Itaca Hostel was very centrally located in Barcelona, close to the main cathedral and in easy walking distance to Los Ramblas and the busstop for the airport. The facilities were quite modern. The only disapponting thing was that there was no hot water the first night. The next morning and the next night there was plenty of hot water.

Can't beat he location, but the breakfast is pretty meager and the men's room was consistently with water all over he floor (badly designed showers) and no TP.

Loved Itaca hostel! The location is PERFECT and the staff is very nice and helpful. The adorable British man at reception was so sweet and had lots of recommendations! Hostel beds are very comfy with large luggage lockers. Great security and everything was very sanitary. Chill out room is very comfortable but does not offer a ton of atmosphere. Would stay here again!

It was a little hard to find the hostel in between the alleyways, but it's super close to the cathedral and easy to walk around the Barri Gotic area. It was very clean and the other people staying there were quiet and respectful.

Had a great time here. We are a couple in our early 30s and were a little worried about being out of place at a youth hostel, but we were pleasantly surprised to find many 30-year-olds around and the atmosphere was great for making new friends. The kitchen is good, the showers are pretty uncomfortable but you just make do. To have a place like this to stay in Barcelona was really special.

Bottom line? A very good hostel to stay in. I think it's strongest points are: Good location and helpful, friendly staff. It is very safe and clean. I found the atmosphere somewhat dull, but It's just my personal taste, comparing to other hostels I've visited in Barcelona. If you are looking for a more quiet hostel, this is the place for you.

This hostel was a good place to sleep in a great location. The staff were friendly and the rooms clean and comfortable. The hostel didn't have any organised activities and this made it harder to meet people initially. The breakfast was pretty average and the push button showers were rather annoying! Overall however I think it's a good, fairly quiet hostel where you can have a good night sleep and are close to all of the major sights/activities in Barcelona.

Very homely hostel, had a great stay. Would be good if they organise some events themselves, like taking people out. However they were able to direct where to find a pub crawl. Will stay again.
