Attention! There are two Hostal Centrals in Barcelona. Please take note of our address.

The easiest way to get to our hostel is the Aerobus. You can catch the Aerobus from outside both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. The Aerobus will then take you to the city centre where you can alight at Plaza Universitat.We are just in the corner of this quare. Tickets to both T1 and T2 cost €5.65 for a single and €9.75 for a return (return ticket valid for 9 days). This bus operates during the day between the hours of 05:00 to 00:15 at night from both airport terminals.

NitBus is the bus that operates between Barcelona Airport and the city centre during the hours of 21:50 (from T1) and 04:40 (from T1). Ticket price for a single is €2.

All official Barcelona taxis are black and yellow and are required to charge you only the value on the meter
Expect to pay around €25 for the journey into the centre from T2 and €30 for your journey from T1. There will also be an additional surcharge charge for each bag you're carrying. You'll find the rates displayed inside the cab.
