Last week we were proud to inaugurate Equity Point New York Hostel. To such an important event we brought the group Castellers de Vilafranca to Manhattan. They built several Human Towers all over New York including one at our hostel at Times Square, as you can see in the video.
At the official event we heard the speeches of Artur Mas the President of Catalonia –-Equity Point Hostels homeland–; Mike Kelley, Independence Point President; and our CEO Oriol Badia.
We’ve worked really hard to have a hostel in New York in such a great location as it is Time Square. And soon we will have some more hostels all around the United States of America. Stay tuned to be the first to know where the new Equity Point Hostels will be! Continue reading →
We will officially inaugurate Equity Point New York Hostel in Times Square this June, even though it’s been opened since November. But by the end of the month it will be completely refurbished.
In the inauguration we will have the Castellers de Vilafranca (a Catalan Human Tower group) as our guests and they will perform some Human Towers in front of Equity Point New York, so everybody will be able to get there and watch them.
You can get to Equity Point New York to watch the spectacle on June 22nd at 9am. We will be waiting for you!! Continue reading →

The romantic legend of St George slaying the dragon, and presenting his adored princess with a red rose which sprang from the blood of the beast has inspired the most romantic day of the Catalan calendar, rivalling St Valentine’s Day. Gifts exchanged between sweethearts, traditionally roses, is tradition in Catalonia, where Equity Point was born.
Exchanging books is also traditional, which springs from the celebration of the deaths of distinguished authors Miguel Cervantes and Shakespeare on the 23rd of April.
Equity Point would like to share with you this day in all our hostels offering free roses to all our guests.
Marrakech is a city with winding streets where it is extremely easy to get lost. For that reason we have a really detailed map explaining with precision how to get to Equity Point Marrakech.
But even with the most perfect map, Marrakech Medina’s can be hard, but also charming, the first time you get there. For that reason we want to share a video made by one of our guests that shows the way from Djemaa-el-Fna to Equity Point Marrakech.
If you’re planning a trip to Marrakech you may take a look at this awesome video of Equity Point Marrakech. You’ll be able to appreciate the atmosphere of the hostel, the incredible building, the swimming pool, the meals, and our cooking classes!!
