This place is overpriced if your looking for a room for sleeping only it's okay . Bathtubs are disgusting beds are super tiny the location is good close enough to walk to the Ramblas. If you get a room at the building next to the hotel the rooms there are not as good as the rooms at the actual hotel, ask for a room where you have the front desk.

the hostal is one minute away from paral-el metro station so in 3 minutes you're in the city center. the room was clean and spacious enough. if you're a couple specify a king size bed, othewise you'll get twin beds! it's better to spend 10 euros more and get a room on a high floor con in barcellona during nighttime it's always noisy! th breakfaast consists of pancakes and cofee or tea, and sandwiches, it's easier than going looking for a cheap but good cafè. the staff is really friendly, they speak all european langages!

A Budget hotel to be sure. No fancy amenities, just a good, clean room at a moderate rate. The hotel is located on a block with several small bars and restaurants and only a one minute walk to the Paral-el Metro stop. Internet is good only in the lobby or on any floor near the elevator. Last year I stayed here by myself in a room with 3 twin beds. This time my wife and I were given a room with 4 twin beds.

This is a budget hotel, comfortable and convenient to restaurants and the Metro. Also, walking distance from Ramblas. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The only small problem was a shower curtain a little short and narrow, so water gets on floor. Recommended.

I was very happy in this budget hotel for 2 nights, very Spartan like but it met my needs and the price was right for this no frills facility. It is an easy walk of about 125 meters from the El Paral-lel Metro stop, only two stops from Las Ramblas. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Good little restaurants are located on the same block. If you just want a clean place to sleep and shower at low cost, then this is a good choice.

We was in last weekend in Barcelona, in Hotel El Abrevadero. The room is was nice and convenient, but the bathroom was smelly (sewage odor), but we have opened the window and everything was fine :) The metro station is very near, 1 minute walking. The Ramblas is near too, only 5-7 minutes walking. So location is very good. The staff is very friendly. We got free Barcelona map too.

The stay was good. Clean rooms and clean bathrooms. The location of the room was a bit clumsy and too many doors to open before you get into your rooms. No wi-fi in your rooms but you get good connection at the hotel reception. Hotel staff were staff were friendly and provided good tips around Barcelona. The hotel is also close to Metro station Parallel.

At arrival, I had a huge room with four beds, which I did not ask for, but after three days I was asked to move to a single room. When I refused, as I did not want to remake my luggage, the reaction of the person at the desk was not nice. The breakfast, not included in the price of the hostal, is bad. But there are very good places in the neighborhood where to have a very good and cheaper breakfast. A friend of mine made a reservation through internet during my stay there and he was offered a single room for a price much more convenient than the price I had to pay with two months in advance.

Cigarette ash from one of the former guests was lying on the floor of the room. That shows that the rooms are not cleaned on regular basis, respectively after every guest. The mountings in the bath also have been only cleaned from the upper side. The bath tub was rusty, so it costs an effort to take a shower there. The aeration in the bath don´t function, so the whole room smelles very musty. Also in the night it was very loud there, but because of the smell in the room, you couldn´t close the windows. The breakfast for additionally 7,- Euro was selfservice and for this price very poor. No recommendation from my side!

I wanted for my one week long vacation in Barcelona a small hostel, in the center of the city with good price- and I got it. The hostal was in the perfect location. My room was small, clean with basic things. I heard through walls my neighbour singing in the shower, but that did not bother me- it was a good song and after fourth time I could even sing along some parts. The only thing that bothered me was that I couldn´t tell from my room what kind of weather was outside- rainy? windy? sunny? The staff was very nice and helpful. The nicest cleaning-ladies I have ever met. So...to sum it up- I would go back!

It waas clean and quiet, the service/staff was fiendly and knowledgable. Facilities in fair-good condition. Immediate neighborhood was quiet, but walking to the "ramblas" was sketchy at night. It was about 6-8 blocks away from the ramblas and markets, all walkable distance. I recommend it, In general you get a good deal for the money.

The Hostal Abrevadero is a perfect place for people with low requirements. The rooms are very basic equipped but clean. The metro station is just 1 minute away from the hotel. To la rambla i takes about 5 minutes with the metro and by foot around 10 minutes. We were four young people and it was just like we expected it. The price was ok. The only negative thing was that we had to pay every day, one night. One night we arrived at 5 am. and the men at the reception told us that we had to pay two night now. You can imagine that this was kind of annoying.

Location is best asset : close to metro, Ramblas, sea-front, shops. Rooms to the street can be very noisy because of the bar tropical just opposite. Only solution, enjoy BCN night life or switch on the fan to max volume! Clean. We were a bit surprised we had to pay 2€ to leave the luggage after check out...

Barcelona is a wonderfull city, lots of places to see and be. The "El Abravadero" is a nice hostal one block from one of the main avenues and a metro station. It is quite nice in a pleasant residential neighbourhood, walk distance of the "Ramblas" and the main attractions. Ask for the hostal attendant for tips on restaurants and other non tourist places in order to get it more real.

The Hotel is really close to the metro (Paral-lel), the room is very very small. To say that the finishes were poor is actually making them a compliment. Stink of fresh paint (or something alike in the air-freshner) was a constant presence. If you don't mind about that and you use the room ONLY for sleeping when you're exhausted after a night in the city well.. this is a good price/quality rate! The personnel is kind and present 24h a day.
