Its central position, the friendly staff, the new facilities and of course its prices made me like this hostel very much. Nothing extremely negative. Even though I was there during the Halloween and there was a noisy environment for two days, it's a youth hostel! So I still was satisfied. I totally suggest it!

Upon arrival, we were all handed bedding which included 1 sheet, no covers. 14beds per room, the top bunks were extremely high and not sturdy. Later on as we were in town for dinner, our lockers were broken into by a student who checked in at that time.all of our cash and cards were stolen plus more. The staff was... More

I stayed at this hostel for three nights with a friend, and overall we had a good experience. The location could not be more perfect: right in the Gothic Quarter, a few minutes walk from Las Ramblas, close to tons of good restaurants and bars. Only downside was the staff were not overly friendly and seemed to frown upon large... More

I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights with a friend in an 18 bed room, which at first seemed a bit scary but actually turned out to be a good way to meet people. The best thing about this hostel is its amazing location right in the heart of the city which makes getting around very easy. It was... More

I stayed here only for one night, and came back late at night and left early in the morning so although I did not get the chance to see the hostel itself, its central location is a big plus. Definitely would stay there again.

The hostel is perfect for a couple of nights in the centre of Barcelona. We spent time on the roof terrace whenever we were all walked out (nice for a couple of beers in the evening before heading out). Only downside would be the top bunks in the dormitory room, I was put in one the first night I arrived... More

I stayed at Equity Point Gothic for 3 nights and it has been a pleasure. The hostel was clean, quiet after midnight (except for the very loud car-noises from the street) and I felt very safe (which was very important considering the fact that i was travelling alone). The hostel provides Wifi and computers with internet, a kitchen, clean showers... More

The hostel location is great, very close to the Cathedral and aside a metro stop. The location is also packed with small restaurants and markets. Staff is very kind and helpful. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm. Must take care because it seems to be aside the common area, which is very noisy in the morning. The rooms lockers... More

The location of the hostel is great. Everything relevant for sightseeing is within walking distance. Furthermore the price is okay for students but for the service way too high. When I got there I didn't have a lock with me, so I had to buy one (this should have been mentioned when I made the reservation!!) There was also an... More

The hostel was in a great location for all our activities in the city. However, there were too many annoyances that made our stay less than enjoyable. For starters, the wifi is very suspect, which is a problem for people who rely on that heavily in order to communicate. Also the wooden floors make a ton of noise, which is... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
