    I could go on forever about how much I enjoyed this hostel! The atmosphere, the staff and the comfort of this place was perfect. There is so much to do in the area, and being in the gothic neighbourhood you can explore for hours. I would 100000% come back here. As a solo traveller, I met people right away - that always makes the experience that much better.

    This was one of the best hostels I have stayed in. All the staff cleans whenever they see something, floors were clean and mopped, and bathrooms were clean. The hostel staff and atmosphere really made the hostel though. Within 20 minutes of being at the hostel all the staff had already introduced themselves. The common areas the residents partied with the staff living in the hostel and then they made sure everything was clean even off duty. Great atmosphere and a lot of fun.

    Most friendly and helpful staff I've ever encountered, facilities were always clean, fellow travelers were very polite and social! Someone commented that the only bad thing about this hostel is that it sets up an incredibly high bar and expectations for other hostels; agreed!

    The staff was very friendly. The common areas are really comfy and it's easy to get into a conversation with the other guests when using the common areas. The beds are a bit squeaky, but I could sleep well nonetheless.

    The best thing about the hostel was the location and the volunteers. Rodrigo and Delfi were amazing and kept the atmosphere fun even though the pub crawls were not happening. The place was clean and friendly.

    clean, good location, felt safe (as a solo female backpacker). not hugely atmospheric or sociable but I guess this is due to covid and being winter season. would still recommend!

    Staff were able to check me in after reception hours which was really great. Though I got a rushed introduction to the hostel. Staff were cold and not welcoming after that. The atmosphere here is horrid despite staying at this hostel bc of a recommendation. Groups were loud after quiet hours and no staff bothered to care. There were no organized activities making it hard to navigate the stale atmosphere of the hostel. Only redeeming qualities are the facilities and location.

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.
