"Directly on the beach!" Equity Point Sea - Hostel Barcelona Tip by Marie-Claude

Equity Point Sea - Hostel Barcelona, Barcelona: 162 reviews and 6 photos

This is a nice youth hostel to meet people. We stayed only one night of our stay because they had an internet problem with our reservation (we were only 2 to have that problem and the guy offered us to find us another hotel because it was full house a few days in that week. Finally, one of his girl friends offered a room at her house with a private bathroom and access to the kitchen for 60 euros per night in a very residential area, it was superb, we lived like barcelionians :) ).

It is a very big hostel, the rooms contain at least 6 or 8 beds. The space is pretty small, but who cares. You're in Barcelona to party or visit. The only major thing I disliked is that the airconditioning was too cold, I had to cover myself for not being sick... (Our beds were just under the vent) They have lockers to rent for you to put your stuff in safety.
The prices being pretty low, I would surely recommand this hostel. It has an easy access to the metro (10 min walk) and is ON the beach. That allows you to bring only your towel and key, so you can be safe in the water and not being stressed about being robed in the meantime. They have free internet access. Breakfast is included.

Unique Qualities: We met a lot of people at the breakfast that morning. We made friends that we still have and with whom we plan other trips.
