Visited June 2014, travelling with a friend.
Equity Point is certainly a good spot for those who are travelling. It's not too far away from Hyde Park or a tube station, so travelling round London is pretty easy. The staff were very pleasant (one of them was also Irish, which is always good!) and helpful in showing us where to go and what to do. The room we got was pretty standard (4 bed dorm, 1 bathroom), and came with clean bedsheets. Shower was a bit temperamental, but was otherwise ok. There's a decent variety of facilities within the hostel (Internet Cafe, Bar, etc.), although you'd be better off walking round the corner to buy a beer rather than paying £2.50 for a tin of Carlsberg in the hotel. The breakfast was pretty standard - cereal, toast, yoghurt, tea, coffee, juice etc. Although, I was surprised by the big bowl of boil eggs they have just sitting there. I'm a fan of such things so I had quite the eggy breakfast (yum!).
All in all, a pretty decent experience. Although we did come to discover that the hotel is pretty popular for school trips. Given that my companion and I are in our early 20s, we felt incredibly out of place amongst school children. This is not necessarily a criticism of the hotel, but a warning to those 'older' travellers who are considering staying here. Be prepared to pack your cocoa, slippers and pipe, because you're going to look old!
