A few days ago we showed you how is a typical the breakfast at Equity Point Lisboa hostel. Ongoing with the same issue, today we bring to you some pictures of Equity Point New York’s breakfast.
All the products served at the hostels are bought locally even though they may be very similar between hostels. So at Equity Point New York’s free breakfast we serve fruit cereals, café, milk, infusions, juice, butter and Jelly. We also have some products that are only available at Equity Point New York breakfast like bagels –a New York classic- and cream cheese.
You can toast your bread or bagels at all our hostels. And we also have a bagel cutter that sometimes amazes non Americans who haven’t seen one before.
Enjoy your meal!! Continue reading
For second year in a row Girona is promoting the city through Girona10, an event that sells out city hotels and hostels beds for just 10 Euros each night, Equity Point Girona included.
But Girona10 is much bigger. They’re also giving restaurant menus for just 10 Euros, so you can visit the city on a budget. There will be a huge local market with art, antiques, food… And also theater, bike routes, free entrance to museums and several other discounts.
Girona10 will take place on January 26th and 27th. We hope to see you there enjoying this amazing city!
Last year’s | Equity Point participates at Girona 10
One of Equity Point Hostel’s signatures is that we serve a basic free breakfast at all our hostels. The content of this breakfast may vary depending on the kind of food that’s available at each country and also may slightly fluctuate seasonally.
Many people ask us about what’s included at our breakfast so we’ve decided to start a series of posts with pictures of those meals. And today we will start for Equity Point Lisboa’s breakfast which includes: coffee, milk, tea, juices, cereals, bread, jam, butter, chocolate cream and fruit.
Enjoy it! Continue reading
Each year Marrakech hosts one of the world’s most important and competitive marathons and that’s because Moroccan athletes are between the best running long distances. Over 5000 athletes are expected on January 27th to run both, the marathon and the half marathon and we’d love to help them.
So we’re running a contest between the athletes, and we will award a free half an hour leg massage to the three Equity Point Marrakech guests that achieve the best marks at the marathon.
Will you run in Marrakech Marathon?
Thanksgiving is a very special day for all North Americans, a day to spend with the family and the most loved ones. But for those who must stay away from home and all the tourists at Equity Point New York, we’re preparing a special Thanksgiving Brunch for tomorrow that will be served instead of our classical breakfast.
Equity Point New York’s Thanksgiving Brunch will be made by our staff and will include spinach quiche, turkey bacon quiche, turkey sausages, eggs, homemade biscuits with honey and jam, orange juice and there will be an option to also have mimosas.
All our hostels have common areas where you can socialize and meet other travelers and locals. Equity Point New York is no different and there we have Bar Catalonia, a bar where you can have delicious sandwiches, craft beers, wines, cocktails…
At Bar Catalonia we’ve selected for our clients some local craft beers to offer a unique tasting experience. You can choose from Alphabet City Easy Blond, Defiant Brewing, Greenport Harbor and Bronx Brewery. All of them are distinctive and special and you can only find those craft beers at the New York area and surroundings.
From 1st November, tourists — local, national and foreign alike — who stay at hostels will pay € 0,72 per night in Barcelona and € 0,50 in Girona per night.
Tourist under 16 will be exempt (photocopy or National ID or passport must be provided at check in).
Tourist Tax will be only applied the first 7 nights.
Are you the kind of person who likes to build its own furniture? Do you like to recycle your old stuff to give them a second life?
The staff at Equity Point Lisbon had a great idea and turned a suitcase into a different book shelf that fits perfectly the common room of the hostel.
We have posted the pictures of all the process at Facebook so you can do it yourself at home.
I love the idea and how it fits Equity Point Lisboa’s common room decoration, don’t you?
