BARCELONA HOSTELS - HOSTEL IN BARCELONA SPAIN

Barcelona HostelsBarcelona Hostels - In Barcelona you will find several types of accomodations, and hostels is not an exception. This concept was created in Germany, spreading to the rest of Europe, especially after the year 1932. Hostels were born to permit cheap accomodation to young travellers.

Eventhough hostels are no longer only for young travellers, the Hostels in Barcelona are mainly occupied by this type of visitor. Hostels offer a unique experience and environment. It is recommended for those who are willing to share bedrooms or dorms, and bathrooms with other people. If you are travelling with a group this may be convenient because it is possible to all stay in the same room. If you are travelling alone, you may not feel comfortable staying with people you do not know. Nontheless, as said before it all depends on the experience you are looking for! Yes, it is possible to get your private room, but be careful because, depending on what hostel, this may cost you more than a standard hotel.

In the Hostels of Barcelona you can normally find a lively, young ambiance. If you are planning on having a relaxing trip, hostels are not the best option. If you are looking to meet people in Barcelona, and live a different experience a hostel is right for you. Also, keep in mind that some hostels have curfews.

There are many hostel options in Barcelona. Before seeking the hostel suitable for you, decide on your budget and on the type of room you would like.
