Q: I am a teacher at a school in Denmark. We are planning a tour to Barcelona with a school class and are looking for accommodation in or around Barcelona, it might be a camping site, a cheap hotel or youth hostel. Can you give us some information on the options?
A: You have different accommodation options in and near Barcelona, they usually depend on how big your group is and at what time of year you wish to travel.
We recommend you individually contact each campsite before your visit because they have different terms and conditions.
