The Hipstel - Barcelona

Cheap & convenient for young backpackers

The hipstel was my first time staying at a hostel. I was worried about the cleanliness since I was told it was mostly young people. But the staff & the guests were on top of their own messes. I liked the fact that they offered a decent dinner with a beer for 5€, different every night. Breakfast was exceptional as well. The hostel is very central & friendly staff wiling to help you out with anything possible. Will definitely be going back.

Nice stay

Although the staff mixed up our room numbers and sent us to the wrong rooms twice and the breakfast was a little small it was a lovely stay. The interior is beautiful and the bathrooms are very good. They offered us a safe where we could put our personal belongings while we explored the city. Very nice people!

The coolest hostel I’ve been too in the perfect location!

I was only there for 2 nights and stayed in a private room but found the hostel super trendy, funky and cool. There was always cool music playing in the common areas and the staff were all very friendly and having fun. Our beds were very comfy considering its a hostel – I had worse in some hotels through Europe! They offer awesome advice and tips on the city and sightseeing aswell as a free walking tour. They really are happy to help with anything. They also stored our luggage for free the day we arrived and the day we left. The location is PERFECT. we walked everywhere. The common areas were cool, people would always hang out around there and I met some great people. I had a fabulous experience and cannot wait to go back! Thank you Hipstel!

Lots of space – great location

I had an awesome time at the Hipstel – the staff are friendly and always helpful at the main desk, the dinners were suprisingly good each night, and best of all the rooms were well-maintained with lots of space and regular cleaning. The hostel has a lot of bedrooms as well – it´s a big hostel. It´s location is priceless, right between Passeig de Gracia and Rambla de Catalunya and this proved to be my favourite part about staying at the Hipstel. The staff are always keen to give you tips on eateries and directions as well.

The Hipstel is worth it:)

It exceed my expectations. The rooms were clean as well as the bathrooms. There were plenty of bathrooms so I never had to wait on one. Also they have a female shower only along with the other coeds. The location could not be better!!! Downtown Barcelona a couple minutes walk away from plaza Catalunia. I highly recommend this hostel!!

Exactly what we wanted

Clean, reasonable price for its location which is really central. Staff were really friendly and let us stay a little when we were hung over!! Also let you leave bags there before and after your check in/out. Good lockers- but need your own lock.

Friendly place, feeling at home.

The place is full with positive people with positive energy ;-)
Welcoming, willing to help. The place is clean, with nice balcony …people share dinner and beer together for 5€. But the most valuable thing in this place, is the spirit… Can’t explain it, you must to try the place by yourself !! ;-)

Great & beautiful hostel with lots of fun people

I had a really great stay at the hipstel, i could definitely imagine going back. They organize a dinner and a pub crawl each night, which makes it very easy to meet new people. And, if you just wanna chill and go to bed early, you can’t hear that much noise in the rooms. The building itself was soo beautiful, it was really nice staying there. I would recommend this to my friends.

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.
