Hostelworld says:

If you're interested in seeing Gaudi's famous architecture, Backpackers BCN Diputació is an ideal place to stay. It's near Casa Batlló, La Pedrera and La Sagrada Familia. Girona metro station is also nearby. The staff speak English and are knowledgeable about Barcelona. Hostelworld reviewers have recommended this hostel for lone travellers 'because it is easy to meet other interesting people but you can also have your peace if you feel more like that'. We like their air conditioning and large outdoor terrace, perfect for keeping cool on summer days.

    Our guests always tell us that they love how clean the hostel is and that the terrace is perfect in the summer (and not only then), and that the beds are really comfortable. I think our hostel is perfect for people who like to get a good night's sleep in order to have energy to go sightseeing every day.
    We have a perfect price-quality balance; we don't charge for anything without the guests' knowledge. We offer a clean environment and friendly atmosphere-it's a perfect place for the guests to feel at home and our staff are highly qualified to answer all questions and help with any problem. Our facilities aren't suited for disabled people but when it comes to special needs our staff will always be happy to help you.
    Also, we're very near to the majority of tourist attractions. The Casa Milà and Casa Batlló are 5-10 minutes' walking from our hostel and we're 15 minutes' walk from the Sagrada Familia. We usually recommend to our guests some good local restaurants (one of them in just in front of the hostel) and the nearest tourist attractions.
