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.

Are you the kind of person who likes to build its own furniture? Do you like to recycle your old stuff to give them a second life?
The staff at Equity Point Lisbon had a great idea and turned a suitcase into a different book shelf that fits perfectly the common room of the hostel.
We have posted the pictures of all the process at Facebook so you can do it yourself at home.
I love the idea and how it fits Equity Point Lisboa’s common room decoration, don’t you?
During all June Lisbon will be celebrating the biggest city street parties with exhibitions, cinema, theater plays, concerts and whatever you may imagine. If you want to enjoy Lisbon on its biggest yearly time you only have to come to visit us at Equity Point Lisboa. We are really close to most of Festas de Lisboa events.
The biggest event will take place on June 12th. Lisbon gets crowded and the streets got full of sardines, bread and wine, and we will also cook our own sardines at Equity Point Lisboa. But there’s not only food, there’s also a competition between historical neighborhoods with “Marchas Populares”, so everybody prepares original costumes, music and dances.
