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...

Hostel One Paralelo was the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Staff and other travelers became family in the short week that we stayed. The dinners and nightly group outings allowed us to fully enjoy Barcelona, while feeling very much at home. I would recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Barcelona, young and old. The hostel manager, Angel, made...

We stayed here in October after travelling through most of Spain and staying in large hostels or small airbnbs. It was refreshing to find a smaller hostel with a family feeling where everyone was positive and adventurous. Maybe we just had a good group but I would definitely recommend this place. Only thing is to be careful with your belongings...

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
