We stayed here this week.The Hostal is not easy to find, It's run by Pakistani. We booked a 2 persons room (got a 4). In one word Awfull!! I travelled to many hostels all over Europe. There are good and bad ones off course. Well...This is the worst one you can think off. Almost everything was old, dirty in our...

This pension should not be open for business. How many people will be ripped off before something is done about the place. It is an absolute dump and deathtrap of comical porportions, I agree with the previous reviewer who said it must of been the inspiration for 'Hostel' (a gory horror film). I booked this place online with what I...

Our first impressions of Manu Pension were poor. The staff on the front desk were very disorganised with guests having to wait over an hour to be given a room. You could sense their frustration as they had arrived after the specified time to be given a room. The bloke behind the counter was keen to get our money off...

If you are looking for a decent place to sleep with honest hostel owners, stay FAR AWAY. The managers here are absolutely awful, and are dishonest, don't speak English well, and only want your money. I tried to make a reservation on the phone with someone who didn't speak English OR Spanish, and he promised me a double bed for...

WATCH OUT FOR YOUR CREDIT CARD!!! Staff is exremely disorganized, owner 'accidently' double charged my card. Also, he overcharged the credit card for minor/already existing damages. He promised to negotiate the price by email but had already charged the card with an OUTRAGEOUS fine without my knowing/permission (once you book online with CC they have access to your card until...

Staying in El Raval

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.
