My friend and I stayed in the two bedroom apartment (monec) affiliated with the Hostel. It is about 2 mins walk from the main Hostel. The apartment was great. It had a washing machine as well which was handy. We didnt have much do to with the hostel, but the staff were helpful if we had any questions. There is no wifi at the apartment but you can just use the computers at the hostel.
The biggest negative about this place is actually the location. Although it is very central we found walking the little dingy streets at night to be a bit scary (that is being two blonde girls). The Hostel is in a better spot as there is more happening around there.
I guess this is more Barcelona itself then the Hostel though. It was good staying in the "Gothic Area", but next time I would stay around Gracie Avenue. It was a much nicer spot or even in the El Born area.
- 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.
