I am a first-time hostel guest in my fifties. The Hip Karma Hotel is an immaculate accommodation on a street that is not overly busy. The staff speaks perfect English. There are numerous Internet terminals, laundry service provided by the staff for a fee, and locked drawers that will hold carry-on sized luggage and other items. A very clean kitchen...

This is the first time I had stayed in a hostel for years, but had read some good reviews and needed something cheap but in a good location in central Barcelona. This place more than filled the gap. Firstly, the hostel is just 5-10 mins walk from Las Ramblas and very near 2 metro stations, the nearest is Urquinaona which...

Great location, fantastic staff & really clean room/bathroom. I wasn't expecting it to be so modern, was pleasantly surprised.

At first, this hostel was somewhat difficult to find. I was standing on the corner of Girona and Ronda San Perre for about 5 minutes before I realized that there was a glass sign (I will use this as my excuse for not being able to find it immediately) on the corner of the street, closer to the Placa Catalunya...

I stayed at Hip Karma a couple of years ago with a group of friends while we were studying abroad. While it is a little tricky to find, it is a super clean, modern hostel with great staff! The beds are super comfortable and the little curtains on each bed provide privacy. The bathrooms were super clean, the location is...

I've stayed there for 2 nights. It's clean and modern. You can leave food in the fridge. The bed are really comfortable and I also like the curtains around the bed, which gives you a bit of privacy. The down points is the noise, particularly from the street when the windows are open. So get some Ear plugs and you...

We stayed at Hip Karma for 3 nights, and it was perfect. It was a little hard to find when we first got there, but not impossible. Everything was nice, the people, the rooms, everything. My favorite hostel in Europe so far! They also had brochures in the "lobby" area for different attractions in the city, which we ended up...

Walking distance from Plaza Catalunya (and even closer to the metro), location wise it is very good, without being in the seedier part of town which has many hostels. Close to Ramblas, the port area and the Gaudi buildings. The hostel had the typical features of mixed dorms - with row of showers where you shed both clothes and inhibitions...

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
