  • Big giant bathroom, tall ceilings, right next to the main train station in a good neighborhood and several grocery stores nearby down the main avenue, and also close to one of the main trams, and walking distance from the river. Also the staff was awesome, the first and only time I've heard someone say "if something is wrong, please let us know and we'll fix it". Not that there was anything wrong... it was just good to hear that they cared. A+

  • Altough we weren't informed we'll stay on Izabella Street (we liked the Jokai Ut. location, it was more central), everything turned out ok. We were 4 and 2 slept on a bed, and the others on a mattress on the floor, but we spent so little inside that we're not complaining. We had a kitchenette and the bath was clean. The door was poorly locked, but the neighbours weren't criminals either. All in all, a great value for money, if i ever return in Budapest, i'll contact Milan again :)

  • If you ever head to Budapest, East Side is the place to stay in! We had our own apartment a few blocks away from the hostel with all the facilities you could dream of. The atmosphere at the hostel is just great, amazing, friendly and helpful staff (thank you Milan & Istvan, love you!) The location is excellent with the metro station only a 5 minute walk away, the main street is close and the city centre is in walking distance.

  • Unfortunately, what this hostel doesn't tell you is that the private rooms are in a separate apartment three blocks away. This place doesn't have wi-fi, the toilet leaked, and only half the lights turned on. The washing machine had mold in it! The one staff member we met was not friendly and not at all helpful. I did enjoy the privacy though!

My personal definition of a backpacker is not someone who carries a backpack, but someone who just wants to save money to travel longer.
