Good location, awful and dirty room
For sure the location is good, but the bad side is the room is dirty, gloomy and not well maintained, equipped only by fan, not air conditioner. For the traveler who is going in the summer time, do consider because the room is so humid and hot. we can open the window but not really sure about the safety due to facing directly to the main street

Good location and decent room
The location was pretty good, alot of high end shopping just minutes away. Near tourists attractions and transportation. Rooms were fairly decent and toilets were clean. Wifi was good. We stayed four to a room so we had the room to ourselves with a toilet. We were pretty happy our room!

Pros: Location (can't be more central) Cons:No private bath as promissed I have emailed the hostal to confirm there's private bathroom for the room that I booked, and got the following reply: All our rooms are ensuite, they have a private bathroom. Unfortunately there's no such room available for the date that we arrived. They offered two Options: - 20 Euros refund for no bathroom or - fully refund and to find another place to stay by ourselves It was too late to find another place. We have to take the first option...Not a pleasant staying at all...and the room wasn't very clean and quite smelly...

In the middle
it can't be more central, we got a newly renovated room without traffic noice, the staff is very friendly and helpful
Perfect - we where in Barcelona for just walking around, looking at local attractions, drinking beer and sangria, eating tapas - and this is the perfect spot to have as the base and startingpoint - we will most likely come back

Comfortable & friendly budget hotel within city
Value for Money, Great location, Hospitable staff
As the name suggested, it is a hostel or backpacker type of accommodation. The hostel is located very near to the Metro stations around as well as the shopping district of Eixample. (Passag de Gracia) Just 200 meters away and you will arrive at the famous La Predera by Antonio Gaudi. The staff is friendly, helpful and very accommodating. Do wish the nice, old lady by the elevator. I believe she is the landlord. She is nice and easy going. When we arrived, the staff showed us different rooms and asked us which room we prefer, since we were honeymooning around Europe. There's even a balcony for you to do your own reading. The balcony faces the city. Although the hostel provides Internet, the speed is ok and do not expect too high a speed. It is ok for browsing web pages, getting information and etc. Not for video downloading or gaming etc. Besides, why would you want to download videos and play games while you are there? The coffee and tea facilities are shared and many people just leave their leftover unopened coffee or tea packets behind for others to use. There is a microwave oven at the sharing area. The area is decent but the cleanliness can be better. We left our coffee and tea behind. Haha. Room wise, the room was big but not that clean. The shower facilities were nice. Our bed was creaking and it wasn't that clean. However, for the price that we pay for, we do not expect much. Overall, the hostel is decent, livable and very accessible. It is value for money if you ask us. If you are on a tight budget, we would recommend this hostel to you due to the friendly staff, the balcony, the accessibility it offers (especially if you need to get to the airport early in the morning next day). If you have more spare to spend, then other places might offer you more for your money.

Location, low cost, comfortable
Stayed for 2 nights. the stay was good, acceptable. the room is quite comfortable. the internet speed was good. very good location, near to metro, train station, restaurants etc. one thing can be changed, the staff's friendliness. not that, they werent friendly at all, but, a lil chat with the customers doesnt hurt. thats all.

Super location and friendly staff
The location near La Rambla - Plaza Catalunya
Friendly hostel, it is located in one of the most expensive street of Barcelona surrounded by Palace and luxury shops. The room was big unfortunately the walls are quite slim so it is easy to hear what happens in the room next door but overall opinion is very positive about my stay at the Lenin Hostel.

Excelente ubicación y buen servicio
Buena ubicación, buen trato y servicio, Agua caliente
Lo malo es que no tienen caja de seguridad en las habitaciones, lo que da la sensación de inseguridad en las pertenencias. Además, las sábanas estaban manchadas.
