Equity Point Hostels wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
2010 has been a huge year for Equity Point Hostels. We’ve started the adventure of opening new Hostels in new Countries to give our customers the opportunity to choose the quality of an Equity Point Hostel in their trips.
In concrete we opened Equity Point London in March, a charm hostel close to Paddington Station and a few minutes away from Hyde Park. We also opened Equity Point Lisboa in November, a fascinating Hostel just in the city center of Lisbon, a magical capital in the south of Europe. We’ve also announced a new location in Madrid that will open in February, a better and bigger Hostel in the city center of Madrid.
We hope we can bring you even more new hostels on your favorite locations this 2011.
At Equity Point we’re always trying to offer the best hostels at the best locations, so to provide a better service we’re going to change our location in Madrid.
On February we will launch a new Equity Point Hostel in Madrid. It will be at Calle de la Cruz 3 and 5. The hostel already has 101 rooms with 1, 2, 3 and 4 beds. It also has a big dining room, where we will serve our free breakfast, and two living rooms working as common areas.
Equity Point will renovate all the building and its rooms to adapt the hostel to the quality standards that you always find at an Equity Point Hostel. Come and visit us!
Westminster Palace was the Royal Palace until 1512 when a fire destroyed it, so now the royal Family lives at Buckingham Palace. Since then Westminster Palace has been used as a Parliament. The Palace has around 1100 rooms which include the famous two chambers of parliament: the House of Commons and the House of Lords.
If you stay with us at our London Hostel you should take a walk along the Thames and watch the famous view from across the river of Westminster Palace next to the Big Ben and Saint Margaret Church.
Have you noticed we’ve changed the design of Equity Point Hostels web? Do you like it?
We wanted to create a cleaner design with an easier navigation that allows you to find whatever you’re searching for at first sight. We’ve also introduced a booking box in every page. This way you’ll be able to check the availability and prices at any moment and even book a bed at any of our hostels.
We hope you’ll like our new design as much as we do.
We are always trying to please our clients and give them the Equity Point experience every time they travel but that’s not possible as long as we don’t have hostels everywhere –but we’d like to-.
We want to solve this problem opening new Equity Point Hostels to allow every traveler to enjoy affordable accommodation with the best quality standards that distinguish Equity Point Hostels.
So, stay tuned because in a few days we’ll have a new Equity Point Hostel. Where will it be?

Last Saturday the 5th of June the Equity Point Hostel in London became officially a reality. The hostel has been opened since last March, but the official opening was on the 5th of June. The rendezvous was at 5 o’clock and we welcomed our guests with a glass of Catalan cava. It was a great pleasure to see that some of our colleagues from other hostels, suppliers, and friends were there to share with us this great moment. Before starting with the speeches, our guests had the opportunity to visit the rooms and the common areas of the building. They all said they were impressed
