Me and my sister came here for the weekend. We had a twin room which was just the right size with an AC system which came in handy when suffering with sunburn! Its a 15 min walk from the port area and has a number of restaurants and bars down the road. The bathroom was clean, beds comfy, kitchen well...

Amazing staff. They treat you as their friend, instead of a customer. Family-style dinners, Great guests, and overall amazing experience. I stayed in 5 hostels during my time in Europe, and the Hostel One Paralelo was significantly better than the rest.

Very social hostel. Great location. Staff was amazing and gave GREAT recommendations. Barcelona was probably my favorite stop, and this hostel and a lot to do with it. Angel who runs it is a stand up guy. Staff will take you out every night to very fun night spots!

Nice hostel in the city. Metro stations are very close, restaurants with great Tapa's, bars, and grocery markets are all within a block. The checkin was great and the receptionist was beyond helpful with advice on what to do while there. Only downside is small showers.

I have stayed at quite a few hostels, but this one, by far is the most amazing. Angel is one of the kindest people I have ever met, and I know that when I come back to Barcelona this is the only place I would want to stay. Every single thing the hostel recommends is amazing (food tips, bars, clubs...

I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights before meeting some friends who were joining for the weekend. The hostel wasn't sold as a 'party hostel' but I'd go as far as to say it was. The vibe was very 'gap year travellers' and the noise went on through the night until around 6am. Wouldn't recommend for older travellers. Amazing...

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
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
