Hostels in the center of Barcelona
What could be better than enjoying the heart of a city? It is where the atmosphere is, where the wealth is and where there are more options for leisure and partying.
With a city the size of Barcelona, the best way to visit it is to stay in the center and see all that its heart has to offer without needing anything more than comfortable shoes and a map on your mobile phone or, if you’re into traditional charm, a good handheld fold-out city map.
These are some of the best hostels in Barcelona center to visit it from its very heart.

The Sagrada Familia
In 2020, the Sagrada Familia was the most visited monument in the whole country. An icon of the city of Barcelona, this temple, which began to be built in the 19th century, is still unfinished, although the optimists say that soon it will be finished. Its exterior is spectacular, but its interior is a real fantasy world that is hard to describe in words. Make sure you buy your tickets in advance because they usually sell out.
The Barceloneta neighborhood, in the Port Vell, is one of the most pleasant areas to stroll around and enjoy the city’s port, as well as some of its beaches. The History Museum, the Clock Tower and the shops of the Maremagnum shopping centre mingle with the narrow streets of its old buildings to create a charming landscape.
Following in Gaudí’s footsteps, Parc Güell, one of his most famous works, should not be overlooked. The park has a free area, the gardens, and a paid area, which includes the staircases, statues, and the skyline, although the entrance fee is less than €10.
