Cozy, homely and the staff is pretty great fun, very near to the best places to go out at night.

For me it was my first experience with a hostel and it was just exciting. I felt comfortably from the first sight. The staff is very nice and accommodating. Also you can meet very nice and interesting people here. It was a great atmosphere especially in the night with sitting together, drinking beer, talking and some of them were playing on guitar and sang together. It was such a nice vibration. The rooms are very comfy, you also have lockers for each guest with enough space for a bag.

This hostel was amazing! Perfect location with it being just a few minutes walk to bars and restaurants and the center. It is also about a 5 min walk to the bus station and tram (easy to use) The staff were so friendly and extremely helpful. I felt comfortable there and would recommend to anyone!

Really nice place. Cool staff who treat it like a home and will hang out with you in the common area. Not really a party, but not boring either. Budapest is full of really great hostels, but if you're looking for a good base where you can sleep at night without being constantly woken up, this is a great option. I'd stay here again.

I already complimented them myself. It's a great hostel with nice people, facilities to cook. It feels like a second home.

There is no way how to describe the atmosphere in this hostel !! You just have to come and see. Really. All the people, whether it were guests or staff. All of them were just so nice !!! Staff knew a lot about area and they were always willing to help you. Also they organize lots of events, which is the best way how to get to know new people. The hostel was clean and beautiful.

Great staff and (mostly) cool guests. We stayed in the double room which was good value. A really cool vibe and always people to go out with every night. We had a good time here and made many new friends. Highly recommended if you want to see the Budapest nightlife without staying in a 'party hostel' surrounded by 18 year olds.
