Excellent hostel! Everything about my stay made my trip to Barcelona as enjoyable as it can get. Hostel facilities were excellent but it sure is the staff that made the difference! From Mauro's email with helpful Barcelona tips way before arrival to Marilyn taking the guests out, Elliot cooking amazing dinner and chatty Charlie being there all night to make sure reception runs as smoothly as possible. Everyone had a great attitude that one would expect from friends and not regular staff! A+

Room were very expensive at this time.....It was because of the new year. Hostel is less then 15min to La rambla. But staff and the Atmosphere there are great !!! They making food all night (great food) if you want to eat. Then the money you give is used to make food the day after....When people is playing the game it's awesome ! Then you can meet the people of the hostel. Also they try to organize stuff so very nice ! The hostel is clean and they give you a lock even if you don't need ahah

Hostel One Paralello is a really great place to stay. I enjoyed every single moment. Close to the metro station, so you can reach all important things in Barcelona in a short time. The stuff is great, I never found such a great stuff. You are not just a random traveler for them, they let feel, you that you come to a friend's house. The free dinners every evening are great and the beds are comfortable :) so if you have the change to come to Barcelona stay here!

If God had to create a hostel, he would create Hostel One Paralelo.

This was a fantastic hostel - very friendly staff who would take you out on pub crawls, clean and a good atmosphere where it was easy to meet other travellers over dinner. Having 2 bed dorms also a big plus in my books, and location was pretty central along with being a 5 min walk to the metro. Breakfast (a couple of euros) was also quite good.

This has been by far the best hostel I've stayed in the last two months or so, through several different cities. Mauro, Nikoletta, Merilin, Eliot, Charlie, PJ and the rest of the staff were not only incredibly helpful and welcoming but some of the funnest people I've met, along with the rest of the people there who made Xmas so special. The fantastic layout and communal dinners are also great - if I come back to Barcelona I'll definitely be staying here again.

Hostel 1 Paralelo has an amazing community atmosphere. Every night there are free community dinners and fun plans after dinner, so you get to know both the staff and the people staying there. You are guaranteed to make friends with whom you can sightsee and go out. The staff are really wonderful - shout outs especially to Eliot, Charlie, and Merilin! I was especially impressed by Merilin cooking such delicious dinner every night! Seriously, it's just a great place to stay and make friends.

Wow, what a great hostel; possibly the best I've ever stayed at in 5 years travelling. Big shout out to Mauro and the gang for doing such a fantastic job. The hostel was clean + perfect size for making friends, spent most of my time sightseeing and partying with travellers and staff alike. The location was great, with everything just a short walk away. Will def be coming back sometime in 2015. Come here and you're guarenteed an unforgettable experience, there's really nowhere else like it!

It is really a great Place!! The first thing i thought when i stepped into the hostel was: home! Its super comfy, the people are friendly and you really See the staff is taking care of it! My favouirite was the home cooked dinner that all of us were eating together. I definitly recommend it: clean, well located and just a home far away From home!

What's fantastic about the hostel is the atmosphere. Besides the convenience of the metro being 7 minutes away from the hostel, I really loved the fact that the staff encourages a strong communal hostel lifestyle. The staff are fantastic in particular the workers that showed me Barcelona night life(Merilin, Mauro and Elliot). Extremely friendly, looked after me well and they encourage a fun and safe night. Will not forget the friendships created and definitely not forget the experience.
