We don't usually stay in dorms, however we found Barcelona very expensive so we booked with Hip Karma. The rooms are cleaned everyday along with the bathrooms. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking equip, new but small. The entire hostel is new, clean and very nice. I especially loved the curtains that went around the bed giving privacy whilst sleeping and the lock up draws underneath the bottom bunk, large enough to store two 75lt backpacks per person.
They don’t allow alcohol inside the hostel, which is slightly annoying but at least there wasn't people getting drunk and being loud at night, which is the reason why they banned it.
The main downside is that there isn't a comfortable space to relax in... And they let people who aren't staying at the hostel inside - The person staying in the bed across from me came home at 4am with a late night caller. I told the guy at the desk and he just smiled. Luckily we were leaving that morning at had to get up early otherwise I would have been suitably unimpressed.
