Tutto sommato perfetto per un weekend da passare li a Barcellona.. A due passi dal centro e prezzo ottimo..
Leon is a cool cat. I was on a Music tour and Leon came to my shows and filmed them while I was there. The place is great if you are not trying to spend a lot of money and you are on the go. Small, cheap, and recommended if you are not too picky.
A large group of us stayed at Leon's place and he was extremely friendly and accommodating, despite our boisterousness. We'd definitely go back. Thanks!
Lets just say, you you get what you pay for. And if you're paying less, you're getting even lesser here. I would not return.
The pictures provided by Leon K. are in my opinion deceiving. In the photos it appears that the room is spacious, but what I experienced was quite the contrary. 6 bunk beds were cramped into one small room, 4 more bunk beds in another tiny room and 2 more beds in the main room. And only 1 shower/toilet for 13 people? The situation was so ridiculous and the appartment was so hot and stuffy, that I didn't even want to hang around there. When I was there in the evening I needed to use the toilet but the bathroom was occupied for at least 15 minutes, after which I decided to go to a nearby square where there were fortunately public toilets.
There was no way I could sleep in that place so I looked for another room and found one...since it was so late (9:00 p.m.) I had to pay 55 euros for a room elsewhere. In total I stayed at this dump of a place only three hours, that was enough!
One other thing that disturbed me was the fact that the "Ka Hostel" (which actually is a small, three-bedroom appartment) was NOT marked on the street, and even the entrance to the hostel on the 2nd floor wasn't even marked. I got the impression that the whole operation was back alley-like, shady and probably even illegal. I suspect that Leon doesn't post any signs in order to avoid being noticed by the authorities and to avoid paying taxes on the rental income. At the least having 13 people in a small 4 room appartment is dangerous and most likely in violation of fire code.
Add to that Leon's cold, unwelcoming reception..."25 euros for the key deposit"...
instead of "great to see you! Did find the hostel o.k.? Do you need any information about Barcelona? Can I help you with anything?"
PEOPLE...this place sucks! Don't be seduced by the low price! Better to pay a few euros more and stay at someplace decent, with hosts that are happy to receive you into their home, where you can sleep in a PRIVATE room, with hosts who are eager to assist with your stay and further travels.
Es war toll mit so vielen Nationalitäten zusammen zu treffen. ich Personen aus Grossbritannien, Poem, Hub, Amerika und der Schweiz getroffen und mich nett mit ihnen unterhalten. Insgesamt ein Aufenthalt wie ich ihn mir vorgestellt habe. Ich war sehr zufrieden.
