Barcelona’s youth hostels are ideal for young travelers. In most cases they provide the most basic facilities, resulting in the cheapest accommodation. The fact is that many of the tourists who visit Barcelona are young, often travelling on a tight budget, and they would prefer to spend their money on enjoying the activities that the city has to offer, rather than on the place in which they are staying. Youth Hostels are therefore one of the most sought after types of accommodation in the city.
Some of the best Youth Hostels in Barcelona are privately owned, but many are owned by the city or the Generalitat de Catalunya. In each case they generally have the same characteristics, with rooms that are normally for a minimum of 4 people, in somewhat confined spaces, with shared bathrooms and communal areas – it’s ideal for groups, and also for meeting people.
One of the advantages of staying in a youth hostel in Barcelona, as well as being very cheap accommodation, is that of location, since they are usually found right in the heart of the city centre, within walking distance of most of the cultural sights and entertainment attractions.
