Types of accommodation in Barcelona
Hostels are obviously very cheap and you can find some real bargains out there. They offer a variety of facilities including free breakfast, linen and towels, internet and more. They are also great for meeting people, however, they can lack privacy and you may not get a good night sleep depending on how many people you are sharing a dorm with.
Camping could be an option if you want to get in touch with nature, camping is also a cheap option. Although most campsites are located outside of the city, some offer free shuttle buses. If you want to stay in Barcelona and have quick access to all the sights, then camping probably isn’t your best bet.
Apartments are a cheaper alternative to hotels and offer more privacy. You can also further save money by cooking your own meals and trying out some traditional Spanish recipes for yourself. Apartments can be a great option as you can experience for yourself just how great living in Barcelona is and save money at the same time.
Room in a shared apartment is a good alternative to these if you want something cheaper than an apartment but a step up from a hostel then renting a room in a shared apartment is a perfect option. It is a great opportunity to meet people and have your own private space to relax in.

Staying in the very centre of Barcelona in areas such as Las Ramblas or the Gothic Quarter in Ciutat Vella can be expensive. If you get lucky, there are some bargains to be had, but it may be cheaper to look elsewhere at areas outside of the centre such as Les Corts, Sants or Badalona. These areas can be not only cheaper but also allow you to explore a lot more of the city other than just the centre.
