Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Equity Point Hostels


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.

A New Years Eve in Lisbon


Lisbon is gorgeous city and it prepares really special parties for New Years Eve. This year it can be even more awesome because for the first time there’s an Equity Point Hostel in Lisbon. And it will be fun!

There will be a giant free party at Praça do Comércio starting from 10 pm with live music from the Portuguese bands ‘A Fúria do Açúcar’ and ‘Xutos e Pontapés’ . And of course, there will be fireworks all along the river.

There will be also several parties in the main neighborhoods of Lisbon. So if you want to have a really special New Year’s Eve come to Equity Point Lisboa. You’ll have an unforgettable night!

Lisbon Trams


A typical picture of Lisbon always has a tram or an elevator in it, and Lisbon is a city that dazzles for its yellow trams –the red ones are tourist trams-, which are the most used public transport in the city. There are two different kinds of trams in Lisbon: the oldest ones are from the First World War and the most modern ones are largest.

The trams just work around the most centric parts of the city, but it’s not a problem because they can get you back to Equity Point Lisboa from the most charming neighborhoods of Lisbon and from most of the tourist spots.

And the most remarkable of it all is that, because it’s a public transport, it’s pretty cheap to take one of the yellow trams, and even the funicular railways, so you can enjoy a trip around Lisbon and back to the hostel for an affordable price.

Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park in London

Did you know that Equity Point Hostel in London is really close to Hyde Park? In less than five minutes walking you’ll be at one of the most gorgeous parks in London, and until January 4th there’s extra fun with the Winter Wonderland attractions.
