Liked: Melon District is a very nice and clean hostel and it is absolutely worth the money.

Disliked: The only thing I have to critizise is that the " bathroom" is very very very small. It is like a cupboard in the room. But if you dont want to stay for many weeks it is still sufficient.

Liked: It was clean and the room had good air conditioning. There were self-catering facilities and there was also a supermarket nearby to shop for food. The area was lively and interesting.

Disliked: There were often unwashed dishes in the shared kitchen. There was some noise in the room because of the big street next to the window. The swimming pool (which was otherwise nice) was a little bit smelly (smell could have come from other buildings nearby).

Liked: It's a nice place to stay. Small basic rooms with lovely beds, walking distance form the city center and a bunch of nice restaurants in the area. What do you need more?

Disliked: Nothing. Just don't go there if you're looking for a party place. And don't complain about the size of the room. You get what you pay for and you won't get a penthouse in Barcelona for €50 a night...
