Hip Karma Hostel was my first time staying in a hostel. I wanted to have my own experience and not what I have read or heard from other travelers. I found it to be very clean and quiet. The room that I shared was spacious and the linens were clean. The bathrooms are shared. Clean but really small. There's a... More

I got my phone, iPod, makeup mirror and a shampoo stolen at the same time. Who is that desperate to steal bottle of shampoo laying on my bed? And paying for bed sheets?? This is ridiculous! They don't ID strangers anybody can get in and the rooms have no locks. The cleaning ladies seem suspicious. They also bring kids with... More

I liked this hostel very much. It is pretty well located and great for low budget travellers. Good attention. Just one thing: too much noise!! The personel doesn't seems to respect that there are people sleeping in the mornings and they enter into the rooms all the time. Very clean.

I booked this last minute as i wanted a cheep break this summer and love Barcelona. The Hostel was clean and tidy with a well equipped kitchen if you wanted to cook. You can rent sheets and a towel so you dont have to pack sleeping bag and towel. House rules were quite strict, but you dont spend much time... More

Great place to stay. Close to everything you need to be and there is a Metro stop a few 100m from them. The bathroom is clean, friendly staff and kitchen area that is clean and for all to use. If you are wanting a hostel where there is a bar and no rules, this isn't the one. But the system... More

Location is very close to the center of the city. Also the staff is kind and understand English well. If privacy is not your only concern than this is place is close to perfect you can get this cheap.

I think this is honestly the most well equipped, cleanest and most modern hostel I have ever stayed in. It has free wifi, with computers if you don't have your own, they allow you to print your boarding passes for a cost of €1. There is a locker under the bed, €5 deposit. The staff are super friendly and helpful.... More

My first impression about the hostel is clean and shiny. Smart choice for budget travelers. Very close to the center and attractions, you can reach almost of the places on foot. Close to North station where you can take bus to go to Valencia or Madrid.The coolest thing about this place was the owner- Rebecca, she was absolutely helpful and... More
