It is a electronic card which include 33 popular interesting activities or park to visite, but for some very popular place, it need to 24 hr prior time to book.

I think jam hostels would be great to enjoy traveling with friends.

  5. Always find the perfect accommodation at Club Club, enjoy great hostels in Barcelona! I’m looking at the best cheap hostels in Barcelona or simply do a search with the search option above to find the ideal accommodation for anyone interested in guest reviews, a complete description of the accommodation, photo gallery, and maps of hostel positions. Also provide the best accommodation for the paid amount of your stay with exclusive client discounts I have Membership Cards, Erasmus Students and Group Discounts. Thanks for the presentation.

  6. Hello Renata, I must say that this article is very helpful and informative. I have been to Barcelona many times but unfortunately, I did not have a chance to stay in some of these beautiful hostels. My favorite one is Mediterranean Youth Hostel, it would be great to visit it and stay for a couple of days. 

  7. Good day. Great job, your sites great. I lonely see a couple things that might your more enjoyable for the visitor are make the font a little larger so people can read it better and adjust the line-height. And maybe change accent color to something different. in my opinion the yellow is not really working to grab the viewer’s attention. Maybe add a photo gallery and or a short youtube video of people traveling and visiting different sites.  I hope this is some help to you. Good and best wishes Chuck 

  8. As one who has never traveled to Spain let alone Barcelona your evaluation gave me a mini-tour of what to expect. Thanks Renata. I’m glad to see that some facilities offer sound-proofed rooms and dark curtains for individual beds! The free walking tours and cultural immersion opportunities are quite thoughtful too. The vibrancy of this city clearly shines through your article and what better way to “turn it up” than to cater for travelers on all kinds of budgets.

    We are Blessed.

  9.  Barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and I have always wanted to travel there and see it for myself instead of seeing it on TV. But expenses always stood in the way of making my dream come true. And that is why I was looking up hostels in Barcelona because I know hostels are pocket-friendly. Also, Barcelona is one of the cities I want to visit in Spain.

    Your List of the best hostels in Barcelona is really captivating. My favorite on your list is the Rodamon Barcelona Center. I like that they are located right in the center of the city, which means I can easily access transportation and I can take a stroll through the city and take pictures in the Gardens of Palau Roberts, and Passeig De Gracia.

    The other thing I like about Rodamon, is that its stylish, clean and the bunk beds are fitted with personal light and power socket, to charge my devices. also if I just want to sleep, I can just close my darkened curtain and the light from the neighboring bed will not bother me perfect.

    Thank you for this review.
