    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.

    Beside the fact that the staff is incredibly amazing and helpful, the hostel is overall dirty (bring some slippers) and noisy. If these two things doesn't bother you, then you'll probably have a great time here.

    I reserved 3 nights in this hostel, really the staff is so rude and unhelpful especially the girl there, and when I asked them to get money back of only the last night because I can't stay all the 3 nights, they were always saying different things and they were not clear at all and gave me different emails to send the case to their boss. Sure nobody replies to the emails I sent and nobody give a s**t!! SO pls don't try this hostel and repeat this bad experience:( it is unrecommendable at all

    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.

    Possibly the worst hostel experience I have ever had. It was filthy, but I was kind of okay with that. What was absolutely not okay was they let people into the hostel rooms way into the early hours of the morning. Me and my brother had to leave early because they let in a homeless man at 2 in the morning, who started to use drugs and masturbate loudly in the dorm. I have literally never felt so unsafe in a bed that I paid for- and it isn’t even a cheap hostel.

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

    Horrible. Dirty, unsafe, no security. It would be easy for a non resident to walk in off the street. I was the only woman in a mixed dorm that had a door that did not properly lock and no lockers. I was moved to a woman’s dorm which was nice, but that was dirtier and my bed was right next to a window that didn’t close. Almost missed my flight bc staff lost luggage room key then told me to wave down a taxi instead of calling (it was 3 am). Bathrooms were worse than gas station bathroom. Nightmare

    It is not a hostel but it is a pigsty. The anti-COVID safety rules are not respected. The managers mistreat customers and some are aggressive, it is the dirtiest hostel in Barcelona and it is dangerous. There are no tourists but dirty homeless who run all day in the hostel wandering I strongly advise against. It's a black book hostel
