It's a cheap option for people staying in dorms. You are more like a guest in someone's house here than in a hostel. It's a small space so you will interact with other travelers and staff. It was warm in the spring so it probably wouldn't be best to stay in the summer. It's a really fantastic location, walking distance from a lot of sights. There is no sign for the hostel but you can ring bell 2.2 at its address to get into it. You should receive more info in an email after booking. There is also a 20 euro key deposit so make sure you have this on hand. There's also free internet.
CONS: Lack of privacy, no locks on dorms, no lockers, tiny kitchen, only 2 bathrooms (only one decent shower but hot water is constant), really warm, a bit dirty (but not too bad if you're not picky), small dorms
I would not recommend getting a private room here - you don't have privacy. Try Ona Barcelona (very nearby) for a cheap private dorm.
