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

The location alone was awesome, and in the heart of my favorite neighborhood: barri gotic, yet away from the noisy touristy parts of the city. My friend and I shared the private two bedroom apartment where we had a public restroom and kitchen. The apartment was really clean and nice, and I felt comfortable hanging out at the common areas...

The staff were great and made me feel at home straight away. they help you with any information you need and helped me... More

This hostel was the worst hostel I've ever stayed in. First, the rooms were HOT. The fans barely worked and there was little ventilation. The bathroom had no window so no air could escape...it reeked. The showers had an automatic water shut off so every 15 seconds I would have to turn the water on. The hostel did not do... More

If you are seeking a party hostel, just turn around, you've got the wrong place!! Itaca has a family feel, the staff sincerely care about you, your stay and your experiences in BCN. The hostel is quaint, cozy, super clean and has all you need in a home away from home!!And, its location, a stone's throw from The Cathedral in... More

The staff were very welcoming and offered personal recommendations on where to go and how to get places. The beds were comfortable and rooms were quiet. Met some great people during my stay and it's unbeatable for location. Will return.

It was a scorching day when the eight of us arrived. Spirits remained high, despite the lack of sleep, and we all looked to reclining together in a comfortable hostel. However, the beautiful location of the hostel - just a few metres from a world famous Gaudí church - was not enough to calm the group as we were swiftly... More

I asked for 3 beds for 3 women and was assured of that. However, the blue apartment has one ordinary double bed and one single bed. There is a ceiling fan and it helped as it was pretty stuffy at night. If we closed the window it was too hot and we could still jar the noise from he street.... More

This hostel only caters for around 30 people in total. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. It is not a big party hostel and people went out to drink rather than doing so in the hostel. If you´re looking to meet a lot of people to go out drinking with then this is not the best choice of hostel,... More
