Liked: Best Hostel...period. The staff, friendliness, free dinners, evening introductions, family atmosphere, comfortable bunk beds, clean washrooms, facilities and the organized nightly parties and events. Every night the staff provided a free dinner (optional tips) to all guests and we sat together, got introduced to each other, did a salut and announced which pre-drink and parties we had the option of attending. The staff led us to these parties which were properly organized and initiated. These parties also had free cover and few rounds of free drinks. I have to admit best hostel I experienced throughout Europe.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Amazing hostel! Hostel One creates the best hostel atmosphere possible, wherever you go. Free, tips-based family dinners every night are the best way to get to know your fellow travellers and make plans for the night/next day. The staff are simply amazing! They really try to make the best of your stay and are always up for a laugh or some proper advise! Don't let the location discourage you, it's really not too far from anywhere and the staff makes parties happen all over Barcelona, every night!

Disliked: Nothing, nothing at all!

Liked: Great hostel! Large social areas meant it was really easy to meet loads of great people. The free pub crawls each night were also a really good way to see parts of the cities nightlife that you may miss. The entire hostel was very clean and always felt very secure. The staff are all really friendly and have lots of useful local knowledge. Shout out to Valerie for making or stay that little bit more incredible!

Liked: Well located near the metro, great staff, clean and something is always happening. A great place to meet other travellers.

Disliked: Leaving? The 6 bed dorm is sectioned off by basically cheap wooden screens, but it never felt unsafe or unsecure, so it isn't really an issue and they're up front about it in the email they send out when you book.

Liked: Everything really. Has a close community feel and they provide a free dinner for everyone to socialise and then a night out if you want to. Staff very friendly, amenities good, great food and bars nearby and not too far from anything. I'd definitely recommend this place and wish I had stayed longer!

Disliked: Nothing I can think of!

Liked: This is by far the best hostel I´ve ever stayed in! Indeed a party hostel.The hostel is near by to a bus stop and a metro.The staff were awesome. The hostel had a great atmosphere. They put on a free dinner for the guests (with sangria!!!) which brought everyone together so I was able to meet other people really easily. The staff then took all of the guests out for an awesome night.

Disliked: none in particular.

Liked: If you begin your trip in Barcelona at any other hostel then Hostel One Paralelo, you have already missed an amazing opportunity and a stay of a lifetime. This is by far the best hostel I have ever been to. The memories I have made there are, and will continue to be, one of the greatest times I have ever been afforded. A+ Staff and Employees:Thru the course of my stay the staff was not only my help in the city traveling alone, but became friends I will always cherish. They truly are and hire genuine individuals who are positive, caring, lighthearted, and people filled with integrity.Mauro, Natasja, Milito and Angel (not to forget anyone) were incredible to know and made my stay effortless and extraordinary.A+ Sleeping Area: The beds and halls were always clean and were cleaned daily. Noise is contained downstairs and sleeping is never a problem. The beds were exactly what you need, the showers warm up incredibly fast. It is a very safe environment, for your belongings and yourself. I made incredible connections with everyone I bunked next to.A+ Common Area: The main hangout area promotes a sense of community and family, but mostly importantly, comfort. You meet as many people as you want or don't want. The quality of the people staying there was only enhanced by the hostel's environment, easily made in the common area. There are 3 hi speed computers available and plenty of space to hangout and relax, including an outside patio and couches. A+ Food: The biggest surprise and delight was the food offered at Hostel One Paralelo. I made sure not to miss the FREE dinner each night (based on tips). Always so hardy, flavorful and enough to go around. Being a picky eater, I never had a problem with what they had and loved it every night. Breakfast in the morning for 2 euros is equally as nice. Coffee, croissants, omelette, muffins, and more. A+ Nightlife: What is a better way to get to know the amazing individuals staying around you then amazing excursions offered every single night for free. The whole hostel goes out to incredible bars and clubs that exceed everything you know about conventional places. You never have to worry about being lost or inebriated in the city because of the family of the hostel and the care they use to escort you around to the best places Barcelona has to offer. And yes, Barcelona has some of the best places to offer in the world. Mauro is the man as the whole hostel is privileged to get into places often skipping lines and cover.
