“Disgusting-noisy-scary”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

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 awake. The room was unfinished with dirty curtains covering the bottom half of a window which left the top half exposed with a another room having an unobscured view into my bed !! Would never ever stay here again or recommend it to anybody. Wasn't even cheap as he conned me into handing over 55 euros for 1 night. Places like this should be taken off websites likes hostelworld IMO.

Room Tip: rooms in a different hostel are better

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 have paid 4 times the price. Would definitely stay here again if I was coming to Barcelona.

Paid for a private room the roof in it not completed so could see day light, also room was half divided from a massive dorm room so was awake from drunken people all night till early hours, staff not friendly and no help, room not cleaned and smelt funny not worth the money, location is good mot far away from main attractions

i thoroughly enjoyed my trip here, it wasn't the cleanest, or greatest service but it i'd still visit again. location wise, it can't be beaten, if you enjoy a city holiday that you can walk to sites its great, as its pretty central, round the corner to a lovely cafe, and major shopping streets including shops like channel you really can't fault the area, as four girls we felt very safe walking around in the evenings.

staff are friendly but unhelpful, language barriers occurred as the main receptionist, though lovely, didn't speak english.

come prepared with cutlery and little kitchen amenities.

my favourite thing about this place is the balcony that over looked the city, which is accessed through rustic french doors.

This hostal is the worst i have ever experienced. No clean rooms at arrival, 2 towels that weren't fresh and not replaced until you ask for it.
Worst part is that there is a restauration taking place and you will be banged out of your bed at 8 AM.
The only good thing about this hostal is the location, don't ever think about booking this!!
