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.

We were a group o greek people ready to enjoy Barcelona. Then covid struck! we had to postopone the whole trip. More than a year later the staff allowed us to use our reservation then instead,.Great start! After arriving we were greeted in the best possible way, the staff was very friendly and informative the hostel was in supreme condition, clean an ready to enjoy. We were amazed. We met people we are still in touch with and created unforgetable momories. The hostel was giving an incredible sense of community and unity, and we gladly say it paved the way for one of the best vacations we have had and reminding us of why we love to travel. Undoubtly recommended!

Clean hostel with quiet rooms. Nonetheless it's a very social hostel and it's a great place to meet people,thanks to their living room and activities. Staff was very friendly and helpful too, especially Coline, who even made popcorn for us while we were watching a movie.

Itaca Hostel is the ideal hostel - clean, good security, helpful staff. People who want to go out and party, but quiet rooms for those who want to get some rest. Highly recommend and will be staying here again!

The place was clean, the staff were all very friendly and helpful. There are activities every night (or many nights, at least) like bar crawls and wine mixer or movie nights! In a beautiful neighborhood with many cute bakeries nearby. Can't beat the price. I'll stay there again next time I'm in the city

I enjoyed my stay at Ithaca hostel. The beds were fine, the locker was spacious and the bathrooms were clean. I brought flip flops/shower shoes like I always do for shared living spaces and i felt very clean. The location is really great, in walking distance to popular old town, directly across from La Lonja world heritage site, and 3 minute walk from the Mercado Central. Lots to eat, drink and see around the area. The people in the hostel were mainly young, in their 20s, early 30s, and friendly. some of us went out to a bar one night which was great to meet people as a solo traveler. I felt safe and welcome at Itaca!

Very decent hostel qt the heart of the gothic quarter in central Barcelona. Pros -Very central -Outstanding friendly staff, very helpful -Plugs everywhere plus assigned key for lockers -Very good price -printing facilities super cheap Cons -Breakfast a bit pricey for the offer -bathrooms ok but not amazing, minimum privacy -some noise overnight due to thin walls and I guess the drainage -they don’t give away keys to go in and out, so one has sometimes to ring and wait for quite a while for some one to come in Nothing terrible though, I may pop over again the next time I’m in barcelona. Thank you!
