This place just felt like home, I met so many amazing people and all the staff were so friendly and welcoming. (Especially Angel, legend) This was my first time staying in a hostel abroad and I'm delighted I made the right decision. The place is so clean and comfortable. Close to all sights by metro or walking. A Family meal and nights out organised by the hostel every night. I will be back to Barcelona again because of this hostel alone :)

Room Tip: I stayed int he quad room, which adjoined the 6-bed dorm. Nice bathroom with the Quads but its all r...

As far as hostels go this is one of the best in Europe. Very clean including the bathrooms. Free dinners by the staff that really creates a great atmosphere. They take you out every night but the hostel itself is not a party one. The staff was truly amazing and was always there for you. Carla was my girl! Location is great as well as it is surrounded by local places at cheap prices. One euro tapas down the street!

Room Tip: If you intend to eat here make sure you mention any food allergies.

Nice, very friendly and welcoming stuff - which is the most important thing in a Hostel.
We spent a quality time in Barcelona, and everything thanks to the people working there, their advice and so much time they dedicated to help us get around.
We'll definitely return one day and recommend this place to our friends.

Good location, absolutely the BEST directions how to get to the hostel included in my booking confirmation email. Group dinners are delicious and great welcoming atmosphere. Nice kitchen available for use for free, jacuzzi, gorgeous patio, lounge area. Good Internet, lift available! 6 person rooms with adjoining 4 person rooms had good bathroom facilities. Great recommendations from staff, free printing of tour vouchers and tickets, three computers for use no extra cost, great lockers designed for backpacks, not the tall skinny school lockers! Love this place and next time I'm in Barcelona will definitely stay here again!

An excellent hostel with friendly staff, clean rooms and a brilliant atmosphere. They cook an optional meal each night for all guests which was a great way of meeting people, and we got some great advice about the best time to see the sights, cool bars etc! I have no hesitation in recommending this hostel.

More of a home than a hostel, the people are more friends than staff. The team of travellers is always willing to give you insider tips so you can enjoy this city the local way. It is kept very clean and the free dinner (tips are optional) is a great way to meet your hostel family as well as keeping costs down. If you're in town you'd be stupid not to stay here!

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.
