Location Information

Backpackers BCN is right in the middle of the Eixample Esquerra (the left of the Eixample), surrounded by bars, restaurants, banks, supermarkets and clubs. The nearest metro stations are Universitat and Urgell, both in L1, red. It takes 15 minutes on foot to get to Plaza Catalunya and about 35 minutes to get down to the port. If you want, you can even walk to the Sagrada Familia (35 mins) or to other interesting places such as Casa Batlló (10 mins) or Casa Milà (20 mins). If you need to go to Sants Train station or to Estació del Nord (to take the bus to Girona) yo'll find that the public transportation is very convenient. If you need to take the bus to the airport, there's a bus stop for the Aerobus just two blocks away from here. It doesn't matter where you are, it's always easy to come to the hostel.
