Liked: The hostel is very strategically located, so many of the sights in Barcelona are easily within reach (by walking or a few metro stops away). The rooms and bathroom are also clean. The breakfast served by the hostel is fairly generous too, as they have described on the Hostelbookers website. I really liked the fact that they serve their coffee from the espresso machine (free of charge). A great perk-me-up! The hostel is also very secure as travellers are asked to show the card issued by the hostel before allowing to go up to the rooms. The hostel also observes the "No drinking" regulation quite strictly, which was good for me since drinking in the hostel might create a din and disturb other travellers. The staff on duty at the common room came up to a group of travelers with alcohol on the table to warn them of the regulation and took back the common room's glasses to prevent them from drinking in the hostel. The staff in general are very helpful. When there were issues such as my lock jamming up, and forgetting to bring my room key out of my room when I went to the common area, the staff was always willing to help.

Disliked: There were very little toilets in the hostel. My floor only had one male and one female toilet for about 12 rooms (my rooom alone had 10 beds). This wasn't a big issue for me because I think the hostel was fairly empty at that point in time since it was winter. I didn't have to wait for the toilets at all. However, this might be an issue when there is higher occupancy in the hostel such as during summer or easter. The wifi access was limited only to the common area which is open from 8 am to 4am. It would have been great if the wifi access was extended to the rooms as well or if it was possible to access wifi outside the common area even after 4am. While there were ample plugs in the room, they were all concentrated in one corner of the room, making it difficult to use and charge electrical devices simultaneously if you don't stay at the bed next to the plug. Notwithstanding all these, I think it was value-for-money! :).

Liked: I liked the building and the location. Breakfasts are very good, too, for the price. You can help yourself to toast, butter and jam

Disliked: The rooms are spacious but there was no chair to leave your things on. Also the showers were fixed on the wall and since the shower booth was very small there was no scape from the cold water that came out at the beginning of the shower. This could be sorted out by having "telephone" showers

Liked: Staff was friendly, bar was OK, you might have to walk a bit to reach the nightlife spot, but main touristic sights are easy to reach, since Passeig de Gracia station is right at the door of the hostel. The ramblas and the Gothic are only a 10-min walk.

Disliked: Pedro left no negative feedback.

Liked: Good location, nice staff, AC in the room.

Disliked: They only provided the linens, not the blankets, we could rent one for 2 euro. There was no mop on the bathroom, so the floor would get soaking, slippery and kind of dirty after every shower.

Liked: Location is SO central to everything. Metro is right there. But the Greatest thing is the breakfast. It is a large breakfast and the incredible thing is coffee is made to order. Where the hell do you find that? No other place has made to order espresso, cappucino or cafe with milk. They even have a bar at night and I was fortunate to see a band play in the hostel during my stay. Outrageous and Incredible.

Liked: Very good hostel, if you're with friends. If you're alone, I dont recommend it,because it's too big, and will be difficult to meet people. It's very near to the gothic center, and you can walk to te beach (4o min) and to the most interesting things of Barcelona. The metro it's just outside of the hostel. Breakfast included, good! Bathrooms are clean every minute, that good!

Disliked: You have to pay for the top sheet. Wifi dosnt work well in all the rooms, depends on the floor.

Disliked: We had reserved a twin with ensuite and was given bunk beds. Beds have rungs on the frame which prevents a tall person being comfortable. Incredibly, the bed springs produce a very loud groaning sound every time you turn over.

Liked: Have stayed at Equity Point twice now. The hostel feels safe, is always clean & has a good atmosphere. Great place to meet like minded travellers.

Disliked: Is a fair hike from the beach. About a 30-40 min (depending on hang over). But only about 5 euro in a cab, so cant complain!

Liked: Great location and right next to a metro station so really easy to get around. The terrace bar was pretty good for a chilled beer or two and the other common room was a good place to meet `people before going out.

Disliked: The night staff were not the most helpful people in the world, also not being able to drink your own alcohol in the common areas was pretty annoying as it was just a ploy to make you spend more money at their bars.

Liked: The location was excellent. I read a lot of reviews for different places in the area, and I'm really glad I picked the one I did. The security was really nice, everyone had their own key-card, so I felt very comfortable leaving things in the room. The breakfast was quite good, with really strong coffee- which was excellent

Disliked: Not a big deal, but they charge for a top sheet, and the rooms do get quite cold during the night.
