    I really liked this hostel. The bathroom was clean and the fans and air conditioning helped with the heat. Plus the people are very friendly and knowledgeable about what sights to see and how to book things. It was worth the extra spending money.

    ACYH is located right in the center of the city. It's about a ten minute walk from La Ramblas, and a five minute walk from Placa Catalunya. This makes most of the important museums and monuments in Barcelona super accessible. The place is quiet, clean,...More

    Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
    international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
    glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
