I've just returned from a trip to barcelona, and i stayed at edelweiss youth hostel. i appreciated that there was always someone at the front desk, the "reception", they had video surveillance over the lockers, hallways, kitchen and all facilities, except bedrooms and bathrooms. everyting was very safe, and although i was sat in a 8 bed room full of people, there was never a problem with my luggage. i was away the whole day, left in the morning, came back in the evening, but everything was intact. all very clean, showers, toilets. i liked very much the wi-fi area, it was great. people very frienldy, although i had to check out at 11 in the morning, they understood that i had a later flight and let me stay until 6 pm.
the only inconvenient was that the hostel is very far from everything, and on the top of a hill. it does have a magnificent view, but you have to walk about 15-20 minutes until you reach te metro station that takes you to city centre. but barcelona is a big city and it is understandable that not every hostel or hotel is in its centre. the hill that you must "climb" to get to the hostel is actually kind of hard, especially if you went partying all night long and you come back tired. also, the streets around it are very confusing at times, they all look the same and all go up the hill and you can easily mistake them, so be sure to have a map, or else you could easily get lost. i did XD
in conclusion, it is a clean place, nice people, safe for luggage although you have to share rooms, great view, food facilities, wi-fi etc, and low room costs.
