The staff were friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and bent over backwards to try and accommodate us. They also diplomatically dealt with 'difficult' customers in a way that did not offend anyone! We had a complication that was not really the hostel's problem - they only have 'mixed' dorms to tick online and we needed female only dorms as my student is a married muslim woman. The hostel really tried to accommodate us even though they didn't have to. Shout out for them and deep appreciation!

The common area/kitchen is quite small, but it's still possible to meet people. Nice friendly staff. Bathrooms are very clean and I didn't experience any queues. Spacious rooms, big lockers, free tea and coffee.... all good. The city is quite spread out, so there is no perfect location, but this seems like a good compromise.

great place. The hostel is split between two apartments so each is it's own little community but they do events together. I really like the feel - it feels like home not a big industrial hostel. Staff was mostly other travelers, very friendly but if they just moved to town- not great resources. Make sure you find the ones that know the area. Other than that, it's the best place I've stayed so far. Easy to meet people, great location.

Really such a nice hostel with a lovely friendly atmosphere and generally like-minded people up for a good time with cultural respect. Staff were lovely and very helpful. i dont think i have anything bad to say... Shoes off policy and free tea were also very much to my liking.

Big Fish was very friendly and welcoming to all of its guests. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable of the area. The hostel is not too big, so it is easy to get to know most of the guests. I would definitely recommend staying here, and would stay here again myself if I return to Budapest!

This was probably one of my best hostel experiences in Europe. The staff were really friendly and helpful, rooms and bathrooms were clean and the atmosphere was good for meeting other travellers. Location was also good for tourist attractions and perfect for nightlife. Would definitely come back to Big Fish!

Nice hostel

This hostel was charming in that it felt like a very large home-turned-into-hostel. The service was invaluable and splendid - everyone who worked there was more than happy to help for even the smallest things (locks, recommendations). The bathrooms were particularly cleaned and they had a spacious "living area" with a large tv and lots of media.One of the best hostel experiences in Europe, definitely recommended.

Hostel was small but still had a good vibe. If you are after a party hostel then this definitely isn't the one but it is within walking distance to most of the bars in town. They had no problem with us bringing our own alcohol in as there is no bar at the hostel. Staff were friendly and the hostel was pretty clean. Easy to get to from the train station.
