At first impression The Hipstel is a wonderful hostel in a refurbished old building, but my experience was not so good. My room was very near to the main comum area with just a thin wooden wall dividing. So, the room is very noisily until 1am (cause there was loud music). Also the room ventilation was through a partially closed... More

If you're into meeting new people from all over the world then book at the Hipstel! You can meet people on the fly and just go out for a drink with them. Also the hipstel offers a lot of activities. Rooms and bathrooms are cleaned every day. However, I wouldn't recommend eating in the hostel due to hygienic reasons.

I spent one week in a 6-Bed-Room in The Hipstel. My choice of the room turned out to not be a very poor one. You pay almost double the amount of money, that you would pay in a 8-Bed-Room and if you are unlucky like me, you are going to have a room right next to the living room, which... More

Nice spot and perfectly located. Rooms are mostly clean, a cosy living room and the dinner is very cheap. The bathroom and kitchen are a bit dirty. Have seen worse, but we avoided the kitchen for the few days of our stay.

I didn´t like this hostel. The people was not quite friendly. I had a problem with my bank cards, and they weren´t able to offer me any kind of help. They just told me that there was an international phone like 4 blocks from the hostel. Also, they didn´t know anything about international codes or where else could I find... More

What an amazing stay! Location was pefect, the 24h check in perfect and the staff even better! Everyone is very friendly and helpful. You pay €5 for a home made dinner made by talented Italian hands which you can enjoy with the other travellers that are staying there. This place is great if you're going on your own or with... More

This hostel was really great, I got to meet a lot of people. Barcelona is a beautiful city, it's really big and spread out. There is a lot to see and a lot of places to explore. The hostel had great staff, if you ever needed anything you could just ask and they would do their best to help you... More

Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of August and had an amazing time. The location is perfect, right on la ramblas. The staff are all really friendly and helpful especially Marta at reception. There are so many different languages spoken by the staff which is really helpful if you don't speak great spanish or english. The rooms are... More
