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.

This hostel was great. Easy to find with directions they give you. In an excellent location. Only complaint is the bed I was in didn't have the little box on the wall next to it to store stuff on not sure if they are new and it wasn't up yet or broken and not yet fixed but it's a good idea to have.

Perfect location to explore Barcelona on foot :) Reception open 24 hours, so if you are arriving at night there is no problem and you will still get some sleep ;) Very nice, helping and friendly staff. Each of them can give you from their point of view some tips what to see and explore in the city or show you some particular places you are interested in. P.S. Sergio - the band I was trying to remember so hard actually starts from "K" not "S" :D They are called Khuda.

Not too much wrong with this hostel, very clean,quiet and nice and secure. The facilities were good without being outstanding but other than for party travellers I would recommend staying here.

The nicest hostel we've ever stayed in and better than quite a few hotels! The staff are very friendly and the owner gave us loads of useful info to help us enjoy our stay. Really central and very easy to get to all the main hostspots in the barrio gotic. Could not recommend Itaca more strongly.

This is a great hostel. I ended up being super sick the night I spent there, and the staff was super friendly/helpful - offering to make me tea. Clean. Even though I was in the shared 10 bed dorm, the vibe was quiet and respectful. Easy to use pay phone and Internet. Breakfast on the balcony was lovely. If you want to stay in the city center, it's a no brainer - stay here.

I was very dissapointed with the hostel, the level of cleanliness in the bathrooms was very poor. Also kind of rediculous that I had to take cold showers everyday... would not suggest this hostel to anyone traveling to Barcelona not to mention that there is no AC

We apologize about that, we clean every day, and we clean the bathrooms very often during the day. We're sorry if you found out the bathrooms dirty. About the AC, we decided don't have it to save energy and be more green. We're sorry again, and thanks to leave your review, we appreciate it.
