The bathroom was completly dirty, without a light ! Was complicated to take a shower. I was travelling alone and i wanted to meet people but i was the only one in the room during all my stay at the hostel. Its not cheap and you dont have breakfast, beds are not really confortable. I would recommend this place only because of the location and because the staff is really friendly.


The women's bathrooms are really dirty and the bedrooms don't lock so anyone can go into your room.

This hostel is well located, has a large kitchen and common room. I have to praise the staff as well, very helpful in giving directions and tips about Budapest. The rooms were wide and cleaned, the beds not excellent but good enough for a few nights.


This hostel was amazing! there was a nice atmosphere, al rooms were clean and nice. The service is excellent! we came back from going out and we get another room so we don't have to check out before 10 and can sleep till we want. very nice suprise!


Had an amazing time at the hostel felt just like home when I left.!

This hostel is basic, no major complaints! Just the bathrooms weren't very clean and neither were the floors in the bedrooms!


really great hostel! kitchen was great for meeting people and also really well equipped, staff at the desk were really helpful for information about budapest, events, where to go and what to see. The hostel was friendly and easy to find and also very quiet even though it was in the centre of budapest. ideally located near the bars, attractions, restaurants and food shops. had a great stay here!


Great place! We was 5 for a trip of 4 days in order to make a memorable bachelor party (I guess we have succeed :p) That place is very welcoming, and everything is doing to make your stay enjoyable.. And that's coming by many little details whose are appreciated.. The staff was so helpful, for everything we needed there was ears for us.. Special thanks to Zsófi and Attila, we will come back to your place guys!!

Worst hostel ever. If you want to sleep do not stay here. The staff was partying with the hostel goers and they blasted music all night long. The bathrooms were constantly out of toilet paper and the shower is small and falling apart.

The woman who clean the hostel is unpleasant and rude. The showers in the kitchen is weird.


Hostel signage was very poor. Due to not being able to find the hostel we ended up being scammed in the back alley area right by the hostel by some fake cops. Location within the city is actually decent. The doors in this hostel do not lock, which was a major security issue for us. Definitely a party environment which was too rowdy for me. Single travelers avoid the big rooms here. Staff was generally nice. Stayed in the Hilton the last two nights of our trip after our experience here.


Good location, beautiful hostel with friendly staff.:)
