Liked: The owner of the place has managed to create a really cool and relaxed atmosphere. Staff was friendly helpful and the place is really clean. The location is an additional plus - it is close to the the old town and also not too far from the nice beaches in Barcelona. I definately recommend this place to friends...

Liked: The Alternative Youth Home is a completely great choice of a hostel. What made my experience most memorable was the very helpful staff. The location is perfect, it's clean and safe. They provide free lockers and wifi which is fantastic. Thanks for giving us advice on where to eat or hang out. We will come again and recommend the place to all our friends! :-)

Liked: Small and close to the centre of Barcelona. The hostel must have only had about 25 beds so it was never crowded or loud.

Disliked: The bathrooms were pretty bad. Tiny showers with little pressure and no curtains to separate your clothes from getting wet. and the sinks were tiny as well. If you like a good healthy clean up after a day this isn't the best hostel for it.

Liked: The name attracted me and I found it was a really nice atmosphere, in a great location and with great staff. There were lots of suggestions on what to do, where to eat etc.

Disliked: It was a little pricey for me for sharing a room with 8 people but that's not a big complaint. I did not find anything bad.
