Liked: Excellent location, ok prices compared to the rest of Barcelona, helpful staff

Disliked: Cleanliness in the bathrooms was horrible, but it's not altogether the hostel owners' fault, guys don't go to take a shower in the middle of the night in your shoes and step into puddles of water leaving mud everywhere! Everything else was fine

Liked: The location is great - just off the main street Paseo de Gracia and near the underground.

Disliked: Because it is located off the the main busy street traffic noise is quite loud in the mornings. Also, the bathroom was tiny, with slightly broken shower door and it could be cleaner in general. I was dissapointed when water was cut off due to some roadworks and we were not informed about it (I'm not sure if the hostel owners knew about it either).

Liked: The location is the best thing about this hostel, really near a tube stop which is on most metro lines and trains to airport. Near a Gaudi too.

Disliked: the cleanliness of the rooms left a lot to be desired, our towels were dirty and unchanged after 4 days, it would have been nice to have the bath matt changed as it was hard to get dry. The floor had a layer of dust that made me wish I had brought my slippers. all in all I was left feeling like I was in hostel Leningrad as opposed to hostel Lenin.

Liked: Location is excellent. It was the first thing why I choose it. It's 5 minute walk from Placa de Catalunya, Las Ramblas, 15 minute walk from Sagrada familia. Very close to several metro and train stations.Price was also very good.

Disliked: Linen and towels were dirty, but they did change it at our request. Toilets have poor hygiene. Staff barelly speaks any English. Rooms look like they could use some paint job.
