Super friendly environment / good location

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!
