I paid 30€ for one night in an 8 bed room here. It was clean, quiet with a decent atmosphere. The breakfast was well stocked, but pretty meager in terms of the variety. The bathrooms had no mats on the floor or anything so the floor was always covered in shower water. I almost slipped every time I went in there. The staff were rude. I had to stand outside after ringing the bell to check in for 5 minutes while the man behind the desk talked on the phone. Once he finally let me in, he didn't say anything and I waited for 10 more minutes just to check in while he was messing around with some papers. Same thing happened with the girl when I wanted to check out. She was outside smoking and talking, not paying attention at all to what was going on at the desk. Also, VERY annoying that they only hold your luggage until 8pm. I needed it until about 8:30 and they said no exceptions.
The common rooms are nice though, and its neat that they have a gym. Over all, I only picked this hostel to be close to the FINA World Championships. When I visit Barcelona again I will go back to my regular hostel Casa Gracia. Which for the same price as this one, I HIGHLY recommend.
