The perfect location to stay in barcelona. Walking distance to many landmarks, metro and bus lines. You can get back to your room from anywhere in the city at any hour with little effort. Free wifi, your own toilet (in the twin room) w/ hair drayer and towels . Everything is clean enough. Friendly people.

This hostel was amazing. It is well located right next to the cathedral, a short walk from the aerobus and metro stations, and has lots of food and nightlife nearby. The staff are very friendly and helpful and easy to get along with. The main reception area was under renovation when I stayed there so I can't speak for the... More

We liked the look of the private rooms and booked that for a cheap stay in Barcelona. But beware, the private rooms are in completely separate building 5 minutes walk away. There are 3 rooms in one apartment. The bathroom smelt of chlorine very strongly due to poor ventilation. Secondly the guests staying in the other rooms were smoking indoors... More

We apologize for the inconveniences during your stay in the private Beates rooms. We didn't know anything about smoker guests inside the room. More

I felt very comfortable in the welcoming athmosphere, especially with the reception placed in the kitchen due to construction. Very cosy we sat every night together, sharing a bottle of nice spanish Rioja. We got all the information for food, trains, busses from the receptionists. And sleeping was comfortable in the nice beds.I liked the electricity in the lockers, that... More

I think that the rating of 92% is too high for the reality of the hostel. It's not too bad, but not too good either. It didn't look as good as it seems in the pictures. We didn't even see most of the rooms, dinning rooms and kitchens that they show in the pictures. They said that the reception was... More

I stayed in itaca during my first ever solo trip! I could not have found a better hostel ever. The location is ABSOLUTELY UNBEATABLE. A two minute walk from the cathedral, a 5 minute walk to las ramblas and the market, tons of cute tapas restaurants and cafes near by. The staff were absolutely incredible. Explained everything so clearly and... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Itaca Hostel. It's located close to all the main sights and close to a lot of places to go at night. Nice staff that always help you with problems or recommend you places to go. And there's always someone to hang out with in the nice common room. Breakfast is okay. The only negative... More

I really enjoyed staying here. It was in a really good location, right in the gothic part of the city. And in walking distance to a lot of the sights. With metro stops close by too it's a great place to stay to see this city. The staff were very helpful giving tips on where to go and how to... 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.
