Onix is one of the greatest housing experiences I have ever had. At first I preferred to stay in an apartment, but am happy I ended up in Onix because of the location, the great staff that are always there for you 24/7, and the amenities. The location is prime time, restaurants all around, a nice gym two minutes away, a metro right around the corner. The staff is very friend, if you ever need them to help you with some Spanish, order food, give directions, etc they are there for you.  The amenities in Onix are fun with a movie room, sick pool on 6th floor, ping pong and a cool pregame room in the basement which we call -3

Soy un estudiante extranjero y es mi primera vez viviendo en la Residencia Onix. Aquí encontrarás lo necesario para estudiar o pasear cómodamente en Barcelona. Acá usualmente utilizaba el gimnasio, y algunas veces subía a la terraza para leer tranquilamente – por mientras que la serena brisa acariciaba mi piel – y observar el esplendido panorama de la ciudad. El personal – recepción, administración, equipo de limpieza y mantenimiento – destaca profesionalidad, amabilidad, y se aseguran que tú estancia en la residencia sea la mejor posible.
