Stayed at the ACYH Hostel two nights during Easter 2014. Located in a grand residential building, it's less than 3 minutes from Plaça de Catalunya (central shopping plaza and focal point for all modes of transport). The staff is extremely helpful, they're always ready to assist you. Lots and lots of information brochures & discount vouchers available (make use of... More

Will return for sure! The owners also run Sleep Green on the same street. Got the chance to have a look at it...it is very bright and welcoming... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with 7 friends in November 2013. From pre-arrival to departure from this hostel, everything went smoothly. The staffs are great, friendly and very helpful on giving good recommendations for dinner and visits around BCN. The hostel is clean, quiet (not a party hostel) and about 2-3 minutes walking to Plaza Catalunya and major department... More

This hostel is the kind I like... pretty small and appears to just be a converted apartment unit. The location was great, right near Placa de Catalunya. The girl who checked me in was so awesome! She asked me what I wanted to do during my stay in Barcelona, and based on that, she showed me an itinerary that I... More

We were there at the end of july and we just had an awesome time. The 24/7 reception was always nice and helpful. Especially the young lovely dutch girl was a delight for our visit! The beds and rooms were clean and comfortable just as the shower. There was a fridge that everyone could use which was also very practical!... More

The common room is a great place to meet fellow travelers and the staff is realllllly helpful about anything you ask :) The location... More

This was easily the nicest staff we came across in all the hostels we stayed in during our time in Europe. They were extremely helpful and knowledgable and had great suggestions. They also went out of their way to ship me my iPod I left. The bathrooms, bedrooms, and common room were also very clean and accessible. Great price too!... More
