What is it like to live in Barcelona? Would you recommend it? What is the city like?

Highly recommend!! I live slightly outside of the city (Sant Just) but have friends who live in center, it's amazing. Every night out is unforgettable, everyone is insanely kind.

What is the student lifestyle like in Barcelona?

Going out to clubs, going to skateparks or simply having a conversation with someone over asking for a light. It's incredibly easy to make friends.

How much does it cost to live in Barcelona?

Around 500 a month to live decently well.

Is it difficult to find accommodation in Barcelona? Is there any advice you can give?

Usually not, make sure the house is good infrastructure and pipe systems as they are often old. Also avoid sketchy neighborhoods like el Raval or close to the Port.

What is the food like? What are your favourite dishes?

Very simple, but incredibly good. I love pan amb tomate, paella, tortilla, any other tapas. There is a lot of everything, and lots of vegan options :)

What places would you recommend visiting in Barcelona?

Montjuïc!! It's incredible. The beach Barceloneta is nice but usually crowded. Taking the train for 30 minutes gets you to Casteldefels or Sitges, which are beautiful beach towns super close to BCN.

Is it good to eat out in Barcelona? Can you tell us your favourite spots?

Yess, fairly cheap as well. My favorite spots are Veggie Garden, Roots & Rolls, Thai Barcelona, Vegan Bowls.

Is the nightlife good in Barcelona? Where is good to go?

It's amazing. The clubs at the beach (Shoko, Pacha, Opium) are some of my favorites, although can be dangerous with drugs or being invited to after parties. Voodoo club in Sala Upload is amazing. Also, there are usually local parties like La Merce which are great fun.

What advice would you give future students heading to Barcelona?

Be open and friendly as soon as you arrive, and heed your belongings as there are rising crimes and thefts.
