in Barcelona is not cheap but hostels are very
good. The general image of a youth hostel is a
manky old, run down flea-pit. That is not the
case in Barcelona. In many cases the hostels are
better than 2* and some 3* hotels. Hostels in
Barcelona are often very modern, very well-catered
and very comfortable. We have chosen the three
best hostels in Barcelona for you.
The hostel is located one step away from Plaza
Catalunya and Las Ramblas, in the most elegant
avenue and the best architectural walk in the
city. The quantity and quallity of modernist buildings
you can find in this street is unrivalled not
only in Barcelona but in any city of the world:
The Passeig de Gracia. See, you do learn something
everyday! Seriously though, you could not really
want for much of a better location than the Centric
Point. You are bang in the centre of all you need
to be in the centre of.
property has more than 400 beds from twin rooms
to 12-bed dormitories. The prices quoted are for
dorms. Bed linen and towels are included in the
price. Breakfast is also included. Some rooms
are en-suite, some have shared bathrooms.
Huge bar and common room, with satellite TV, and
music. Free broadband internet access. 24 hour
reception, 24 hour hot showers, no curfew, self-catering
facilities if required and lockers in all dorms.
Centric Point used to be a 5* hotel that was not
performing too well so it has been converted into
a hostel and a very good one at that. The location
is excellent, the service is good, the dorms are
tidy and functional. To make an expensive city
like Barcelona good value for a sports tour we
see this as the way forward.
