I was thinking of going to Barcelona in the summer and I want to have the option of camping outside of the city or in some backpackers in the city itself? Does anyone have recomendations?
There are a lot of options for accommodation in Barcelona. Firstly go to an information booth in a train station or around the city to see what is available.
We stayed in a camping ground 40 mins from the city but in a fantastic location on the beach. It was called Tres Estrellas.
We also met another aussie guy who stayed in the university student apartments when he was there. I am not sure of the place but I think it was on wotif.com about 10 years ago
There are lots of places where you could stay in Barcelona city (but I would say that I haven't heard of any with a camping area), although during the summer the city is packed!
As I live here, maybe other travellers could give you better advice about where to stay. Anyway, I'll try a few places I heard of:
Barcelona Urbany Hostel (http://www.barcelonaurbany.com/) is the biggest Hostel in the city. They opened last year and received quite a lot of press. It's not expensive and not far away from Clot Station, from where you could easily go by metro to the city centre and by train to the beaches near Barcelona (which are cleaner than the ones in the metropolitan area).
Hostal Centric (http://www.hostalcentric.com/) is very centrical and having a look at the comments on Google, people seem to be quite satisfied.
Another place I always pass through on my bike is the Centric Point (http://www.centricpointhostel.com/). It's right in the middle of the city, in one of the most popular streets and next door to one of Gaudi's buildings (Casa Batllo). The hostel is part of a modernist building and it seems quite lively from outside.
Well, now CAMPSITES!! I know a few more of these , but I'll tell you my favourite:
Camping Kanguro (http://www.campingkanguro.com/) is half way between Sant Pol de Mar and Canet de Mar, about 50 min by train from Clot Station and a bit more from the city centre (Plaça Catalunya). You'll need to walk 1,5km from the train station, but the positive part is that the beach is not busy at all and the place is quite calm and clean. The prices are around 25 eur/night/tent and if you get a place with views over the beach it really seems like a French film scenery (the moon, the trees, the sea!).
I hope this helps... also take into account that Gracia Fest takes place in August. It's a traditional and famous Festival here and hostels might be a bit busier around that date. about 10 years ago
