Trip Type:
Beach / sunbathing, Sightseeing & culture

Liked: Location, location, location. About 30 meters to metro (if needed), but only 20-30 min walk to beach or Casa Batllo, 10 min to Plaza Catalunya... in short, in middle of everything. Curtains on the bed - was like in my own private room. Showers were separate for M/F, and had room enough to change clothes in, lot of mirrors. Roof terrace to sunbathe on.

Disliked: Minor inconvenience, not enough to go ask for plug divider - could have used one more power outlet by my bed, now had to charge some batteries in bathroom. Locker by the bed was rather small, had to put some things into the one in the corridor - BRING SEVERAL PADLOCKS.

Trip Type:
Beach / sunbathing, City break

Liked: The beds are in their own little cubicles with a curtain across so give some privacy. There is a roof top patio for sunbathing etc.

Disliked: The kitchen is just a cubby hole really with very few facilities and there is a shortage of fridges. A couple more large fans would help as well.

Beach / sunbathing, City break, Events / festivals, Partying / nightlife, Sightseeing & culture

Liked: Great location, free breakfast, good communal area, free wifi - seems pretty much designed with backpackers in mind.

Disliked: It's right in the heart of the Gothic Quarter (ie tourism/bar central), so at least some of your fellow guests are likely to be party-hearty types - bear that in if you're planning on a good night's sleep. Also, the bedroom lights don't switch off, which also hampers sleepiness.
