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

Itaca Hostel in Barcelona is a great little hostel in a really good location in the Gothic quarter (Barri Gotic). The hostel is quite small but has everything you need. Toilets and showers are pretty clean and the common room is good to hang out in and a chance to chat to other travellers and make some friends. The rooms... More

Last week we went with three girls to Itaca hostel in Barcelona. We had a private bedroom in the Ithaca Blue appartement, which was a few minutes away from the hostel.The appartment has a great location, since it's situated near the main streat La Via Laietana and it's only a two minute walk to La Rambla. It's in the centre... More

In august 2014 we had planned a nice trip in Barca and looked forward to go to Itaca Hostel (which looked good on the internet.) We aren't complainers and admit the hostel was absolutely nicely furnitured and the staff was friendly, but we had an awful stay. Six days in a row, we've seen big cockroaches: as well in the...

The location of the hostel was fantastic - right near the Cathedral in the Gothic Quarter. We had a private room/bathroom which was located away from the main hostel (about a 2-3 minute walk) - this worked really well for us, as we shared an apartment with just two other rooms (with spacious, modern kitchen & lounge with balcony). It... More

Nice Appartement with little balcony like the locals right in barri gotic...perfect! We had a room for 4 people which was absolutely big enough and cosy. We shared the living room with a nice leather Couch, the kitchen and the bathroom with two other rooms (prolly for 2 and 3 people) and that never was a problem. The Appartement is... More
