The Hipstel - Barcelona

Best experience I’ve ever had with a hotel/hostel

Four friends and I stumbled made reservations here planning to stay for only one night. Our plans for night 2 fell through, however, and we had no place to go. The hipstel was at full capacity that night and couldn’t take us another night, but the receptionist, Herc, called every place he knew for what I’m convinced was more than an hour until he found a place for us to stay. I could not be more impressed with the service, and although this happened a year ago, I still message Herc regularly as a friend. The hipstel also offers delicious meals and daily activities for all its guests, and everyone staying there was just having a really fun time. This place cares about its patrons.

One of the best hostels I ever stayed at

Fantastic hostel. Filed with young people from all over the world. The atmosphere is nice and cosy. The staff is friendly and polite. And very helpful. The size of the rooms is good spacewize.
The location is very central, close to Passeig de Gràcia, one of the biggest streets in Barcelona.

You can’t fault this hostel. Firstly it’s SO clean! I swear there is always a cleaner cleaning something! The hostel it’s self has a great vibe, really cosy!. Very good to meet people. The staff are supper friendly. Great location, near La Ramblas but far enough away to be a little quite. Only 5 minute walk to La Rambla. Pub crawl every night with other hostels. The pub crawl people cool dinner every night for those that want it, but they don’t push if you don’t. All in all, LOVED IT!

They’re Doing it Right!

I had an amazing experience at the Hipstel! The hostel provided enough room in the common space to mingle and meet friends! I went out on a pub crawl which was super inexpensive and gave me a good opportunity to immerse myself into the Barcelona nightlife! I will definitely stay here again next time I’m in Barcelona!
