Mellow Hostel Barcelona
Ranked #638 of 732 Specialty Lodging in Barcelona
Reviewed May 8, 2011

It was really far from center and don't have night bus that going near that hostel. So if you're planning to turn back to hostel after 22.30, you have to walk through the hills from Maragal and it's not a good thing.
The hostel was clean, but when i've arrived the hostel, my bed wasn't ready at 03.00 at night and i was dying to sleep. Even the recepcionist was slow, but it doesn't much matter, only the beds should've been ready especially if you arrived at night.
Cleaning was too early and when you were sleeping in the morning, women entered the room and said "cleaning..." Then you can't sleep anymore.

The staff is very nice and helpful. The hostel is all good vibes...
Rooms are clean but all the showers are in 1st floor so you have to go downstairs to take a shower.
Location is really bad! It's a long way from metro station and its hard to find the way in your first attempt.

friendly and helpful staff, room and facilities are quite clean, but if you hate hiking up the hill you might wanna consider another hostel.

AMAZING!!!!! Really recommend this hostel. Great atmosphere, very clean!!! Even the stairs that you have to walk up are not that much of a hassle but a good exercise;)and what is more there is a bus that takes you to the metro and the center of Barcelona right outside the hostel.The staff is very kind and helpfull, they provide us a map and let us know about the places that we needed to visit. Very clean and with great colours. The kitchen is open 24hs and they have a beautiful terrace with one of the best views of the city. Defintely coming back!Cheers to everyone!!!!:):):)

When i Arrived at Mellow I was a little bit ansious to see what is a Eco-Hostel. When I saw it, I figured out that the small things changes too much. I asked to the girl at the reception: Why Mellow is an Eco Hostel? she told me (her name was Joanna) that they have solar energy, they recicle almost 99% of the trash, the windows are allways open to enter the light and to refresh people. I said: ok, this is very good! In fact it was (and still is) very good, probably all hostels shoul do it to show the example to the big Hotels at the world that spend to much energy for nothing. For real, Mellow is a Hostle of the future because it was the first hostel that I stayed that is real ecologic. A part of it, the hostel is perfect: clean, fun, with a very good view of Tibidado...Overall....Excelent!!

I've just returned from a trip to barcelona, and i stayed at edelweiss youth hostel. i appreciated that there was always someone at the front desk, the "reception", they had video surveillance over the lockers, hallways, kitchen and all facilities, except bedrooms and bathrooms. everyting was very safe, and although i was sat in a 8 bed room full of people, there was never a problem with my luggage. i was away the whole day, left in the morning, came back in the evening, but everything was intact. all very clean, showers, toilets. i liked very much the wi-fi area, it was great. people very frienldy, although i had to check out at 11 in the morning, they understood that i had a later flight and let me stay until 6 pm.

the only inconvenient was that the hostel is very far from everything, and on the top of a hill. it does have a magnificent view, but you have to walk about 15-20 minutes until you reach te metro station that takes you to city centre. but barcelona is a big city and it is understandable that not every hostel or hotel is in its centre. the hill that you must "climb" to get to the hostel is actually kind of hard, especially if you went partying all night long and you come back tired. also, the streets around it are very confusing at times, they all look the same and all go up the hill and you can easily mistake them, so be sure to have a map, or else you could easily get lost. i did XD

in conclusion, it is a clean place, nice people, safe for luggage although you have to share rooms, great view, food facilities, wi-fi etc, and low room costs.
