Lonely Planet review
The homey smell of laundry pervades this quaint little hostel in a great location close to the shore, the Parc de la Ciutadella and the nightlife of El Born. The 11 simple rooms are kept spick and span, with nothing much in the way of frills.
Rooms with balconies benefit from plenty of natural light but little noise, as the lane is set away from the busy nearby thoroughfares.
Our independent authors have visited Pension Francia and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in La Ribera.
