- Good breakfast and you do not need to wash your dishes. - Be aware there are no kitchen facilities, not even a microwave, so unable to heat or cook own food or make you own cup of tea. - Small rooms and bathrooms. - Expensive internet. - The hostel does take families and school groups which can detract from the travelling experience. - Location alone does not justify price. - I would not stay here again for the price that is charged.

We stayed in a double room with ensuit. Without being picky, the mattress was lumpy, sheets weren't changed over our stay and the shower was literally the size of an average house sink with a soft curtain which wrapped you around completely while showering. And no free WiFi!!! On the plus side, good continental breakfast, good location and 24hr security guard. Overall ok, but wouldn't stay in a double room again due to poor value for money.

The staff did everything they could to help me, and they are great. But they have large groups here which makes for lengthy line ups for everything (checking in/out, luggage storage, breakfast, etc). The breakfast is pretty good if you can get through all the people. There's no kitchen facilities (not even a kettle, microwave, etc), and wifi is only available on a paid package. Bring a padlock for the lockers, and be prepared to eat out all the time!!

I stayed at Equity Point about 10 days when I relocated to London and used it as a handy base to orientate myself around London whilst interviewing for work. A quick stroll to Paddington tube or Lancaster Gate tube, buses close by, shops including supermarkets all very handy. Security is tight, rooms are cleaned to a high standard and breakfast included is ample. Wifi expensive and unreliable so better to go to a local café to tap in for free. For a short stay it is a good, secure place.

The room was not ready although we arrived late. We had to wait for half an hour, although they talked about ten min. When we got in, the room was soaked in air freshner, so we had to stay for another hour with wide open windows, which we did not want to leave open, because of easy access to them from the terrace. When we came back, they had been opened and left open by someone anyway - creepy. When retrieving our luggage, we were not supervised, no labels checked, could have taken anything.

It's in a nice area of town, but it's a far walk to the metro. They make you pay for wifi. I've been traveling for for months now, and I have never been to a hostel that makes you pay for wifi. That's ridiculous. Rooms are fairly clean.

Great hostel in a good area: right in front of Hyde Park! A bit labyrinthic but very clean and cheap if you consider that breakfast is included (actually something very rare to find in hostels)! Staff was really really nice! I recommend it!

Close to paddington station, direct connection to heathrow airport. underground lines and bus through paddington to other parts of London. Bed with reading light and power socket to charge your electronic devices. Wifi is not free, not indicated in info. The breakfast is sufficient: bread, yoghurt, juice. Some suggestion: include wifi cost in room price, place hooks to hang things in room, laundry room, provide info map at lobby to show nearby places and bus stops and services. Thanks!

Rooms are so small that prevents any good thing about the hostel.

The breakfast was very good and the atmosphere very great!! I love the view of London at the 6th floor in my room. I recommand this youth hotel.

the staff I encountered here were so friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and I was surprised to find a decent breakfast included even though I only stayed for one night. My only gripe with the place was that I wasn't forewarned that I'd have to buy a padlock to lock my things way for an additional cost, and that WIFI also cost more, adding an extra 1.3 of the price of the room onto the total cost. However, overall a great experience and I would recommend this place for sure!

My double room stank and was dirty. I paid in advance for 3 days online and didn't want to stay after a rotten night's sleep. Shower was ok but tiny. Better value staying in a serviced appartement for 20pounds more. The ppl at reception refused to refund me for my remaining stay, so please check room and toilet to make sure u r happy with it before paying. Wouldn't stay there again. Breakfast was horrid.

This place is pretty cool. Staff is very friendly and they are always ready to give you a hand. The rooms are clean and spacious and the bathroom is inside. Breakfast is included and is actually not bad at all. They even have cheese! Something that i really liked was the location. Is in a safe and quiet neighborhood, with tons of food options nearby and excellent transportation links, tube lines and 24 hour buses. Thumps up for Equity Point!!! Raheem, Brooklyn, USA.
