Hostelworld says

If you?re looking for a hostel that can promise the best view of Barcelona, look no further. The 7th floor offers a stunning view of the Sagrada Familia and some rooms have their own spacious terraces. The showers here are amazing, and the food is cheap but surprisingly delicious. The famous Barceloneta Beach is a 15 minute metro ride away, and the hostel is perched just a short walk from the city?s most buzzing bars and restaurants. The staff here are also a highlight, most of them speak more than one language and are always willing to go the extra mile if you find yourself in a moment of need.

Cool hostel in a very good location — easy to get to things but less touristy than the very centre. Rooms were pretty small (hotel room size for 6) with no curtains and a small bathroom (smelt v damp), but two sinks in the room. Overall rooms were good though, but be careful because someone in my room stole my wallet overnight — staff were very helpful about it. Bar was quite expensive but had decent events. No kitchen — more of a budget hotel with shared rooms than a hostel overall.

The hostel is huge. As a solo traveler I don't recommend it because it's more difficult to get to know people, due to the size of the hostel. The bathrooms are very dirty and the hairdryer doesn't work on some floors. However, the rooftop terrace is very nice and the hostel itself is nicely decorated.

It was a pleasant stay. The place could be cleaner - the floors in our dorm felt like they weren’t mopped in ages. My bedside light never worked which was quite a bummer. The staff is super responsive and friendly - we had a complaint about the loud people in the neighbouring dorm and they handled it quickly! The atmosphere also felt really social and enjoyable - the rooftop terrace was amazing!
