Barcelona on a student budget

by marisavsc

Hi- we are 4 female students who are going to be travelling through Europe in June and July. We are going to be in Barcelona for maybe five days in late June, and we are on a tight budget! Does anybody know about any good hostels, markets, resturants, things to do, events, etc. that are cheap/free?

I am a budget traveller, but don't stay in hostels.

If you are interested in a good budget hotel I can recommend the Hotel Urquinaona

Full details on my Barcelona page, Tips/Hotels & Accommodations.

See my Barcelona page also for tips on inexpensive/free walking tours and restaurant.

Re: Barcelona on a student budget

You may have a look at my Barcelona VT page too, as most of my tips there are of free or budget places.

Be sure you are here on June 23-24. The night of 23 is Sant Joan's Eve, the summer solstice celebration and the "offical" beginning of summer season. It's celebrated with traditional "correfocs", bonfires and fireworks, and all nigh parties, especially at the beaches. There will be free concerts and you can do as cheap as you want: just grab some drinks, ice and food from a supermarket and head to the seaside.

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Don't miss the Neu Camp, it's too big anyway.

by JohnnySpangles

Go see the Neu Camp Stadium, it's the biggest footy ground in Europe. There are some wondrous sights in the world but the sight of this shrine to the glorious game brings tears to your ears. You also get a tour of the FC Barcelona Trophy room (not cabinet). Just turn up and, for a nominal fee, they'll let you roam the stadium. Warning: Don't attempt any silverware theft as the Spanish police can overreact a bit. I lost my leg in the ensuing skirmish.

Another breathtaking panorama...

by Pegasus74

Another breathtaking panorama of Barcelona can be snapshot from Montjuic Hill, where the 1992 Olympics were held. The top is ascendable via funicular and cable car from the waterfront. Apart from the Olympic Center, there are also several important museums including the National Museum of Catalan Art and the Archaeological Museum.

Barcelona is literally as gorgeous as what I had imagined it to be. I will be looking forward to go back again, to take in the sights, sounds and smells of this brilliant city. If this is one of where you plan to stopover, you sure have planned to make a home run.

HOME COOKING PAELLA

by listenandlearn

CONTINUATION OF OUR HOME COOKING PAELLA:

4.Heat another 3 tablespoons of oil in the paella pan. Add the onions & cook for 2 minutes, then add the garlic & paprika & cook for an additional 3 minutes until the onions are soft but not brown.
5.Add the drained rice, beans, peas to the paella pan & stir until coated in oil. Return the chicken thighs and chorizo & any accumulated juices to the casserole. Stir in the stock saffron liquid, salt, pepper and let it boil while stirring.
6.Reduce heat let it simmer without stirring for 15 minutes * or until the rice is almost tender - most of the liquid has been absorbed.
7.Arrange the mussels, shrimps, sweet pepper strips on top. Cover the casserole - continue simmering without stirring for about 5 minutes until the shrimps become pink, the mussel’s open.
8.Discard any mussels that are not open. Taste & adjust the seasoning. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve at once.

PLEASE NOTE: Unlike risotto, the rice for a good paella is not & NEVER sticky with sauce, yet each grain should be moist with olive oil.
Stirring disrupts the way the rice cooks. Gradually lowering the heat as the liquid reduces, and giving the paella pan a shake, will help to prevent the rice sticking.

champaneria

by racheljapi

Located near the beach in Barcelona, the Champaneria is always packed during warm weather. Come into this place, buy a tapa and then purchase a bottle of champaign for 4.5 euros. It's in Barceloneta. You will have to ask around for directions, but trust me, it's worth it!

Come and see colour and what wonderful smells

by bisous333 about La Boqueria / Markets

I was amazed to find this market just off La Rambla, its called Mercat de San Josep, such wonderful attack on the senses, colours, sights, sounds, smells all the fruits and vegetables I have ever heard of and more. Not to be missed even if it's just to wonder around. Fruit, vegetables, drinks, chocolate, meat, everything Whatever is on the boards, haven't tried bargaining
