Liked: This hostel is about 5 mins walk from Paddington station which has good connections to everywhere basically.

Disliked: The place is a bit cramped, and if you stay in Double ensuite room in the basement, there is no elevator available, which means you will have to haul your luggage in and out yourselves. Also, the bathroom, especially the shower is too small, even for me.

Liked: Equity Point London is a quiet hostel in a perfect location (within walking distance to several tube and bus stops). Every person in the dorms has their own locker and there are reading lights above each bed, which make coming home or reading late easier for everyone. The breakfast is better than at many other hostels I've stayed at. There is a selection of different jams, honey, cheeses and cereals, as well as different fruit juices and the regular hot drinks (coffee, tea, hot chocolate). Staff at reception was always friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Although my stay at Equity Point was overall pleasant, I wouldn't exactly call the room I stayed in (and its ensuite bathroom) very clean. But since I stayed in an 8-bed dorm it was probably more my roommates fault than the hostel's... Common and breakfast areas were always clean!!

Liked: The staff was very friendly and everything was really clean and neat. There is an organised system of sorting out sheets and what nots, overall really good experience. Very central location as well, 3 minute walk from Paddington Station, was definitely very pleased with Equity Point.

Disliked: It got noisy at night and sleep definitely isn't guaranteed but this happens in every hostel, and you can't really ask for much given a shared room with 7 others.

Liked: The location was great to go to the center. 15-20 mins walking The hostel is cool, it's modern and the layout of the room is pretty good. The breakfast included is really appreciable, the space for take it is pleasant. So I was satisfied of the hostel

Disliked: There some things bad: - the wifi is not free, it's stupid when you can take it everywhere in london except in the hostel... - problem in the little bathroom: because of the curtain shower wich doesn't used correctly, the bathroom become quickly a swimming pool.. As we can't explain to everybody how take a shower, it would be better to find a another mean to protect the floor from the water, because it isn't cool for room mates.. - cleanless: in the room, it depended of our room mate but for the common space there are several negligence. It was lot of dust on the stairs, the floor wasn't really clean. It's a shame because this nice place could be perfect if there were a good cleaning everyday

Liked: Trendy foyer, cosy places to relax as a group, fantastic location and fun activities to join in with every evening.

Disliked: Some staff were a little unfriendly first thing in the morning, and we had to share our room with a mezanine for staff and their alarms went off constantly between 7 and 8pm, walking us all up. I think we just picked the wrong room for getting a lie in!

Liked: This proprety is very centrally located. However you should also know that because of the size of London you still need to take public transport if you want to see any sights, so you wont be saving any money on that. Its clean and secure.

Disliked: This propety has no atmosphere at all - no common rooms, no kitchen with self-catering facilities just a breakfast room where there arent even plates or cutlery. There is absolutely no place to socialize in this hostel, the only place you can sit is your own bed - I was sitting in the breakfast room all evening hoping to watch telly at least but the remote was nowhere. If you are travelling alone or just simply like meeting people I can assure you this is not the place for you rather look for another hostel. The high price you are paying is simply because of the location - they dont even have free wifi, you have to pay for that separately. Very bad value for the money you are paying.

Liked: Location, friendly staff, breakfast room were good.

Disliked: Shower was very small and hard to get the water temperature right. During our five nights stay, the bins were emptied, but no other cleaning was done. Dirty towels were not replaced except when taken to the front desk. Late night noise made sleeping difficult at times---slamming doors, loud conversations, returning loud revellers...
