The staff was very helpful and friendly. The hostel was in a beautiful historical building. Could not have asked for a better location being right next to Catalonya and only a short walk to the gothic quarter. Everywhere else is easy to get to by bus or metro. Overall a great experience!

Nice Hostel, good location and very cosy inside. We enjoyed the common area a lot, there were enough bathrooms and places to sit and linger. It's all been very clean and well thought- out.

Hipstel is a great place with wonderfull atmosphere. People care about you. The Location near to Passeig de Gracia ist very noisy - if you want more silence choose something else. But I can recognize it - OF COURSE!

Rooms are small, no space to put the luggage. Clean bathrooms and good breakfast (2€)

This was the first lodge of our Spain trip, and did not disappoint us. When you check-in the frontdesk staff gives great recommendations and tips about nearby attractions and eateries. The property is located so perfectly, and it only takes 5-6 minutes to Casa Batllo.

We spent 4 nights at hipstel and it was a very comfortable and pleasant stay! The room was large and extremely clean, the bed comfortable and all necessities were provided. The hostel is also very well located in 10minutes walk to La Rambla and close to Passeig De Gracia metro station. From this point you can navigate easily every where! Overall a very pleasant stay in the marvelous city of Barcelona!

Really enjoyed my time here! Stayed for about a week. Facilities aren't anything fancy but they are clean and I felt it was good value for the money. I felt very welcomed by the staff...they were so helpful!! Fun, social atmosphere. Lots of tips on what to see and do! Only complaints - Annoying that they charge you for breakfast and that they lock up the common room so early at night...

The whole atmosphere of the hostel was very good with a nice and clean lobby with helpful and kindful staff...The best thing was the breakfast in a perfect price! The only problem was with the facilities of the male bathroom...it was cold and the water was overflowing during the bath! But in general the hostel is in a perfect location and it was a very nice experience!

There are three or more receptionist. One guy is super good and the other are just OK. They don't have coin laundry machines. Also, power outlets are not enough in the room.
