Overview

At Itaca Hostel, we're a small community with a big heart. Whether you're wandering the backstreets of Barcelona on one of our free city tours, making new friends in our lounge or getting travel tips from our 24-hour reception, we'll make you feel like part of the family. We even run free weekly sangria sessions in our bar to give you a taste of the local culture! Get your new mates to teach you a couple of chords on the guitar, or start up a tournament with one of our board games.

Location

We're a 6-minute walk from the old Barri Gòtic (Gothic Quarter), while Las Ramblas shopping street is an 8-minute stroll in the other direction. We're on a little street 2 minutes on foot from Cathedral Square, so we're a welcome haven in the middle of the city. You'll find art galleries, clubs and live music bars just around the corner. From Barcelona Sants train station, hop on the metro for five stops to Plaça Catalunya and you'll be 8 minutes from us on foot. Barcelona-El Prat Airport is a 20-minute taxi ride away, or there are plenty of public transport options to get you here in about 45 minutes.

Rooms and Dorms

Pick from private rooms or mixed dorms, all with clean shared bathrooms featuring hot showers. Dorms have balconies, so you can wake up and step outside into the sun each morning. You'll have bedding included and a private reading light and locker with a plug socket inside so you can charge your phone without supervising it.

Extras and activities

Grab a beer and unwind while watching TV or browsing the web on the free, super-speedy fibre-optic Wi-Fi. There are hairdryers available too, because no one wants to squeeze one of those into their backpack! You can also swap the thriller you just read for a new one in the book exchange.

    Itaca is without a doubt the best hostel that I have ever stayed in. It is located in the heart of the city, less than 5 minutes from Las Ramblas and within walking distance of the important sites. The hostel was clean and well run by helpful staff. The beds were comfortable, the showers were fantastic and the kitchen, dining area and living space were all in great condition. The hostel atmosphere was very welcoming and friendly. I would definitely recommend Itaca to everyone visiting Barcelona.

    Itaca was the first hostel that I stayed when I started my euro trip. And trust me, it was the best idea. Itaca is in perfect location, it's secluded and quiet, the vibe is so good. The staff is so friendly and help you in every details required. The lounge is so cozy. The bathrooms are clean but small. Loved the dorms as it was winter ,less people so more privacy for you. Loved the tiny balcony in the rooms and lounge area. Definitely staying here if Barcelona happens again!

    While Itaca hostel was sufficient, I did not enjoy my stay. I was only there for 1 quick night, but unfortunately my room of 8 beds smelled terribly of body odor. Unsure if this was a specific person or the room itself. The kitchen seemed minimal but I wasn’t planning on cooking. The bathroom was fine but definitely bring shower shoes and you need your own towels. There was also no hand soap so make sure you bring that as well. The bed itself was pretty comfortable. Location is very good.

    Doesn't look like photos, is much more run down. Off of main roads, but still safe location and close to main areas. No elevator. Plugs by every bed. Lots of groups who were loud and woke up whole hostel during the night. Kitchen was small and cramped if more than 1 person in it. Lockers were decent size, gave lock for it. Rooms are small and cramped. Beds all very close together, leaves no extra room. Not much security, worker occasionally asked to see my room key. But room was never locked.

Itaca Hostel says

Being a small hostel, people here get to know each other and enjoy their stay more. If they want extra activities we can work with people who organise events. As we're a small hostel we offer the personal touch, with friendly, helpful staff. We care about our guests and try to make sure they enjoy their stay here. I'd say we're ideally suited for anyone who wants a relaxing stay in a small, independent hostel. We're not a party hostel and generally don't book large groups.
The nearest main attractions to us are the cathedral (100m away) and La Rambla, which is only five minutes away. I recommend people explore the Gothic Quarter and visit the Palau de la Música, just two minutes' walk away from here.
