“Best hostel I've stayed in!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

This hostel is perfect! The staff are amazing and the tip system they have is great for getting cheap and delicious meals! The rooms are great and the views from the balcony are stunning! The rooms are safe and secure and everyone we meet at the hostel were really friendly and there is a great community atmosphere throughout the hostel! If I return to Barcelona I will definitely stay here again!

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 you meet plenty of new people. Definitely gonna come back here next time i am in Barna!

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 nice, with lockers and very clean bathrooms. If you are coming to barcelona, stay here!

The staff was amazing, the rooms and bathrooms were nice, great common areas, and walking distance to the Metro and many of the Barcelona sites. The guests were all really friendly and respectful too, but it is a young partying crowd that stays here.

Good location and everyone staying was very friendly. The staff were chatty and took us out at night. The rooms were clean and a good size. The dinner was great for socialising and also there quite a few hot girls with plenty of croissants to go around. Good hostel

My stay in Hostel One Paralelo was awesome. Amazing staff, standing out Angel and Ricardo. Angel knows so good Barcelona and is always trying to do the best for your stay there, besides you can get for free in the best clubs there thanks to him. Ricardo is incredible charming person, it was a pleasure to meet him. It's really easy to meet people, so that great for solo travellers, free dinners all days in made-cook style. I really loved also the neighbourhood in which Hostel One Paralelo is located, authentic and not noisy.

If you try this hostel, you'll be part of Hostel One Paralelo family!

This was my first time traveling to Europe - and I could not have booked a more perfect hostel for my stay. Not only does Hostel One Paralelo have all the amenities a traveler relies on (good bed, clean linens, locker, good bathroom/shower, kitchen and common areas) but also all the things you don't necessarily think of! The staff creates an atmosphere that encourages people to meet each other by cooking dinner every night (everyone $ tips for cooked meal), offering to bring people to bars they want to try, giving you maps of the area with tips, telling you what metro to take or just sitting and chatting with you. It is a very clean place with a very sweet couple that clean every room everyday. They have computers available to use for free anytime. The kitchen, common area and patio are great places to hang out and meet other travelers. Also, the area feels residential but there are some seriously delicious tapas restaurants within a 2 block radius - and the metro is just a few minutes by foot. I met so many wonderful people staying at Hostel One Paralelo in Barcelona that I booked again for my return flight. Highly recommended for solo female travelers - always felt safe, like I was coming home.

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.
