In terms of sightseeing, Barcelona’s unique sights are all located within a stone’s throw. Las Ramblas is a minute away - literally behind the hostel! After losing yourself for hours at Las Ramblas, the beach is a mere ten-minute walk from the hostel with all the other major attractions around the same neighbourhood. La Sagrada Familia is the only tourist attraction that one would have to take the train to. Kabul is located between the gothic neighbourhood of Barrio Gotico and the old town of Ciutat Vella - an unbeatable location for the price of the rooms.
