We offer free internet and a café on the 8th floor that includes a sun terrace. We also have two computer suites that each house over 100 computers.

TEFL International in Barcelona offers you two types of accommodation: a private bedroom in a shared apartment or a home stay with a local family. Both options are located no more that 20 minutes from the school. All accommodation options are located within easy reach of a wide range of restaurants, cafes, bars and various other entertainment venues.

All accommodation is safe, clean and comfortable. You’ll always have your own private bedroom and will share the living spaces, kitchen and bathroom. Washing machines, towels and bed linens are provided.

Location of TEFL Course Accommodation

The cost of accommodation for the entire duration of the course ranges from US$ 500-575, depending on the room you’re allocated. Allocations are awarded on a first-come-first-serve basis so the earlier you make your deposit payment, the wider your choice of accommodation options.

Accommodation is available beginning the Saturday before the course begins and you’ll be able to stay through the Saturday after your course finishes. If you’d like to extend your stay with us by a few days on either end of the course, this can be arranged and extension costs are typically priced under US$ 30 per night.

Please be aware that a US$ 215 deposit is required for accommodation. This will be paid when you arrive on the course and it will be returned to you when you leave your accommodation—provided of course that you leave your accommodation in the same state as when you arrived.
