Reviewed 25 April 2013

Stayed at Alternative Creative Youth Home Hostel and had a great time, staff were very friendly and helpful, all the facilities you could ask for (fast wifi etc), very clean, fun but still quiet for sleeping. Great central location, can't rate this place too highly!
A special mention for Al and Michele! Just great. Love Barcelona!

After six nights staying in this lovely place and finding many friends( travelers and hostels staffs) there, I can definitely say this is the must see place in Barcelona just like Church of the Sacred Family, because of its great guys like Al, Michele, Ali, Eryca. in first moment when we arrived there Michele talked briefly about the city attractions, events and gave us two maps of Barcelona:-), I just had the same feeling with other travelers that Alternative Creative Hostel is just like Home. Thanks guys you made our trip too good to be true. I can't believe how many nice friends I found in six days.

Room Tip: we stayed in room number one with six other travelers which was great, have no idea about the sleep...

Great location, good management, clean, comfortable and an awesome place to meet fun likeminded backpackers. Stayed here for 4 nights and met some really cool friends that I'm yet in touch with. ACYH gave me a decent sized locker to keep my valuables safe. The friendly staff helped me with my laundry too. They helped me figure out getting around the town as well as out to girona where I sky dived. I didn't have trouble returning at odd hours or drinking past a certain time.
