Looking for good advice regarding a trip to Barcelona (we know nothing at all about this city, so sorry for any silly questions).
My daughter (18) wants to spend a few days in Barcelona (August 9-13th approx). We live in Canada but she'll be arriving from Venice as we have family there. She wants to stay in a youth hostel (budget reasons of course) but I'm a bit nervous due to total lack of knowledge about hostels. As a solo 18 yr old girl, could someone advise if this is reasonably safe? recommend one (or not!!) and how would youth hostel compare to a b&b? Would it be safe to go out alone at night? (She's very independent and speaks good Spanish-but that doesn't reassure me she'll be safe....I would appreciate any guidance. Thanks a lot!
