If you arrive to Barcelona by plane, it’s easiest to get to us by the Aerobus. The shuttle bus leaves from the airport every 10 to 20 minutes and takes about 25 minutes to arrive in the centre. Get off at the last stop, Plaza Catalunya. The bus stops in front of the department store El Corte Inglés. Walk across the big plaza with your back facing El Corte Inglés. At the north west corner of the plaza, you will find  Ronda Universitat. Walk on the righthand side towards house number 17. The hostel is located in a historical building, and there is no hostel sign outside. Look up high for number 17. When you have found the hostel, ring one of the GREEN bells on the bottom row, and meet us on the entresòl floor ( the floor after the ground floor )

If you are using the elevator please press Ent button.

Unfortunately pickpocketing occurs frequently in Barcelona.

When you travel on metro or walk around town (especially Las Ramblas) always keep an eye on all your belongings (public transportation, airport, train, bus stations and tourist spots).

Be alert when someone walks up to you to ask for directions or similar. Often this is a means of distraction.  

To prevent being pick pocketed, we recommend to use money belts under your clothing to secure your important documents.
