Exceeded my expectations
Cheap, clean and sociable.
As soon as I arrived in Hipstel, I was warmly welcomed. Feels like a familiar place where you’re comfortable to be yourself right away. The place is flowing with young and friendly staff who are ready to help in any way possible-to make you comfortable and also provide information about things to do in the city. The most favourite thing about this hostel’s that it’s situated in the heart of the city-just a walking distance away from the famous Casa de Battlo by Antoni Gauidi, The Sagrada Família, Gaudí’s unfinished masterpiece, Rambla catalunha among many other attractions. All in all, the breakfast, for just 3 Euros, was nutritious and filling, dinner was cheap and the rooms and bathrooms were clean. Hot water is available 24/7. There is a common/breakfast chill out zone close to the reception. The only downside is that wifi is not strong in the rooms, as you can only get full connectivity in the reception area and the breakfast/lounge room.
Worth staying in.
