I second everything the previous poster said. It is so easy to explore the city from this hostel with metro and bus stops right at the nearest intersections. The Born neighborhood (boutiques, cafes, amazing alleys) is across the street. Bus will take you from the arc to the beach or up to Montjuic or Tobidablo.
Francesc, the owner, is absolutely lovely and has done a great job decorating the hostel. The beds and pillows are still new--and the most comfortable I have ever slept in a hostel. The couches are so comfy, I always spent some time relaxing in the sitting room. I highly recommend this hostel--it is comfortable, relaxing and friendly.
