Good location, good place, yet need to work on controlling corridors parties. People were entering other rooms, making noise till 5 am, etc


Although the reception had a safe, the locker keys weren't available to use in the rooms. Often times I found my valuables not even in the safe. Common room was very quiet, so it was a difficult atmosphere to meet people. But the location was perfect and the price was great.


It was a clean,lovely and even it was in the middle of the city it was very cheap.but the room was cold and the sheets weren't enough but the smiling faces of staff makes you don't care about it.if you want to see Budapest I strongly recommend all central hostel

The hostel is situated in a great location. Very friendly, helpful staff. Rooms modest but good. Only the squeaky bed :)

Blankets are too thin for cold weather


I hate this hostel. I was stuck in a room with two guys who permanently live in the hostel (I'm a girl), when I had asked for an all female dorm. The receptionist gave me two small lockers, even though there should be a small locker and big locker for everyone in the room, saying that he "couldn't find the keys". And, one of the two small lockers that he gave me were already full. The cleaning staff were also very rude. They blasted music with a radio from outside our room door...and more...

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.
