Hostel One Sants is a little bit outside the centre, which only works in its favour! If you want to have proper tapas instead of falling into the La Rambla's tourist traps, the Sants area is the place to go exploring! I highly recommend Pan & Oli on Carrer Galileo.
The hostel is a 15 minute metro ride from Plaça Catalunya, a 15 minute walk to Plaça Espanya where the -beautiful- Magic Fountain's light show is, aaand also where the aerobus stops.
The hostel itself is on a very quiet street, just off the buzzing Rambla Badal. Felt safe the whole time I was there.
Upon arriving I was greeted by the wonderful Carlos with such niceness it actually blew me away. Oh, and also cake. That was good, too. Thanks Linda!
The whole staff is very attentive, incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the city, the rooms are cozy and they have a super cool terrace area. They make you dinner EVERYDAY which is a nice way of getting to know the other people staying at the hostel and organize nights out almost everyday.
Bottom line is, if you're planning on going to Barcelona this is the place to stay at. Especially if you're travelling alone!

Theres also towels for 2 and our 8 wash-and-dry laundry service. Breakfast is 2.50 and served from 8.30am until 11.30am. We charge for breakfast so we can afford to run all the free activities instead. What makes us so great? Its the parties and barbecues on the terrace, where you can lay down and enjoy the Mediterranean sun while you relax in the chill-out area or on the sun chairs chatting with the other guests. Its the massive and fully equipped 24hr kitchen where we make dinners all together and also make huge mojitos, sangrias and caipirinhas almost every night. Its the more private common area where you can be loud all night long playing pool, watching a movie or drinking til you pass out. Its an easy place to meet people as we get the guests together to go to the beach or to the park and, at night, we have activities and take you all out to the best bars, pubs, and discos in town. All free of charge! Our staff is a very fun multi-national group who speak English, Spanish, Catalan (of course), Portuguese and a bit of Italian and French, too. We love to make parties with you, tell you all the stories of Barcelona and show you the best spots in town. We offer a wide range of tours and special events throughout Barcelona, as well as discounts to restaurants or even free dinners. Hostel One Sants is an easy 12-minute walk from Sants Station, the main train station in Barcelona. Were also very close to Camp Nou, Baras football stadium, and near Montjuic, Barcelonas largest mountainous park. Just like the Bara is not just a team, Hostel One Sants is not just a hostel, its the perfect place for you to drop your bags in Barna (local slang for Barcelona) and really have a good time. So, we hope to see you soon and receive you with our very refreshing and, at the same time hot Welcome Shot.
