Admittedly I have not stayed in any other hostel in Barcelona so cannot compare. However, I enjoyed my first stay in August last year so much that when it came to booking again this February I did not even think to look elsewhere. The location I excellent and I think it is good value. All of the staff I met... More

I've stayed there several times and would continue to do so. It's so charming, friendly staff, great location in the old city. I especially recommend the private rooms/apartments in a new separate building--it was incredibly clean.

We stayed in one of the private rooms which is in a different building to the dorms, but only two streets away or so. We were lucky as we booked the only private room that has an ensuite, thank god as the other guests that were there using the shared bathroom were dirty, messy and leaving their babies nappies on...

Itaca hostel for me was a last minute option but turned out to be a great decision. The staff members were very friendly, helpful and spoke very good English. The hostel location was extremely convenient. I stayed at the dormitory so cannot comment about the private rooms but the dorms were clean and very convenient. Only the bunk bed ladder... More

The size and very nice people at the services, proportioned an excellent experience for me. And talking to other friends (that's it, the special conditions of Itaca Hostel made us friends), they had the same opinion. A nice place to be in Barcelona!

This place is amazing. Staff have been really nice and helpful and guests have been really friendly - the common room is a great place to make friends. It's location is superb - it's virtually right in front of the cathedral meaning it's really central. All the facilities have been good a breakfast is nothing fancy but it's still ok... More

This was the perfect option for what my friends and I were wanting it for. There were 3 of us who work as Au Pairs in Barcelona and for my birthday we got a 3 bed private room. It was perfect because the location is amongst all the action in Barcelona. It is 1 minute walk from the Cathedral and... More

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.

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.
