Smokey stay in standing water
Access to computers was nice. Not much a of a living room/hang out space though. Small but equipped kitchen was perfect. Also there's a grocery store on the same block. The staff was very friendly and spoke English well. Problems: though the showers were hot, there was standing water in all of them. There was also standing water in the sinks. Awoke with one huge bite after my first nights stay. The room smelled like cigarettes from people smoking out the window.

Cool place, cool neighborhood. Would go back
Stayed here for two nights on a solo trip to Barcelona. A bit hard to find (seems to be a consistent theme with this kind of budget place) but located in a pretty cool area that's close to tourist stuff and good restaurants. Bathroom smelled funky at times and was crowded in the mornings, but the rooms were great! Privacy curtain makes all the difference in the world. Bedding is comfortable. Would definitely go back.

Meh.
First of all, I'm not the hostel-type of person - that was my first and most probably last hostel experience per se. Let me start by saying that the staff was very friendly and helpful so that's already a big positive. The rest however.. not so much. The "hostel" is just a flat equipped with bunk-beds distributed across 4-5 rooms. All the rooms are facing the street and consequently there's a lot of street noise coming in from cars and busses. The street on the corner is also at an intersection so it's 2x the noise. The rooms are very spartan - basically only a bunch of bunk beds against the walls. The bunk beds had curtains so that's somewhat positive, however they were fairly uncomfortable to the point that I had back pain in the morning. I didn't really feel like I can relax. If you are a hostel-type of person maybe that's a perfectly acceptable hostel, but I don't think I'd stay there (or in any hostel) again.
