This is a small hostel situated right between the Barceloneta beach and city centre, and thus very suitable both for sightseeing and swimming (or surfing). Very clean - our room was always spotless after cleaning, and the shared bathrooms were always ok. Can't say anything about meeting rooms or possibility for socializing - we stayed very little inside. WiFi is free of charge and of good speed. There are also stationary PCs with Internet that can be used. On arrival we were provided with a free map of Barcelona. The owners were also nice before our arrival - they helped us with the confirmation of booking, which had to be presented at the embassy for us to obtain a Spanish tourist visa.
One thing is really annoying - many rules!!! Previous tourists wrote about the "shower only 7 minutes rule" - this was not true, may be it is so only during summer months. However, you have to pay extras for everything - towels (bed linen was provided to us for free), kitchen etc.
To sum up - it is a great place if you are going not during the summer months (no need of aircon), and only use the hostel as a place to sleep (it is really quiet - thanks to the many rules :) ).
