Good hostel, however is far from city center and the bedroom where i stayed was for 6 people however all the other rooms pass in my bedroom to go the others bedrooms. It wasnt good for sleep.
The ostel is located about 20 minutes walk from the main center and it's a little bit hard to find, although the instructions on the website about public transportation are very good. The hostel looks nice from the inside, but our double room felt more like a sleeping-closet, although it was cozy in a way. It's a small and relatively quiet hostel, so very suitable for people that do not want to party all night. All in all it's a fine hostel, nothing really special, but also no reason not to go.
The staff are lovely and friendly and it was a really sociable. However the beds could have been better
It's so tiny it's like a regular house in a way which was lovely it has a great atmosphere and it was nice to have like a "home' in a way. its a pretty quiet hostel,but we liked that to have a bit of a more restful place. you can still go out partying though (we did) and arrived back at like 6am and that was no problem so it was ideal really. they vacuum and mop the floors every single day, though i suspect thats also cause staff are bored cause the hostel is so small but it kept things spotless
When we booked a private bedroom we expected not to have to enter the bedroom through a 8 people bedroom, we expected to have a window we can chose if open or not (it was extremelly hot), and a wall that keeps somehow the noise from the other rooms. We had to set a curtain with two t-shirts so we did not disturb the people in the eight beds room with our light. The height of the room (from floor to ceilling) is two meters, not for big people.
Overall, not bad! Location was close to heroes square but a long walk to city centre. The people were nice, rooms were alright, showers/washrooms were co-ed, but it was easy to get into the hostel and rooms during the day (was locked at night).
Little bit of a hassle with our room upon arrival, but it was dealt with quickly. Room is very small with almost no airflow. It promotes meeting in the common area :) Kitchen and the bathrooms very clean at all times. Atmosphere is that of a quiet place.
Nice location a little outside the center, but still close to the subway. The staff was great and the atmosphere is very friendly, however I cannot fully recommend Baroque hostel because the room was atrocious. They put 4 beds in a room that was literally a large closet. There is no way 4 people could have even stood in the room much less room for their luggage. Additionally, the door on that room was VERY squeaky. This is my third time to Budapest, if I return for a 4th, I will not stay here.
One of the 8-bed female dorm had no window. Even one night there was an extra mattress on the floor, so that we were sharing 9 people a room without window and a tiny fan to remove the air. One toilette was broken and, as a result, only 1 was available for all women. It also lacked a window, so that it didn't smell good. Very cheap, but would not recommend for long stays

Nicest hostel we stayed in by a mile, perfect location and super-friendly and helpful staff. The building is beautiful, people were great. It was pretty quiet as its low-capacity but so close to transport links, grocery stores and getting into town. Will definitely be staying here again if I'm in Budapest!
I thought the hostel was very clean and a great space, however it is a bit far from the city center and you would definitely need to hop on the metro or bus in order to make it into downtown in under 30 mins. Everyone working there was helpful and congenial and made staying there quite comfortable. They do have a kitchen so you can buy your own food and cook which is nice. The wifi is somewhat sporadic though and it should be noted that the bathroom is done in communal dorm style.
Wonderful Staff and environment.

Very quiet and tidy place with charming interiors. Very nice, practical location, close to shops and public communication. The only downside is some creaky doors, thin walls between the rooms and wooden floors (it's made from a huge, old flat), so you have to be careful not to disturb others, but if you understand that - not a problem. Not a party place (which I found very positive) and perhaps not a hitch-hiker - backpacker's dream, rather a boutique spot.
The hostel was great and staff were really helpful. Amazing !!! :)

This was the second time when I have stayed in the Baroque Hostel. From last time everything has changed much better stuff, everything is super clean the security is also much better! I will come back again for sure!!:-)))
First I would kike to say the day staff are very nice and helpful, and in general I had no complaints on the staff front. Still with rooms within rooms means people walking through to get to their rooms making it noisy. Also the public space is charmless and depressing. It is a good location for the Park and heroes square with great jogging tracks, but inferior for anyone who wants to be near down town or the tourist sites
