I stayed in this hostel for a week, i felt like I was at home. The atmosphere was very quiet:after a busy day we just got back home, put some music on and got Chilled in the Living room. We met a lot of nice people and we had so much fun. The location is awesome, very Close to The...

I stayed in the hostel for two nights in July. It was my first hostel. Overall the place was just as hip as it's name suggests. I loved the vintage comic posters! The kitchen was very handy, and the space in the lobby is open and great for socializing. The bathrooms/toilets are quite small, but they fill their purpose. However,...

It was the...

My friend and I found this hostel to have a great atmosphere and the staff were so helpful and really smiley. It was clean, friendly and had all amenities required and i'd definitely recommend it to anyone who is wanting to stay in a more local friendly part of Barcelona. The Gracia area isn't too over-run with tourists so its...

I disagree with the review of 'Zogdawg' about Hip Hostel. Hip Hostel is really a recommandation in many ways. First of all: the location of this hostel is just great. It's in the middle of barreo Gracia, a very cute area with lots of cute bars, little squares to have a drink, very creative stores with hand made materials. It's...

When you think of "hip," you often think about "cool." As it is the 21st century, having air conditioning is pretty standard for being cool (literally and figuratively). Unfortunately, Hip Hostel doesn't think so. After backpacking through Europe for the last 6 weeks (and staying in many hostels without air conditioning), Hip Hostel takes sweating in your room all day...

Staying in Gracia

Neighbourhood Profile
Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
