    This is the best hostel I've ever stayed at - I stayed an entire week because it was so fun! The only regret I have is not staying at the other Hostel One locations while backpacking Europe. The staff really puts in a lot of effort in to making the hostel feel like a family, and the free activities/dinners (which the staff cook) really bonds the people staying here. And the garlic bread is fire. Ryan has a weird dumping fetish but that's only a minor dilemma ;) I'll miss this place!

    Awesome hostel, would recommend to anyone looking to meet new people while exploring Barcelona. Staff is very friendly and understanding. The free dinners also makes for a more friendly atmosphere, and the garlic bread is really good. Great vibes

    Probably the best hostel I’ve stayed at - although you definitely need to be in the mood to socialise if you stay here. Ryan and the other staff / volunteers were great value and really maintain the fun sense of community. Loved the family meals, great activities (+ free entry to a lot of cool places) and general vibe of the place - would recommend for sure.

    If you are up for meeting new people and having a great time, this is the place to stay! The staff are so friendly and they organise nights out where all other associated hostels meet up and it's one huge party!

    Very Good

    10 Jul 2019
    It was fine. If you’re not into party hostels, don’t go, as I really wasn’t aware it was one until I showed up. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Just a bit loud and the lockers are very strange, you need a very small lock.
