We booked a bit later so had limited options of backpackers in London. Equity point was chosen because it was available and the pictures online made the place look awesome. However, if its atmosphere you’re looking for I would go somewhere else. If you are a single traveller or looking to meet people on your travels, then this place is not for you. The only people we really saw staying were school groups. This was particularly annoying because they were noisy and very annoying at breakfast when you’re trying to reach the communal food.
I think the most annoying thing was that there is no kitchen. I have never stayed in a backpackers without a kitchen. This means not only can you NOT cook any meals but it also means you can’t even store food anywhere. This meant we had to buy all our meals and certainly increased the amount we spent in the first week in London, which was an expense we had not factored in. Backpackers trying to travel on the cheap be warned.
The rooms and bathroom were cleaned regularly. I found the staff friendly and helpful and the location is awesome. It’s about a 5 minute walk from Paddington tube and the overground gives you access to Heathrow which was really helpful for first time travellers to London.
