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

I had a really fantastic time at the Hipstel. They have a great staff who are really friendly and always available to help. The hostel can be really social if thats what you want (I was travelling alone so it was perfect for me to meet people) but if its what you need, you can do your own thing as... 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.

It's a fun place and has a pretty young crowd with decent pub crawl fun. The pub crawl organisers were totally cool and wacky and organised some real fun drinking games(though they got smashed as hell as well)

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The Hipstel. The staff were very helpful and the atmosphere around the hostel was generally welcoming. The room smelt odd, but as it was only a place to crash each night I wasn't overly concerned. The location was great with access to the Metro and with Las Ramblas in walking distance. If you are a...
