I loved the decor of this place, it was comfortable and travellers needs were well considered. A few cons - The place is not exactly sound proof - take ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. In addition the login to Facebook free wifi service was frustrating and could be really slow / not function at peak times. The... More

The hipster is really a good place to enjoy your time with your friend. Everything's cosy and clean, but there is one thing I really didn't like: you can't cook in the kitchen and the dinner you can buy is not really tasty. I think it's one important thing to be able to cook in a hostel, that's part of... More

I had never stayed in a hostel and was fairly nervous about staying at the Hipstel, however it was awesome. I can't really speak to how it compares to other hostels, but I was very impressed with the staff and facilities. It was very clean and always smelled like fresh flowers. The staff was always helpful and suggested things for... More

I really enjoyed my time in The Hipstel! The staff is very friendly and the location is great… The hostel offer many options to know Barcelona. The internet has a good quality, but It could be better. I recommend it.

Young super helpful staff and great interior design with cheap good breakfast... It's all I need for 3 days trip. Some guests were quite noisy but after complaining staff moved as to the other room without any problems. There is posibility to leave your luggage is special room, so it's safe.

Arrived here last summer as a first stop on a three week travel across Europe. When I arrived they had the wrong dates down for my stay and as a result, no room! Not ideal at 11pm. Not sure if this was the hostels fault or the website I had used to book through. After some complaining on my part... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
