Personal comments
Depending on where you buy, products are more or less affordable. The best option to buy is Mercadona or, if you require more variety, Carrefour o Alcampo, but they are a bit more expensive. If you live in a shared appartment, watch out that all pay the same, to prevent that they make you pay more. To open a bank account you have to possess a N˙mero de identificaciˇn del extranjero (NIE), to be gotten in the police office (Ronda Magdalena). In certain banks (e.g. Bancaja), the card they give you incorporates the Carnet Jove (paying a bit extra). Having it, you pay less for the cinema and the train, e.g. The train is cheaper (- 20%) if you acquire ida y vuelta.

At some points I spent more, but that was because at home I lived with my parents, so I didn't had the costs for housing and food. Telephone costs were higher because of international calls. The overall living costs in Castellˇn were lower than in the Netherlands.
