My friend and I stayed at Hostal Campi for four nights in May 2012. For 60euros per night we got a queen sized bed in a private room, with shared toilets and showers. I booked this hostel based on the positive reviews on Tripadvisor and was very pleased with my experience.
Location - The hostel is on a side street off the north end of Las Ramblas. From the Aerobus stop at Plaza Catalunya, the hostel is no more than a 3-5min walk. The closest metro stop is Plaza Catalunya which is great for travelling to landmark sights such as Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell. However, from the hotel the best way to explore neighbourhoods like Barrio Gotic, El Born and Barcelona Port is by foot or bicycle. Big name stores such as Zara, Mango and H&M are located 1min away on Portal de l'Angel (street parallel to Las Ramblas).
Room/Service - Basic and clean amenities (bed, desk, sink in room) with 2 toilets and 2 showers located on each floor. The showers and toilets are cleaned regularly and were always available. The maid who cleaned our room didn't speak English but was still very helpful and friendly whenever I had a question. There is a computer with internet at reception which costs 1 euro per hour (I think) and also free WiFi. When going out, you're asked to leave your room key at reception and then get buzzed up via the intercom when returning. At first I thought this was odd, but I got used to it shortly after. There is no in-room safe so best to take your valuables with you or lock them away in your luggage.
STAIRS - A warning for those with a lot and/or heavy luggage, this hostel does not have an elevator! Instead there are several steep stairs! There are also no staff who offer to help with bags. So it is up to you to carry your bags up to reception (2nd floor) and then up to your room (for us it was another 2 levels up).
All in all, this was a great hostel at a bargain price. Would definitely stay again just for the location!
