    Review score4.8
    Loud and messed upStaff was nice and friendly, the location was ideal for me, away from the city center, quiet and around locals. At the moment the hostel is hosting a bunch of young teenagers from another country. They were friendly, but they were also loud and wild, which is not at all the environment where I wanted to be. So I left after one night. The facility is quite messed up and seems run down. Didn't feel nice to be there.

    AcceptableVery very loud. Whilst I thought the staff were friendly they could have done more to stop the group of drunk teens shouting all day and night and preventing the rest of the hotel from sleeping. Toilets were blocked with sick in the morning too and general cleanliness isn't great. Location is far from everything and for 3 or 4 bucks more I feel you can get far better value elsewhere. The rooms were clean at least and they have a great view. Terrace is a cool space and facilities are a mix of good modern stuff and older decor that needs some work.

    WE BOOKED FOR 10 BUT THEY HAD JUST 3 BEDSOne star for each field is too much for its value! We had to climb the mountains to reach the place, and when reached, they told us the website we used for the reservation made a mistake: they had just 3 beds for 10 people, and they didn’t want to give us the money back. We thought 100€ for 10 beds was almost too much, but it was for 3 beds! It’s TOOOO MUCH because of the position, the cleanliness, the rude staff, the facilities, the heat in the rooms. The 3 of us that stayed in this hostel had to fight all night with the incredible heat, they sweated all night: no air conditioning, nothing. The 7 of us who went to another hostel payed almost a half than what they payed at Mellow and were given a better room, with air conditioning, kind staff, clean rooms, clean toilets, in the centre of the Barceloneta zone. Not recommended at all! If you want to waste money literally, because they book beds at random, go there.Dont,if you don’t want to sweat to reach the place and during the night.

    You could pay a little more for a better accommodation, this one is not worth it.”

    The location is not so good and is not very clean in public area, dining room especially kitchen, it's gross. The staff is okay, helpful but not too polite. Lots of people talk loudly as if only they are staying in the hostel, and so does the staff. Some facilities are not working, like the hairdryer in the bath room. Its clean in the room but very hot, there's just a big fan in room.

    Hostel has two different location, building with private rooms located at Carrer de Santa Otília, 15 near El Carmel metro station and has no any signboard. Location has great panoramic view to the city, but far away from city center (about 15 EUR by taxi). Friendly staff, 24h reception, fast WIFI in the rooms.

    Passable for few days”

    1 Very nice terrace, even if a bit windy. I imagine it would be perfect on summer months. 2. No upper sheet, just blanket. Does not feel comfortable. 3. I don't think the floor in my room was even brushed once during my stay. (Corridors and bathrooms were brushed and washed daily) 4. Though shower stalls are nicely roomy, showers themselves left lot to wish for. Water pressure dropped off when hot was turned to maximum (but if less than maximum, water was too cold). In one of three stalls flow was reduced to mere trickle. I'm in favor of economizing water with timers, but 4 seconds?!! (I counted). Washing one-handed takes lot more time. 5. Kitchen is closed from 14-18 for cleaning. Most of the times I went to kitchen, sink was full of dirty dishes. Maybe if staff could step in every hour or half and wash few pots (or better, ask people to clean after themselves), they would not need 4 hours to clean.(ok, usually kitchen was open long after 2) 6. Some of the staff were quite rude, but others were nice, so I give 2 stars. 7. Room where I was had 8 beds and only 2 power outlets. When I asked for extension cord, I got very gruff 'No'. The adapter kept falling out of the wall and again, the guy in reception couldn't care less. But in the end he found me an extension cord.

    staff is very friendly

    I stayed two night. The first day, there were many bed bags in my friend's bed. So all people in the room moved to other rooms. But there were bed bags in my new room and, other rooms too. Just in one night, I saw bed bags in 5 rooms 6 beds, at least. The staff said this was first time, but I don't think so.

    Muy buena la obra de la Alcaldesa refugiando a 35 menores Marruecos en el hostel. La labor Profesio ”

    El guardia nunca les pegó con el bastón y las peleas entre los menores fueron tratadas por los educadores y el equipo técnico Profesional. Limpiaron Muy Bien mi habitación de pulgas después de haber ido al hospital y hay secador de pelo. Los 15 turistas (aproximadamente) que se hospedaron en el lugar estuvimos cómodos. Tiene muy buena vista panorámica para ver la ciudad desde lo alto de la lomada a teavés de la terraza y la habitación. También es bueno decir que próximo al Hostel Melow existe una escalera mecánica pública para poder subir y que el colectivo 23 pasa por la puerta para llegar al Hoste y para salir de él. Aplaudo a la Alcaldesa por su Gran Obra en Barcelona de albergar y contener menores Marruecos en el Hostel Melow. Eso ayuda a que Marruecos adultos y otros profesionales de Barcelona los ayuden a adaptarse y tener además cama, comida y atención médica de doctora, psicólogo, asistente social y educadorasa en Barcelona para que se incluyan en España o en toda Europa.

    lors de ma réservation, plusieurs choix étaient possible soit en dortoir soit une chambre (prix plus élevé), j ai donc réservé une chambre ...qui s est révélé être une chambre pour 6 personnes, bref très déçu j aurai aimé le savoir à la réservation, l auberge est dans un endroit très calme mais une fois passé la porte d entrée c est très bruyant (surtout le personnel très nombreux qui regarde la tv , chahute ou dévale les escaliers), j avais réservé pour 3 nuits j ai du écourter mon séjour et ne suis restée que 2 nuits ou même avec des somnifères j ai du dormir pas plus de 5h en tout). La 2 eme journée odeur très forte et toxique dans la chambre, ils avaient peint la porte et pas aéré, avec les autres on était dégouté de devoir dormir dans cet endroit. Sur la fiche est proposé le transfert de l aéroport quand j ai demandé on m a juste répondu que je pouvais prendre le taxi pour 45€ , bref à fuir
