Hola,

I have been recommending the following to people who have asked in the past.  I have never stayed there but from comments a nice clean place downtown area, gataccommodation.com  I live here and have a couch but wife would get mad as we are expecting our second child in a few months, and things are a little hetic.  I think right now around 60 euros or so…  Let me know if you need a certain area, but the below is near Plaza Catalunya, Ramblas, Plaza Universitat etc, easy bus or metro rides around…

Oh, if you get here by Sunday January 22nd, nice Carrer Foc, street fireworks to end the Sant Antoni festival around 8pm, get to run the streets with Diablos and loud firecrackers, safer way to hear loud explosions, and maybe get your hair singed.

It depends on where you want to be, what you to see and what you want to shoot. I would check out Abba Rambla which is on the Rambla de Raval, about 100 euros and opened this past summer. Stumbling distance from an absinthe bar, ex-prisoners of Franco, and the site of about 100 arrests for aiding terrorist groups. On the other side of the old town see Hotel Banys Orientals, stumbling distance from overpriced cocktails.
My experience with Gat Raval is that it is overpriced—for twenty-five bucks you get pretty much the same with the additive of black tobacco-encrusted walls.

I might just know of a debauched party hostel…but that likely wouldn’t suit the tastes of todays’ modern, sophisticated man.

Sorry Spencer, dont mean to divert this thread from its original destination, but a question for Robert, since he is living in barcelona and is our LS point man there:  Robert, are you familiar with the gallery scene there, and do you know of a place where someone can get a quick rundown on the types of photo galleries there that might be interested in documentary work?  I have researched via the internet, but the lists are just too long and disorganized to give me any sense of what is really going on.

If and when I ever develop a relation with some enterprising outfit there, I will then proceed to the next step and enquire into hotels.  Maybe I will like it so much I will retire there.

Not much on style, but very convenient to/from the airport, and in your price range (<US$100). Located above one of the train/subway stations.

You can always wander around Las Ramblas and find something cheap this time of year, depends what you are looking for, communal bathroom, private bath, pretty easy to find a place now. 

Hi Jon

I will have to think about that one as a couple come to mind, and I believe Fox lives here as well for quite some time, so maybe we can help you out and throw some ideas at yea…

The first thing that came to mind is H2O, and I am not sure http://www.h2o.es/menu.html 
Not sure with them, but something to check out.

I would check out http://www.kowasa.com/  

they have a lot of books on the 1st floor and a gallery on the 2nd dedicated to photgraphy

just off the top of my mind.

I will ask around and see, 

I know there are quite a few galleries or exhibtion space that cater to photography, is that what you are looking for?

Is Casa Asia in Barcelona

Here is something I found via here.

I will think about this one and get something for you but I rarely showcase documentary work, so I need to think about this one.

cheers

Hola Gringo, ¿que tal?  Thanks for chiming in.  Actually jonathan gave me some good tips, including Kultur Buro and some others.  Now I am hunting down info regarding the FotoEspaña festival.  Googling doesnt seem to help much, all I get is useless citations.  Who runs that thing and how do they solicit submissions, anyone know?
