This hostal was in a prime location in the heart of Barri Gotic (old city). Just across the road is the cathedral and other museums. You can walk to La Boqueria and metro stations. We walked most of the city sites. Don't eat on the main drag of Las Rambas...it is overpriced and they sell you bigger items than you ordered; with of course bigger prices!
The hostal is really clean with big comfy beds and lots of room. We had a private room which was great. The communal kitchen was nice and clean; like your own apartment. Breakfast of ok nothing special. The staff are really helpful.
