The location right at the beach is really nice, although you have to walk a bit to the nearest metro station. Staff was really nice and helpful. The price was a bit too much, but it was a special weekend, so hopefully the prices are not always so high. The dormitory I was staying in was otherwise ok, with ensuite bathroom, but the walls were open from the top, so you could hear the noice from other rooms like they were in the same room. And there was a lot of noice coming from people partying.

Very dirty rooms, poor facilities, it's better to sleep with the grass free of charge and have a towel as well

Location is everything here! Literally right on the beach. Only downsides were a kind of weird atmosphere, and extremely hot rooms. They didn't really give any recommendations or anything, and they kick you out of the common area at 11pm, which is kind of a bummer. However, the beach is right in front of you, and several supermarkets on the street.

Great helpful staff and perfect location on the beach. Only thing I can complain about is the room have very bad noise bleed. Otherwise great!

No atmosphere. Beds are fairly uncomfortable. Push button showers. It's a big chain hostel, fine if you are a group or have friends in Barcelona but not great if you're a solo traveler. Location is great if you came for the beach but it's a solid 15 minute walk to the closest metro station. Staff is helpful with how to get to places on the bus though.

Extremely hot in the rooms, made it difficult to sleep at night. The luggage storage was awesome and very helpful

I had originally booked 3 nights here, yet I attempted to cancel the last two by email before arrival. I looked up the email address to do so, and accidentally sent my request to one of the other equity points in another city. When I arrived, the gentlemen on working at the desk continued to yell over me as I attempted to explain the confusion. In the end I had to pay for two nights. The rooms were incredibly small, filled with sand, and way too hot and humid. Worst place I've stayed in Europe.

The location is excellent, right on the beach. The rooms are cramped but not uncomfortable. There isn't really an area to hang out so it is difficult to meet new people. The atmosphere is nice but there isn't as much of a sense of community as other hostels.

The environment is super friendly and fun. Each bed comes with a massive locker for free. The location is perfect. However, the kitchen was really pathetic and needs some work.

It was conveniently located. Most of the staff were absolutely lovely but one person was extremely unhelpful and required my friend to go all the way to an atm to pay a 5 euro key deposit before checking in.

One of the receptionists wasn't really simpatic.

We needed a place to stay for twelve hours and this was great. It was two minutes from the beach, two minutes from great food and fifteen from the clubs. We stayed in a six person mixed dorm and it was very cramped and not very clean. I dont think we would have been comfortable there for many nights but for 12 hours it was fine. The bathroom in our room was surprisingly clean and looked new.

The location is great, very near the beach and transportation. The room was very tight for the amount of beds, there wasn't enough energy plugs. There was only one bathroom inside the room for nine people.

The staff was TERRIBLE, specially the lady who works during the day. she was rude, answering questions like she was doing a favour to us. come on, its your job and you earn for it, please do it properly. people dealing with tourists should be kind and smile, because we are bringing money and jobs to your economy, which is in a bad crisis by the way.

BEST location, I loved eating breakfast and just looking out the window at the beach and the funky characters. The security could be a bit tighter and there were no blankets, a blanket would've been nice. Bathrooms were pretty clean, everything is just a bit crowded. But you can't beat being just off Barceloneta for $16 a night!

You really can't beat the location! It's so close to the beach and for such a good price!

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.

Very Helpful And friendly staff. One thing bad was the noise. You can hear all the other guests in the next room because the walls don't actually go to the ceiling

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.
