Using a 6 foot bar for training?

Title pretty much explains it all. I've finished the novice phase of starting strength and am getting right into the intermediate weekly progression part. The gym I'm at however are pretty adverse to actual training. Long story short, they don't like me dropping my dead lifts and power cleans, despite them having rubber plates. Because of this I decided I should rock a home gym, however I have well and truly blown my budget and still have to get a bar and work out the floor. One of my friends has a 6foot bar that they say I can have for free although I'm not sure of the disadvantages of this(aside from it being lighter.) Is it an alright substitute or should I really be hanging out for a 7foot one.
