My friend and I stayed at Apt. Ramcat for 5 nights and thought it was such a good place for the money. We paid €20 per person per night for a clean 2 twin bed room with a balcony, closet and small table (linen and towels included). The bathroom is shared with the other 4 rooms but it's no problem at all, only sometimes in the morning when everyone is trying to use it. There is also a fully eqipped kitchen at your disposal, which is great to make breakfast before you set off to venture Barcelona. There is computer in the "lobby" with free internet.
This is def. not a party hostel though. The walls are super thin and it's really quiet at night. There are also a lot of rules, such as no smoking on the balcony or anywhere near the front door of the hostel (they tell you to go to the park down the laneway but no one paid attention to it and did it close by anyway), no bringing in your own alcohol (but I think it should be fine if you are drinking a bottle of wine or a couple beers before heading out for the ngiht, they just don't want you to party in there)...there's a list in the kitchen for the complete set of rules.
They only provide you one set of keys, which is hard sometimes when you and your friend want to do seperate things but we were able to provide our passport to the girl and she gave us another set. I think if you talk to them nicely, they will be fine with it. Also, there is no reception at the hostel, so when you check-in, you have to call someone from a payphone and they come get you at the Placa Catalunya and walk you to the hostel (very quick walk).
There is an elevator, which is good as there stairs are steep and the hostel is located at the 2nd last top floor.
Location wise: it is absolutely perfect. You are right in the thick of things in La Rambla area. There's restaurants, shops, shopping all within a few minutes walk. As well a the Catalunya metro station.
