I've been returning to this place for 10 years now, and I would definitely recommend it.
It is cheap, and it is in a great position: it's clean and has wifi and a nice breakfast included. At least for me these are the most important things.
I started to use this hotel when El Raval was a quite more dodgy area and still considered the place a great solution: now the surrounding area has greatly improved with nice bars and places to have a drink.
Consider that sometimes, if you have rooms facing the outside of the block, they might be noisy because of the people in the city centre at night.
