What I loved the most about this place was how central it was to everything I wanted to see in Barcelona. Several of the restaurants and sights were walking distance from the hostel. The only things I needed to take a bus for were Park Guell, Camp Nou, and Sagrada Familia. Even the beach is walking distance. A long walk, but still. The front desk staff was always available and helpful. My only gripe is the housekeeping maid, she had a stank face 24/7 and always responded with an attitude.
