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 party hostel, but staff has always some kind of a suggestion for a night out… which is nice, even though I never used it.
I’ll freely recommend it to anyone and even more, will definitely go back next time I’m in Barca.

The rooms are good, i really love the concept of the hostel, because you can put your important stuff in a locker, the place is near to very good places to eat and to take the subway or walk around, but the internet isn’t working well when i was there but i went in christmas so the internet guy can’t fix it, i recomended that place!!

We were’nt a lot in the hostel except for during the night but everything was great!Very clean place and nice rooms!They let us put our baggage in their luggage room before we had to check in and after it too!
The best place to stay in Barcelona, great location, great staff and very friendly guests. The only thing this place lacks is a good internet connection. The place has decent amount of restaurants in the vicinity, a metro station about 3-4 mins walk away and 15 mins walk to Plaza Catalunya
This hostel is great, the supper is a great deal, and breakfast is nicer than the usual hostel breakfast.
The terrace is nice, and if you’re in room 210, its even nicer! The workers are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, the bathrooms are clean.
I left Barcelona for two weeks during my travels and when I returned I went right back to the Hipstel.

Cheap, clean and sociable.
As soon as I arrived in Hipstel, I was warmly welcomed. Feels like a familiar place where you’re comfortable to be yourself right away. The place is flowing with young and friendly staff who are ready to help in any way possible-to make you comfortable and also provide information about things to do in the city. The most favourite thing about this hostel’s that it’s situated in the heart of the city-just a walking distance away from the famous Casa de Battlo by Antoni Gauidi, The Sagrada Família, Gaudí’s unfinished masterpiece, Rambla catalunha among many other attractions. All in all, the breakfast, for just 3 Euros, was nutritious and filling, dinner was cheap and the rooms and bathrooms were clean. Hot water is available 24/7. There is a common/breakfast chill out zone close to the reception. The only downside is that wifi is not strong in the rooms, as you can only get full connectivity in the reception area and the breakfast/lounge room.
Worth staying in.

Everyone (staff and guests) was super friendly and helpful. They offer cheap breakfast in the morning (not spectacular, but better than nothing!). I was also pleasantly surprised by how clean and spacious everything was, considering the relatively cheap price! Thanks!
