Hostelworld says:

If you're interested in seeing Gaudi's famous architecture, Soul Backpackers 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 large outdoor terrace, perfect for keeping cool on summer days.

Property Information:

Soul Backpackers Barcelona, The central Hostel.
It's a laid back hostel in the center of Barcelona. A place where you can feel like home and meet new people easily!

Our friendly staff are also great travellers from all over the world who know the city well. We can offer great recomendations and help you organize sightseeing activities and of course make you feeling like home.

The Hostel it's located in Principal floor of a beautiful historic building of l’Eixample in the heart of Barcelona’s modern city. It is only a 10 minute walk to the city centre (Plaça Catalunya and Las Rambles), a 5 minute walk to the Old City, and only one block to the closest metro station (Girona Metro). So, main attractions like Sagrada Família, Casa Batlló, Citadel Park and the districts of Gràcia, Sant Antoni and the Barceloneta are all readily accessible.

We are laid back hostel, not a big party hostel. We want a hostel for those who want to visit all the nice sights of Barcelona but who also need a clean and quiet place with a nice atmosphere to sleep at night and get to know other travellers.
We encourage a social environment and interaction between guests and there is no curfew, feel free to party all night and come home and have a nice rest!!

    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.

    Really great location just a few minutes walk from the city centre and with a metro station nearby. The staff were really welcoming and friendly and the hostel had a very relaxed vibe throughout our stay.
