I spent there probably a half of a month. So I can tell that it was like my temporary home and I can tell how to leave there lol. It's a really good hostel. With great location, nice kitchen with fridge and all staff for cooking, nice rooms and beds with curtains. As for me it's so important to have... More

I spent one night here before leaving Barcelona as my previous hostel was full for the night and this was closer to the bus station for my early-morning departure. The hostel was a little difficult to find at first, as it's not actually on the street of its address but instead on an angle facing the adjoining intersection. The hostel... More

Stayed in April, 2010. Had my doubts about hostels, never stayed in one... heard both great and really scary/creepy stories about them. The Hip Karma was a really good experience for me! My main concern was the shared bathroom, and room... sharing with total strangers? How about privacy? How would that work out? Well, everything turned out great! It was... More

This hostel is the second I've been to in Barcelona and I don't recommend it. It is not so clean (the under sheets were disgusting) and the bathroom is cleaned only once a day when a lot of people are using it. We waited for our room for a loooong time because of the cleaning that wasn't done but when... More

Cant say enough good things about this place if you are in Barcelona for a few days. Really good location near the Arc de Triomf and other central sites. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Small hostel with only a few rooms but felt very safe with great storage facilities (with locking ability) and the beds offer curtains for privacy.... More

I stayed at Hip Karma Hostel for four days in June 2015. Although it is definitely not as good as a regular hotel, it's better than the normal hostel experience. There are computers and wifi available. The bathrooms and bedrooms were cleaned every day. The curtains around the beds are great for privacy. It works better if u have a... More

Clean and confortable beds. Staff generally very attentive. The only thing I would suggest is that they should find a way to guarantee the booking other than charging a commission before arrival through the credit card (the reservation clause says the hostel MAY charge it, and it was the first hostel in many I have visited in Europe where they...

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.
