Why you should try Valencia Lounge Hostel at least once in a lifetime

Valentina Di Roma

A hostel in Valencia: it is not like Fantozzi’s horror hotel. A beautiful place to feel at home. And what a home!


I don’t know you, but in all the trips I’ve done, I’ve always avoided hostels because they rhymed with dirt to me. I already saw myself: dormitories where to sleep with all sorts of human beings, shared bathrooms and no cleaning.

But these deviant ideas are due to the misguided idea we have in Italy; because until a few years ago, those who chose a hostel in our beautiful country had to trust in their lucky star.

You know how you get in, but you don’t know how you get out … But when I saw the hostels around Europe …. Wonder!! At ridiculous cost, there are design pearls in Germany and Spain ….

The project I’ll talk about today is an example. Wanna go to Valencia?

Valencia Lounge Hostel

The name itself, “lounge”, remembers those bars at the rooftop of skyscrapers, where you can sip a cocktail and feel so VIP.

Then, if I told you the name Masquespacio studio (if you have never heard of it, here is another awesome project) you already know that the result is guaranteed.

Masquespacio is a creative consultancy firm founded in 2010 that mixes marketing and interior design. The distinctive sign? Graphic projects, with a thousand historical references, for environments absolutely out of ordinary.

The Valencia Lounge Hostel is an example; 11 rooms distributed in the 236 sqm of the hostel.

The renovation started from the study of the building where the hostel would arise. An old 1920s building with cement tiles and moldings on the ceilings. No historical feature has been eliminated or altered: thanks to the wise use of colors and textures, the characteristic features of the beginning of the century have come to life again.

The goal was to convert the hostel into a contemporary space where more types of customers can recognize themselves.

That is why the eleven rooms are different from each other, but they all give that wonderful feeling of home coziness, which makes us immediately want to book a room.

Which one do you prefer? The surf room? Or the music room? Or the ethnic one?

But the feature that really makes this hostel unique are patterns: graphics that you will find just here, because they are specially designed for this space by the studio along with the lamps, tables and all decorative elements.

Who said the hosts were ugly?
