Even though this hostel has a great location, everything else about it needs improvement. It was extremely dirty as if no one had cleaned it sinced it opened. It was too hot to need any of the sheets, but if I had needed them I would not have touched them. I slept ontop of my towel the whole time out of fear of when the beds were last cleaned.

The first guy at the reception was just horrible. He didn't say much and he acted as if I was not there. He was unwilling to help. The other days there were other people who were a bit nicer. Beds are just horrible, you move and the noise they make wakes everybody up in the room; it seems that there's no matress. Bathrooms were dirty and full of water all the time. No airport transfer. Good things:soup and paper all the time, open wifi, free towel. It's a cheap hostel.
This hostel was in the centre of Budapest. Really good place, in the main busy bit and a 2 minute walk from the metro stop. I also had my passport pick pocketed from my bag while out and luckily the britsh embassy was just down the road! Bonus!! The staff were really lovely and even let us shower after wed checked out due to to cancelled trains. Definitely would go back
Kitchens are small and could one find one knife between all four floors, nice to have one on each floor tho. Bar below has cheap beer and pizza, staff is nice and relaxed.
All up I wasnt very impressed by the hostel.
The hostel was good and with nice staff. But we really missed a common area to chill out and meet the other guests at the hostel.
Unbeatable location, right in the middle of down town
Where it located is very easy to fınd, Close to everywhere, wifi connection is bad (only corridor and common room) common baths, you can only pay with credıt card, no cash accepted, small rooms, although everything; it has a brilliant location
Massive hostel so could have done with more than one computer. I arrived at about 1 in the morning from the airport after booking about a week before...after following the guy on reception to several rooms where he kept promising me there would be a bed, he eventually decided that there wasn't any room. An hour later he started calling other hostels. At nearly three he said he couldn't find anywhere for me to go. Eventually he let me just go and share with a friend upstairs. Poor organisation.
The location and the value are the best part of staying in this hostel. The building is kind of old and not that clean, but I think one can not expect so much when spending few money. I would say that the security could be better, because some rooms are always opened and there are many people in every dorm.
The price was low, so we didn't mind old beds, but I definitely advise this hostel, because location is fantastic! It is situated in the centre and we could easily go everywhere we wanted!
The location is perfect with the main center's street just around the corner. It would have been convenient to be able to use plastic instead of cash. The ATM is just around the corner though. The lockers don't work properly with all padlocks. The shower really needs a makeover. Loads of shower curtains are missing. The wifi is too weak upstairs.
Nice and huge hostel in the best location of Bp. Clean and restored building, helpful staff, highly recommended
Extremely central, friendly staff. Small, but ok rooms. Good value for the money
