Barcelona is one of the best cities to visit in Europe if you’re on a budget as it is very backpacker and budget-friendly. While it’s true that there are many glamorous and expensive hotels in Barcelona, that doesn’t meant that you can’t find cheap accommodation as long as you know where to look. El Raval offers some of the cheapest places to stay in the Ciudad Condal, with many hostels charge a fraction of the price as most hotels or rentals. If you’re looking for a place to stay for little cash, here are some of the cheapest accommodations in El Raval where you can save some pennies for the more fun parts of your trip.
Hostal Nou Raval

If you can’t spend a lot of money on accommodation but don’t like the idea sharing a bunk-style room, this is the place for you. Call or look on the calendar online to check for availability.
