Urbany Hostel, Spain. The Urbany Hostel in central Barcelona is a hip, 13-floor property which opened in July.
The designers looked at innovative ways to respect and project de enviroment: they used a noise absorbed façade: installed a rain water harvesting system and low energy consumption lamps, and the hostel recycles and reuses 50 per cent of its water. Enjoy an all yo can-eat breakfast (included in the price) on the huge sun terrace, as well as other unexpected extras, such as free entrance to use the 25m pool, gym and sauna, and a trendy bar. Plus the dorms – with 400 beds- are ensuite, wich lockers, air conditioning and complimentary wifi. A dorm bed cost $16 per night (www.barcelonaurbany.com; 0034932458414).
