    I stayed at alternative creative hostel for five day in September 2015. I felt quite at home and was able to do some meditation and yoga and some artwork (collage) and cooked dinner several times with some other guests at the hostel.

    I really enjoyed staying in this Alternative youth hostel in Barcelona. The staff was great, the rooms were clean. The hostel is in a very good location, close to everything, and its easy to get there from the air port.
