The Hipstel is one of the good hostels I have been in Europe. The crew is friendly. The location is great. Enjoy the Barcelona while staying at The Hipstel! Definitely it will be a next time in The Hipstel.

Personally I had no expectations for Hipstel, frankly I only booked the place of a great price offer for New Years holidays, and found it SO pleasant in every way. Cleanest bathrooms I've ever seen in a hostel so far. Nice spacious dorms with high sealing. Quite inviting common area and helpful (at times adorable!) staff. It's far from a... More

The hostel was a bit disappointing to be honest - the wifi wasn't working for the couple of nights of my stay which meant that I had to use data on my phone which cost me ££. As a guy in my dorm mentioned, you can't market yourself as this totally 'hip' hostel and not have wifi. The other issue... More

I stayed at the Hipstel from the 27th Decemeber to 6th of January 2015 in a private room - I loved it. The staff were awesome to deal with and very helpful and are there 24/7 - a real bonus! If I can make some recommendations, it would be that the bathrooms are maintained a bit more. The shower-head was... More

I've been to some hostels and cleanliness wise this place was great! The people working at reception (whether I got a bad 2 days) were rude and unwelcoming. If you want stable good wifi this is not the place for you!

I think it is nice and comfortable but the base price should include one locker for each bed and the beds should have a little lamp for each, so if you need light for yourself you don't need to turn on all the lights of the bedroom bothering people around.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
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.
