There are many hostels I have visited and I must say that ACYH is all a traveller ever needs! Lovely and helpful staff, great atmosphere inside and all required facilities. It's not a huge sleeping place like thousands around, I felt like at home there! Also, the place design makes it easy to meet other guests. Apart from that, the... More

I immediately felt at home in this hostel in the middle of the city! It is very easy to get in contact with other fellow travellers (in case you like). I especially appreciated that we received a map from the hostel which highlighted their recommendations for restaurants and bars! Because of that we managed to visit several hidden gems in... More

This place is one of my best choices ever! I really enjoyed my time in Barcelona and that was thanks to their staff and great vibes there. On the other hand, the location was perfect, close to a Metro Station and so many other great places.

It is a great hostel in the city center with friendly and helpful staff. Every room was clean. If you want to use the free wifi, you have to give access to some personal information for an unknown company.

I was incredibly impressed with this hostel, it was clean, homely and a perfect size for people travelling alone. The location couldn't be more ideal (less than 100m from Plaza de Catlaunya). I stayed in a few hostels in the same week in Barcelona central but none compared to this. Staff are friendly and help with anything including their own... More

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

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
