I really enjoyed my stay in this hostel. Good location; it's also pretty cheap. Nice bathrooms, always clean, as the whole hostel. I really liked my room; there are no bunk beds, but just regular comfortable beds, which is great and makes you feel like home. The common room/kitchen was really nice as well, bright and cozy = perfect both for work and for socializing. Nice and helpful staff. My only complaint is that it was really cold in my room, otherwise everything's ok.

Big Fish Hostel was a great place for us! My friend and I felt like home, the staff was very helpful and recommended us the best places to go. If I had to recommend a place to stay in Budapest, it definitely would be Big Fish Hostel

The hostel was near a lot of restaurants and about a 20 minute walk to some of the sites so I walked most places but there was public transportation that takes you to it. The staff was really nice and helpful!

Friendliest and most helpful staff I've ever met, very home-like atmosphere (the fact you can't have your shoes on does make it feel like you're at home just in a different country with new flat mates). Great facilities (iMac, library, games, giant lockers) and overall very clean ambient. Location couldn't be better, just next to a lot of restaurants and convenience stores. I had a great time with people there and would definitively love to come back to Budapest to stay there again.

Big Fish hostel was an amazing place to stay. Great location, super friendly staff, everything clean, very close to city centre and bike rental station. There was plenty of space in the room, power outlet right next to the bed and enough lockers. Bathrooms were clean and I love the idea of bucket lists on the toilet :) Funny reading and contributing.

Nice experience! The hostel is little and really familiar. The room was very good, enough space for luggage and very clean. The bathrooms were excelent as the kitchen. The negative point is the social life, because of its size, people don't interact that much. Totally approved!

We loved staying at Big fish Budapest. The staff was great, the hostel felt cozy, like home. We instantly fell in love with it. The staff helped us a lot with visiting the city, and suggesting about restaurants. And also the location is nice. near the tram, metro and the centre of the city! Nice

I loved Big Fish! The staff members were helpful and knowledgeable about the city, the facilities were clean and colorful, and the atmosphere is just perfect. Stay at Big Fish when you're in Budapest!

Very quirky hostel, suited my personality very well. Staff extremely friendly, room had ample space for storage. Very easy to meet other travellers in the common room, although I would call it more like a family room as that was the warm vibe it gave off.
