    Accommodation

    You will sleep in a private room. We live in a big flat located downtown Barcelona. It is ten minutes away from Catalunya Square (considered the very center of the city). The flat is beautiful and fashions the typical modernist Catalan style of the 1880's.
    There is Pedro´s room at one end, with a balcony, a couple of sofas. He loves chatting, playing music (dj), sport, dance and many others nice things. Pedro loves traveling, speaks very good English and is very easy going. He has been traveling around Asia with workaway and couchsurfing. You will find him very entertaining and he will help you in anything you need related with the youth (clubs, parties, sports, etc...)
    Then there is the kitchen, just a normal kitchen with everything you need. We have two bathrooms, a very big one fully equipped and a small toilet.
    Then there is the living room, with TV and a couple sofas. The living room is next to my room. Also we have a very big terrace you can access through the living room.
    Your room is just in from of the big bathroom. It´s small but has got a window. You also have a table, room to store your clothing and wifi.

    What else ...

    This beautiful city is full of what European cities are known for (outdoor markets, restaurants, shops, museums and churches) and is fantastic for walking with an extensive and reliable Subway system for more far-flung destinations. The core centre of town, focused around the Ciutat Vella ("Old City") provides days of enjoyment for those looking to experience the life of Barcelona while the beaches the city was built upon provide sun and relaxation during the long periods of agreeably warm weather.
