There are enormous choices for hostels and budget accommodation in Barcelona. Well if you are travelling on a budget or perhaps as a Solo traveller, I would opt for hostels.
You can get cheap hostels accommodation from €15/night during the week and more like €30/night at the weekend. May to September is a peak season, the city is very crowded with visitors and many of the better hostels sell out quickly. It’s always better to book in advance.
Itaca Hostel is very centrally located near Plaça Catalunya, Passeig de Gràcia and Barcelona Cathedral in one direction and Barri Gòtic, La Rambla, the Aquarium and the beach in the other.
Kabul Party Hostel: If you are looking for fun and love to socialise Kabul hostel is the best place to stay. Very well located in the heart of the old Gothic quarter, just a few feet from La Rambla and a stones throw away from many bars and clubs.
Sant Jordi Hostel Rock Palace: This is yet another fun hostel to stay. The hostel is located in the middle of the trendy neighbourhood, where you’ll have endless options for the best brunch spots, tapas bars and places to grab a Latino-style cocktail. The Passeig de Gràcia metro station is just a 5-minute walk away.
Hostel One Paralo: This is a great Hostel for Solo Travelers. The hostel also organizes regular parties and takes guests out to some of the most popular clubs and bars around town. It is a walking distance to many of the main sights such as La Rambla.
Airbnb is also another option where you will find a decent price.

The first thing that comes to your mind when you are in Barcelona is Paella. It’s not easy to find a good Paellas or Tapas. No, we do not get good Paellas in La Ramblas. Locals avoid eating out in La Ramblas. Paellas are worth trying and you can also find Vegetarian options. These 4 restaurants serve the best Paellas. 7 Portes, Cheriff, Can Solé, La Mar Salada.
Barcelona is popularly known for its art and architecture the famous Antoni Gaudi. His work is one of it’s kind. His famous work including Parc Guell, Casa Mila and Casa Batilo are worth visiting.
Discover the Gothic Quarter This is the most beautiful part of Barcelona, taking in the facades of walls, buildings, and old castles. You will also come across some lovely little shops, and some excellent bars and restaurants. this is my favourite part of the city Historic.
Spend your time at the Beach, I love spending my time and getting tan at this stretch of golden sand beach which faces on to the Mediterranean.
On Bike, In Barcelona, there are various options to rent a bike. Numerous bike rentals will equip you with everything you need.
Free Walking tour is another option. It means you are free to ‘tip’ your guide as you see fit after your tour. This type of tour can last between 1-4 hours.
Don’t miss the daunting Sagrada Familia, A unique style by Antoni Gaudí. As to how beautiful it looks from the outside is as beautiful inside the Sagrada Familia. These minute carving details are impeccable.
If you want to discover Gaudi’s work and modernism at it’s finest then you shod definitely shouldn’t miss it. Take a tour inside it’s worth it! The Ticket is from €25
This is another building design by Gaudi and is the last building of the ingenious architecture of Antoni Gaudi. The roof is also the highlight here. How Gaudi plays with colours and light is unique.
Tibidabo is a hill overlooking Barcelona. this is indeed a breathtaking view. The best way to get there is to catch the 196 Bus. Tibidabo is an amusement park and the top of Tibidabo is crowned by the cathedral del Sagrat Cor.
Metro: Barcelona is well connected with metros. Currently, the major network operated by TMB consists of 8 lines. The L9(orange) connects the Airport with Barcelona city. The T-Casual card allows you to make ten trips on all lines and it cost €11.35
Buses: Barcelona has night buses which begin between 10:40pm and 11:40pm and ends between 5am and 6am. I would recommend buying a day ticket “Hola BCN”- it’s cheaper.
Taxi: In Barcelona taxi are reasonably priced. All taxi is using the taxi meter.
Apart from all the public transportation apparently you do not need a car to get around the city. You can walk and ride a bike
