Sorry guys, but help is rarely any help. I noticed alot of people on the board mentioning they were going over the winter. If any of you did go and stayed in an apartment, could you tell me approx. how much you payed? Or if you feel you got a good deal and still remember the agency/landlord's contact info, please hook it up

The apartment I'm staying in now is kind of a strange situation.  We got this place through a friend of my friends dad thinking we'd be here ourselves, and it turned out that when we got here we found out that we'd be living with the rest of the family that's here which is, the dude, his wife, and his kid in a 4 room apartment.  They all had their room, and we took 2 of the other rooms.  Then 2 weeks into us being here his friend and girl friend move into the one remaining room.  Now 2 months goes by and the dude is suddenly moving into a smaller apartment, and renting his families room out to 5 fucking other dudes, bringing the grand total here to 13 people living in the tiniest apartment ever.  And he never said a word about them coming till they just all show up and hog the kitchen and shower one night, we were fucking pissed.

We pay 200 a month (i only paid 400 for Feb 20th to april 28th), for everything, that includes all the utilities.  He's making major bank off all of us, but we feel like it worked out for us really well too, even aside from putting up with 5 other people here for the last 2 weeks we're here.  We're staying right on the red line in between the Torrassa and Florida stops in a building called Avd. Catalunya.  Don't think this will be much help, but I figure I'd throw it out there.

On the carrer de Hospital there is a youth hostel for 20 euros a night, but the house next to it is used to rent appartments to tourists. We did that with 4 people for a week and paid slightly less than those 20 euros a night. I don't know the exact house number anymore. But you should be able to find it via the youth hostel in the same street.

I moved out here in Novemeber and have had 2 different apartments since weve been here.

were paying a combined total of 350Euros a month for both for everything.  Same price at the last place.
Thats a pretty standard "cheap" price for a room.  I live out by Placa de Sants, its less than a 10 minute skate to the center, close to tons of non-center spots, and its a pretty rad neighborhood thats mostly spanish types and not as many tourists.
I have some friends that pay 250, and some that pay 500, so 350 is pretty much a standard price.

if youre staying for a shorter time, get a holiday rental - its usually like 20 a night, or 120/week/ person

the best site to find things is Loquo.com  its like the spanish craigslist - with casual encounters to lurk on too

hit me up with a pm if you need more help.

Live on 5euro a day, yes. but it's bare minimum, no weed, no beer, only bread, meat, cheese and bottled water. 10-15euro a day is a little more realistic. also the hostels are 20-30euro in the summer/tourist season, and 10-20euro in the off season.
I was there for a year, and had 4 different apartments, the cheapest i paid a month was 180, and the most expensive was about 300, it all depends on who you know or how lucky you are.
