It is a great spot for meeting other fellow travellers, and although i haven't had breakfast or dinner it is only 5 euro each. Best thing about this hostel is the awesome convenient... More

We stayed at The Hipstel for five nights, in a private room - clean, bright, powerful shower, and gorgeous bay window. Fabulous place with on-point decor, and you immediately are made to feel at home; I didn't want to leave! The recommendations from a girl who worked there (Jess) completely made our trip to Barcelona, as we were able to... More

Common areas are well-equipped, with several large tables, couches and even a balcony. Breakfast and dinner are not included and cost 3 and 5 euro respectively. There is free Wi-Fi both in the common... More

The rooms as well as the bathrooms and restrooms were very clean and tidy, the overall atmosphere in the hostel is very good - met lots of amazing people, it is very easy to make friends by eating dinner together. The staff was also very friendly and helpful, I felt as if I was at home.

The rotated around 3/4 members, 3 of which were very helpful but one didn't really seem to know what he was doing but he may have a new starter. Great location to the... 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.
