Some friends and I are planning to backpack in Spain. It is the first time we visit this country and we are looking for nice weather, beautiful cities, town... beaches... having fun.
The cities we have in mind are: Malaga, Ibiza, Valencia, Barcelona and Madrid. What do you think?? Are they very far from each other..
Also, we would like some information about economic accomodation in each city..
Thanks a lot.
I'm traveling to Ibiza this end of august and i've checked ton of possible places to stay, as far as my research led to me, i didnt find any real hostels but did find a 3 star hotel which was the cheapest accomodation I could find otherwise. You might have to go that way. Also make sure to check out the hippie markets!
Malaga is about 5 hours by car from Madrid (8 by bus). Maybe a bit less from Madrid to Valencia and about 3 hours from Valencia to Barcelona. To get to Ibiza, you will have to take a few ferries, probably. Cheapest accommodation in spanish cities are hostel (hostales). I know that there are many in Malaga, around the train station and in the centre of town. A good and not expensive one in the centre is called Hostal Larios. There is also Hostal Alameda.
