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.:)


Everything was great . Location is very near to turistical center. Hostel stuff was very friendly


Good location!


Great location, 1 minute walk from metro station, pretty comfy beds, great value for money.


I was written that we had the breakfast included, but when we arrived the receptionist told us that it doesn't, whereas we have paid for that !!!!!!
