El Masnou Hostel

Hostel El Masnou

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Named after the Catalan historian who brought scouting to the region, this hostel is a great base for groups looking to enjoy the beach as well as being close enough to the centre of Barcelona to enjoy all the attractions.

Housed in a magnificent 1920s building, the hostel has been fully refurbished to a high standard and provides access for disabled guests.

With a packed programme of activities which have been devised for school groups – for students of both primary and secondary school age – you can tailor your stay to whatever is on the curriculum.

Wander around the nearby marina, sample some of the fine Catalan food which is on offer or explore the maritime museum. With a number of local festivals held throughout the year in the region you might have the chance to party with the locals. One of the biggest draws is the Festival of Masnou which takes place at the end of June. With fireworks on the beach, free concerts and competitions, this really is a Catalan experience worth taking part in!

So for your chance to mix a beach stay with some city excursions, then the Hostel El Masnou could be the one for your group.
