Are you renting an entire apartment, or are you renting a room in someone's house? If you're renting an apartment, then the space is functionally yours and your landlord has no business who comes and goes provided your guests don't disturb the other tenants in the building, and that you're not having extra people living there in violation of your lease. If you're renting a room in someone else's house, where you and your landlord have access to common living space in the same house, then yes, your landlord can make rules and the rules can be pretty arbitrary.

Did you sign something with this on it? If you did, deal with it, if you didn't and this was not discussed before you moved in, surely this would be grounds to break your lease?

I agree with this; also, if the op signed a lease without reading it, this is entirely op's fault. If this wasn't in any signed paperwork, then there's no legal obligation to follow that rule.

If you're renting an apartment and you've read the contract, it would've stated all the demands the landlord requires of you. If this is in the contract, YDI. If it's not in the contract, take legal action.
