Cost of living in Barcelona

Condividi su Facebook

Even if Barcelona is not the heaven (talking about prices) it used to be 15 years ago, it’s still an affordable town to live.
To give you an idea, I've put together this list of prices

Single room: Depends from the area. From 250 to 400 euros per month

Double room: Still, depends from the area. I would say from 350 to 450 euros per month

Studio: through the Spanish circuit (have a look at the accommodation guide): from 400 to 650 euros

Electricity: 0.08 euros per kWh

Telephone fee: depends on the telephone company you choose: with Telefonica it’s about 10 euros per month (excluded calls)

Full launch: less than 10 euros (in a cheap restaurant)

Baguette: 0.60 euros

1 litre of milk: 0.85 euros

Dinner out: more or less 20 euros per person

A beer: 2 euros

A beer in a Club: 4/5 euros

A ticket for a Club (in case you don't have free entrances or friends at the door): 10/15 euros (1 drink included)

Gym: around 40/50 euros per month

Metro ticket: 1.20 euros for 1 ride

Paperback book: 8 euros

Cinema ticket: 6.5 euros

Internet: depends on your provider. Normally around 30 euros per month

 These are the prices I remember: they might not be 100% exact, but they're ok to give you an Idea.

The average salary for newcomers are around 1100 euros. With this money you can have quite an easy life in Barcelona (of course…you will not live like a star !).

In general, if you’re a single, with a salary of: 

1000 euros: you live in Barcelona in a shared flat

1500 euros: you live in Barcelona in studio all for your own. Otherwise you can still share a flat and have an higher life standard (bars, clubs, nights out etc. etc.)

2000 euros: you can live in Barcelona in flat of your own with an enjoyable life standard

2500 euros or more: …you’re the king of Barcelona !
