Many times I've been asked by VT's members to tell them about cheap accommodation and never knew what to say cause I don't know any personally. I've been looking information and I've found this one that seems ok: good location (near the cathedral), transports near, looks good and not expensive.
So if anyone ever tries it I'd like that writes to me later and tell me about his/her experience in this place (good, bad...) so in the future I can or can't reccommend it to other people. Thanks. You can have a look at it in the web below.

I have never stayed here, but I passed by it one day and the reception area looked very nice, so I went in to pick up a folder for future reference ...
It is extremely well located and since it's a hostel, I guess the price will be quite okay too.
I am definitely going to try this one out one day!!

I was in Barcelona last summer, and I stayed at Itaca Hostel. It`s very well located, and very clean, nice and very cosy.
Hostels in Barcelona are quite expensive, compared to other cities, but this one is relatively inexpensive.
Their website is www.itacahostel.com
Wish you a good time in Barcelona :)
p.s. It`s funny, we have the same birthday :)
