I LOVE THIS HOSTEL. This was my second time staying here and I still don't want to leave. Angel, Mauro, and Merline will make you feel right at home. Good location, clean facilities, and a very social environment. I'll be back for a third time before too long!

Excellent stay! It was my first time and my friend's first time staying in a Hostel. I liked that there was a buzzer or security code to get into the hostel. The staff made themselves familiar with their guests. We were delighted with the cleanliness. The best part was the staff. PJ was helpful and kind during our check in. Angel was an excellent host and cook. All the hostel guests got together and enjoyed a night at a bar and club. I made a connection with everyone!

Had a great time in this hostel. The staff is extremely helpful in explaining the city. The manager Angel is great at hospitality and information. Other employees like Merilyn cook and take people out to bars every night and show everyone a great time. There is a group dinner every night at 9pm so its a great way to meet other people before going out or sightseeing. Rooms are clean and beds are comfy. Location is a few blocks from metro station so its easy to get anywhere.

This place is amazing. I originally planned to stay for a couple days, but I had to extend my trip because how great this hostel was! The staff, Angel, Mauro, PJ, Cynthia, are all very passionate and knowledgeable about Barcelona. The minute I walked in, they treated me like family. As a solo traveller, this hostel provides a great atmosphere to meet new people! It is always clean, and is very central! I definitely now have a home when I visit Barcelona again. Thank you Hostel One Paralelo!

By far the best hostel I have stayed in! The hostel itself was very clean, comfortable, and safe. The best part about my stay though was the staff. They were ALL amazing and went out of their way to make sure I had to best Barcelona experience. They cooked amazing dinners, took us all out on awesome adventures, and truly made me feel like apart of the family. One of the managers, Angel even taught me how to dance! Lol I would definitely highly reccomend this hostel!

This is unquestionably one of the best hostels I have stayed in. As A solo traveller the Hostel is set up so you can meet fellow people. A free sit down meal every night (make sure you donate funds....) A different activity every night where its arranged for you and fellow hostel guests to go out. The staff are fantastic and helpful and friendly. If you are in Barcelona you should make this your first choice of a place to stay. I know if I return to Barcelona it will be mine

I cant recommend this place enough. From the location, to the staff, to the guests everything exceeded my expectations. Ideal for solo travellers as the staff encourage a communal vibe. Every evening everyone sits down for dinner together (provided by the hostel) before heading out to party together. You'll probably find you know everyone by the end of the first evening. Always very clean, great showers too. Quiet dorms most of the time (dorms are far from communal areas). Book it!

Best hostel I’ve stayed in. The room was nice and had everything you need, bathroom was very nice and clean. The kitchen and sitting area had a nice family feel to it. Every night they cook a nice dinner and in return you put in a tip into the box for the next night. The best thing about the hostel however, was the staff. All were happy to help and nothing was ever too much trouble, especially Angel who is possibly my best friend ever now. All in all couldn’t ask for anything more. - Lee

The hostel atmosphere is incredible and makes you to want to stay there longer and for more days! The staff is friendly and helpful. They gave me support for everything that I needed. Good location, close to the Paralelo Station and close to the Ramblas. The hostel and the rooms are safe and very clean! I hope to be back to Barcelona soon!

Best hostel I stayed at during my whole time around Europe. The staff is really helpful and make you feel right at home. It is the perfect place to meet plenty of other travellers since we all had supper at the hostel together in the evening. It is in a good location, close to some of the main attractions and good places to go out. You can also get a cheap breakfast in the morning at the hostel and the rooms are cleaned every day.

Hostel One Paralelo is really amazing. I stayed there for 8 nights and it was really enjoyable. The location is good. In 15 minutes, u can reach major sites and the fish market. Staff there are really friendly and make u feel at home. They will cook for u for dinner, so with a little tips, u can have dinner almost for free. and They will take u out to bars and clubs. I miss staff there already. They make my journey really enjoyable. I highly reccomend this place to everybody.

very nice hostel, clean and cosy. the friendly staff makes you feel super welcome. breakfast is till early afternoon, so you actually get to sleep in after you've partied the whole night (which you should, its barcelona! and the hostel takes you out for free). i would definitely reccomend a stay there!

I had an amazing time in Barcelona and the staff at the hostel were a big part of the reason why! Angel, PJ, Charlie made everyone feel so welcome and a part of the family. It was my first hostel experience and I am afraid no other place will be able to compete. I will definitely be back!

While booking, I was shocked by all the reviews and thought that everyone is probably exaggerating.. But all these reviews dont lie. Hostel One Paralelo isn't just a hostel, it is a caring, every-day growing family of likeminded people, who you will never forget and will make your stay in Barcelona once a lifetime experince! :) I met so many great people and many of them even prolonged their stay because it really is hard to leave! Thank you for making me feel at home, hope to come back soon.

I made so many friends during my stay at hostel one!! Including the staff, so many wonderful humans!! The location might not be right in the middle of everything, but after my stay in Barcelona, I know I wouldn't have wanted to be at one in the middle of the city. It was in a quit part of town, with great food near by!! The generous dinner based off tips is must another example of how wonderful these people were!! Great patio, but you gotta take the hottub off the website if its not open;)
