Pretty great hostel, conveniently located close to everything you would want to see in Barcelona...besides the beach but for that it's just a metro ride away. Was very clean, the staff helped you out, very lively, there's no wifi in the room unless you pay for it but it wasn't that bad. Overall very good stay!

Overall we had a really good stay here, perfect location, lockers were safe and the roof terrace was really nice. What we found a bit annoying was that in a 12 person room there was only one charging point towards the door which only had 6 plug holes. Other than that it was really great!

wouldn't let my friends in. their common area was on roof which was hot. nobody in other common area on 6th floor. needed it at bottom.

The shower in the rooms en suites was very poor - the shower needs to be a bit bigger and the water pressure needs to be harder and they also need to go for just a lite bit longer. I think the locks should be offered to each person included in the price - not have to pay extra. And the roof top bar people should be aloud to put tables together so that you can sit more then 4 people at a table - especially when your in a hostel and meeting new people all the time. The waiter was very rude sackhim

This hostel is ridiculously expensive, with you getting very little apart from being in an expensive area where little is going on. You cannot bring friends into the hostel even to the bar, and there is a fine for drinking alcohol in this hostel !! I could have had a better and cheaper time in a hotel. Don't bother

Overall this is a great hostel, no denying the great location, 10 feet from the metro that takes you anywhere you want to go and 10mins walk from Las Rambla street. We had a great stay and even extended it another night because we loved the place. Only complaint is the rude, arrogant guy at the front desk (long hair, rocker guy). He told me had been working here for 6 years and i think it's 6 years to long...

The hostel was a bit large for me, and it created an atmosphere that was very different than I was looking for. Many of the people staying there were "too cool", and the second floor "bar" is awkward. The terrace and reading area on the 7th floors all close very early, and it's often impossible to find a quiet space. Depends what you're looking for!

The hostel was clean and had a high level of security. One of the staff members was really rude and unhelpful (the buff guy with the tattoos). You also have to pay for a padlock and there's 1€ surcharge per night if you pay with credit card. This is especially annoying because the hostel is already quite pricey. The beds were very uncomfortable too, but clean and the rooms were spacious with airconditioning. Also full of australians on contiki tours haha

Stayed here one night. Huge hostel (multiple floors), almost hotel-like. Bedrooms are spacious and clean. Lockers available. More bathrooms in the hallways which makes showering easier. Only downside would be the weak wifi connection and that the large size of the hostel makes it a little harder to meet people besides your roommates!

My stay here was good overall. The location is unreal and the facilities are very nice. However, it is a very large hostel and has a very corporate feel to it - 7 floors of rooms, you have to pay for WiFi in the rooms, and really lacks personality. If you prefer more comfortable spaces or smaller hostels, this is not the best place to stay.

In general a very good large hostel, in a great location. Superb terrace, good cheap breakfast, nice people working there. Only issue was that on the 5th floor the bathroom wasn't clean, smelled, and only one toilet was in use. Perhaps on other floors this isn't the case. Ideally they would add a few extra showers and toilets, but other than that it really is a good hostel. I'd recommend it, but perhaps ask not to stay on the 5th floor until they revamp that a bit. Recommended!

We were badly treated by the host as we arrived. Bad attitide of the guy and then from the girl. We went outside to wak around the city. When i came back my bed was ised and has things from another person there. They made me a new bed bit it didnt feel ok. Even though we had already payed our stay we left to another hostel. I asked to the girl in the counter to cancel my reservation for the 28th june and she said she couldnt. I just preffered to leave. Not a good experience at all.

If Alexander the Great had started off conquering central Asia in 323 BC by having his mechanical engineers install such a flawless world class central air conditioning system, the same that makes such a brilliant night of sleep always possible at Equity Point Centric, at the end of each days horse ride through to Delhi the world would now be 20 times more prosperous, and Alexander the Great would probably have lived much longer.

Nice hostel really close to la rambla and a major train staition. Two showers between a whole floor of 8 person dorms can get a little busy in the morning but otherwise the facilities are good and clean. I understand they have a bar but the only allowed to drink with dinner rule is pretty pathetic. If the bar had more options and a better tap beer it would be fine. Enjoyable stay though!

12 Bed dorm had 2 more extra beds. No reading lights or charging points near the bed. Too many people and stuff lying everywhere. Wifi signal problems on upper floors. Location is the only plus point.
