Hostelworld says:

The relatively new Hostel One Paralelo opened in 2011 and has received very high ratings from our reviewers ever since. Our guests say the 'cool, friendly and family-like vibe is set by the owner himself', with attentive, friendly staff and clean, new and comfortable beds. It's located near Paral•lel metro station, 'super close and convenient to the centre of Barcelona', within walking distance of Plaça d'Espanya, La Rambla, Plaça Reial and more. We like their free nightly dinners, made by the staff and designed to create a communal family atmosphere.

Property Information:

Our custom-designed hostel features thick, comfy mattresses, instant and long-lasting 24hr hot water, bright rooms with windows, free Wi-Fi and computers where you can upload your memory cards.

We have a fully-equipped kitchen at your disposal. Even better than that is our sunny patio :)

But what will make the difference is our staff - a mixture of residents and travellers with different backgrounds that are happy to help you sort out whatever you need. Between us we've got a maniacal attention to music, improvised Spanish- and Italian-style dinners and crazy and innovative outdoor activities so you can discover our city from a new point of view.

For us it's not a matter of travel, it's a matter of experience.

-Please notice that our 6mixed dorm is not suitable for light sleepers, other persons need to come through this rooms to have access to their rooms-

    What makes us special is that our place is like a house. We're usually able to remember everybody's name. We help our guests plan their days here in Barcelona from their point of view - for instance, we'd send an architect on a 'modern architectural route' - whatever you need, we try to make it happen...to a certain point, anyway.
    Personally, I like to send people to a very unusual but definitely local place - an anti-bomb hangar very close to our hostel, only visitable on weekends; also San Antonio market, where the locals go shopping. We've got the best horchata place behind us, the oldest 'bodega' in town is around the corner and the oldest bar around, called Mersella, is just 500m from us.
    Our perfect guest is a solo traveller or a couple of friends, but of course everybody has a good time down here. In the morning we have a free walking tour; we offer several different attractions like renting a longboard or rollerblades and in the evening we usually have a PPA - personal party assistant - coming around to show you some local parties.

    Great hostel. The nightly group dinners were a great chance to meet people and the staff were always helpful in suggesting places to go out and sights to see.

    I was recommended this hostel by one of my friends who previously stayed there, and it did not disappoint in the slightest! Led by Angel, the staff were fantastic and the atmosphere really meant that it was easy to socialise and meet new friends. Definitely one of - if not the best - hostel I've stayed in so far!
