Property Description

Situated in a beautiful heritage building, right in the heart of Barcelona, the Alternative Creative Youth Hostel is the perfect base from which to enjoy the city and make the most of its incredible opportunities.

The hostel was created to offer safe accommodation especially to open-minded, adventurous travellers who come to Barcelona to experience the cities historic and artistic attractions. The Alternative Creative Youth Hostel is a friendly and cozy place where you can easily make friends with people from all over the world.

Our helpful and knowledgeable staff have lots of recommendations for you. We will tell you great places for live music and for real Spanish food. Some nights we will even take you out to the hidden spots of Barcelona ;-)

Please note that we are a FUN but not a PARTY hostel. We love to provide accommodation to people who come to Barcelona for a culture and leisure visit but not to those who plan to get wasted every night. We respect you and in exchange expect respect from you - towards your roommates, the staff and yourself! We do not want drunkards to spoil the atmosphere.

This is what we have for you:

* Best location: within 100m from Plaza Catalunya and walking distance to main attractions
* Friendly staff who have information for you on tours, restaurants, and city attractions
* FREE wifi and internet in our comfortable lounge
* FREE security lockers
* Sheets included
* NO lockout or curfew
* 24 hours reception
* Clean 8-bed dormitories
* Well equipped cosy kitchen available for cooking
* Mac friendly hostel with Mac support for guests
* PLUS: laundry service, air conditioning, restaurant discounts, 11am check out time ...

... and most importantly a great relaxed atmosphere with other young travellers from around the world.

Please provide us with your phone number and estimate time of arrival.

Great location, great staff very friendly. The thing that lets it down slightly compared to other places I have stayed on my 3 month trip is the dorm I was in… no charging point for phone or camera etc… could be noisy also a lack of privacy as beds have no privacy curtains. Also only 2 showers for the whole place but that a side is a nice chilled environment in a great location with nice staff. Would stay again if in BCN
