Equity Point New Location

Equity Point – Girona

As many of you will already know, a new Equity Point location has been open in the city of Girona since last July.  The building in which the hostel is situated has been completely renovated to offer maximum comfort for our guests, and features spacious common areas, a guest kitchen, a bar, and a magnificent rooftop terrace with views  over the river and Girona’s  famous historic centre.
Girona is the main destination for Ryanair in Catalunya, so, if your flight arrives very late or leaves early in the morning we invite you to enjoy our facilities and take advantage to get to know the city of Girona.
Girona, or Gerunda in Roman times, was invaded by the Moors 797 BC, and maintains one of the most important  Jewish Quarters  in all of Europe.  Girona is only one half hour by train to Figueras, which features the main Dali Museum, and also a half hour bus trip to any of the Costa Brava’s  beaches.  It is difficult to imagine a better geographical for a city than Girona.
We invite you to come and see it for yourself!
