Great location, great value! I stayed here as a solo 40 something female travelling through Spain. The location was excellent, the staff were so helpful! This is not a party hostel which is exactly what I was after. We did have a social night where the staff taught us to make sangria which we got to drink afterwards! I always...

The property is extremely well located. It is within a walkable distance from the main landmarks and well connected in terms of public transport. The rooms are large enough and the ventilation is good. Staff helpful and friendly.

Itaca is a very friendly hostel with great environment and awesome location! Its very good to go alone or with few friends since its a small hostel, cause you can meet lots of nice people and make friends. Rooms and bathroom were clean and people at reception were very nice! Loved it!

Everything excellent apart from one member of staff who was incredibly rude to me without reason. She was perhaps stressed and tired but it was unprofessional and made me feel very uncomfortable after

Close to main attractions and the metro. It's an older building so things are naturally older- but not dirty by any means. The staff is lovely- incredibly welcoming and very kind. I only stayed here one night but would do so again. Good vibes!

On the shores of Mediterranean this amazing hostel lies. Perhaps the best in central Barcelona. It us in the cathedral square, a hub of tourists and always you feel at the heart of the place. Finding Mediterranean is just a great surprise. Well and the beach the best I have ever seen! Nude topless girls everywhere! Hostel is the best....

This would have to be one of the best hostels I have stayed in. The location was good and the rooms were spacious. I was in a 6-bed dorm but had no trouble sleeping. The wifi was generally good and the staff were exceptional, Lei Lani in particular was very helpful. Having a charging point in the locker was a...

I've been here before about two years ago with my sister, so when I came back by myself I wanted somewhere safe and with a nice atmosphere. Boy was I not disappointed! Great staff, great location and wonderful service. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Barcelona ;)

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are located in the heart of the Gothic area of Barcelona, in a quiet pedestrian street next to the Cathedral square.If you stay with us, in just a few minutes walk you have all the main cultural atractions (Picasso Museum, Cathedral, Music Palace, Gaudí’s arquitecture, MACBA, CCCB, Ramblas…) the beaches, traditional tapas bars and areas to enjoy the cosmopolitan nightlife of Barcelona.We guarantee you are in the centre, where everything happens but you will have peace to sleep well!!In Itaca we don’t allow people to stay who don’t respect the right of others to rest. For those (like us!) who like to enjoy the nightlife but also the wide cultural variety our city offers, Itaca is the ideal place to stay. For those who look for getting drunk and out of control, well, we suggest that you head to one of the many ‘Party Hostels’ that exist in Barcelona!Itaca has a maximum capacity of 30 people, this allows us to have a more personal touch with you, and between you. We are able to give you the attention and help that you need to enjoy your stay with us.Our installations are spacious, clean and welcoming. All the rooms are exteriors with balconies. We have dormitories, double rooms, family rooms and apartments.US….Inspired by our travels, we opened Itaca en August 2001 with the intention of bringing together the things we liked best from other places, creating a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere. A place to socialize and rest, where you will feel free to discover our culture at your own pace. ... more   less
