Decided to stay here after reading all the stellar reviews. It lived up to the hype and more. This is the best hostel I've stayed at in my life. Clean and great facilities but the best part are the people. The staff was amazing. The free dinners brought everyone in the hostel together and everyone went out together afterward. Do not stay anywhere else in Barcelona, Hostel One Paralelo all the way.

Awesome time at Hostel one. One of the best hostels I have stayed in ( and that is a lot) Staff make you feel like part of the family , cooked dinner every night ,then there is the option of a bar crawl after for everyone at the hostel. I will defiantly be staying at this Hostel again the next time I am in Barcelona .Thank you guys for making me have the best time :)

I stayed in this hostel for 6 days and it was super fun and great trip to Barcelona! Especially the atmosphere was great so i could meet so many awesome people there and became good friends!! I want to say special thanks to Merilin who made my trip more wonderful there. She always cared for all people, made great dinner for all of us, and was so helpful to let me know what i can do in Barcelona. You made my journey sweetie!! If i go to Barcelona again, i'm definitely going to stay here again!!

One of the best hostels I haven stayed in with an amazing vibes. The rooms are what you would expect, clean with lockers etc... But what makes this hostel special is the communal feel with group dinners, well utilized communal space, and superb location in a neighborhood that is fun, yet just far enough from the heavy touristy districts. The staff go out of the way to be friendly and helpful. What is not to love.

Great place to stay. Great location: access to metro, near La Rambla, plenty of tapas bars down the block. Excellent and affordable laundry service. Staff is superb at encouraging family atmosphere.

Been to Barcelona a fair few times and this is the best hostel I've stayed in there. Really nice atmosphere, small enough for people to get to know each other - helped by the meal everyone sits down to each night, cooked by the hostel staff! One thing I would say however is that One should teach all their staff how to take payment. I was leaving early in the morning and the guy on the desk wasn't sure how to process it, meaning I had to leave without paying! (My friend covered for me later).

What an awesome hostel. The staff really go the extra mile to make it a great experience which included putting on an evening meal and taking you out to a bar/club every night of the week. Felt right at home and have already recommended to friends. The hostel is located in walking distance to the old town, La rambla and is on the direct line to Sagrada Familia.

I had a great couple of days at Hostel One Paralelo. The staff were all excellent and the hostel itself is in a great location. The highlight for me was the evening meal which brings many of the guests together. If you are a solo traveller wanting to meet other travellers an evening meal at Hostel One Paralelo will enable you to do just that.

Not sure I'll ever find a hostel as good as this anywhere...I can't complain about a single thing but the staff are especially brilliant, creating a fantastic atmosphere and being incredibly helpful. I would recommend Hostel One Paralelo to anyone without any hesitation at all!

Awesome hostel. The staff is crazy helpful and friendly. They really focus on making your stay personal.. Free dinner every night (actually good stuff) is above and beyond what is expected from them. They have outings you can go to every night, usually with VIP status. I also thought it was incredibly thoughtful of them to offer a cheap breakfast until like 2 pm in case you choose to sleep in after a big night. Good location as well.

This hostel is absolutely my favorite! I have been there four times now and it continues to feel more and more like a family. The people who work there are some of the most incredible people! Angel, of course, is always welcoming and works his hardest to makes sure that everyone has the most amazing experience! Merilin cooks delicious dinners and has the most selfless heart. Charlie, Mauro, Rebeca, Ruben and PJ are super friendly and always there if you need someone to talk to. I love them all!

This is an amazing hostel. The common room is huge. The free dinner is better than most restaurants. All of the staff were really helpful, especially Angel and Ruben. There was always the option of a fun night out, but if you just wanted to stay in and play chess you could. It has a great atmosphere so you're sure to meet people if you try. A faultless hostel!

Though the rooms were small and the toilets more occupied than not. the meals, staff, and atmosphere were awesome. The best and most memorable hostel we stayed in 13 cities. Recommended, especially for the price.

Hostel One Paralelo is a fantastic place to stay! After traveling for over a month across Europe, I can say without a doubt that it has been the most pleasant hostel experience! The primary reason is the awesome staff- Angel (My friend!), Merilin, Mauro, and PJ are extremely friendly and helpful. They do their very best to take care of their guests. Breakfast is only 2,5 euro and the excellent dinner is free! Rooms are spacious and clean, location is perfect, and a great price. Stay there!
