The word "hostel" usually conjures up images of bummy backpackers slumming it in old, basic, barren, cramped, shared accommodations, that and a really bad horror flick. This is definitely not case at Centric Point Hostel located Barcelona, Spain.

The atmosphere and vibe is laid back to compliment the prices which start at just over $30 for dorms or $80 for private rooms. While the amenities provide a hip and chic feel. Yes I’m using the word "amenity" in a blog about a hostel. Located in the heart of Barcelona, the very affordable digs include a common room outfitted with Internet access, music, satellite TV and a Nintendo Wii. They even toss in free breakfasts.

So if you are travelling to Spain on a budget but still want to stay in style, check out this new way to "rough it."
