I stayed at Hostal La Isla for two nights in September 2012. The hostal is located very close to Arc De Triomph metro and about 15 mnutes walks from the top of Las Ramblas and Placa Catalunya.
The staff were very friendly, the rooms and bathrooms were very clean. I would say that this is an excellent option for someone who wants their own room for a good price rather than staying in a dormitory. Not really a choice if you are looking for luxury.
The one issue that I did have was that I hit Barcelona in a hot snap and the rooms got very hot (the fan provided was quite weak and the window was to an internal courtyard).
I bought a two day metro pass and I used it alot to get around (Barceloneta / Park Guell / Sagrada Familia etc). Some of the interchanges at stations seemed like a vry long way! I highly recommend the seafood in the main market in Las Ramblas.
