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.
