    This is the best hostel I have stayed at! All of the staff are so friendly and welcoming! Came to Barca on my own and met so many amazing people and it was all because of the set up at the hostel! It runs awesome days activities as well wicked night outs! If I come back to Barca I would 100% stay here again! Also, if you get the honour of joining Ryan on a Dumps adventure, don’t hesitate. He knows a couple things about some stuffs! All love!

    By far the smoothest introduction to a hostel I've ever had. Everything is set up for you to integrate seamlessly with other guests (accelerating friendship): FREE family dinners, activities everyday, seasoned pros leading drinking games, a wealth of travelling advice from every staff member. Can be as chill or as party as you like. Could easily have stayed longer. 5-7 days is ideal to see everything but you'll be screaming you don't want to leave soon enough. Currently home of the Dumpling King

    Had an amazing experience at Hostel One. Great place to meet people as a solo traveller and they coordinate fun group events. During my stay, we went to see the sunset at the bunkers, had a free dinner and sangria at the hostel and then went to a pub crawl. Definitely would recommend and will be back soon! Shout out to Wander for being so accommodating :)

    Lovely hostel with staff that really care! Wander and Marcus are amazing, from organising free dinners in the evening, day tours, bar crawls and nights out this hostel and the staff really do cover it all and it’s all FREE. The rooms are really clean and the beds are comfortable with plenty of storage space. Can honestly say this is my favourite hostel to have stayed in and I will definitely be returning soon. I would also 100% ask Ryan about his Dumpling addiction...

    The staff were incredibly friendly and the hostel had scheduled activities to see Barcelona during the day and some of the nightlife. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone looking to experience Barcelona and make some friends along the way!
