5 Best Hostels in Barcelona, Spain

Updated: February 22, 2021

If you are fortunate enough to find yourself in Spain, you will not want to miss out on seeing Barcelona. This coastal city is filled to the brim with amazing sights and activities.

Barcelona lies on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, so you can enjoy chilled-out days lounging on the beach with a drink in your hand. Or, you can take on the city and the countless stores, museums, parks, and restaurants within it. The infamous artist known as Antoni Gaudí has many works all around Barcelona, such as his houses lining the street and the positively jaw-dropping La Sagrada Familia. The Barcelona City History Museum is a fantastic spot if you consider yourself to be a history buff.

Park Güell is another extraordinary spot in Barcelona, and it also boasts the work of Gaudí. If you are on the hunt for some entertainment and tasty food, make your way to Las Ramblas which is a pedestrian boulevard lined with numerous stores and restaurants. Make sure you do not head out of Barcelona without trying some of their paella, too!
