“Mellow: View, fun, good people.....best Hostel ever!!”
Reviewed 18 August 2010

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.

  • Liked — wi-fi, low room price, cleanliness, friendly staff, great view
  • Disliked — the hill it was on, far from city center

If you can make the long walk up the hill to the hostel, this is a pretty nice place to stay. Beautiful view too. Too bad it was so far away from everything and I don't think there was any public trasportation nearby. Everything was very new and clean though.
