It's uncommon to stay at a hostel that truly makes you feel at home and welcomed. In my experience it's happened very few times and Hostel Ones amazing staff is responsible for that feeling on my recent stay. From the moment I walked in (4 hours before my check in) I was greeted and helped by Moya (5 stars to... More

I had a great time at this hostel! All the staff are so friendly and welcoming, giving me a map on arrival. We were taken out every night for drinks, and went for a visit to the pool. I would not of gone to many of the places in Barcelona without the recommendation of staff. Dinner and breakfast was delicious.... More

What an amazing hostel. We were greeted so welcomingly by the lovely Natasja. She introduced us to other travellers and thoroughly went through a map with us pointing out good places to eat, drink and visit. She set us up so well. In the evenings everyone was encouraged to get together for an included meal and sangria. We then all... More

Most amazing hostel. The guests, staff, location was amazing. Every evening you have dinner together and can go out. Very social, clean, and fun. I would love to go back. They do anything to make sure you have a good time and feel at home.

Very welcoming hostel, everyone eats dinner together at night and goes out to bars/clubs afterward depending on what you feel like. Clean accommodation but space was the main issue for me - quite cramped in the bunk rooms but made up for with the social side of things. Would go back again.

As a solo female traveler, Hostel One was the perfect choice! The staff is super cool, they do whatever they can to make you feel at home. Every night they organize a dinner and then everybody goes out to bars or clubs. Most of the travelers there were alone and it's very easy to meet people. If you are solo,... More

All hostels in Barcelona in this area are expensive but I don't think this was worth the 32 euro per night. The exception I think would be if you were travelling solo - the organized bar nights and activities and family dinners seemed great. However, if you don't need/want this (as I did not given I was travelling with a... More

We booked this place based on the nearly flawless reviews on a different hostel booking site, paying quite a bit more than other similar hostels. Overall, it was a great experience (friendly staff, free dinner, socials each night, good location) but there were just a few niggling problems: there were a few too many people around who straddled the staff/volunteer...

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colorful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.

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
