We stayed here for three nights and it was excellent. We didn’t plan on staying a third night and needed a two bed private room and they helped accommodate us to make it more affordable, since it was last minute. The facilities and rooms were all excellent. Overall, an excellent stay.
24 hour staff all there to help you enjoy and make the most of what Barcelona has to offer. The facilities were clean and the location right in the mist of the shopping district and a pleasant walk to the gothic quarter. If you don’t feel like walking, the metro station isn’t far!
The hostel also offers meals at a more affordable price for those traveling on a tight budget and I personally thought it was pretty good!
If you’re into discovering the Barcelona nightlife, I highly recommend taking the bar crawl that is offered at the hostel (15 euro). With a wide range of options, the Hipstel always changes is up so each bar tour is different. Also get a chance to see some of the hottest spots at a discounted price!
Overall positive experience at the Hipstel. If I’m back in Barcelona that’s where I’ll be headed!

Very nice hostel, with friendly staff who ready to help 24 h a day, convenient location near the city center and metro station, tasty dinner by funny chef. Relaxed atmosphere, nice interior in old Barcelona building with little terrace. Thanks Hipstel for comfortable rest in Barcelona
