Nice bedrooms, fine atmosphere, multicultural environment and the staff give great hugs. What's not to like? There's a consistent buzz around the dorms and people from every edge of the wood attend this place. Music, food and drink. Estoy bueno.

I stayed at quite a few hostels during my Euro-trip and I think this is an honest review of the Hipstel. cleanliness, 3/5 beds and showers, 3.5/5 staff, 5/5 social, atmosphere, 5/5 The physical experience of the hostel was about average. I stayed in a 12 person mixed room and it was very much what I had expected from that... More

The Hipstel is a budget hostel located very close to Las Ramblas and about 20-30min walk into the harbour. It is close to a Metro and overground train station that is directly linked to the airport, so arriving/leaving is easy. The facilities are above average for a hostel of this price, and the staff are generally friendly and professional, although... More

This is a perfect hostel. Good service, nice people and a lot of information about the city. I traveled with some friends and all of us had a good review of this place. If I travel to Barcelona again I will come back to this place.
