August is a smoking hot month for Barcelona. The average daytime temperatures are around 28°C (about 82°F) but Barna is not only hot in August temperature-wise, but also when it comes to street parties, concerts, music and outdoor film festivals. Let’s not forget: summer in the city is the best when the city has a beach to cool off, so Barcelona has it all. Hot summer vibes and beaches to relax. Hope you can spend the whole August in Barcelona?
Want to know what can be done close to the hostel?
Shopping, dining, fashion, design and more are all just steps away from The Hipstel, in the heart of Barcelona
Visitors to Barcelona should know about some of the interesting history of the neighbourhood in which the hostel The Hipstel is housed . The Eixample neighbourhood was created back in the mid-nineteenth century (1860) by architect Ildefonso Cerda, during the massive growth of the city that seemed to have no limit. This geometric design that joins the old city of Barcelona’s Gracia neighborhoods in the east, San Andrés in the north, and Sants in the south was delicately planned for the future, ie the present day.
The Spanish Formula 1 Grand Prix won’t be the only occasion when the Formula 1 teams will be visiting the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. This year, the Formula One Test Days are back with eight days of training (19th to 22nd February and 26th February to 1st March). The layout of the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is unique and it is the only venue on the Formula 1 calendar to host official test days and a Grand Prix.
