Equity Point Sea - Hostel Barcelona

Nice and pleasant location since next to the beach, 15-20 mins to Gothic and Las Ramblas by walk.
Very welcoming and helpful staff (got a problem with my flight booking... and the hostel staff let me use their phone for free, beside giving advice).
Dorm rooms are an appropriate size (8-bed) though the fact the bathroom makes it a bit noisy should you want to have a late wake-up.
Best value for price according to what I've seen here and there. Book early !

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this hostel. Right next to the beach and short walk to the clubs and about 20min walk to las ramblas or barrio gotico. For three girls that needed a place to sleep as was busy the whole week highly recommend.shared the room with some really cool girls that will definately keep in touch with . Only issue is that if your a bit grumpy and don't like noise this is not the place for you ..for us this was a great place. Not to mention the staff so cool. Big shout out to kelvin !!!

Relatively clean hostel with fine location. Kinda loud and an older building are partially offset by the excellent beachfront location. Sketchy to get to at night but very helpful staff. I wouldn't stay here again but a good hostel for a trip of three college guys

This hostel had very good security systems and you could only get into the rooms if you showed a pass they gave you. The rooms had lockers inside so you could lock your bags up but you had to purchase or have a lock. The rooms were a bit tight and small but they did the job. The location was extra close to the beach which was very convenient and it was attached to a restaurant where we also got free continental breakfast. The only complaint is the room size and they had the air conditioning on full blast all night so you were freezing! I was there in the summer, the hottest time of the year and was freezing during the night still. Overall it was an amazing location and hostel.

it is right on the beach, which even in winter is awesome! so beautiful and really close to heaps of restaurants, bars, the Picasso museum and shops. the staff are really friendly an are willing to help out and give advice. we lucked out with an awesome dorm of 6 people who we became good mates with and hung out with. also the way the dorm is set out is rad. you get ur own cubicle with a powerpoint and a light and there is a huge locker for each person in the room. wee bit noisy but very bearable and so worth it. the free breakfast is SO good. muffins, toast, crackers, teas coffee hot chocolate fruit and cereal! my favourite hostel so far and I've been travelling for a month. definitely recommend it to anyone.

Literally steps away from the beach. If you've never been to a Barcelona beach be prepaired for haggling for everything under the sun. Rooms are cool and have private bathrooms which is awesome. Only stayed for 1 night but would have stayed more.

Room Tip: If you are scared of hieghts be sure to request you do not get the bed on top of the bathroom.
