The room was small and the bathroom even smaller! Not very comfortable.


Had a decent stay at this hostel. The price was good, and included breakfast, which was good but there's no free wifi, which as a traveller I think is vital. There were lockers in the room, as well as a bathroom. The location is awesome! Very close to Paddington underground station. In my opinion, not the friendliest staff...didn't really make me feel welcome, but it wouldn't be a problem if you were travelling with people.


Considering that London is a big and very busy city, it's hard to find an excellent hostel for really cheap price. This one is worth it's value. Could be a bit cleaner. Breakfast was nice and ample, included in the price.


For the money I payed I was satisfied. bathrooms and toilets were kept clean. bedsheets could have been cleaner. The room with eight people plus large luggage was rather cramped, there ought to me more space for large suitcases. The beds were ok, except for the fact that whenever one person in the four joint beds moved all others felt it.

Fine place. Friendliest staff I've come across. Having to pay for wifi is kind of stupid though. It really feels like you are nickel and diming your guests, really, just make it free. Comfy beds. nice free breakfast. Would sleep there again.


Great hostel in a great location. Good value for money and really friendly staff.

Very nice place, ideally located near Paddington station


So this is probably a big misunderstanding but basically a guy was sleeping in our room that hadn't booked in. He was sleeping on a top bunk in full garb minus boots.at 6pm. Around 10:45 pm he awoke abruptly, put on his boots and left the room. At 11:30pm two spanish males came into the room where the only 2 vacant beds were the one where this man had been sleeping and below him. They checked with reception and came back to inform me if we saw the guy who was in the top bunk to tell security.


There is no free wifi that made me inconvenient.


It's a good hostel in London with good location, quite close to underground station. However, the plugs for charging your devices are not enough. If you have several devices need to charge, it would become a challenge for you. Otherwise, there is no curtain with each bed. It means less privacy you can have while you lay on your bed. If you travel with a group of friends, Equity Point London would be a good choose for you. If you prefect travel along, maybe you need to think twice in advance. :)

Compairing this hostel to the others it was one of the unfriendliest. The breakfast was good and the room(8person dorm). Why no free wifi, wierd? The staff was friendly, thanks!


breakfast is terrible but considering it is free, then, better than nothing.


The rooms are really small! but the commom area, wth board games is very nice! Not very close to th subway!


There is a poor space in the room. Hard to share with seven other people. I didn't get it the shower register, water changed the temperature constantly. Too hot then too cold.


The location and staff was great!! Room was not cold!!! I would like to stay here again!!
