Very well! Friendly staff, good atmosphere. Nevertheless hostel not very big and more expensive than others, but well placed.
If you like small inns, be at home, then you are in the right place. I had a good stay in this little hostel, everything, everything, everything is taken in the price of the beginning you pay (sheets, cupboard, towel, soap, breakfast, cadnas, and even apples offered!) We can talk with people easily and the staff is available, welcoming and pleasant.
Well located; close to the metro, bus lines and main tourist sites. Comfort: summary but OWN ++. heating against nonexistent .. shower bof car insufficient water flow. The breakfast is certainly understood but 'industrial': pity. The bedding deserves a touch of nine; as well as some power outlets and switches ... The staff is against really TOP, attentive and helpful !! his presence 24H24 is a more reassuring.
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!
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.
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.
Staff is amazingly helpful and friendly. Great location, great atmosphere, free dinner every night and always a party planned!
