 euros for 3 nights with a double bed and ensuite bathroom. If you can find cheaper, then I would try elsewhere. The rooms are pretty clean, the service is ok, it was cleaned every day, and the staff were pretty good as well. The hotel is also in an...

...as you are close to La Rambla and nice bars. Other than that GatRaval is average at most. The rooms are smallish, which is ok. The communal bathrooms wer quite dirty, which I found less ok. Quite disturbing are the paper-thin walls. Every (I mean EVERY) noise from the next rooms can be heard. All in all it was ok...

First things first, it is important to remember this is a *hostel* not a hotel. I think a lot of the criticism here is based on unrealistic and unfair expectations. If you are looking for a hotel, you might be a bit disappointed. I was satisfied for the 40 euros a night I paid for a double bed room. If...

I stayed in this hostal at late notice, and feel like I was ripped-off. It is a central location off La Rambla in Raval, and the rooms are a decent size for a single and clean. But the street can feel unsafe late at night if you are a female on your own, and there is no free wifi. 70...

I have just returned from a trip in Barcelona and I have to say that my stay at the Gat Raval Hostal was absolutely dreadful!! With one of my best friends, we were looking for a hostel in the centre of the city for two nights and this "hostel" was recommended by both the Lonely Planet and the Guardian... and...

Having looked at the website, we ought to have looked at Tripadvior so the reviews would have put us off. And rightly so - this place is horrible, smelly, and the staff are unhelpful. The room had a pillar coming through it, was tiny, and in no way resembled the website pics. The floor was dirty, the place is noisy...

We stayed here mainly because it was close to the Manchester bar and the mama cafe, which we'd liked on the last trip to Barcelona. We only stayed one night and booked a twin room without shower. The hostel wasn't full so it was pretty easy getting into the shower, not sure how this would work out if it was...

The hostel is centrally located, with good bars and shops around but looks nothing like the advertised website. The room was extremely small (very uncomfortable) and the bathrooms were (communal) not clean. On the up side the man at reception was very helpful and understanding but we were able to find something in Barcelona for a cheaper price and of...

The location is good but the hostal doesn't look like the pictures I have seen from the web site. Thge pictures look trendy with the white and green color and the pictures on the walls. But in reality, the walls are painted white but it is black in some parts and because of moisture some parts are also yellow and...

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.
