Thanks very much. We hope to see you back! Cheers!


Bedrooms and bathrooms were very spacious. The staff were always very friendly and helpful, and the rest of the people in the hostel were fun and respectful.


It was a pleasant stay, we were in 10 bed dorm, but rooms have really good bed arrangement, so you don't feel like you have 8 people in the room. The stuff was extremely nice and we loved that they let you use the common room and the kitchen even after check out. Location is really nice, close to centre and to the beach. The only down sides were that hot water really needs ages to come out in the shower and that apparently they also rent the common room, because people were sleeping there.

Thanks for taking your time to leave a review. We have a spacious rooms with balcony. About the showers, we know the first person that use the shower have to wait a little bit to have hot water, but then it works normally. We apologize about that. We don't rent the commoon room, but we use it in emergency cases like someone missed their flight and we don't have beds available.


Extremely comfortable hostel. Walking tour was very informative. Highly recommend this place.


Had everything you need from a hostel and was in a great location!

Thanks very much!! We have great facilities for all the guest and we are located in the city centre. All of this mixed with the great guest. What more we need? We hope to see you again. Thanks again ;)


We stayed in a private bedroom/bathroom at Itaca hostel, which was great - it was about a 2-3minute walk away from the main hostel, still in a very good location. The room shared a kitchen & living area (both very modern) with just two other bedrooms, making it easy to cook. The room was clean& large and bathroom very modern. The fan in the room worked well (needed during Summer!). Breakfast included toast & cereals which were good. Would stay again.


Great place to stay!


Beautiful hostel, great location, and wonderful amenities with helpful staff. An oasis of peacefulness and comfort after the business of traveling and the city. Especially liked the communal shelves in bathroom and kitchen, balconies looking out at the street, free tea and coffee, and good maps and info. Great for meeting people, also for chilling out and having a night in. Disliked cold push button showers, but not a big deal. Overall one of my favorite hostels this trip.


We loved this hostel!! Breakfast was awesome and the rooms were comfortable, and staff were happy to help with anything. The common room lounge area was awesome too and we met so many lovely people here :) We also stayed in an Itaca apartment for one night which was incredible!! Such amazing eh value for money!!


It was a nice first hostel experience. I appreciated the bathrooms being clean, however it would have been nice to have the trash in the room picked up on occasion. It was nice to have the kitchen... and the dining room. It was a bit warm but I liked that we could open the balcony window. The lockers are quite small. Breakfast was poor.


Fantastic location good hostel but not a party hostel


Beautiful, well stocked, great common areas. Great location, nice for a hostel night in. Not a party hostel, but still great for meeting people. Peaceful, clean, comfortable. Great hostel!


Itaca was lovely, we stayed in the twin private room twice during our trip and both times the staff was great, rooms were great and noise never bothered us.

Thanks very much for taking your time to leave a review. We're glad to hear this, the hostel experience is unique, you can meet people from around the world, and Itaca has the perfect conditions to love the hostels. We hope to see you back.


Great location and very comfortable, but rooms were quite hot at night and hot water in the shower wasn't that reliable


Stayed in a separate building so can't comment on the main building. Great facilities, very clean and GREAT location. Recommended!


The hostel has a really nice breakfast that is included. We would have liked if the hostel provided some evening activities or at least collaborated with other hostels evening activities. We were also disappointed in the lack of knowledge the front desk staff had with the city transit system as we almost missed our flight because of their inaccurate directions. The hostel is close to restaurants, the market and shopping.
