Spain's first eco-friendly hostel to open in Barcelona
The 13 story building, projected to hold 400 beds, is currently under construction and set to open in June this year. What makes it eco-friendly? Urbany promises a rain water harvesting system -- but isn't it usually sunny in Catalan?? --, energy efficient light bulbs and "more environmentally friendly and less aggressive materials."
Located 4 metro stops away from the center of Barcelona and only a short bike ride from the beach, it should be easily accessible to backpackers that want an environmentally but metropolitan option. You can't book a room just yet, but if you are traveling to Barcelona with a group of 20 or more this summer, and want to plan ahead, you can fill out Urbany's online form.
