Equity Point are a hostel chain, and based on my experiences I would definitely check out their other hostels if I was in the cities they serve. The service is basic, as you would expect, but it is provided in a genuinely friendly manner by all the staff I came across, and by London standards the hostel was very clean. It's location in a rather salubrious part of town is perfect for Paddington station and will be even more so when Crossrail opens. The area is also very safe, so no worries about taking advantage of their 24 hour reception desk and coming back in the small hours. The breakfast and common room area is hidden away downstairs and I notice at least one other reviewer didn't even find it! It provides toast, juice, tea and coffee in the morning and is good in the evening for a game of cards, a coffee, a few beers (not available in the hostel, but you can bring your own) or to catch up on TV - unfortunately the WiFi is not inclusive. Bedrooms are fine and have an en-suite bathroom which in my experience makes them more pleasant than the communal ones you get in other hostels.
Only complaint was that when I stumbled back on my first night, I found my bed occupied - not as on a previous hosteling experience because somebody couldn't be bothered to find the right bed, but because it had somehow been double allocated. Anyway, the staff sorted me out with another bed promptly and apologised profusely.
