There are currently more than 75,000 hotel and hostel beds in Barcelona, with just under 150 hostels appearing in a Hostelworld search for the city. That’s a lot to choose from, and deciding where to stay can be an understandably overwhelming task that can seriously affect your time in one of Spain’s biggest tourist hotspots. Enter Yeah Hostel.
Hostels as a whole have upped their game in recent years, and Yeah Hostel has followed suit. Describing itself as a luxury hostel, Yeah offers more than just a comfortable place to crash after a day and night on the town.
Let’s start with the basics. The dorm rooms have custom-made (read: comfortable) bunk beds. This means no shaking when your bunkmate gets in and out of bed at night. You’ll also get your own locker under your bed (you’ll need to bring your own padlock or rent one) and your own bedside reading light. The dorms are either 4 or 6 bedded rooms and are either all female or mixed gender. All dorm rooms have en-suite toilets and showers. And to top it all off, there is plenty of space to move around, no cramped bunks, the rooms are pretty soundproof and always very clean.
When you’re ready to tear yourself out of your super comfy bed – after all, half the point of staying at a hostel is meeting other travellers – take a look at the communal areas. There’s a restaurant and bar on the premises, which is the perfect place to meet people before heading out on the hostel’s organised bar crawl. But before you do, join us for our nightly communal dinner, which is a steal at just €10 and includes a starter, main, dessert and drink.
If you’re up in the morning, grab a breakfast at Yeah for €3 before heading out to see all there is to see right on your doorstep. The world-famous Sagrada Familia is just a 15-minute walk away, the beach is a 10-minute metro ride away and the popular La Rambla is just a 5-minute train ride away. There are two metro stops within easy reach of Yeah Hostel – Diagonal and Verdaguer. But if you don’t feel like exploring on your own, or just want to get your bearings before you go off on your own, join the hostel for a free walking tour of some of Barcelona’s top attractions.
Back at the hostel, you can hang out in or by the pool. The pool is only about knee-deep, but it’s a super refreshing way to cool off from the heat of the city, and not a common amenity in hostels in the area. There are also plenty of beanbags for a post-sangria siesta.
A few more details: Yes Hostel is thankfully run by a 24-hour reception, so there are no lock-outs or curfews. Towels are available for hire, as are hairdryers and padlocks. There’s a lift for easy access, so you don’t have to lug your monstrous suitcase up any stairs! And if you have any problems, questions or just want to chat, the staff at Yeah are very friendly and helpful and will be happy to point you in the right direction.
All in all, you won’t find many better value options among the thousands of beds available in Barcelona. So why not make your life easy and book your stay at Yeah Hostel now!
