The showers and room were very clean and the cleaner did a great job at this. The bed was too soft for me but I'm sure others don't mind. The room had lockers but when you leave the hostel, you have to leave your keys at reception. WiFi was good in the room but was really poor in the common area. Location was alright, 10 mins walk to Ramblas and metro. A corner store is just around the corner and the hostel is situated on a very quiet street so there's no noise at night.
The con which led to a lower rating than i would have given: one of the staff (he's probably new) screwed up my booking. I arrived late in the night and he said that he couldn't find my booking. I gave him my confirmation email and he couldn't find my name on the printout and then said that it must have my name on it for it be valid. I showed him the email on my phone (which had my name on it, the same email that I printed) and he said, he can't accept that and must accept the printout. Then i found my name on the printout and then he made up more excuses, saying that the agent (booking.com) screwed up my booking. I spent ages waiting for him to find me a bed, have no idea what the big fuss was as there were plenty of beds available. Finally, he gave me a bed, still blamed the website for screwing up my booking, and told me that I'll have to check out and check in again in the morning. Morning came and I packed my luggage and stuff, went downstairs to check out and check in, but this time (a different guy, probably the owner) said that all has been taken care off and I can stay in the same room and bed. No need to move.
So, the first night was very negative experience, but then after that everything else was fine.
