Barcelona’s hostels are a great option for those wishing to enjoy a holiday in the heart of the city at a reasonable price, as the hostels are almost all in the city centre. For little money they are conveniently situated for visiting Barcelona’s main tourist attraction and places of interest. They are also well-connected through public transport to other parts of the city, and of course the airport.
Hostels differ from hotels in that they don’t reach the minimum services that are required in order to be licensed as a hotel. But that shouldn’t necessarily put you off – quite the opposite, in fact, because the lack of these services makes them more affordable than hotels for those people willing to sacrifice a few luxuries. Barcelona’s hostels often have a bar or a café downstairs, as an option for breakfast or snacks, and there is usually a service for changing or cleaning towels and sheets, but this really varies depending on the hostel. Many of Barcelona’s hostels are ideal for longer stays, especially as they would usually offer a favourable rate for guests wanting to stay for more than a few days.
