Next opening in Jul/08

(Next opening in Jul/08)

We believe the true backpacker way of life means not only travelling around the world, making friends and sharing nice experiences but respecting the planet we live in.


With this concept in mind, the Urbany Hostel chain has had a great idea: To build the first Eco-Friendly hostel in Barcelona. But what does it mean?



The brand new Barcelona Urbany Hostel has been built with a special focus on environmentally friendly design and technology deployment.



When talking about environment and waste, everybody has heard about the three "R's": Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. The engineers have looked at the possible impacts of the project and choose to introduce some of the most innovative practices and methods to not only inflict minimal harm but to help protect the environment:


• Using a noise level absorbing façade

• Using a rain water harvesting system

• Recycling and reusing 50% of the water

• Using energy efficiency installations and low consumption lamps

• Using a more environmentally friendly and less aggressive materials


Besides that, the new hostel will represent all that Barcelona has to offer: a fresh, modern and fun atmosphere with a great design.



Imagine a centrally located 13 floors building with a total number of 400 beds, swimming pool and a huge terrace with nice views of the city. Comfortable rooms with individual lockers, universal plugs for your electronic devices and complete bathrooms inside every room.


It will be definitely a different option to that of the "typical hostels". The perfect place to explore the city, meet new friends and have a wonderful time in Barcelona.
(always respecting our planet :)
