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.

El hostel está muy bien situado a pocos minutos de la parada de metro de Urquinaona y Catalunya por lo que el desplazamiento esta asegurado. Está muy cerca de la catedral. El personal es magnífico y la limpieza del hostel estupenda. Buena relación calidad/precio. Yo fui de vacaciones y para crear artículos para mi blog de turismo http://europeosviajeros.blogspot.com.es/ y la experiencia fue genial.

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.

El hostal es perfecto para personas que quieren descansar, falta un poco de actividades de integración para los huéspedes... El staff fue muy colaborador y servicial

Gracias por tomarte el tiempo para escribir el comentario, nos gusta que nuestros huespedes descansen placidamente, como si estuvieran en su casa. Tenemos actividades durante el dia, por ejemplo el free walking tour, pero pensaremos de nuevas para poder seguir sorprendiendo a nuestros invitados. Muchas gracias. Esperamos verte pronto.

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.

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

Le personnel nous a accueilli avec un grand sourire et plein de bons conseils sur Barcelone. La chambre était grande (avec un garde-robe walk-in!) et silencieuse. La salle de bain partagée était propre. Le petit déjeuner gratuit était simple, mais apprécié et le salon/cuisine agréable pour préparer son lunch acheté au petit marché tout près. À ne pas manquer: le marché local tout près de l'hôtel et les restos du marché qui sont très bons. Nous recommandons sans hésitation.

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.

O hostel tem duas unidades e apenas uma recepção. O aceso aos quarto é por escadas - não tem elevador. Depois do check-in fomos encaminhados para a unidade 2.

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!
