We were many times in this great city and we tried several possibilities to stay e.g. in hotels, apartments. But never hostals. After beeing at Be Happy Hostal we will definately go back there. Because everything was so nice.... More

Hi, the hostal was ideally situated close to the beach, shops etc. it was cleaned daily and you were able to mingle with the local Spanish people in the mornings to have breakfast. The room was tidy and clean. I would suggest that adding items such as a small TV for entertainment when in the room and possibly having access... More

We choose this hostel mainly for the location, as we had a few days and wanted to enjoy the beach every day. Perfect location, 5 minutes from the beach and 15 from downtown ... the plan was fantastic, explore the city during the day, get to the hostel in the afternoon and go to relax on the sand taking mojitos!!...

Nice hostel, highly recommend. The hostel has a great ambiance and is situated near the city centre and the beach. It's quite small, but with a good price/quality ratio. The staff is really friendly and helpful. They showed us where to drink the best cocktails in town.

The building is very close to the beach and metro for easy access everywhere you could want to go. There are no ocean views and the rooms are very small and basic. For the price it is a good value but don't expect too much. The kitchen between the rooms is freezing cold in the winter as there is no... More

Our week stay in the hostal was a pleasure. Four-bed room is actually a separate flat. There were two balconies, air conditioner and a fridge. The room was being cleaned every day. Five minutes walk from Barceloneta metro station and Barcelonetta beach. I recomend it for every one!

This place is located very close to the beach in a very typical Spanish street. It is very close to the tram station and there are ATMs and several restaurants in the vicinity.

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... More

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.
