UGO Architects' rock hostel is a brilliant design proposal for a mountainous hostel. The proposal for the project, entitled 'Barcelona Rock,' was created for the international competition 'bohemian hostel for backpackers.'

Although the exterior of the hostel is a perfect for adventurous climbers, the interior is equipped with all of the standard necessities to unwind in a new city: fifty rooms (all with windows), a swimming pool, spa, gym, cinema and pub. The interior is even equipped with a beginner rock climbing wall for those not feeling up to climbing the exterior or who are in need of a little practice.

The proposal for the rock hostel in Barcelona is an innovative design that introduces an element of the natural landscape into the urban one. Stats for Rugged Rock Hostels Trending: Older & Buzzing
