    Great location right by the cathedral, the dorms are all nice with good secure storage lockers, and everything is nice and clean. Met some great people staying there- the staff and volunteers were all absolutely lovely ☺️ Really friendly vibes but also not very loud there if you want an early night. Also only half an hour walk to the beach 👌🏼 Will definitely stay here again next time I’m in Barcelona!

    the best hostel ever. the only bad thing about this hostel is it has ruined other hostels for me by creating an impossibly high standard to live up to.

    fantastic location and extremely social hostel, but if you’re traveling during the summer be warned that there is no a/c and it can be quite warm in the dorms

    This hostel is EXCEPTIONALLY good. The staff are wonderful, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the atmosphere is amazing. I made about 20 friends and I was only there for 3 nights. The Wi-Fi wasn't working while I was there but I had so much fun with the staff and guests that I forgot to use the internet anyway. The facilities are also more than adequate and the location is excellent. If I return to Barcelona I will definitely stay here again, and I will recommend it to friends.

    Very Good

    This hostel has a great location, especially if you like to explore cities by foot. It also was quite difficult to get into without having the proper keys, which from my perspective is a plus (a lot of hostels can have so-so security. The rooms were good with full-sized lockers to fit your carry-on-sized bag as well as a smaller cubby on top for toiletries. At night it was a bit loud, and the bathrooms were a little underkept (no paper towels or air dryer to dry your hands after washing).

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.
