Itaca is a small hostel with superb staff. It was very clean and had lockers for each person in the dorms. There was a big kitchen, eating area, and living room with a tv. It was in the best location right next to Cathedral de Barcelona. Easy to walk to everything and near 2 metro stops. I would definitely recommend this place again!

We were staying in another building from the dorms so can't speak for them. The room was nice, kitchen was the best part and breakfast was quite good too. Only downside was that the bathrooms were a bit dirty and there were only two toilets and showers for at least more than eight people. Best thing about the place was the location, close to all the popular sites and quirky areas.

Thanks very much for this review! You were in Beatles apartment, it have 3 double rooms and you shared the bathroom with 6 people only. We clean the bathrooms every day. We apologize if the bathrooms were a bit dirty in those days. We hope to see you again. Kind regards.

Loved this hostel! Beds and lockers in dorm rooms were great. Great common room, kitchen and eating area. Small hostel which made it a comfortable environment with lots of attention from staff when needed. Location is amazing for the price. Would recommend for sure :)

Average hostel, not very sociable though. The common room closes at night. If you want to party, its not really the place to stay. Located right next to La Rambla, which has its ups and downs; it's a super touristy area and kind of far to go anywhere else and the metro is expensive so it'll cost you. But it's a clean place, good price, good kitchen

This place is just what you need when you want somewhere central but quiet,a popular hostel but small/private and a place you don't jut sleep but can also hang out and to have some downtime. Perfect stay for us as a young couple.

My boyfriend and I stayed one night in the mixed dorm and I liked that we got lockers (large enough for all of our luggage!) for free. We were in the twin private room for the rest of the week, and it was like having a hotel room for a fraction of the price! Private bathroom, though we had to use the showers in the shared bathroom, which had hot water most of the time. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Loved free coffee all day!

The location of the hostel was excellent, right in the center of Barcelona and very close to metro stations. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were OK, with nice lockers, and the internet was also good. The breakfast was plain, but not an issue. And the common room was nice. I really liked it and intend to go back to this hostel in my next trips to Barcelona!

It's got a fabulous location, right in the Gothic center of the city. It's been very clean, the two times I've stayed, and the wifi has been upgraded and worked like a charm. Breakfast in is great, so you don't have to scramble for something before walking around. Showers were fine, and you get a good sized locker per person who checks in. Probably my favourite hostel that I've stayed in.

I really enjoy those days I stayed there. After I arrived, my friend told me it is recommended by the "lonely planet". It's excellent!

Everything was clean, good spacious lockers! Guests had to be buzzed in, but reception was 24/7 so this didn't take more time than opening the door with a key, and security is a HUGE plus in Barcelona - I got my purse stolen and one of the hostel employees gave me 10 euros! Staff is super friendly and helpful. Very close to a metro and right in Plaça de Cataluyna, good spot.

Very friendly staff. Excellent location, rooms are very clean as well. I had a shared dorm as well as a private room during my stay. Private room is a shared apartment with common kitchen and bathroom. If taking aerobus to city centre walk back opposite the direction of the bus and go straight down that Main Street, the cathedral will be on your left in a big square (possibly with a mideval market on) then follow Itaca directions. It's 2minutes from the cathedral

I had a great time at the hostel. It felt homey, the staff were all really kind and helpful, and the location was decent. My only complaint is that the showers do not work well - the temperature of the water would fluctuate a ton between scalding hot and freezing, with little in between.

Owner Comment (Hide)
We're glad we read you spent a great time with us. Thanks so much for your words. About the showers we installed a new hot water system one week ago. We hope the temperature of water don't fluctuate anymore. Thanks again.
