My stay there was very short, but I liked this hostel, everything was really good. The hostel is located in the very central area, it took me around 15 minutes to walk there from Placa de Cataluna. It's really easy to find using the directions provided. The staff was nice and the hostel is clean, with nice interior and good... More

Location was great, and my friend and I were in room 101, so on the main floor. Our AC went out a few times, and so did the power, but it worked well at night which is what really mattered. And when the AC stopped working the staff promptly fixed it. It was an 8 bed dorm, so crowded but... More

I think Hipstel is a very nice hostel located in the heart of the city center which enable you to explore the city center by foot. The staffs are nice and they gladly answered your questions and also giving you some advise about where to go in Barcelona. Unfortunately wifi did not work as well as I expected and there... More

A really nice hip (the name doesn't lie) hostel. Offered some dinner for a very low fee. Rooms were clean, staff - friendly. They organize pub crawls as I remember. Not the cheapest option on the list but is definitely worth it. Location and interieur is also great. Satisfaction 10/10

Miserable staff. Took their sweet time to check you in as they were busy having converstions with their friends (at 2 am). They only accept cash. The bathrooms seem like they are cleaned once a month and there are two ´showers´ for a floor of about 20 or more people. Even one staff complained that he didnt like working there.... More

This hostel was alright as far as they go, but there were a few key things we were disappointed with: first of all, the Wi-Fi is terrible. They use social Wi-Fi which requires you to check in every time you use your phone, and it's also incredibly slow- you can't use it for anything other than basic email checking. Forget... More

FALSE ADVERTISING This hostel listed a kitchen under ammenities and while there is a great kitchen there's also a sign telling you you're not allowed to cook in it. What. Also terrible wifi that makes you sign in with Facebook. Apart from that great showers/washrooms, beautiful common area, power plugs by all beds, friendly reception. Would recommend overall but as...

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.
