Well.. Room is like a cage and everywhere was dirty street is more clean than this hostel.. No one cares about happiness of guest. Housekeeper can shout to you if you want clean sheets dont be suprised about it. Nothing is positive about this place


Good kitchen and commons area, helpful staff. The rooms weren't so great, nor very comfortable. I'm sure you could find a better place for cheaper


The place is really big, so unless you have good roommates it will be more difficult to meet people. The wifi doesn't work in the rooms unless you pay for the "premium" wifi for 3 euros. The rooms and common area were clean.


Great hostel, really well located. Lockers, charger and lights for every bed. The hostel is really big so there are a lot of people to meet. It has an amazing breakfast for like 2€. It is super clean and it has air conditionate in the rooms. I want in the middle of august and price was perfect for its value and location. I would definitvely come back.


Very good location to everywhere either beach or mountain or shops. Wifi only accessed at common area which is not so convenience. Staffs are friendly(most of them), security is quite good but keycard sometimes doesn't work so good. I was locked out side of my room couple times.


I stayed at this hostel because I was joining a Topdeck tour the next day. I had a very late arrival (2am!) and the staff were very helpful to get me the information I needed quickly so I could get some sleep.


I was alone and met lots of cool people so it was a fun stay! Its a huge hostel so it has that advantage. Rooms were good with the private bathroom. The staff were helpful but takes a while to check in if there are lots arriving at check in time. Would stay here again on my next trip to Barcelona!


well, in the common room at second floor people were more interested in have a connection to the internet than to other human beings (no, it's not due to me), while at the roof floor the atmosphere was much better. Kitchen is well furnished and the breakfast very cheap (as well as tasteless...) The position justifies the price.

The hostal is in a great location and the staff were awesome. The kitchen is TINY for how many people are at the hostal and it was always pretty messy. Morning and late night were the only times it was really clean. Never any paper towels in the bathrooms and many times no soap for washing hands. Love the bars. Love the roof.


Nice but the common areas were separated so it out a divide in the people who were staying. Everything was comfortable except there wasn't individual powerpoints in the big rooms, no big deal but it makes a difference. Worthwhile stay overall.


When we first arrived, it was noon, we were unable to check-in right away; not a great start since we were never told a check in time.Fortunately they had this "luggage room" where you could drop off your bags and valuables in this half-secure room where it was free-for-all for anyone to come in and take as they please.A girl even came down the stairs in a panic claiming she was robbed.I was nervous about my belongings the entire stay, atmosphere was meh, and the staff/operators were unorganized

The location was ok, not in the old district but about a 10min walk. There is a gothic hostel option though. Just a bit more expensive. The hostel was mostly clean, sans bathroom (lots of sand, hair and condoms)


Staff pretty unhelpful, could be rude at times and very unhelpful with directions


I've nothing cool to say about this place, may be because it was more of a hotel. Pretty commercial, no personalized touch. It wins in terms of location - right next to the Casa Batllo, Passaige De Gracia Metro station, walking distance from Placa de catalunya. Very good connectivity dues to popular metro station. The free walking tour starts from the hostel at 10:15 am everyday. Breakfast for €1.50, you buy vouchers to access the internet on computer terminals €0.50/30mins.


The only reason to stay here is because it is cheap and in the centre of Barcelona. Expect dirty bathrooms, smelly rooms and rude staff (even the cleaners who clean the bathrooms in peak morning hours and don't let you in). This hostel is huge and no social vibe. Food was stolen from fridge, extra charges for wifi in room and have to pay for breakfast. Horrible bed. There were only two female showers on our floor and one didn't drain. This is shared with at least 10+ rooms some with 12 beds.


it was so comfortable. the rooms are always clean. people were amazing too.


Terrible customer service when checking in and extra fees made this an overpriced and unhappy stay. For a 40 plus euro a night hostel, Equity Point was far below average. The only redeeming quality was the location of the hostel. Otherwise, our experience was quite frustrating at this hostel. There was no wifi in room as advertised and we received a lot of attitude when our check-in host explained why not all be able to pay with a credit card. Our experience at Casa Gracia was many times better.

I only stayed one night as I needed to stay in Barcelona for a short time just to get to another place, but the hostel was fantastic! I will definitely stay here when I come back!


Great hostel with good atmosphere, quite a mix of people but the hostel is huge so understandable Very good price


Right in the middle of Barcelona which is super convenient. Bathrooms were kind of messy but overall clean. Lockers in the dorms for each person. Different floors weren't that secure even with the key cards because doors were left open. Luggage room locks but people are in and out of it so often that it's basically on a trust basis. Wasn't there much but bar area seemed cool as well as the terrace, lots of people to meet. Staff was friendly and helpful but very busy.
