The ACYH is a cozy youth hostel right in the heart of Barcelona just a few steps from the famous Las Ramblas, main attractions, public transportation, 24 h supermarkets, bars and restaurants. The hostel was not only created to provide budget accommodation but also to be a meeting place for people from all over the world from where they can easily discover Barcelona’s artistic and cultural treasures. We truly care about your experience and are here to show you Barcelona from a different side.
If you are vegetarian or vegan, we can recommend some fantastic, healthy restaurants all in walking distance from the hostel. If you are a musician, bring your instrument, there are some fine jam sessions going on in some hidden away bars in Barcelona! We have guitars at the hostel too, should you miss plucking strings during your journey. And if you are interested in arts, we can tell you where to find excellent exhibitions.
We look forward to welcoming you in Barcelona!
Amazing youth hostel in center of downtown Barcelona. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms and bathrooms were very clean. Nice kitchen. You can walk to main attractions, nice restaurants and shops. It’s walking distance to the Barcelona beach. Highly recommended!
Staying at Alternative was a great experience! The hostel is cozy and not too big. The rooms are nice and tidy and the other guests were really quite. It is definitely worth checking out when planning a trip to Barcelona. I would definitely stay here again!
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 favourite places to go in the city.
