Looking for a thriving hostel filled with party animals or a quiet retreat? Either way, we’ve got you covered with the best hostels in barcelona.
If you’re looking for a place to stay where the party never ends, you don’t need to look much further than Kabul. This dorm sleeps twenty people per dorm room and therefore will not be suited for anyone looking for quiet time. Loud and rambunctious are both on the menu here with people passing in and out well into the early hours of the morning. It’s a great place for a fun week with no sleep
In search of a place with modern luxuries for a budget price? This is the hostel for you. You’ll find iPhone docking stations here and touch screens as well as a funky aesthetic that is quite fun and daring. It’s still a party house, but the dorms are a little more private with two person dorm rooms available. At twelve euros per person, the price is hard to beat too
Barcelona Central Garden
We’re sure backpackers are going to love this hostel. If not just for the fact that it’s one of the only hostels that can boast it has its own jacuzzi. Unfortunately, that jacuzzi isn’t for the drunk and disorderly. Rather, this is a place to relax in peace and comfort, perhaps settling with a good book on the terrace. You’ll find very few party animals here as any that stumble in by mistake are quickly shown the door
Mambo Tango Youth Hostel
If you want a little taste of Latin culture, this might be the perfect choice for you. It’s got a killer soundtrack that will thump through the walls until the late hours. You can party as much as you like here but drinking to excess is not welcome. The place has a friendly atmosphere designed to make people feel at home. There’s a bright splash of colour in the interior design except for the dorms that are decorated with a hint of minimalism.
Hostel One Paralelo
Fancy staying at a hostel in barcelona on the beach? We recommend this one because of the sunbathing possibilities and the fact it’s home to some of the city's best parties. It comes highly recommended because it turns a group of strangers into a sprawling family. It’s right near the heart of the action, and it’s the perfect place to wind down through the day, having a blast in the evening.
La Isla Hostal
This hostel feels more like a hotel, and the owners are very accommodating. It’s got a modern style, and it’s the perfect place to stay if you want to have an adventure. The rooms are beautifully clean, thanks to the high standards of the owners. Parties do occur, but you’ll also meet people who just want to relax and have a good time.
Sant Jordi Hostel Rock Palace
Another hostel with a pool and it’s quite a bit larger than a jacuzzi. This hostel certainly lives up to its name with rock parties raging well into the early hours. The beds are incredibly comfortable, and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. You’re also just twenty minutes from everything you could want in Barcelona.
Hostel Barcelona Arts & Culture
If you’re looking for a hostel with more culture, you’ve found it. The style of this hostel is incredibly artistic with beautiful displays on the walls. The real highlight is the common areas, though. In particular, the rooftop gives a beautiful and breathtaking view of the city surrounding you.
Jam Hostel Barcelona
Cheap and cheerful is the aim of the game here. You’ll be surrounded by people who are on a budget and loving every minute of it. The rooms are quite minimalistic, but there’s a decent sized kitchen. It’s more than grand enough for everyone to sit down and enjoy a good communal meal
Garden House Hostel
Or finally, you might be looking for somewhere that’s more secluded. This hostel is quite far away from the city, but it has great views and a wonderful atmosphere. It’s painted in beautiful colours and is a stunning budget getaway. You will have to travel to get there, but it will be worth it for the splendid isolation from urban life.
