The room we had was very basic, two beds, table & chairs, big mirror & a wardrobe. The bathrooms wasn't too bad,... More

The staff cannot speaks influence English, but he was very helpful. The location of this hotel is very strategic (near "Passeig de Gracia" train station).

Lenin hostel is in a great location, a short walk from the Ramblas. Very basic accommodation with no frills but clean beds and free wifi, had a homely feel, was very popular with all age groups

Me and 6 friends spent a week in the Lenin and had a brilliant time. Staff were friendly and willing to help - they gave us free use of a kitchen, hairdryer etc...basics but good for a hostel. The room was very basic, but very clean, and the bathrooms were good (nice and clean and a good shower). The location... More

Well if good location is all you need then awesome. there you go. You can stay here. Otherwise, search for another place. 1st ill mention that the lady in reception does not speak a word of English, Spanish only. Therefore, we were unable to explain, that the room she is giving us, is not the room we booked for. 2nd... More

The stuff was incompetent. The person at the front desk didn't even speak english - only spanish - very helpful as a tourist... And... More

Hostel Lenin is cheap and close to the centre. If this is all you need, then it might work for you. However, if you want to sleep at night, this is not the best choice. Our private bedroom for two was basic but fine. The room was clean enough, has a bed, a fan and pretty much nothing else -... More

I stayed at Lenin hostel with my two friends for 6 nights and I can't really complain. We had a room with 3 beds and there is 3 bathrooms to share with the other hostel guests. The bathrooms were not that great but we were okay with that because we didn't expect that much in the first place. The location... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable 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 recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
