This place is amazing. Staff have been really nice and helpful and guests have been really friendly - the common room is a great place to make friends. It's location is superb - it's virtually right in front of the cathedral meaning it's really central. All the facilities have been good a breakfast is nothing fancy but it's still ok... More

This was the perfect option for what my friends and I were wanting it for. There were 3 of us who work as Au Pairs in Barcelona and for my birthday we got a 3 bed private room. It was perfect because the location is amongst all the action in Barcelona. It is 1 minute walk from the Cathedral and... More

Excellent hostel with very helpful staff! The location was superb as it’s situated around 5 minutes from the main square. Food was included in the price and set you up nicely for the day whilst the rooms were clean and spacious. Would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone travelling to Barcelona.

Nice hostel that feels like a shared hotel. Felt like I was missing that social experience as they don´t have much by way of common space that.. you know.. actually encourages people to hang out. Might have to do with me showing up in November?

Our apartment had three private bedrooms (which were occupied though we didn't see the others much) and shared living, kitchen, and bathroom areas. All the areas were very, very clean and modernly decorated. The living room and our bedroom had windows that opened so we could see and... More

Stayed for one solo night when connecting through Barcelona back home to Toronto. Though I was only there for about 12 hours including my hours spent sleeping, the staff at the front desk were very helpful in recommending a great tapas bar nearby for a quick meal and offered to put a movie on in the common room for me,...

I stayed three nights in september at Itaca Hostel and I really liked it! The staff is always helpful, there is a nice, familiar atmosphere and the living room is amazing! Great, comfortable place to hang out and meet people and to plan the next step of the journey. The rooms were also really good; big enough, with balcony, and... More

Staying in Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
