It is pretty far from all the major things in the city center but it is literally right on the beach! All the rooms are somewhat connected so you can hear everyone from the rooms on either side of you!


First Location of the hostel great, the beach, but mostly for summer and under good weather conditions, except that it is far far away from the city center and metro station is also far. Staffs are not very helpfull and giving mostly wrong info about city\around, so trust google not staffs. Also staffs can be sometimes rude and cruel so please keep your expectations very low. Rooms is said to be 7 to 9 bed but all the rooms ara connected without windows so it made the palce 36 bed, painfull.


Some really awful roommates ruined my experience here (yelling at 4 am) and the staff did little to stop it. The guy at the desk came upstairs once to tell them to be quiet but they kept yelling and nothing happened. To make matters worse, the walls between rooms aren't full (there's a space by the ceiling) so every other room heard the yelling as well. Other than that it is a great hostel. Amazing location on the beach, cheap for Barcelona, decent showers, no complaints about the hostel itself


Good value for money. The room were alright, however it was easy to hear others from the other rooms due to the open ceiling. There was also only one bathroom per room so with 7 in a room it was difficult to organize who had the bathroom at what time. However, it is right next to the ocean and is a perfect vacation hostel.


Best location you can get in my opinion beach is 50meters away and right by one one of the best clubs in the world. Tons of places to eat right around the corner and plenty of bike, scooters , surfboard rentals around.


This location was great! Being next to the beach was absolutely great. The staff is nice can't really complain, just make you keep your card that has you name and room number on it bc you need it to get in for security reasons. Lite breakfast is served and there is also a restaurant/cafe that serves meals as well. Great experience overall and the location is 10 plus stars!


We really enjoyed our stay at the Equity Point Sea hostel, it's the most convenient location - right at the beach!, the city sightseeings are easily reachable by public transport or by walking. The personnel were nice and professional. Here are some things that we'd like to mention: 1) For the mixed dorm bathrooms, how about some hooks on the walls? 2) Padlocks should be available for RENT 3) Sheets are good, but blankets won't hurt too 4) Breakfast included - loved it!

I had an amazing time! I met a lot of people. And being so close to bars and the beach is really cool! I would definitely come back.


Right on the beach. Nice staff except the overnight guy was very rude and refused to call us a cab. Basic hostel. However the 'rooms' are divided by thin walls with bunk beds on either side. So you hear everything that's going on in the other rooms. Loud drinking and music until 1am makes it hard to sleep. And being waken up at 3am because of the squeaky bed of drunk kids fooling around.


This is a relatively new hostel right on the seafront. It is very clean, quiet and comfortable with a really good breakfast included in the price and good beds and showers. The staff are very helpful and there is also free internet. The only problem that I had was the difficulty in finding the hostel as the directions given were very vague and people in the area did not know where it was even though it was located in a tall brightly painted building.
