Learn Spanish with comfort and convenience
Our residential area is on the second floor of the Spark Spanish Academy Complex (a renovated hostel) and this is the recommended accommodation option if you want to further enhance your Spanish skills, feel part of and socialise with the other course members and at the same time have your own independence. You can also see verified reviews about sparkville at tripadvisor.
There are 14 rooms (for 1-2 people), nearly all of them ensuite. Sparkville has a communal kitchen and dining area which acts as a great social gathering point that adds to the unique Sparkville atmosphere. There are also numerous chill out/social areas, such as the Plaza de las Américas (a little ‘outdoor’ space, with a tv and glass roof to protect you from rain or sun) and a big roof terrace which is ideal for barbecues sunbathing and evening drinks, which facilitate interaction with other students and staff.
The residence has minimum 1 social events coordinator who lives in the same facilities and who can help you with any problems you may have.
