  8. Olivier From Belgium On November 30, -0001

    The Alternative Creative Youth Home is the best youth home I have been at and I recommend it to everyone. People might say that it is more expensive than other youth homes but for the services you get it is really worth it. The people there are very nice and do everything to please you. They even gave me all the best things to do and the places to go in Barcelona which helped me a lot ;) Thanks for everything

  10. Joao Pedro From Portugal On November 30, -0001

    Is quit expensive hostel. They charge for everything. We got charget for sheets 2.5 EUR and for leaving the bags 3 EUR (and just till 22). The rooms have no privacy because the doors have no lockers. The rest was ok. Excelent location.

  11. Anna From Poland On November 30, -0001

    The place was really cosy and friendly- the staff was perfect! thanks for cookies and yougurt :P water sometimes was not hot but anyway I would really reccomand this place :) nice :)

  12. Suzzanne From Canada On November 30, -0001

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Perfect location right across the plaza from where the aerobus drops you off. But, a few hidden costs...holding fee, blanket fee, towel..etc

  13. Ufuk From Germany On November 30, -0001

    This Hostel is in a perfect location. Middle in Catalunya where the trouble is :-) The staff ist very friendly. Cost & performance ratio ist good. Close-by a superstore with cheap prices. Only the washbasin is to small :-) All in all a great Hostel! U&D

  14. Fatma Dewi Vidiasih From Indonesia On November 30, -0001

    Location's superb, 3 mins walk from Catalunya metro at La Ramblas, 24-hr staff's very helpful with itinerary suggestions and maps. Rooms & shared toilets are clean, kitchen's very small but adequate, they sell 1.5l water just for 1 euro. Only downsides are that we have to pay for bedsheets (2.5euro), leaving luggage til 10pm (3euro), and no breakfast, while we had all three for free in other hostels we stayed in Vienna & Bergamo.

  15. Ingrid From Sweden On November 30, -0001

    Good value. Great location. Kind and helpful staff. I definately recommend it.

  16. Ivano From Italy On November 30, -0001

    I was very happy to spend my vacation in this hostel, people was very friendly and hostel is very clean and in a wonderfull position. Only one think is not so good, the washbowl in the bathroom is a little bit small but not so important.

  17. Lena From Sweden On November 30, -0001

    Very clean and nice hostel where I felt really welcome! The owner really wants you to have a good time in Barcelona and gives lots of advise on what to do. Bad things were that it was quite cold, the showers weren't always warm and that smoking was allowed in the lounge. But don't let that put you off, it's a really good hostel!

  18. Morgan From USA On November 30, -0001

    I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. It was quiet and great to come home to after being out all day. It is in a good location and the people are friendly.

  19. Alessia From Italy On November 30, -0001

    I found the hostel very clean, near the center of Barcellona, and full of nice people..but it's near a big street so I found it a bit noisy too!

  20. Benjamin From Sweden On November 30, -0001
