Patrick Bowles

18 May 2009 Patrick would recommend this property

Liked: I've been to a couple hostels now and this was the best so far. The location is amazing, within walking distance of metro stations and major sights, but what made the experience remarkable was the quality of people; both workers and visitors. The atmosphere was relaxing, respectful, and the facilities clean. I would defintely try to book a room at Itaca the next time I visit Barcelona.

Customer review

17 May 2009

Liked: Clean, friendly and a good location but the dorms are cramped and the whole place is very small so noisy. The people staying there were young so if you're older and want to meet like-minded people you might want to consider somewhere else.

Christie Bacal

30 April 2009 Christie would recommend this property

Liked: Itaca is highly recommended for young travelers like me. The atmosphere was quite homey that you cant help but be friendlier than normal (perhaps). i love it that the hostel management take the initiative to make this good dinner for a chance for everyone to meet and talk about their travels. it was an unforgettable experience. it's not always u are in one dinner table with people from all continents, right? it's also safe and clean and the location is a WINNER! I will definitely come back to Spain, and stay in Itaca when in Barcelona as long as i want. it's worth every penny.

Liked: Friendly staff, spacy rooms, lockers, new furniture, lamps for reading. Good location, just 5 minutes walk from Pl.de Catalunia. It is highly recommended to print the map before the arrival - the hostel is at a very small street, almost nobody knows it.
