Itaca was an amazing hostel. We (two girls) stayed in a mixed 8 person dorm room and had no problems. Everyone, including the staff, was very friendly. Great movie selection for no charge. Only annoyance was not having outlets by the beds, but no big deal. We walked everywhere from the hostel- the beach, Las Ramblas, restaurants, tour bus hubs,... More

The location of the hostel is amazing, just around the corner from the Cathedral, in the gothic district. Itaca is not advertised as a 'party hostel' so you can sleep at night, but it was still very easy to meet other travelers with whom to hang out during the day or go out at night. The rooms were clean and... More

Smack dab in the Gothic Quarter. Clean rooms (I stayed in a 4-bed room) and shared bathrooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Slept very well in quiet night surroundings. Ample breakfast to start your day. Forgot to mention that my gf burnt a sofa while ironing, but the staff charged me half price for a new replacement (which they checked online... More

Excellent hostel - everything was clean, the beds were comfortable if a little hard to get into (we stayed in the 6 person mixed dorm which had plenty of space and a balcony). Relaxed vibe and helpful staff. Cool communal areas with balconies. The lockers were superb (had a little shelf for your phone etc which had a power socket... More

Love, love, loved this hostel. Very close to everything. Just walk out the door and there are tons of things to do. The staff were wonderful! They were extremely helpful and friendly. Staff would go out of their way to make sure you had what you needed. The place is kept very clean. Will definitely stay here again!

We were in a family room (4beds). That was really clean, quiet and secure. Well localised, right in the middle of the old town. The appartement was quiet we just saw other people in the morning. The breakfast was included. That was simple but good! The personal is really friendly. The price was correct! I recommand that Youthhostel.

The hostel is great, you only have to walk 30 sec for the first bar, 1 min to the first cathedral, and 5 min to the beach. The hostel is nice, clean, the workers can speak english. They were glad to answer any questions. Thx guys :)

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

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.
