I had read some about this hostel before my stay, and it was alot of negative things so I was prepared. But when I arrived it was a pleasant surprise, the house was worn but still kind of beautiful and it had a certain charm. Clean beds. But on the second day we discovered a cockroach in our room, so... More

Was pleasantly surprised at what good value this hostel was given its central location ( just around the corner from Las Ramblas and only 10 mins walk to Famila Sagrada). The room was spacious and the beds comfortable (linen supplied). They did say that the hostel had AC but this is in the form of a large floor fan. Staff... More

It is a Hostel, so we didn't expect too much. At the end everything was quite well. Unfortunately we didn't had a fridge in our room. Also the kitchen was not available after 22pm. At the end not very important for us, but still remarkable. The fridge was actually the reason we booked this hostel. The wifi quality was not... More

We knew what we were getting ourselves into, just didn't think it would that run down. Bring your flip flops. We were in the private room. We faced the Main Street .At 6am we woke up to cars and fire trucks noise. My boyfriend got up to close the shutters and window. The fire trucks were downstairs putting out a... More

You can't find fault this hotel as it puts itself in 1-star category. The room was approx 80sq ft, with TV which only has all-Spanish channels. Private shower was surprisingly big. Front desk, Oscar is very helpful. And best thing about the hotel Location, Location, Location... On Passieg de Gracia - it's center of the shopping area, restaurants and next... More

Excellent for Metro, restaurants and cafes, culture. Parking discount. Quiet. Basic. Free WiFi. Lift. No bath/sink plug! Shower was powerful and hot even at an early hour. Staff friendly. Bed a bit hard but for the price room adequate.

In the context of the low price we paid (€100 for 4 nights for 2 in March) I think the Lenin Hostel offers fantastic value for money. We had a double room (209) with an ensuite. The shower worked well and the bathroom was clean with hand wash provided. The room was light and airy, with a second single bed,... More

There's a few things to say, to set context. First, we stayed out of season, for four nights. It cost €100 split between the two of us, for the whole stay. Bearing in mind where the hostel is, I thought that was staggeringly good value. For that, we had a double bed in a spacious room. The shower and toilet... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was basic but a good size with a nice balcony. For the price the location is excellent. I felt the walls were perhaps a little too thin and the service on arrival could have been a little better. However overall I feel this place was great value and excellent base to discover... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
