They have a fan and electric heater if needed in each room. Towels and linens are provided. If you book through booking.com they would still charge the first nights stay to... More

I did not know what to expect and I honestly did not expect much at that price, but here is what we got: Pros: - Great location, close to great food, shopping and metro. - Clean rooms and bathroom. - Welcomming staff. Cons: Poor sound-insulation. For this price the fact that the rooms are dark tiled and feel cheap doesn't... More

We were for 4 nights in this hostel. The hostel is on great location, in the city center. Our room was dirty, and smelled it in the bathroom. We were all day in the city, so we only slept in the room.

The room was clean and fresh. The shower was in good condition and has strong water pressure. The lift is tiny considering the size of the hostel but perfectly... More

Worst place I have ever stayed in. Man on reception was arrogant and inconsiderate. In the early hours of the morning someone tried to get into my room, twice they barged into it and then twice they were banging on the door. The reception guy was talking loudly on his phone and his voice echoed through the hallway keeping me... More

Very good days ! Perfect, excellent Hostel. Great location, next to "plaza Catalunya", "casa Batllo", Barcelona. Very advisable. Room with new bath, Tv. There should be a category better than Excellent to rate the Staff. All the people I met were extremely nice, kind and helpful.

I had to find a hostel in Barcelona for 34 people at the very last minute. The Lenin hostel came back with availability and a great price. The location was brilliant. Within walking distance of everything you want to see and do in Barcelona. The rooms were clean. Hot showers, complimentary towels. I have stayed in worse hotels where I... More
