After about 30+ hours travel to get to Barcelona, I think I will need a good nights sleep before making my way to Hendaye.
Can anyone recommend some budget accommodation in Barcelona near the train station or the airport.
Probably the airport would be best as I arrive quite late.



Barcelona is a very expensive place for accomodation. I discovered a brand new hostal .they just opened last month after complete rennovations..it is owned by two sisters from Chicago..location easy to get to as you just take the airport bus for a few euro to Plaza Catalyuna..the hostel is a very short walk from there...it is in the Exiample area...and it has a mix of room types..the least expensive is the 6 bunk gender dorm rooms for 23 euro..or if you want a single private room after your long flight it is 40 euro...I found these prices inexpensive ....for Barcelona!

I have a reservation there for a few days in June after my Camino....be sure to tell Lauren that Marilyn Rushton recommended them and that you are a pilgrim....their web site is http://www.somniohostels.com

Hope this helps!

Thanks Marilyn....I did check out the link for the hostel you suggested and it looks great. I may indulge in a room for myself after my epic journey across the world. With my experience on the Camino Francais, I guess it will probably be my last good nights sleep for a month.
Reprobus, I will probably reach Barcelona on the 24 June or thereabouts...and you?
