The Hipstel: The hostel and its surroundings

Want to know what can be done close to the hostel?

Shopping, dining, fashion, design and more are all just steps away from The Hipstel, in the heart of Barcelona

The Hipstel Barcelona

Visitors to Barcelona should know about some of the interesting history of the neighbourhood in which the hostel The Hipstel is housed . The Eixample neighbourhood was created back in the mid-nineteenth century (1860) by architect Ildefonso Cerda, during the massive growth of the city that seemed to have no limit. This geometric design that joins the old city of Barcelona’s Gracia neighborhoods in the east, San Andrés in the north, and Sants in the south was delicately planned for the future, ie the present day.

Barcelona Elektronika Sonar & Piknic Elektronik

Barcelona Sonar - Find a Hostel

June is the month in wich Barcelona becomes Sónar. The city is, suddenly, full of experimental music lovers all around. It’s all fun and entertainment. It is Sónar time.

But besides the festival, there is all around the city, countless of parties with top level artists, who, taking advantage of the fervent and hungry for music audience, are ready to show their material. All these things makes Barcelona a great musical and trends spot over 10 days. The Hipstel gladly invites you to share the best season of the year in town with us.

But also throughout all 2015’s summer, there is an appointment with great electronic music every Sunday afternoon at the Piknic Elektronik.

If you are interested in coming this summer to Barcelona you have to know that The Hipstel is located in a privileged location in town, and has all the information necessary to reach both events without having to stress yourself a moment when organizing movements within the city.

Good for short stay

We only stayed for one night but it was a very nice hostel. The location was great very close to the center and some of the sights. The staff is very nice as well. The bathrooms could be better and a power plug or two per room more would be great.

Thumbs up

I had a really good time in barcelona, one of the good things was the hipstel hostel, it was clean, the staff member were very friendly and helpful, you can ask them everything and they will help you as good as they can. good job! and girls, the bathroom is so cute. XD 
if you want to go on a place where you can meet some nice guy go there and have an excellent time there. Have fun.

Stayed April 2014, travelled solo

As hostels go, one of the better ones!

When you stay in hostels you expect simple budget accommodation at an affordable price. This is the model that has worked for many a traveller over decades. What separates good hostels from bad are hostels like The Hipstel.
I stayed here with a groups of friends in October 2013 whilst on a stag do in Barcelona. The rooms are very simple but clean and secure. The communal areas are also clean and well equipped. We had an excellent stay at this hostel, the staff where always happy to help and we found them very friendly. 
I have stayed in a lot of hostel around the world and this is definitely one of the best.
Good work people!

Ideal Location

The staff member we spoke to at check in was so helpful, we lost my girlfriends phone on the plane and she didn’t hesitate to help us find the number we needed which resulted in us relocating the phone! The hostel is really nicely decorated and furnished with quirky pieces of art and furniture all around! The location was ideal as it is a 15 minute walk to Plaza de Catalunya and 20 minutes to the Ramblas and 20 minutes from the Basilica de la Sagrada Familia.
Overall a really good stay and we wouldn’t hesitate on coming back

Very good

Cool hostel, location and personal. Very friendly and helpful staff who make you feel immediately welcome. The bedrooms on the street are noisy, but is ok.. There should be more plugs…

Convenient, friendly and fantastic value for money

The Hipstel is in a prime location, access to the airport is so simple and is within walking distance of most major tourist attractions.
The staff are super friendly and helpful, everybody is made to feel welcome.
Unlimited free coffee and a good quality breakfast, we would definitely return in the future!
