Great hostel, staff were lovely and really helpful. Not too far from the station, make sure you take the main exit at the end of the station platforms and turn right to the no7 bustop. They have everything you would expect of a hostel, large lockers, decent beds and plenty of facilities. And they provide a wash and dry service which was handy as i arrived there halfway through my trip with NO clean clothes haha. Definitely recommended.
I was really happy with this hostel. We had a bit of inconvenience when we were moved to a second location but all the staff were really helpful, they were very informative and up to date with events in the city and fun things to do.
Really friendly and helpful staff, facilities also perfect for the place. Only bad thing was the window to the street and a lot of traffic noise because of it.

Loved my stay at Big Fish - the location was awesome, and the staff were really friendly. Easy to meet people in the common room.

Best hostel I've been in so far. Staff was friendly, I asked the guy behind the desk to wake me up at 8 am because I had to get my taxi and I was completely wasted, he was like "sure, no problem, you go sleep, I will make 100% sure you wake up." and he did. The common room makes for a great place to meet new people during the evening, or to sit and watch a movie with others if it's simply too hot to do anything actively
This was such a feel at home hostel. The staff was so helpful with directions and assisting you with what you should do in the city, I felt very safe and comfortable here and I would recommend it to anyone to say here! Right by the nearest tram station (never been to a city with such efficient means of transportation) but a bit far from the airport about 25/30 minutes, but other than that its in a good location. Keep it up Big Fish.
Amazing stay at Big Fish! 100% recommend. Staff were lovely and helpful, comfortable beds and spacious rooms. Great atmosphere with lots of other travellers. Bathrooms were clean with good showers. And nice common room/kitchen with sofas, bean bags, tv and lots of films! Location is also excellent.
The staff were amazing from start to finish. They really enabled us to have a fantastic party time, (special mention must go to Sam!! ) This, entwined with the fact that the set up of the hostel was immense created the perfect location for chilling and curing the hangover while being only 15 mins walk away from the sights. The only issue we had was with a certain group of other guests who were immature and neanderthilic in their approach to arguments, so stupid. But big fish is amazing!!!
Great hostel. Would stay here again and recommend to friends. Staff in particular were friendly and helpful. Wasn't too big and there was plenty of space and facilities for everyone staying there.
5star hostel! excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Location is very close to all the attractions, and the staff was very friendly. It's quiet, but it is very easy to socialize with fellow guests.
Right near district 7, it's perfectly placed for getting to the lively bars and any other tourist destinations
A great little place. Nice and social atmosphere. Would love to go back, meet a few really cool people. Great place for solo travelers
Really happy with our stay here. Staff and all the backpackers were very cool and interesting; everyone had a good story to tell from all over the world. (i.e a very good atmosphere) Also, we felt quite secure and safe. The hostel was basically a big apartment with a common room which had a tv/computer set up, allowing us to watch movies, YouTube etc with the rest of the travelers. I couldn't recommend this place more! Go now!!
Staff were so friendly and helpful with getting to know the city. The loft style bedrooms were different and cool. Really liked this hostel.
A bit expensive compare to what you can get somewhere else. Terez korut is definitely too noisy....
It had a really homely feel, the staff were really helpful and the atmosphere was really nice. I´d definately stay there again!
Good location, staff are friendly and helpful, but there was never enough hot water for a shower! Also note that they are cash-only - would have been nice to know before arriving! They do accept forint and euros though.
Great location with good atmosphere and nice staff, wouldn't recommend the pub crawl organised by the hostel. Bars were not great and had little or know atmosphere, some places wouldn't accept free drink chips so not money well spent!
Such a great hostel!! The vibe is excellent, very cool and laid back but at the same time fun and energetic for nightlife. The staff is very friendly and responsible. They have everything you need there. Kitchen, Beds, Lockers, Bathrooms are all on point. I highly recommend this place to anyone who has a sense of human nature and knows what's up. If you're like 18 and just wanna get faded, catch STD's, and never sleep then maybe look into Rehab, or Grandio. The Big Fish is a BIG plus in my book!
