As mentioned, excellent location.

Most of the reviews are pretty spot on. So I'll save everyone the boring review and make this quick.
Location. Perfect. Close to train, metro, convenience stores that are open late.
Rooms. Small but suitable for a base to travel from.
Staff. Very helpful and friendly.
Issues. As mentioned before, we had to move our room the next morning after check in as yellow water came out of the taps and shower. Sadly, it delayed our day massively which caused many timing issues for activities already paid for. No offer to compensate made since this was an ongoing issue that should have been rectified after all the previous yellow water complaints.
As far as the danger to tourists in Barcelona (I was warned by everyone including my British Airways flight attendant), we didn't have a single issue. We also didn't walk around holding maps, camera bags, wallets in pockets, etc. Be aware it is the pick pocket capital of the world however, simple situational awareness and common sense made for a stress free time in Barcelona. I love this city.
