I'm off to Barcelona for 4 nights in January, and I need to book a hostel.
I've looked at the following:
Downtown paraiso hostel
Kabul backpackers hostel
Alberguinn youth hostel
Gothic point hostel
All are close to la rambla, priced about the same, so which should I go for? or can anyone recommend another one?
I just want a clean hostel with a good common area, not too loud so i can get a good nights kip if needed.
I heard really good stuff about kabul backpackers but check hostelworld for ratings
Alberquinn is really far away from the inner city. if possible dont stay there. It is fine comfort wise, but it is just a hassle to stay there.
I stayed in Itaca Hostel quite some years back (think it was 2002) and really enjoyed staying there. Small hostel, they make your beds every morning. Very close to Plaza Catalunya, the La Rambla and just at the back of the Cathedral.
Seems that they are still in business and reviews from hostelworld rate this Hostel to be 88% still!
