We had a private room, which was really small but very clean. If you just use your room for sleeping, this hostal is a very good alternative. You can reach beach and lot of bars in a couple of minutes. The hostel is located in the 3-5 floor of a normal spanish house. On every floor there are two appartements...

It is a really great accomodation, which is close to the sea, but it is also 10 minutes from the center. The staff was really kind with us, and the accomodation is in a great state. I can recommend it to every people who wants to have a cheap but nice acconomdation in barcelona!

Be Happy Beach was definitely one of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in. It didn’t feel like a hostel at all which was fantastic. The staff were fantastically helpful and friendly (big thank you to David and especially René for making our stay that enjoyable). The rooms were small but very clean (!!) and the beds comfortable. The location...

I've been staying at this hostel with a friend for 5 nights and I really enjoyed it. It's quite close to the beach, the hostel was clean and the staff was really nice and helpful. It's not so big so you easily feel like home. I can only recommend to stay there :)

This was the cheapest Hostel we booked on our recent trip to Barcelona. My gf and I got the private room for 17 Euro each per night -- very cheap. Location was good, very close to the beach. However, appartment was mucho basic. No kitchen, tiny little fridge in someone else's appartment, tiny room, sketchy sheets/covers, mosquitoes, and terrible washroom/shower....

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighbourhood Profile
Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
