From El Prat Aiport (you have 2 options, we recomend the bus shuttle)

The Aerobus goes directly from outside the terminal (signs in the terminal building) and it costs 5,75 one way or 9.95 return. Get off at Placa Catalunya- Walk 4 blocks montain direction on Rambla de Catalunya up to Valencia st and then up to the 266.

From the airport there is only one train so you can't miss it.You will need to connect the metro and get off at Passeig de Gracia station, only 5 minutes from the hostel.

We recomend the Aerobus because is direct and faster.
