We stayed in the hipstel during our hangover-like trip to Barcelona and really enjoyed it. You are in every cool place you like within a 15 minute footwalk, taxiride or by public transport. I´ve seen a lot of hostels around the world, hipstel is one of my favourites!

Good hostel in general. Good ambiance. Nice staff (even if the Spanish speakers are rare, at least at the reception there should be a Spanish speaker- we are in Spain after all) Only bad point : the kitchen is closed from 7 pm til 9:30 pm and closes again at 10:30. Which let all the hostel cooking in a really...

The Hipstel is located in the center of Barcelona, 10-15 minutes walking to Placa Catalunya from where you can get a bus to the airport, metro, train, or buses to all the other corners of Barcelona.

Address was very easy to find, close to restaurants and shopping. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast was included. The showers were in need of some tlc (shower heads were all broken off), but other that that had an excellent stay!

A lovely clean and friendly hostel in the heart of the city, round the corner from Passeig de Gràcia and only a short, but very interesting walk from Las Ramblas.

Nice bedrooms, fine atmosphere, multicultural environment and the staff give great hugs. What's not to like? There's a consistent buzz around the dorms and people from every edge of the wood attend this place. Music, food and drink. Estoy bueno.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
