While you're in Barcelone in the evening, grab some new friends from the hostel and go check out the "Magic Fountains" nighttime fountains/lights show (ask your hostel front desk person for directions).
Barcelone was really just a big city. It has some really amazing sites and a very pretty beach but it isn't a beautiful coastal city like those in France at all. The streets do not feel safe and the men were absolutely awful. From what I heard traveling it has a lot to do with blonde hair, but when in Las Ramblas and the surrounding area strangers and especially the shop owners harrassed me. They would literally not leave me alone and would follow me out of the stores trying to make me say I would date them and they would offer me huge discounts but not my friend. It was so bad we ended up leaving the area and going back to the hostel.
Gérone City is 103 kilometers to the northeast of Barcelona. It's a good tourist place, so many tourists fly into Girona on one of the many budget airlines and then make their way to Barcelona or the Costa Brava. The Girona Tourist Guide will help you arrange your visit to Girona in Spain.
While I enjoyed my stay in Barcelone, I would not rate it as a great city. I agree about the "criminal" feel to the city -- lots of cons trying to rip you off there. We visited in early May, and it seemed that there were hardly any natives at all! Granted, I am a tourist as well, but the city didn't seem to hold an authentic feel like a lot of other places I visited. I felt like I had to watch my back at all times while walking around day or night.
Look after your bags! There are many many thieves lingering in the metro stations and kind of push up against you and try and steal your things in your bags. So be cautious and hold on tight to your valuables. Barcelone is amazing though! The architecture and beach and sights and people are all fantastic. I suppose like in any place you have to be careful. It's also very easy to get lost in the laneways. And at nighttime there are many drug deals and dodgy people out that will try and sell you anything!
I visited Barcelone years ago. What I like most is D Ramblas. It was full of people. The Ramblas offers variety of tourist likings but watch your belongings as they were many thieves around. By the way, the city is beautiful with old buildings, plazas, trees, and monuments.
