The Centre Esplai ecological hostel was inaugurated in 2007 with all kinds of facilities: hostel, training rooms, auditorium, garden, etc. and about a year ago we decided to expand all these facilities! Fundesplai‘s activity is constantly growing and for us, it is very important to give a boost to the work we do for children, young people, families, the third sector and social and environmental transformation. All this with the support of the Prat de Llobregat City Council and the Generalitat de Catalunya!
Well, the time has come … we are very excited and excited to inform you that the new extension of the hostel, the new workrooms and the Agora are fully inaugurated! Want to know what these new spaces are like? Keep reading!
50 NEW ROOMS – the new extension of the hostel
The surface of this new extension of the Centre Esplai Hostel consists of 5,300m²! This has allowed us to create 50 new rooms, which translates into 150 places in total, as each of the new rooms has two single beds and a sofa bed! We can also find a reception with lobby, different living rooms and, of course, a games’ room with table football, billiards and table tennis!
The rooms, in particular, have a size of 20.80 m² and, as mentioned above, can be single, double or triple. These are suite rooms with a very spacious bathroom with shower! In addition, it should be mentioned that all of them are exterior, with a small balcony or window and lots of natural light!
14 New Workrooms and The Agora
Also, you can also enjoy the services we offer throughout the premises, such as the 14 new workrooms. These workrooms are fully-equipped, so you can do meetings, congress, training sessions, conferences, etc. And not only that! We also have inaugurated a space called Agora. We are sure you are going to love it!
All these benefits combined with the responsibility of being a fully sustainable building certified by BIOSPHERE (sustainable tourism) and EMAS (environmental improvement). Which is built with energy saving criteria, produces clean energy with solar panels and now also geothermal, has water saving systems up to 50% compared to a standard building with the same characteristics, has lighting with LED lights and solar tubes,…. in short, it is a building that helps us combat climate change and reduce the ecological footprint of our activities.

With activities and workshops for families and for all audiences, a KM0 and eco-friendly bar-cafeteria and even an escape room (the world’s first escape room on food).
