Definitly one of the best hostels that i've been! In a good area of Barcelona, nearby a station of the metro, and the city center; very kind staff, Cynthia one of the girls of the staff are the best one!! She became our friend! Amazing atmosphere to know new people, they offer dinner every night with tipical food like paella! Very tasty! Clean and you can buy beer, water and other things at the place next door. I really recommend it!
Hostel One is incredible- it's really everything you'd want out of a hostel experience. Plus the staff is AMAZING, ESPECIALLY CYNTHIA. Honestly, although the location and facility are very good, Cynthia really made our stay worthwhile. She's not only incredibly personable and knowledgeable about the area, but also really makes you feel at home. I truly could not have asked for more and would highly recommend this hostel to anyone that wants to truly experience Barcelona and meet wonderful people
It's not a hostel, it's a family. Thank you guys!
The best!!! Staff was awesome, guests were awesome! Location was awesome! Cynthia, PJ, Adrian were the best hosts. Probably the best hostel I've ever stayed in
PJ and Cynthia were great fun and very welcoming! Had a great time staying there, can't wait to go back and visit.
Very nice hostel. Definitely a good place to meet other people and party. They put on a big group dinner so really gets everyone to interact. Very much a party hostel. Only downside is it is located in a bit of a sketchy district, still safe just a bit shady. Upside of that is cheap places to eat out. Staff very helpful and friendly, eager to help people plan what to do and see in Barca
We loved to stay at Hostel One Paralelo! There was a familiar athmosphere. It is a very nice anf clean place. It awesome to be in the jacuzzi when it's raining ;) Every Night there is a nice dinner and after that we went together to a pub, a bar and / or a club. We met a lot of nice people and had a lot of fun!
This place must be the reason Why hostels exist in the first place. I have never been taken care of so well. Adrian P.J. Cynthia and Zofia

Great location near downtown area. The rooms are not too big, so sometimes it is a bit difficult with the stuff of all the people. But everything is clean and rooms have got air conditioning, which is great. The free dinner is just great, nearly everbody took part and you got to know all the people. Perfect when you travel alone, because after dinner people go out together. The staff is amazing, they help you with everything, e.g. booked the sagrada familia for me... Had a good time there.
Loved my stay here. I'm traveling for 2 months and this was only my second stop and one of my only hostels planned - after staying here I wish I'd planned more hostels! Such a fun time!! Met so many great people and the social atmosphere is great for people traveling alone or just those who want to be shown the nightlife and taken out by the hostel.
This was my last hostel of my 5 country visit to Europe and it was by far the best. This is a great place to meet people with a warm family hostel feel. They have family dinners every night so you are sure to make some lasting friendships. I could not possibly say enough about how wonderful my stay was!
I had never stayed at a hostel before and was a little scared when I first walked in. Everything changed within the first 5 minutes. It´s like you´re a part of a big family right off the bat. PJ, Juanjo, G, Cynthia are all such awesome people. I planned to stay in Barcelona for 3 days and ended up staying the whole week. Made amazing new friends and had the best time ever. Recommend 101%!

Best hostel we stayed in by far on our 5 week journey! thanks to PJ, John and the team for making us feel at home! Loved it and i certainly hope i will be back again! Much love! Kate and Brenten!
I LOVED our stay at Hostel One! My husband and I helped cook dinners with PJ and Goncalo and had an amazing time with the staff. :) this place definitely feels like home and is the perfect hostel to meet other people and have fun. Group dinners were so fun, and made the hostel a great value. Close to the metro, awesome pinchos place around the corner. We were so sad to leave!! This is the place to stay if you come to Barcelona! Thanks again!!
Second time staying here and I still can't fault the place!
Everything you could want in a hostel. Staff - amazing, Location - amazing. Facilities are great too. Make sure you use the Jacuzzi!
