Can you get to know the family before travelling?
You will meet the family the day you arrive to Spain and to their home. All host families were checked and approved by the Expanish staff and the majority have worked with us for a long time and have hosted many students.
Is it only one student per homestay?
We have several host families with whom we work and some families can accommodate one student at a time, others can host many at the same time. Many of our hosts have only one available room, so we cannot guarantee you will be with other students. If you prefer one or another option, you can make it clear when you register and we will do everything possible to fulfill your special request within our host family network.
Do all homestays have WiFi?
Yes, all Homestay in Barcelona have guaranteed access to Wi-Fi.
Where are the homestays located?
All of our Homestays are located in the best neighborhoods of the city and always at a distance of maximum 30` to Expanish School. You can go walking or take the public transport, bus or subway. Some example location neighborhoods are Sants-Montjuic, Les Corts, Sant Gervasi, Eixample, Gràcia,Sant MArtí, Sant Andreu, Nou Barris y Ciutat Vella.
When is the accommodation reserved?

Can I use the kitchen? The washing machine?
The Homestay option does not include use of a kitchen as the Family Host will provide Breakfast and Dinner.

If you prefer a similar accommodation option with access to kitchen, we recommend you the Shared Apartment.
