“friendly, helpful staff & good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

This is a cute hotel located in a quiet neighborhood of London, but within walking distance to Paddington Station and Hyde Park. The staff are very friendly who are always joking and laughing. There are some nice chill-out areas and also a bar.

Only bad things: the room was very hot for two of the nights and the bathroom is probably the smallest I have ever seen!

Overall, good hostel by London standards!!

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.

Very comfortable and clean, it is also in the center of london near a metro station so transportation is good, it is also in a very rich neighbourhood so it is so calm at night. Rooms are of 8 double decker beds, i would not like staying at the top level as you have to climb to your bed somehow but beds are cozy. No free wifi but u can pay like 7 pounds for 3 days wifi access for only one device. Breakfast is included with the price of the bed, good food every morning.
Totally recommed it, actually i never thought a hostel would be as good as that.

This hostel is in Paddington. It is very close to the train station and the tube station - less than 5 minutes walk. Very convenient if you are arriving at Heathrow as the Heathrow express train runs to Paddington station.

The hostel itself is very nice, clean and comfortable. The rooms are quiet big in comparison with other hostels I have stayed in and our 4 bed female room has en-suite which is good for the bargin price of £30 each per night. The hostel itself was quiet and the location of the hostel is also quiet, off the main road.

Towels are £4 to hire, so remember to take your own!

Overall, I would recommend to anyone looking for a cheap place to stay in London!

We had a great experience at Equity Point the staff were friendly and very helpful, they helped us out with some shipping we needed done and were very accomodating. The only down side to our triple private room was the shower, I've never seen a shower so small in all my life! It was under a mtre squared, and it had a horrid yucky shower curtain.

But would still recommend the hostel

I booked here just for one night before a flight home so that I had easy access to the Paddington station. The staff was very helpful with my questions. I had two other people in my room, nice girls from Canada. We had a private bathroom. The bed was comfortable. No complaints. It sits on a nice street.

I am staying here these days. Must admit that it's a neat, clean and very hygienic property. London is an expensive business but you could always make it within your expenses being staying in this hotel. A family oriented environment and the staff treats you like Kings, very helpful and accommodating. Right next to London's main subway station Paddington. In a nut shell - this place is awesome.
