If you’re coming by bus from El Prat Airport, get the AeroBus blue service, which goes from Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. It’s under €6 to Catalunya Square and it’ll only take 30 minutes. From there get on the Metro L3 line and head to Diagonal station.
From Nord Bus Station, catch the number 39 bus. Get out in Rossello-Bruc then walk one block and you’ll be at the Barcelona hostel.
A city so good Freddie Mercury wrote a song about it. There’s a great beach, jaw-dropping architecture with world-class eating, drinking, culture and football. There’s so much to love that it’s hard not to fall head over heels for the Catalonian capital.
You'll find Generator Barcelona, hotel and hostel, in the buzzing district of Gracia. The hostel’s just a short walk from Gaudi's iconic Casa Batllo apartments. The interiors showcase a mix of styles and include an oversized wooden birdcage, a winding staircase and a mezzanine chill-out lounge.
