Be Happy Hostal
Ranked #367 of 735 Specialty Lodging in Barcelona

The owner is very welcoming, the price is very low and the place is in a perfect location, near the beach, near metro stations and near the city center. There are supermakets and restaurants around. And WIFI at the hotel was very useful.

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 with two sleeping rooms. Due to this, you do not have a "meeting" place where you can meet the other guests. You are really on your own. Each appartement has a small bathroom, including a shower in the toiletroom :-) That's funny - like in a camper.

All in all we can recommend this hostel, because of the good location, the clean rooms and the friendly staff.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on level 4 - stairs are steep

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 is good as well as it is located near the Barceloneta metro station and the beach. There are also some convenience stores in the neighbourhood. Overall I enjoyed my stay here very much and would definitely recommend it to anybody who needs a cheap bed for some nights. The only minus for me was the lack of kitchen which might deter anyone travelling long-term.

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.
We stayed three nights and I was losing it. If your with your gf and can afford the 20 Euros more per night, you are way better off doing so and investing in a little more comfort !
Good place for backpackers/group of friends on a tight budget though!
