My boyfriend and I will most likely be going to Barcelona July 19-23, but I'm having such a difficult time trying to find a hotel!
I don't care if it's not a 5 star hotel, we just need a place to sleep. But I don't want to get a dorm room in a hostel, because this is the only time I'll see him all summer. If we get a private bed in a hostel, will it be two twin beds? I'm confused. I've already looked on kayak.com and sites like it, but the cheap hotels are sooo far away from the city, so I don't know if it would be better to get a cheaper hotel farther away, or try to get a private room in a hostel. I don't think we would have a problem taking public transportation into the city if we were farther away, we just don't want to be like an hour away or anything.
Can anyone recommend a cheap hotel or hostel (with private rooms)?
Thank you so much for your help!

The only suggestion I can make "on short notice", would be to visit your local Library or larger Book stores, and have a look in some Guidebooks. They usually have numerous listings for reliable Hotels. You could also check www.tripadvisor.com as there's LOTS of information there!
As you'll be travelling in July (PEAK tourist season) and time is short, it will important to get this sorted quickly! You may have to pay more than planned, just to find something on such short notice.
If I find any new information, I'll post another note. Hopefully MTH, WT or one of the others will have some good suggestions for you.

As you're finding out and as Eagle noted, mid-Summer in Barca will be heavily booked already. Not knowing where you've already tried, I'll just give a sample of different standards of accommodation, but all are in the centre or nearby:
Barcelona is really nice place to hang around. There are too many hotels where you can stay like 987 Barcelona Hotel, AApartments in city center ,ABaC Restaurant Hotel Barcelona GL Monumento. All these hotels are really nice.
