    Give yourself ample time to move through the station and make connections. Keep an eye on your belongings, it's easy to become a victim of bag thieves who use distraction to walk off with your stuff.

    They've got a great fully automatic luggage storage here. Pay 4-5 euros for 24 hours depending on the size of your bag and be free to have a walk around the city with no load on your shoulders.

    The left luggage storage area is located towards the rear of the station and is next to McDonald's and the Telefonica phone shop. It is a secure area manned by guards 24 hours a day.

    Friendly apartment near Sants. So spacious, ideal for sharing a wonderful stay with your friends. It's just five minutes from Sants Station. www.barcelona-home.com

    Don't bother being super organised and buy your ticket earlier in the day, tickets are only valid for two hours and you'll get stung for a second fare

    If you don't speak Spanish/Catalan, plan to arrive an hour before your scheduled departure; lines at the information desks are VERY long, and the different arrival/departure boards can be confusing.

    Barcelona's most important train station that provides transport links to local and national destinations. Can easily be reached by taxi, bus and Metro lines 3 & 5. Read more

    Luggage storage is called 'Left Luggage' here. The mid size storage can host '3' boarding-size luggage a and costs you only €5,20. Really nice.

    In the Summer, a cool place to wait before you catch your train is the McDonald's which has good airconditioning. Especially around the McCafé stand.

    The station doesn't look trendy, not a lot of food choices. Don't plan to spend time before boarding. But Renfe rail can use iPhone Passport to check in, which is great.

    The right station if you want to go westward. However it's not easy to find the right counter and order the right ticket unless you speak Spanish.

    From here you go anywhere in Spain. If your train is in the underground, just go 10 min before or you will boil.

    Be sure to pay attention which exit you take. Saves you a long walk around or through (if you are lucky) the station.

    I strongly recommend you to buy your train tickets at another station or before going to Sants. This starion is always overcrowded and the queues to buy a ticjet are large and slow.

    You can check in using iPhone Passport. Really nice. Oh. Make sure you use their iPhone app to generate Passport cards for your trips.

    If you take metro green line, be ready to walk almost 1km with your luggage through stairs and corridors

    Waiting in line for information can take up to 3hrs, then you take a number & wait more hours in line for a ticket. Save time, use the automatic ticket machines!!

    If you are dropping off a rental car here, be aware that the return area is behind the hotel on level 2. go around & head to the rear. Ramp on RHS

    The way this place is described you'd think you're going to get a net thrown over you when you walk outside. I'm sure there's pickpockets and shady people around but arriving midday we had no issues.

    Close to almost everywhere in Barcelona, well located. Not good food and not many stores but easy to move and get to the train. Very, very hot during summer and few seats available. Paid WC, no wifi

    When your train arrives at the platform, it will blink on the electronic department board at the main hall. Very handy if you don't want wait in the heatness downstrairs.

    If you arrive here with heavy luggage and need to take the metro avoid using the metro access INSIDE the station. Go outside and use the metro elevators in the corner of Numancia street.

    Just like an airport but for train booking you need to have 3 days at least to book a trip between Spain cities

    This dirty little trick I'm sharing with you right now... Your TMB card also opens the ports to the train platforms. You can travel for hours for just one euro. Don't get caught.

    If you're looking for a free WiFi check out the McCafe. But if you're reading this, perhaps you've already found a connection =)

    Be prepared to walk...a lot. There's a lot of up-across-and-down when changing lines.

    Subway service ends at 0:00 so be sure to get to the platform before if you don't want to queue for a taxi.

    R2 at gate 9 or 10 brings you to the airport. But watch out to take the one. One that says Aeroport. The other ones don't pass by the airport!

    You can use T-10 metro ticket for a train ride to the airport. It's cheaper.

    Book your train tickets for long trips before you go and print at home. The auto ticket computers only change some bits to English

    If you need any assistance with Eurail passes, go to the customer service desk behind the other counters. No one really seems to know whats going on in this place.
