Gothic hostel
Overall it was a good experience, I went to use the shower downstairs on my last day before checking out and the showers were not working or the water had been shut off, I didn't like that at all. I got fed up and just wanted to get out of there.

As good a place to lay your head as any I've seen
I spent 3 nights here! The 16 bed dorm where I stayed wasn't the most luxurious place in the world to sleep (obviously), but the location is very good, and the price is right. There were bathrooms in the dorm, but the showers were down the hall. Metal lockers in the hall made for better security than the wooden cabinets inside the dorm, but I wasn't particularly worried. The staff were friendly, and their English was good. The neighborhood was fine, but I did wake to hear people in the street making noise [or giggling/smoking weed (legal in Barcelona)] in the night, but I think that's the worst of it.. All in all, I was happy with my stay and I would absolutely stay here again.

A good hostel for the location
The location is good for walking to Catalunya Square and to Las Ramblas and Boqueria Market. The reception is really big and well lit. Wifi works just fine. The staff is extremely friendly! They messed up my reservation and I did not get my room in the 6-bed female dorm, but they gave me a free towel instead and placed me in a 8-bed female room. The shower stream is really good, so you get a good shower, but the shower shelves are pretty dirty, and full of garbage. Also the floor is really squeaky, to the point where you feel like you will sink through the floor, and wake up everyone on the way.
