we were in the downstairs rooms which seemed really dark and dank. downstairs was also 1 shower/bathroom which was used by the 3 downstairs rooms people + those who slept outside. if you stay inside, try to get an upstairs room where its lighter and has better shower/bathroom access.

This is a really nice and relaxed hostel with great staff! Nice and clean rooms, common areas and kitchen. Don't miss this place if you are in Budapest and looking for a peacefull stay.


Staff were really lovely and welcoming, great kitchen which was always clean and well-equipped. Very relaxed vibe, an absolute pleasure to stay!! Would definitely come back in a heartbeat!


Really great hostel. Great place to go and chill out, relax in a hammock, smoke some sisha. The staff were fantastic, really friendly and helpful. I'm not sure what else I can say, it's an amazing hostel.
