This place is great, stayed for 4 nights with a friend, you will not find nicer people running a hostel anywhere, they gave detailed sightseeing advice, as well as tips for hidden local restaurants and were also knowledgeable on good bars/clubs. Staff always approachable and friendly. The rooms and the bathrooms are comfortable and clean, and the cleaners are always polite when requesting you to vacate your bed so they can make it at 11am. The whole place has a nice interior design too, which gives the hostel a cool look. The other guests were friendly and relaxed, and there is a strong social side to the hostel too, with owners organizing nights out/sangria nights in the communal living room. Everyone usually joins in and it is very easy to meet the other people in the hostel like this. Location is good, 5 minute walk from la rambla and there is an easy bus connection to barceloneta beach.
The only drawback I can think of is that sometimes the air conditioning is on all night and then it can get cold with only a thin sheet. I recommend you ask for a spare blanket if this happens to you.
