From the moment you are welcomed in it feels like home. Very social and inviting atmosphere, not like any hostel I've stayed at. Charlie greeted me my first night after arriving at 2am and even bought me a beer to welcome me! Marcous cooked us amazing dinners most every night and hung out with us like an old friend during the day. And Natasja who, not only being extremely easy on the eyes, also made a mean Spanish omelet for breakfast; always smiling and helpful. Radical experience all around!

It's a home away from home. A place to recharge the batteries, make some great friends quickly as you share the free home cooked dinners, then go out as a group. You can't ask for A better time. My thanks to Angel, Marcos and Natasha and one other.

This is truly a great hostel and an absolute must stay if you are traveling to Barcelona. The facilities and beds are nice but the thing that really sets this place apart from most hostels is the staff and the amazing atmosphere that they create. Every single staff member is incredibly welcoming, always willing to go out of their way to make everyone feel comfortable and then they take you out for an awesome night drinking, after a delicious dinner and a big bowl of sangria. Amazing hostel!!!

I've been backpacking across Europe for the last two months , I can honesty say hostel one was the best hostel I have ever stayed , the rooms are great . And showers are clean but that's not why I loved it . I loved it because of the people that work there . Every single person is just so amazing. So nice , so caring . I will defiantly be going back to Barcelona and staying there . Thank you Angel , Marcos , Mauro . And everyone else

Simply put, best hostel experience I´ve ever had. Very much of it was due to Marcos. He made sure that everyone was having a great time. He always had something planned, whether it was day or night for the hostel guests. Also what´s great about this hostel is that it can be either a party hostel or a chill hostel, it´s all up to what you´re looking for. Have been to many, many hostels and must say that this quality is quite rare to find.

Truely one of a kind hostel, staff went out of their way to make sure that you feel welcomed and comfortable. The atmosphere is really friendly, a great place to meet people and be shown Barcelona by people who live there. Thanks especially to Charlie!

This is the perfect hostel for touring Barcelona! The staff are simply incredible - by far some the nicest people I've ever encountered. My friend and I were in a jam, desperate to get our car fixed before we left the city when Muhammed and Jesus came to our rescue. While they found a good garage for us, Angel helped us destress and taught us a great recipe from Seville. In addition to AMAZING staff you've got a great location by the heart of the city, and delicious free dinners. Stay here!

I spent 2 nights and three days here. The staff will tell you everything you need to find your way around Barcelona. They make you feel at home; the kitchen is great. There is a nice patio where you can sit outside in the shade and have a drink. It´s really awesome. The location is 3 minutes from the metro and they give you excellent directions and a guide to Barcelona (you download it once you make a reservation). Stay here it will make your visit to this big city easier and a lot more fun.

From the moment I arrived I was greeted with a warm welcome & made feel very much at home (gracias Ángel & all the staff!) - I was even handed a plate of food! There was a lot of activity in the hostel & a great atmosphere - I couldn't go out, but if you wanna party, the party moves on to some local bars at about 23:30 & breakfast is available all day, so no need to get up early! For people who don't wanna/can't party, the hostel is quiet after midnight & pretty chilled in the mornings.

BEST HOSTEL EXPERIENCE I'VE EVER HAD! The staff are absolutely brilliant and a pleasure to meet, they really take care of you during your stay & as an extra bonus they take you out every night - so much ridiculous fun. The atmosphere between everyone staying in the hostel is fantastic, the location is perfect... I honestly cannot say enough good things about Hostel One Paralelo. I'd recommend it to everyone & it's definitely where I'll be staying on my next trip to Barcalona. It was GUUDTT.

Had a great stay. It’s clear to see that it really does matter to all the staff that you have a good time in the city and at the hostel. They help create a great atmosphere – especially with the daily dinners they put on.

Been travelling for just over 2 months and this was my final stop. Without a doubt the best hostel I have been to and I've been to a lot! Has the best atmosphere, the communal home cooked dinner followed by drinking games makes it impossible to not make many friends during your stay. Rooms are great and clean and it's in an excellent location in the city, just a 2 minute walk from the Metro. Angel and Marcos make your stay in Barcelona as good as it can be.

After many travels Hostel One Paralelo is still the most difficult place to leave, so much so ive visited twice in 5 months. From the start you feel welcomed into their family. The staff are a group of awesome people who cook a free dinner and take people out on the town every single night. If you find yourself traveling through Barcelona here. Thanks Mauro, Merilin and Angel - its Goooodddttt ;) HORSIE HORSIIEEE - love tonkinsoonnnn xxx

This hostel was one of the most hospitable hostels I've stayed in! The daily dinners brought all of us together. Angel was amazing in leaving the leftovers for us when wewe returned from a night out. Marcos was fantastic in bringing us out for the night. Overall the staff and hostel are wonderful. I'd definitely return.

I had an absolutely excellent time whilst staying at hostel 1 paralelo. The staff were very friendly and engaging. Upon arrival I was given a brief about where things were in Barcelona and recommendations of where to eat and what to do. The free evening meals were nutritious and provided an excellent time to get to know the other guests in the hostel. the rooms and toilet facilities themselves were of a very high standard, with comfortable beds.

Highly recommend this hostel. It felt like a home away from home. Close enough to the main attractions but far enough to escape the hustle and bustle. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Marcos went out of his way to show us the city. I would stay here again.
