This was my first time staying in a hostel and my first time in Europe and I absolutely fell in LOVE with this place! The staff is remarkably friendly and can answer all of your questions about Barcelona. The nightly group dinners are so much fun and a great way to get to know people. I would highly recommend attending... More

This hostel is a little out of the way and very small (38 person capacity). Has lots of restaurants and corner stores around. The rooms are quaint. The bathrooms are small, beds are rackety, equipped with AC, and each patron is entitled to one locker. it is right on the green subway line which will take you anywhere in Barcelona.... More

First off, there's this weird Argentinian guy who doesn't even work at the hostel he just kind of hangs around and drinks and acts like he works there. Showed us various pictures that he took of random women who stayed at the hostel on his digital camera. Real creepy bahd. Get a job. 

There was also that 30+ looking dude... More

Stayed in a double room which adjoined a 6 bed dorm. The room itself was spacious, had it's own mirror and lockers, aircon and was clean. The only difficulty was waiting for the shower/toilet which was in the same room and shared between 6-10 people. Great common areas inside and out downstairs, very sociable little hostel. Relatively easy walk to... More

The atmosphere of this hostel is great! They really encourage people to have a good time, so drinking does become a big focus in the evening. Everyone night a bunch of people go out to a bar or a club, so it does mean people will be coming back to the rooms at all hours of the morning. The real... More

One of the nicest hostels I ever stayed at: clean, bright room, fully equipped kitchen, great outdoor terrace with a Jacuzzi and plenty of sofas, good location, yummy tapas places around the corner...But the best part is the staff: they make you feel at home within a second! There's dinner being cooked everyday for anyone who wants to join, so... More

First off, awesome environment in the hostel. Angel is a great guide to the city, as he can give you directions and prices for almost any attraction in Barcelona, then at night took us to the best nightlife the city offers. The hostel dinners are great for meeting new people and just add to the overall vibe. The rooms are... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The relatively new Hostel One Paralelo opened in 2011 and has received very high ratings from our reviewers ever since. Our guests say the 'cool, friendly and family', with attentive, friendly staff and clean, new and comfortable beds. It's located near Paral·lel metro station, 'super close and convenient to the centre of Barcelona', within walking distance of Placa d'Espanya, La Rambla, Placa Reial and more. We like their free nightly dinners, made by the staff and designed to create a communal family atmosphere. Close Our custom-designed hostel features thick, comfy mattresses, instant and long-lasting 24hr hot water, bright rooms with windows, free Wi-Fi and computers where you can upload your memory cards. We have a fully-equipped kitchen at your disposal. Even better than that is our sunny patio with Jacuzzi and BBQ to rest and chill out from this crazy city. Our TV gets most sports events, from English premier league to NFL, plus a load of new movies. But what will make the difference is our staff - a mixture of residents and travellers with different backgrounds that are happy to help you sort out whatever you need. Between us we've got a maniacal attention to music, improvised Spanish- and Italian-style dinners, BBQs and crazy and innovative outdoor activities so you can discover our city from a new point of view. Feel at home far from home!! ... more   less
