Clean, central location. Not much atmosphere, nobody really used the social area so difficult to meet people. Makes it look like it has a bar but it doesn't. But very cheap!


This hostel was a let down, the room was spacious and clean even had a fridge in there. However beds and bedding had seen better days. Friends bed was very lumpy also. The real problem was the showers and toilets, there was also dirt and water on the floor flip flop were essential!. Also shower curtain did not close all the way. 2 of the toilets did not have locks on and 1 had not door!. The only saving grace is Excellent location in the Centre. Hostel just needs to TLC and could be good.


Great location, bit tahnks to the staff for telling us cheap places to eat where we would get a discount :)


The Hostel is perfectly located in Pest, in the middle of shops, restaurants, close to the metro station. It's open 24/7 so you can come and go whenever you want, and there's always somebody at the reception, ready to help you. Only the wifi network wasn't that good. But it wasn't a real problem for us honestly. It was a really nice stay in Budapest. Thanks All Central Hostel!

great central hostel. no complaints overall. would stay again


Close to everything, nice, clean, and the bar next to the hostel: 2,5 euros for a cocktail (mojito, pina colada), what a pleasure!

The rooms were tired and uncomfortable beds plus two of the male toilets on our floor either were out of order or do the lock didn't work. The location was great and in a really safe part of the city.


Nice place to stay. Good rooms, comfiest beds I've had in a ehile, central to everything and value. Would've stayed a couple more nights if it wasnt booked up. Not much of a common room, but I'd recommend it.


Really close to the main square where most tours and buses leave from. The bathrooms were sometimes unclean, similarly with the common room. But we put this down to the other guests rather than the staff. There was always someone at the front desk and they were always friendly and offered advice when we needed it.


The showers were very annoying. The shower curtain is too short to close. They need to mop the floor in the bathroom more than once a day.


One of the best choices in Budapest! Awesome location, security, cleanliness and value for money. Second time in this hostel!


Rooms were nice and clean. Toilets and bathroom are not in good condition. Awful kitchen, maybe they clean it once per year.

We were a bit disappointed with the location of the hostel as it wasn't located particularly near to either the main sights in the city or the central train station which added complications to the trip. Most of the staff were friendly but the atmosphere wasn't great around the hostel! The toilets weren't the cleanest we've seen either! On the whole however, due to the cheap price of the hostel, I'd recommend staying if you're on a budget and aren't bothered about quality.


they 'clean' the place with a mop and dirty water...instead of cleaning every day they should get new shower curtains so that water doesnt go everywhere, such a stupid place. no one spoke english but the cleaning ladies were very friendly


Only stayed one night as we were in another hostel for 3 nights and wanted to stay in budapest another night but it booked up. This place is not exaggerating calling itselt all central! Close to everything, including the central metro to get to anything in the city if you don't fancy walking! Would reccomend to see all sights and to those going out too!


We stayed in a double private room with ensuite, it was awesome. Great location, clean, friendly staff, we were even provided with toiletries. Would recommend for sure.


Perfect location! Thanks for the nice time Bianca and Gabor!

I stayed one night in this Hostel. The location is excellent at the hearth of Budapest area. Food areas and tourism attractions just in walk distance. However, the condition of the bed and room are below average with deflated mattress and pillow. I booked in 4-bed-dorm room but they gave me 6-bed-dorm.
