Location was great and the staff was amazing!!! The staff was extremely helpful and kind. Sadly, the beds were very uncomfortable. I wouldn't stay there again.

The hostel has a perfect location and is really good with its price. The only bad thing is the bed is a little too old and dirty
There was no sign in front of the hostel so it was a little bit difficult to find the place. Our room was at the highest floor and since there is no elevator we had to do so many stairs every day. The sheets of the bed were really worn out. The guy working there didn't know anything about the area we were at so couldn't recommend us anything at all his excuse was that he didn't live there. The positive thing was that the hostel wasn't far from Sagrada Familia and the trams.
Pros: clean room for cheap, staff is nice, fast wifi in rooms. Cons: weird sewery smell in stairwells (didn't reach my room); only one toilet bathroom per floor (it was in use literally every time i wanted it); you can hear conversations from rooms down the hall; the power randomly went off for a bit; someone decided to do laundry at 1 am, which caused loud screeching noises throughout the floor; and the communal areas aren't very comfortable. But its cheap so if you can deal, its worth it.
Wifi didn't work with neither my Android phone nor tablet on the top floor room despite there being a wifi-router outside. A guy next to me with an iPhone had connectivity but he said the connection was a bit slow.
