New Tourist Tax in Barcelona and Girona

From 1st November, tourists — local, national and foreign alike — who stay at hostels will pay € 0,72 per night in Barcelona and € 0,50 in Girona per night.

Tourist under 16 will be exempt (photocopy or National ID or passport must be provided at check in).

Tourist Tax will be only applied the first 7 nights.

Turn your suitcase into a shelf

Are you the kind of person who likes to build its own furniture? Do you like to recycle your old stuff to give them a second life?

The staff at Equity Point Lisbon had a great idea and turned a suitcase into a different book shelf that fits perfectly the common room of the hostel.

We have posted the pictures of all the process at Facebook so you can do it yourself at home.

I love the idea and how it fits Equity Point Lisboa’s common room decoration, don’t you?
