Today is the big day as Equity Point Prague opens to the public. We’re very proud because it’s our 10th hostel and the first in Eastern Europe.
Equity Point Prague has 150 beds, a lounge area, a bar, a dining room area, a kitchen available for guests, a launderette and a chill out area. The building has been fully renovated and it now has wooden floors, granite staircases, modern bathrooms and double pane windows, something really important in Prague’s winter.
But probably the most interesting thing about Equity Point Prague is its location at the heart of the old town, at Ostrovni Street. It’s just some steps away from Slavia Café and 5 minutes walking from Charles Bridge.
When you visit Prague you love its magic atmosphere and if you stay at Equity Point Prague you’ll have a wonderful time.
I remember that as a kid I loved Easter because of the tones of chocolate I was allowed to eat. Of course I had to work really hard to get it, painting and hunting hard boiled eggs which, I had to admit, was funny too.
Nowadays, if you want to bring back the memories of old Easter days or live new experiences with your kids, in London –where we have the awesome Equity Point London hotel- there are plenty of activities such as: an egg hunt with prizes at Covent Garden; another egg hunt with craft stalls and Bunny Dance at the Horniman Museum; The Christathon, a pub crawl whose participants must go dressed as Christ; a boat race at Putney Bridge; a goat race –with real goats-; or the classical performance of The Passion of Jesus at Trafalgar Square.
You know you shouldn’t lose it!

One of Equity Point Hostel’s signatures is that we serve a basic free breakfast at all our hostels. The content of this breakfast may vary depending on the kind of food that’s available at each country and also may slightly fluctuate seasonally.
Many people ask us about what’s included at our breakfast so we’ve decided to start a series of posts with pictures of those meals. And today we will start for Equity Point Lisboa’s breakfast which includes: coffee, milk, tea, juices, cereals, bread, jam, butter, chocolate cream and fruit.

Each year Marrakech hosts one of the world’s most important and competitive marathons and that’s because Moroccan athletes are between the best running long distances. Over 5000 athletes are expected on January 27th to run both, the marathon and the half marathon and we’d love to help them.
So we’re running a contest between the athletes, and we will award a free half an hour leg massage to the three Equity Point Marrakech guests that achieve the best marks at the marathon.
