Hostels vs. Hotels – Barcelona

Hostels vs. Hotels, Episode 3 – Barcelona

Barcelona

No matter the season, the sun always shines in Barcelona: the final destination in our, ‘Hostels vs. Hotels’ series! Tourists flock to this hot destination year after year in search of the rich culture unique to Barcelona. Whether you’re after some fantastic architecture, delicious food, or just some good ol’ fashioned beach time, you’ll find all of that – and more – here. And it doesn’t matter the time of year, or length of stay, Barcelona will certainly leave an impression on you!

Much like Amsterdam and Milan, Barcelona is an equally popular tourist spot, meaning you sometimes have to book well in advance to get a bed or a room in that highly coveted hostel or hotel. So be sure to do your research and book well ahead of time so you don’t end up disappointed.

Choosing Accommodation

Gone are the days of hotels being outrageously expensive and hostels being outrageously unclean and dangerous. Hotels have become more affordable, while hostels have become much more safe, exceptionally clean, and fun. But when it comes time to plan your own trip, where will you stay? Well, that depends on several things! Are you travelling solo? Is it for work? Do you like meeting new people? These are just a few of the essential factors to consider when choosing the right accommodation for yourself. So before booking anything, be sure to ask yourself these questions, and think about your general needs and expectations. Because at the end of the day, your choice of accommodation can make or break your vacation.

But maybe you don’t even know what a hostel really looks and feels like. Or maybe you’ve heard your Aunt Karen trash talk hostels, and you’re eager to prove her wrong. So to help you make that informed decision, our hosts cover all the topics you might be mulling over.

In The Series Finale

In the second episode of Hostels vs. Hotels, our hosts head to sunny Barcelona! Our hosts stayed at the famous and lively Kabul Party Hostel for one night, and spent their second night at a 5 star hotel. While we won’t reveal the name of the hotel (ya know, for legal reasons), we can assure you it’s a well known chain!

And they checked out both accommodation locations thoroughly. From the rooms, to the common areas, the social value, and even the basics like cleanliness, our hosts cover it all. They take you through what it’s like to be a guest at Kabul Party Hostel, as well as a fancy hotel. Who will win? You’ve got to catch the episode to see!

Hostels vs. Hotels, Episode 3 – Barcelona

We hope you enjoyed the series finale of Hostels vs. Hotels as much as our hosts enjoyed this experience. And as expected, in the case of Barcelona, the hosts seemed to have made their choice pretty clear for what they were looking for. The one issue they found was a lack of mirrors in the dorm room, but hey…if that’s all they could really criticise, that’s not too bad! While the hotel offered lots of great amenities and had very friendly staff, the hostel was much more suitable for them, especially for the sociability! Which one would you choose?
