  • It's hard to say if I didn't like this hostel or just didn't like Budapest. The staff was hit or miss--some could be very immature and rude. Places like Budapest and therefore this hostel attract a certain type of crowd--young, electric/club oriented, and Westernized (if you catch my drift). This was the aspect I personally did not like but hey, if you're young and out to have fun- this is a great place for you. But again, you make it what you will. Overall, not a bad place and quite cozy.

  • I really liked staying at this hostel. My bed was in a "loft" area, which was nice- although it's dark and they could use more lighting up there. The staff were very nice, patient and helpful. I wasn't crazy about the location, but I did the hop on hop off Budapest thing and there were two bus stops from that that were very close to the hostel. Otherwise about 20-25 min walk to the center of things. Also, staff not super young which was nice- I'm 28 and fit in. Plus Towels & dryers, yay!

  • Very nice atmosphere and very nice people. Thank you very much! It's better to write a guide to show how to arrive at your hostel.

  • I would definitely recommend this hostel - it has a really homely feel and the staff were friendly. The rooms are of a high standard and it's definitely value for money, the hostel is situated a bit of a walk from the river but close to loads of cafes, restaurants and bars. The only issue we had was that only 2 of the 4 showers were working during our stay but if they were fixed it would have all been perfect! We'd definitely come back again in summer!
