Hey guys,

We are going to be arriving in Barcelona in less then 12hours time... Where should a couple of aussie guys stay ?

Hostels seem rather expensive and we are thinking maybe a cheap hotel like the formula1 variety.

Any info would be appreciated...

Any girls who would like to share their bed ? that would be just as good. We are not fussy - In the accomodation that is !!!!



Cheers

Well, 12 hours out, I'm probably too late. But yes, accomodation in Barcelona is very, very expensive. I would say it ranks up there with Venice, believe it or not!

One bit of advice, if you DO find someplace cheap, location isn't that important, as the subway is very easy to use and get around. I bought one of the multiday passes and it was easy.

Oh, and watch out for crime: There are lots of petty criminals snatching purses and lifting wallets. Of course, a couple of Aussie guys likely won't be targets.

All bad stuff aside, Barcelona is a cool city -- I loved it. If you want to meet some other travlas, there is a bar called The Travel Bar on the Rambla, well, off on a side street, actually. As for the Gaudi buildings, I loved La Pedrera. If you're going to go inside one building besides La Sagrada Familia, pick that one. And don't forget to go out on the roof and see all the cool stuff he did with the chimneys. Nice view, too.

Have a blast, guys! (if you want details of my trip, check my website below)...

Try this place

Backpackers BCN
Carrer de la Diputació 323
00-34-93-4880280

It is a fantastic place, but fills up quick so you might be out of luck with it. There are plenty of hostels/private rooms/cheap hotels in the city. Check with the tourist office at the train station or wherever you arrive and they should be able to arrange a place. Barcelona is an incredible city so enjoy!
