Some friends and I are planning to backpack in Spain. It is the first time we visit this country and we are looking for nice weather, beautiful cities, town... beaches... having fun.
The cities we have in mind are: Malaga, Ibiza, Valencia, Barcelona and Madrid. What do you think?? Are they very far from each other..
Also, we would like some information about economic accomodation in each city..
Thanks a lot.
I haven't gone to Malaga, but visited several times the other 4 cities.. which are the most important in Spain.
Ok.. the tour you plan to do depends on where do you arrive and leave... I will assume you arrive to Madrid and also leave from there.
In Madrid I can recommend you Metropol Hostel. This place is very well located (Gran VÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Âa with Montera Street), It is really near the center, 5 minutes walking from "La Plaza del Sol", lots of restaurants, Plaza Reial,, like 15 minutes far from the Royal Castle, etc... Also, you have a bus and subway station just in front of it. If yoy want more information of bars and restaurants tell me.
In Valencia, I stayed at the "Las Arenas Youth Hostel".. we spend few time here,, but the place is fairly nice. The most important things to see are in the center.. apart from the beautiful buldings, the Plaza Central, Churches...is a beautiful Museum-Aquarium internationally recongnized. Don't miss it.. and have paella (I didn't know Valencia created this dish)
In Barcelona... once we stayed at Gothic Point Hostel.. basically because the staff from Metropol recommended it (I guess it's from the same chain). The place was nice, really near from the center, 5 minutes walking from Las Ramblas, The Cathedral, located in The Gothic Barri (el Borne).. There are a lot of restaurants, but near from main attractions...
I'm sorry, but in Ibiza we stayed with some friends..so we didn't pay for any hotel... But some friends stayed at an appartment and it was economic.. I recommend you avoid taking cabs, they're expensive.. you can take public transportation and it will take you the same time earning a lot of money.
