Best Hostels in Barcelona

Check out our picks for the Best Hostels in Barcelona, Spain.

Some hostels in Barcelona are of a high very standard and some of the best hostels get extremely high ratings on HostelWorld. There are 141 hostels in Barcelona and we have narrowed this down to the 10 best hostels in Barcelona.

When choosing a hostel in Barcelona or any other city, you should consider the following:

  • Check-in/Check-out times – Check-out time for most hostels in Barcelona is 12 noon. Check-in time for most hostels is between 2 pm and 4 pm. Please note that nearly every hostel in Barcelona offers Free Luggage storage before or after you check in or out.
  • Free WiFi – We all need WiFi when we travel. Every hostel will have WiFi but some won't have it in the rooms, they just have it in common areas. My advice is to read some reviews on the speed of the WiFi.
  • Kitchen – If the hostel you are staying at has a fully equipped kitchen, you can save money by cooking your own meals. Some hostels in Barcelona only have partially equipped kitchens.
  • Age Restrictions – With most hostels in Barcelona, you have to be between 18 and 39 years old, but with some youth hostel, you have to be under 35 to stay in a dorm. If you are want to stay in a private room, there are normally no age restrictions.
  • Costs - Hostels in Barcelona are some of the most expensive in Europe. In bed in a dorm room starts at €9 per night (normally large dorm rooms) in the off-season, but expect to pay €20 to €30 per night in a medium sized dorm room (6 to 10 beds) in the high season. As with all other major cities in Europe prices at the weekend tend to be 20% to 40% higher. Check HostelWorld to get exact prices for your dates.
