This hostal had everything I needed, clean, safe, comfortable and in a great location. It's only 10 minutes walk to La Rambla and 30 metres from the underground.
The breakfast is quite good, cereals, fruit, cakes (packaged) and toast, with juice, tea and coffee, from 7am-9:30am.
I slept in one of the upper 'bunks' which was suprisingly comfortable considering it was a matteress on the elevated floor. I liked the private cubicle idea with your own curtain so you could have privacy if you wanted. Found it stops you meeting people as easily though, but there is a large common room downstairs.
There was plenty of hot water in the showers whenever I used them, free internet and organised events like Tapas tours, bar crawls, a dj , then a band one night in the hostal.
The only downfall of the hostal is that it does get quite noisy at night. There were a couple of nights when some kids (around 10-12yrs old) were staying there. They ran up and down the corridors slamming doors (which made the bed vibrate), making it quite hard to sleep. Also as there's no curfew people are constantly coming back to the hostal at different times in the morning, so you get woken up quite often. I'm quite a deep sleeper and can sleep through most noise, but the doors slam a lot which makes the room/bed vibrate. The last couple of nights though were mostly quiet, so maybe it was just bad luck with inconsiderate guests the first couple of nights.
Overall if your planning on going out late most nights or aren't bothered about getting much sleep, this hostal is perfect. Everything is nearby, friendly staff, clean and comfortable and very cheap.
