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?

We stayed at Itaca hostel for one night in a private bedroom. 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

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...

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
