This was our first experience of staying in a hostel and we were very impressed with the facilities, location and especially how helpful the front desk staff were. The bedroom was small but perfectly adequate and the kitchen and laundry were a bonus.

We were here for 3 days and it was really great. The hotel's location is very convenient, you can easily get to the metro or to the bus. It takes you for about 15-20 to reach the sea. It is located on the big street, so you don't have to make your way through dark lanes. At the same time... More

We stayed in that hotel for eight nights and it was pretty nice and beautiful! It's in a nice location near to the metro station and we can reach wherever you want by foot (it's not faraway from la Rambla or placa Espanya). Really friendly staff! We stayed in a double room, it was small but we were going only... More

We visited Barcelona from 19th - 24th Sept and stayed at Melon District. Being in my mid 40's it's fair to say I was a little apprehensive of staying at a 'hostel'. I need not have worried! This is a great little 'hotel'! As far from a hostel as you could imagine. Yes it's basic, but it's very modern, I'd... More

We stayed 4 nights on Melon District Poble Sec. I made the reservations in a hurry so it's my fault that I didn't quite see this was a "residence for students" as it is stated in the hotel leaflets. If I had seen it, I wouldn't have booked it. I do not require a luxury hotel or cleaning service every... More

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights, it's very basic - but I couldn't fault the cleanliness or the location. The rooms and bathrooms are little, but they were functional. We were traveling with a car, so having a lock up, underground car park was a bonus and worth paying a little extra for.

Centrally located, easy access to all, used to foreign travelers and friendly and efficient staff. This is an economy hotel with a modern and minimalist feel that has good internet and a reasonable offering for its costs.
