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.


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.

    Great location, perfect for my short stay. No AC made it tough for a hot night since my bunk was furthest from the window, but was overall a positive experience.

    Staff were lovely, atmosphere was great and common area was really good. Location was great also. Bathroom facilities and beds were adequate but not great. The worst thing was probably NO AIR CONDITIONING which made it very hard to sleep. We were there in peak summer though. Would definitely return.

    This hostel has a great vibe and is in a great location. However the room was SO HOT. The only place in the hostel with air conditioning is reception and the ceiling fans in our room barely worked. Everyone in the room slept in their underwear with both doors wide open and I still woke up sweating. The hostel needs to figure out a better solution for the heat. To me it's not ok to charge people to sleep in a room that's just as hot as the outside summer temperatures.

    Very clean and well decorated hostel. However, there is no AC, so we had to leave the doors to the outside balcony open in order for air circulation. The street below was extremely loud, and I could not fall asleep until 4:00. Also, coffee and tea were supposed to be provided, but the pitchers were always empty. If you are looking for a party hostel, this is not the place to go. Lots of older guests. No atmosphere in the common area, which is locked up at midnight for “security reasons.”

    The hostel doesnt have a bar, it has a small fridge from which there sell small tins of beer. I also found there is not much atmospherein the hostel. Basic room which were hot and stuff at night. Security was a pain, had to wait several minutes utside the hostel to be buzzed in, since noone was in reception. Most of the staff were friendly, some were quite rude. Also had to pay for luggage storage. Personally wouldnt stay again as it wasnt worth the money.

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.
