I had the best time here. Arrived at 7pm and was immediately invited to join for dinner at 8:30. Like coming home! The team at Paralelo give extremely hospitable, helpful and friendly service. The rooms are nice and clean and the beds very comfortable. Will definitely book here again if I go to BCN again.

This is the best place to stay in Barcelona!

The rooms were clean and comfortable and the bathroom was always spotless. There were excellent facilities such as free wifi, computers to use, kitchen, commonroom area and an outdoor area to enjoy the sun. They also have a lift! So no lugging baggage upstairs. It feels completely secure as there are lockers in the room, keys for the rooms and a code for the outer door.

But the best thing about this place is the staff! They go out of their way to make you feel at home. They give you loads of information about where to go and how to get there. Plus they cook you dinner everynight and offer to take you out to some of the best bars and clubs in Barcelona. We were amazed at how kind and generous they were!

It's a fun place to stay and I would highly recommend it!

I stayed in Hostel One Paralell for 3 nights and had an absolutely amazing time. They truly made my trip to Barcelona such a great experience. Very clean rooms, showers and bathrooms, very nice facilities, a great common area for meeting other travelers, awesome food, and the friendliest staff EVER! I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Stayed in two different rooms, and they were both great!

Me and my friend stayed in that hostel for three nights and it was the best choice we've ever made. Angel and the other staff were so helpful! They told us where we should go out to eat, places we needed to see etc. They also offer free dinners which is awesome. The rooms are clean and the bathrooms are even cleaner. Overall it's a great hostel, top notch!

free wi-fi (one of the most important thing), jacuzi, barbecue, cerveza and tortillas.
The right place to have chill days in Barcelona, very central located, near the sea and not so far from Les Corts and the well known ramblas.
The rooms, bath and common areas are well cleaned.
Add a good hospitality and courtesy...isn't it awesome?

Living in this hostel was like staying with a real family. It´s a cosy place with lots of character. As soon as you go in, you´ll be greeted by boisterous Spanish music and very excited hosts who are always willing to help you out with anything. Highly recommend heading back for dinner for cooking lessons and delicious, home-cooked meals. Also a great way to meet new people.

GO TO HOSTEL ONE.

I've stayed in a lot of hostels but Hostel One may be the best! Free dinner every night is not only delicious, it lets you get to know the other people staying at the hostel and you save a lot of money by not going out to eat. Everything was clean, especially the bathrooms...a nice change from a lot of other places. We stayed in a double which was great, but if you stay in the larger rooms people do have to walk through them in order to get to the smaller rooms. The whole staff was great and always willing to help. If you like to go out, Paulina takes people to Club Apolo almost every night. The hostel is a 5 minute walk to the Parallel metro stop and there's a bunch of little convenience stores right on Calle Salva. Can't wait to stay here again when I go back to Barcelona!

Room Tip: Stay in a smaller room if you don't want people walking through your room to get to theirs.

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.
