Perched near the sea in a rather ugly high-rise is this busy backpackers hostel. Rooms are basic, cramped and noisy (bring earplugs), but you won't find a room closer to the beach. A self-catering kitchen helps keep costs down. Note that no alcohol is allowed.
Luggage storage is offered and the Equity Point Sea has a bar and snack bar. You can enjoy breakfast at a table outside on the seafront promenade.
Barcelona’s former fishing district, Barceloneta offers the city’s best range of seafood restaurants. Many beach bars are in the immediate area and regular buses from opposite the Equity take you to the Ramblas in 10 minutes. Barceloneta Metro Station is a 10-minute walk away.
