Pros: Great location, inexpensive, friendly staff, computer in lobby.
Cons: No Frills, Uncomfortable beds, poorly lit entrance, noisy, staff not always on hand.
This hostel is right in a great location close to La Rambla, public transport and a variety of restaurants. Neighborhood is quiet, but I found the hostel noisy at night. Entrance to hostel is easy to miss if you're not paying attention and the only way up is either the creaky old elevator (we took it only once) or the dimly lit stairway. The rooms are small, simple and clean. There is a wardrobe for storing your clothes and a small table. Beds are very uncomfortable.
One of my biggest issues with this hostel is the fact that front office is rarely staffed. Someone comes for about two hours in the morning or when it is known that a guest is checking in. Otherwise, you're on your own. I prefer hostels with someone on staff who can provide assitance when I need it.
Rooms are cleaned daily and the cleaning staff seems to do a wonderful job in general; however, there was a bottle cap under my bed when I checked in that was still there when I checked out a few days later.
If you're looking for a no-frills, inexpensive hostel in a good location, then this will probably work for you.
