The hostel was in an amazing location, right on the beach, and was only a short distance from night life. Tourist attractions were about 10 minute train ride away, and got directions from the front desk whenever we needed them.

Equity Point Sea was in the best location...right next to the beach! The staff was friendly and the security was great! The only bad thing was that the cleaning people didn't sweep the floor very well. Since we were on the beach, there was tons of sand on the floor that wasn't swept up and we had no access to a broom. Also, the walls did not go to the ceiling, so you could hear the very noisy people in the other rooms come in late. Other than that, our stay was incredible!

This place was exactly what we needed. It was right on the beach, clean rooms, free breakfast, and free printing of boarding passes. Meet great people there too.

This hostel has the best location to get into the beach! But there is no blanket for free, you have to bring your own or rent for the blanket

I stayed there just for 1 night but I really liked. So near from the beach, very nice organization and frindly staff. Just one thingh that I didn´t like is to do the checkout at 10am. But the value for money was excellent!

This hostel is about a 7min walk to the barceloneta underground and about 20min walk to Las Ramblas. There are plenty of restaurants,shops and stores near,what makes the place really safe,even at night. Although there are somethings they Can improve: the atmosphere between the guests is bad (There isn't a commun lounge) and my bed was on top of a huge stair,and I didn't apreciate that. The hostel is good and breakfast is also good. Would definitely stay again,as the staff was really helpful.

BYOB--bring your own blanket. They only give you a sheet. Other than that, it was one of the best hostels I've stayed at, especially for the price. The location is unbeatable; literally 10 steps to the sand.

Very good location, some people working are a little bit burn out because they have been working for ages there and have negative karmic vibrations caused by ignorance (only 2 persons), but most of the people working there are very nice and friendly.

It was a good value for what you pay for it. Great location right on the beach. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. My only complaint would be that you could hear the conversations from all the other rooms, but that is to be expected in a hostel. Overall, not a bad place to stay.

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!

The location and staff were absolutely amazing! Made the stay memorable and worthwhile. Will most definitely recommend this to anyone who loves living or staying by the beach.

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!
