Hostel One Paralelo
Ranked #26 of 735 Specialty Lodging in Barcelona
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 10, 2012

The best hostel i've ever been. Just loved the concept of the hostel workers cooking for us, showing us around / getting us to great bars and clubs / karaoke, you feel like a big family in there! Of course the conditions were perfect, apart from the staff and the environment. Loved the design inside the hostel, the paintings, the thousands recommendations at the walls, etc...
If you wanna meet new people from all around the world, play poker, chess, play guitar with fantastic Anrel playing along with the harmonic, and spending a wonderful time in Barcelona, this is the best place to go! I will definitely get back and reccomend this to all my friends. The perfect weekend ;)

very nice and helpful staff. They cook every night for free so everyone (guest and staff) can enjoy this meal. That's the best moment to meet people from all over the world and share info and XPs. They also take you to cool places and give you lots of advices and info.

Common areas are segregated from rooms so it is quiet enough to have a good rest.
walking distances from the center and touristic places.

This place is very cool. The staff is incredible, they make you feel welcome, they explain things to you 10 times if you need it. They cook for you every night and take you out to the cool places in Barcelona. Enjoyed my stay there and will definitely come back.

I would definitely recommend it to any travelers who want to meet people. Every night dinner is made for you and everyone gets drunk and has a good time. Many fun games of Kings Cup were played and then everyone would go out after together.

The Staff was awesome (especially Angel--What's up man!) and extremely helpful. Definitely one of the better hostels I have stayed at.

Stayed here for 4 nights in November 2012 on a solo trip. The hostel was easy to find and is walking distance from the metro station and La Rambla. The hostel staff Angel and Cynthia are exceptionally warm and friendly people to deal with, always going the extra mile to ensure a pleasant stay. Facilities are good and in the evenings everyone gathers in the kitchen conservatory to eat the home cooked dinners prepared by hostel staff for free (which really are excellent and worth staying in for). Breakfast buffet food selection is also great.

Couldn't really expect more from a hostel. 5/5

Good air-conditioning, nice staff, great breakfast and free dinner, comfy beds, fun decor, and on a pretty street. The location could be a little closer to the main attractions, though. Just wish I could have booked more nights!

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
