El Masnou Hostel

Hostel El Masnou

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Named after the Catalan historian who brought scouting to the region, this hostel is a great base for those looking to enjoy the beach which is only a 10 minute walk away and is close to the centre of Barcelona.
Housed in a magnificent 1920s building, the hostel has been fully refurbished to a high standard and provides access for disabled guests.
Wander around the nearby marina, sample some of the fine Catalan food which is on offer or explore the maritime museum. Pay a visit to the Olympic City of Barcelona, south of the Maremse coast, in the town of Masnou.

It would have been good to have had a kitchen, somewhere to put food or make your own. As this is a youth hostel and youths generally don't have lots of money eating out for lunch and supper would get very very expensive. Other than that it was very good and nice breakfasts
