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.
