Found this little hotel (hostal isn't the same as a youth hostel) to be great value.
It's clean, very affordable (especially for a single room), and has a great location.
Had a very quiet room behind the reception, no noise.
Room size was quite small (to give you an idea, I added a photo of the room layout from the emergency exit slate. Bad quality picture I know, but you might get an idea of bed vs room size. Entrance is of hotel is on the left).
It's easy and quick to reach from the airport: there's a direct train from BCN airport to/from the Passeig de Gracia stop, which is too far from the hotel. The hotel itself it very close (1 or 2 minutes walk) to metro stop Diagonal.
Next to the hotel is a supermarket, which comes in handy.
Hotel has 24 hr reception.
If you're in BCN for a night out (after midnight), a big local bar/clubbing area is a 10 minute walk to the west, and relatively new one (Duvet) is at Diagonal metro stop even closer by.
