Enjoyed the place, very helpful and friendly staff. Knowledgable about the city's bus and train systems. Each room had a locker with chargers for devices inside. Also had a nice common room for hanging out or watching tv

I really enjoyed my stay at Itaca. It was centrally located in Barcelona's historic Gothic Quarter, and is in easy walking distance to a lot of Barcelona's vibrant night life. The apartment I stayed in was clean and very cozy and the staff was friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend Itaca, I definitely want to go back!

One of the best hostels I stayed across Europe. Location is a plus point. Very near to central, metro and bus stop for the airport shuttle. They provide a locker with a electrical charging point inside. Nice thought.

You made us blush! Thanks for your words and for taking your time. We provide everything you need. The eletrical charging point inside the lockers it's pretty new, we have little details, maybe for this it's make Itaca Hostel in a big experience. Thanks again! Happy Christmas! All the best!

This hostel was GREAT! Staff was excellent, super secure (almost too much, you had to turn your keys into front desk when you left). But I had a fantastic time, everyone was friendly and I met a few travel buddies. Rooms were clean and so were bathrooms/showers. Showers were confusing to use (water kept shutting off after 30 seconds but probably user error). Very easy to get here from metro/aerobus stop. Near EVERYTHING, very walkable.

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! Unbeatable location, amazing prices, fantastic decor, clean (and smelled really good, which is an odd thing to say I know!), really friendly staff (fluent in English and so happy to give out directions and recommendations), great common space, delicious breakfast...amazing.

Fantastic hostel, not too big, free breakfast was great, obviously owned & run by people who have travelled & stayed in hostels.

The hostel was perfectly situated for our one day stay in Barcelona. It was located close to Plaza Catalunya which provided many dining, site-seeing and public transportation options. The hostel is small but clean and you feel safe. Although you have free WiFi, the connection can be poor in certain areas, but it's a problem that is easily resolved by the desktop station and you are able to print (for a small fee of course). We left too early to taste breakfast so can't comment on that.

Very clean, friendly hostel. Definitely lower key than I expected for Barcelona. If you're traveling in a group and have packed days planned, this is the place for you. This would not be my first recommendation if you're looking to meet people, the common area was quiet and there weren't a ton of hostel organized activities. The location was excellent however and the rooms comfortable.

Excellent hostel. very good location, facilities and staff. The bed sheets could be cleaner (we found a few hairs and fabric wires). Overall a very good hostel.

Location is excellent, staff is helpful. And it's not a party hostel, so if you want simply to rest and relax it's perfect. Cleanliness and service are OK. Just some minor cons: - breakfast time ends at 09.30am... too early, we're in Spain and people are supposed to have fun at night, so... really bad to have to wake up early for your breakfast - dorms aren't that big, there are some fans running all night long to make some air circulation. they're not noisy but can be annoying

The staff were welcoming and professional. Breakfast was solid—cornflakes, muesli, bread, lots of spreads including chocolate, orange juice and milk. Location is in the centre of Barrie Gotic—walking distance to almost everything. Street noise was quite high at night since the french doors were open due to the heat. Bring ear plugs. Lounge and eating areas were amazing. Very easy to meet people. Overall an excellent vibe although not a party hostel. Will definitely stay at Itaca again.
