Barcelona. Where do we start? We can try to describe the famous landmarks that sprung from Gaudi’s imagination; we can tell you about the colourful markets, the passionate and energetic people, the cool urban beaches. We could tell you about random nights out in the city centre, bouncing from El Raval to Gotico and back again. Then there are the hostels themselves: cool, cheap youth hostels just right for solo backpackers; downtown hostels with large, group-friendly dorms. Hostels you’ll make camp in, make friends in, and sleep it off in. We could tell you about all of that and more. But Barcelona is one of those cities that you can’t really prepare for. Our advice? Just dive in. Order food you’ve never heard of; shake a leg with the locals; wander aimlessly down the Ramblas and let this truly international, individual and inspiring city take you on an unforgettable journey.
