ACYH Hostel was closed so was sent to "Green Sleep" Its near the main road and very noisy


This hostel sent an email hours before I was due to check in asking me to check in at Sleepy Green hostel next door instead. This was a really lovely comfy hostel with great facilities at a great cost in an equally great location. Only issue is it seemed I could only have a cold shower. I'm all for sustainability but appreciate a warm shower on a cold morning! Great hostel all in all. Even better if it included breakfast!


Kinda hard to find but nice cozy environment. The age group when I was there was not really "youth" crowd, it was huge families from old to children. There were a few travellers we did meet and the staff was helpful with getting around and ideas to do in the local area.


Everything was fine. The staffs were very helpful and gave us lots of tips. The location is excellent: We went to several important places by foot. The hostel is very clean and it provide small locker and computers. The only problem is the lack of a common room that helps you to socialize. I recommend this hostel!!

I apreciate the proprety of the hostel and the first host he was so kind and showing me a lot of things but the giirls was so weeeird and i dindt apreciate that :(


Its not expensive and the stuff were helpful, the girl who working in reception provided me a lots of tips. Its not a party hostel yet its good for travelers who wanna have a rest and meet people.

The hostel is in a great position as it's just off Plaça Catalunia, It's also in a beautiful building which makes you feel very safe and it's very clean. I have been there twice and I will defo go back however to be a hostel is relatively expensive ans some extra fees are really not necessary.


Everything was fine. The wifi is free, if you give all your personal and contact data to an unknown company.


Great, helpful staff with a good location!!! I would stay here again!


Really good hostel with a fantastic location. Very private and secure with good facilities and great helpful staff. a great place to stay I really enjoyed it.


Everything was goood.


Stayed there almost a week, and a great time, the location is fantastic, staff is great, will stay there again on my next trip there


Facilities were nice, small locker for all your valuables, fantastic location right on Las Ramblas, very helpful staff (shout out to Mina, who made us feel so welcome!), and was a great place for meeting people. My only negative was that after we checked out, we no longer felt welcome. The manager added a lot of extra fees we weren't aware of and made it seem like a large inconvenience to leave our bags behind (which he charged us for). Very strange after having a great week stay there.


This hostel is dedicated to people who want calm evenings as stated on the website. It has a nice location. One thing to change: If you want to have acess to wifi with your laptop you have to have a facebook account + you have to "like" the hostel. I personnely dont use facebook and having to say that you like the hostel to be able to connect is dishonest.
