They moved us from Melon District Pobble Sec to Melon District Marina when we arrived. This was due to maintenance problems. This was quite inconvenient for us since the location for Pobble Sec was nicer and it was such a hassle to move to the Marina. We arrived late at night and were very tired, but then had to go to the other hotel. They did organise a cab for us and the staff at Pobble Sec is very friendly. However the staff at Marina is incompetent and unfriendly. Took 1 hour to check us in!


We didn´t really socialise much here on account of only staying for one night. This location is very much an up and coming area in the city with innovative cafes and bars allowing you to sample a more modern style of Barcelona. The hostel is extremelly comfortable, the staff are super helpful, the WiFi and free computers are lightning fast. Really enjoyed staying here.


stayed there for 3 nights in a double bedroom in Feb 2015. The staff was really nice and very helpful, the room was clean, the shower was hot, the shared kitchen (which we didn't seem to be sharing with anyone) was tidy and clean. The hostel is only a few minutes away from the Poble Sec underground station and not very far from the city centre. Would definitely recommend it!


Windows to be full-open and more space for getting towels dry would make an absolute comfort. Staff at front desk is very nice, however, their English is not always fluent.
