I have stayed in this hostal on several occasions. The term hostal can be misleading to English speakers. It is not a hostal, but just a simple hotel.
It is clean, safe, quiet, very centrally located and handy for the Metro (Liceu station on Linea 3, the green line)
The hostal is just off the Ramblas, adjacent to the Opera House.
If arriving at the airport, take the bus to Placa Espanya where you take the metro to Licieu station. The hostal is a 1 to 2 minute walk away.
