We enjoyed the stay at Melon, really helpful staff and location was awesome, next to the metro which was just a couple of stops from maim tourist places. There are nice pubs and tapas places just as Street away.. Rooms were a bit small especially the bathrooms that were tiny. All in all enjoyed the stay.


Nice little rooms, perfect for sleeping and showering. A bit noisy during early hours, but the pool on the rooftop makes up for that! Location is OK, metro is nearby and takes you all around town. Bars and grocer's very close.


Great hotel rather than hostel, right between the Ramblas and the Montjuic Fountains. Highly recommendable, with a beautiful roof pool. Inbetween two interesting subway stops, subways straight to Plaza Catalunya and good old Sagrada Famila. Perpect airport bus connection at Plaza Espanya. 24 hour shop next door. If you stay more than 1 day, you MUST buy the T-10 subway ticket!


We were looking for a clean, safe, calm place at a good location, and we found it all in Melon District. The staff were helpful when we needed any information or assistance, and everything went smoothly. We had a great time! Thank you!

This Hostel was perfect! A very clean room, also the pool on the very clean and refreshing! Staff was very nice! Location was good, Metro was directly in front of the house, so it was easy to visit all the attractions of Barcelona

Clean and modern rooms in an excellent location, 10 minutes walking from La Rambla and in an area full of restaurants and bars. Make sure to get a room with a separate bathroom (last year I had a room with a shower and a toilet in a "box" inside the bedroom, which was too narrow and tiny for my taste. Nice terrace with a small swimming pool on the rooftop. Would have been nice with some more sun beds, though. All in all, good value for money. I would come back!


Clean, comfortable beds, slightly small room. Very small bathroom! Nice roof terrace. Decent kitchen space. They charge extra for room cleaning and linen change. Good wifi. Lacking "hostel" feel.


Its better to provide new towels as we stayed for 5 days.


Really nice place, brand new!! Free Wifi, a lot of storage, bed comfortable! Great!!
