    The location and the staff are great! The shared area is nice too. but.. the lockers are very small - i had to keep my things outside.. it was very smelly in one of the rooms because the windows cannot open and the shower in the mixed bathroom didn’t work well so I barely got a shower with hot water.

    Location was pretty good but I heard about several travellers having things stolen at the hostel. Common areas were filthy. Beds were extremely close together. Virtually no outdoor space and gross fake grass that's never been cleaned. Doors are huge and so loud on some rooms, impossible to be quiet. Lots of toilet options and big shower rooms, however dirty they were, good hot water. The stay was okay. A bed for the night but not sure I'd go back or recommend it to a friend.

    Shower and toilet facilities were not up to standards for the price paid. There is no privacy for showering and seemed to only be one toilet on my level. Also I woke up throughout the night due to the loud buzz sound every time someone placed their key onto the pad to gain access to the rooms, then the closing of the door behind them would slam loudly. Wouldn't stay again as not much more for a hotel and would have better facilities. Only positive was the friendly member of staff at check in.

    Way over price for tiny private room with shared bathroom. Thin walls. Not especially clean. Nice staff and great location.

    Our stay at the hostel was not the best. The room had no window, the bathroom was not dirty but the smell was terrible. the kitchen was disgusting even though the common area was nice. It is not a fault of the hostel, but the people in our room were extremely weird and especially one of the guest was really invasive and made me and my friend feel really unconfortable. I have been in many hostels before, but this was definitely a bad experience for me. I'll never again book a bed in a mixed dorm.

    The good part: The location is great and the staff helpful. The bad part: I've been sleeping in many different hostels around the world and in this hostel it was the first time I felt unsafe and uncomfortable. The lockers didn't work, the people that stayed there were kind of shady and the atmosphere was awful. The kitchen was equally bad equipped and dirty. I loved Barcelona, but would never ever again stay in this hostel.

    The hostel is in a great location but lord it is not worth it. We rented a private room which was located on the entrance floor. The room was right in the middle of the communal area so we got about two hours of sleep each night due to people constantly partying/talking/ arguing outside the door. In addition to this the hostels speaker was directly above our door so we had to listen to music all night. Really uncomfortable beds, and the room STUNK of sewers and so did the toilets. Really bad

    Worst hostel I’ve ever been to. The kitchen is dirty and smells really bad as the (always full) bins are located there. I could feel every single movement of the person sleeping in the bed under mine … I did not sleep.

    we did not have a good stay at the hipstel. The pictures marketing it must be from when they first opened and when the place was last cleaned. The entire hostel - our room, the shared areas, and the bathrooms were disgusting. Looked like nothing had been cleaned in years. Our air conditioning was broken, they were charging 4 euros a day for a TOWEL to shower, and provided us 1 (one) sheet for the bed. The staff also was useless, didn't know how to do their jobs, were not helpful.

    Paid for three nights at the Hipstel, but left after the first night due to an issue that left us feeling unsafe.
