Hostelworld says:

The Hipstel is located in central Barcelona, 'really close to the Gaudi sites and only a 15min walk to old town', according to our guests, who also say this is in 'the perfect location for getting around Barcelona'. This hostel features big, bright rooms with comfortable beds. We like how comfortable the common areas are, with a spacious kitchen and dining area. One Hostelworld visitor told us that 'everything was done to make the stay as comfortable as possible and all requests met promptly and professionally'.

    Fantastic location. Literally within walking distance of everything. We purchased transportation cards and only used them twice! The staff was very friendly and helpfully offering advice on what to see and how to get around. Thanks so much guys!

    The bathrooms are disgusting! Nobody cleans this place. The female communal bathroom has hair everywhere! But the receptionists are very nice and very helpful. The free walking tour they offer is really great too.
