Valencia Lounge Hostel
Masquespacio presents its last interior design project for Valencia Lounge Hostel, a hostel of 11 rooms distributed over 236 m2 situated in the old town of Valencia. All the rooms are illuminated by natural light that comes from the balconies. They are decorated in an elegant, modern and simple style that contrasts with the classic tiling and the 18th century windows.
Valencia Lounge Hostel is located in a historical building, completely renovated, in the Valencian quarter called “El Carmen”. The train station is 15 minutes by foot, and other tourist attractions such as “La Lonja”, “Plaza la Reina” or the cathedral, are just 2 minutes walking distance.
There are 11 neo-classical bedrooms, really nice and luminous, and every room has a private balcony. The hostel also has 4 bathrooms / toilets, a living room and a kitchen where you can prepare your own meals and enjoy the company of our other guests. The bathrooms / toilets are shared, but are constantly maintained. Bed sheets are included in the price, and we also have towels. The hostel has free wifi connection, a laundry service and breakfast (not included).
“We wanted to recreate the feeling for the guests that they were staying in a home, but one that makes them dream, disconnect and live a new experience, while they are enjoying holidays.” – Ana Milena Hernández Palacios, creative director of Masquespacio
“What actually makes us special is that we want you to enjoy your stay with us, as though you were in your own house with really good friends.” – Valencia Lounge Hostel
The intervention realised by Masquespacio in the Valencia Lounge Hostel starts with a study of the previous status of the project’s building, containing typical elements from the Valencian homes of the 20th century with its vintage cement tiles and ceilings decorated with plaster molds that were maintained without modifications.
On the other hand, the aim of the design was to convert the hostel in a more contemporary space with a kind of a ‘home coziness’, adding decorative elements that could draw attention of different customers and their lifestyle. Therefore, each room was designed with a different look, that could adapt to the personality of each personality. Thus we can recognize the room for the fans of surf, music or the actual ethnic trend.
Another aspect to highlight is the use of graphic patterns through the whole project, realised by the Spanish creative consultancy for this project. Above with the purpose of bringing up a major personalised identity for the project all lamps, tables and decorative elements were designed exclusively by Masquespacio, with exception of the chairs and armchairs.
