Hostels in Barcelona centre more expensive?

Hostels in the centre of Barcelona are not inevitably the most expensive. Classified according to their distance from the city centre, there are very similar prices between those located in the centre and those a little further away. The hotels in the centre are simply more popular in summer and therefore more challenging to book. Two tips to get the best possible deals during your stay:

  • For cheap hostels in Barcelona try to make your booking as far in advance as possible.
  • Don't be afraid to be a little far from the centre, Barcelona is very well served by public transport and metro. Some hostels rent or lend bicycles, it is the ideal solution to get around town.

Barcelona Hostels near beach : a good option?

A hostel near the beach in Barcelona is obviously a fabulous option for your holiday accommodation. You can enjoy the sea and the famous chiringuitos (beach bars) during the day and the city in the evening.
