I'm usually very critical but this hostel exceeded all expectations. Very friendly staff, perfect location near Las Ramblas and the bus/metro, very clean, extremely safe, and great accommodations. I would recommend it to anyone. We had an unusual request to house 8 students in the same room and they were very helpful in providing what we asked for. Overall a... More

Getting to ACYH Hostel was very easy when coming from the airport, we just hopped on the Aerobus and were dropped off very close by. The location feels very safe, no matter what time of day or night. Staff waited up late to check us in after our late flight, but we were placed in an odd room. Doors did... More

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

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
