Share a hostel room?

Last year at DrupalCon Brussels I shared a 4 bed hostel room with 3 other Drupalers. This was:

- cheap (breakfast included)

- safe (no backpack people entering and leaving in the middle of the night)

- convenient (each one gets a key)

 

I'd like to arrange this in Barça as well. Anyone interested? (Anyone knows of a good place to stay?)

 

I'm staying from the 18th until the 24th. And I'm recovering from knee surgery, so I'm looking for a place close to Plaça Catalunya train station. (I might even take a taxi to the DrupalCon center, so we could share that too.)

Hi Gaele

I was one of those people in the room in Brussels, but I've already managed to get a hotel for this year.

There's no big company paying my expenses, so that sounds like a good idea to me.

Let me know if something is happening here. I'm still looking for reasonably priced accommodation - since my flights are so expensive.

I too am looking for a room / roommate...

I'm coming in from New York, and would love to share with anyone who has a room! :)

Best,

Centric Point Hostel - Excellent

Hi there

In November last year I stayed at the most fabulous hostel ever. I did a round-the-world trip and stayed at _many_ hostels and this was by far the nicest one. Facilities all clean and new (the bedrooms & the bathrooms), beautiful building recently renovated, AWESOME location, staff friendly and professional and most importantly free wifi! I know this sounds like an advertisement but I assure you I'm not affiliated in any way. The area feels a little more upmarket and safe than Las Ramblas but is in comfortable walking distance of them as well.

Here's the info from when I booked last year. It ended up costing about twenty euro a night which included a continental breakfast.

Metro: Passeig de Gracia stop - green and yellow lines.

bah!

you're probably right, but there's no availability on more than one night out of the essential ones, so that's a no go really :(

Thanks

Having found out how far away from the DrupalCon my hostel was, I went looking for a hostel closer to the center of Barcelona. And Centric Point Hostel sounded just perfect, so I booked a bed there for the days when the DrupalCon is on. This way, I'll get two quiet days in a peaceful hostel on the outskirts of town, and then stay in the heart of Barcelona and near the important metro stops while the DrupalCon lasts. Perfect :)

In other words: Thanks for the tip!

Itaca Hostel

I decided to stay at Itaca Hostel. It's close to Catalunya and Ramblas, and looking all right from the pictures and reviews. Breakfast not included but available. €22 for a bed in an 8 bed dorm. Currently 5 more beds available.

Also at Itaca

Gaele,

Thanks for sharing that link. I've reserved a bed there too. See you then,
