It's hard to find at first, but once you get there it's a pleasant place with a homey feel thanks to the colorful decor and extremely inviting staff. They were so accommodating to our needs and more than fun to hang out with. The staff know the city really well so they can help you with anything. Thanks for making a big city feel small and showing us a great time.

Walking distance from the river and the main sights but far enough that everything around the hostel was cheaper than in the main city areas. Great staff and facilities, best shower i have had in a while. Would definetly recomend it.

This hostel had such a unique and fun feel to it. The staff really did a good job of making it feel like home and being as helpful as possible. I would definitely recommend staying here!

The atmosphere of this little hostel is really warm. It is full of volunteers from different countries that live here for a while and are willing to share a lot with customers. It could not be best-located as it is 10mn. max for every hostpot of Budapest nightlife and in the heart of the Jewish area that contain most of the awesome façades and sightviewing of the city. Bathroom and kitchen are very well-equipped. The mattresses are a bit too thin though.

Amazing hostel with a very "homey" feel and a staff that is super friendly and just enjoyable to be around. They offer tours for anything (caving, Budapest baths, etc...) directly from reception and the hostel itself is in a very central location with a trolley stop just outside the hostel. Probably the most chill and enjoyable hostel I have stayed at thus far, thanks to both the staff and relaxed environment. Looking forward to visiting again someday.

DEAR GOD I LOVE THIS PLACE. Stayed here first in March 2013 and definitely made the right call staying at Big Fish again this time around. Vesna and the staff are a hilarious bunch but very helpful and great at their jobs. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms squeaky clean, and the location couldn't be better, especially if arriving/departing from Keleti station. 12/10, would always come back here :)

I like this hostel because the staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is also good, close to the metro and just in front of the road. Good wifi connectivity and cozy room. nly stayed here overnight but I had a nice and comfortable stay.

The hostel feels like home. The girls from the reception were awesome, so welcoming and genuinely nice people. They also took time to write down some nightclubs and pubs to go that were close. The bedroom was very spacious, the bed was comfortable, with individual light and powerpoint to charge your phone. The kitchen was well equipped, there are some markets close. Only wish the hostel sign was a bit bigger, since I had some trouble to notice it. Wish you guys the best, I'll be back in summer!

It was pretty empty during the time I was there. Location was nearby several bars which was perfect for drinks. 15-20 mins walk to main square. Staff was very helpful and I throughly enjoyed my stay there.

Great little cozy hostel in Budapest. Since it was winter it was quiet but the volunteers there are always around to make you feel welcome and are happy to involve you and take you out for food, tea or drinks. Excellent option for a solo traveller. Didn't want to leave. Would highly recommend!

Staying at Big Fish was like staying with family, it felt a bit cliquey when I first got there, but then realised majority of the people were staff and not guests, but after I spoke with majority of people it was like a nice cosy family. The hostel itself was great value for money, good location, clean bathrooms, great common area where there's a projector for tv/music/movies and just chatting, clean and good kitchen space, and beds were comfortable enough. Would definitely stay here again
