You're not booking into a hostel, you're gaining a temporary family. I booked only 2 nights and ended up staying 5, and I would still be there if I had time! Book it, book now and don't look back. Great location, facilities, amazing staff, and overall 10/10.

I've been traveling around Europe for a couple months and stayed at a few popular hostel chains like generator, plus, wombat, bulldog, St Christopher's etc. But Hostel One Paralelo has been one of the best experiences by far! The staff is super nice! Jennifer, Maoro (I hope I spelt your name correctly) and everybody else were super warm and went... More

Although I've only stayed in one hostel in my life, I already know that Hostel One Paralelo is one of the best in the world. I've now stayed there a couple of times, even bringing along some friends, and both times it has been an equally amazing experience. The staff are the most welcoming and thoughtful people from all over... More

The hostel itself is pretty small but very warm and welcoming. The staff are very friendly. We had 4 people in our own private room. It was a little cramped but the bunk beds were a good size. Bathrooms are nice and clean. It is a party hostel so there is a event every night and during the day too... More

Stayed with a friend for one night and already felt at home by the time we left. The location is good (a little far from the main tourist sites but in a nice district) and everything was up to our expectations. The staff were fantastic, shout out to Miranda! At night they made dinner for everyone and we all sat... More

The main highlight of the hostel is that it is very social and there is free dinner every night which allows you to easily meet people. Moreover, they organise events during the day as well which is such great thing to do! Rooms are spacious and the vibe is superb. One of the best hostels I have stayed at!

This hostel is special. The staff is so wonderful and do everything they can take my your stay in Barcelona as social, efficient and cheap as possible. Cannot thank the staff enough. Special shout outs to Flo, Maro, Andre, Batiste, and everyone at Hostel One that made this my favourite hostel I've stayed in to date!

Had a great time at Hostel One Paralelo, purely because of the staff who work there. Anthony, Roman and Miranda went above and beyond to ensure we saw the best of Barcelona whilst making the most of the surrounding night life and little gems in the neighbourhood.

Just come back from a quick solo trip to chill and explore Barcelona. Picked this place from the reviews and it was even better than expected! The location is great, right round the corner from Parallel and in walking distance of La Rambla, was really easy to find. The hostel itself has a really cool set up, with a nice... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful 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
