best place/area to stay in barcelona for 5 days

Hi! I'll be in barcelona for almost a week in september. I was wodering what areas are the safest to stay in. I want to be able to go out in the evening around my hotel and get dinner or a drink without having to worry about my safety. Im getting mixed review about las ramblas, plaza riel, and barri gotic. I was originally thinking of of these places but now im not sure. If you have any suggestions id really appreciate. and if anyone can recommend and nice hostels or hotels. My price range is under $130.

Plaza de Catalunya is ground zero, meaning the center of town. If you get a hotel in the area you will be able to walk to many sights.

A more quiet barrio is the Eixample.
