This hostel was easy to find and well located, near a metro station and a 15 min walk from the river. There was only a masking tape sign on the door and the hostel is only comprised of around 6 rooms (plus toilet/shower and kitchen). Payment was due in full in cash on arrival (credit/debit cards not accepted). We stayed in a private twin room which had the worst beds of our long trip through Europe and it was dirty. Bathrooms and Kitchen were not good at all and the atmosphere was depressing.
Amazing location!! I love walking and every major sight in BP was easily reachable for me! The hostel is precisely opposite a metro station so you don't have to drag your luggage a long way. The staff is friendly and there is no problem to leave some stuff at the reception if you leave the city later than check-out time. It's a clean place, has a kitchen (never used it myself). The room facing the street is noisy due to traffic but after 12 hours of walking about BP you hardly notice the noise!

Stayed for a couple of nights in the summer, is almost an apartment with rooms rented. Clean, good facilities and great for a little privacy with lockable rooms. The staff were helpful in recommending things to do and ensuring that we got the most out of our time. Although it was a walk of about 10/15 mins to most main attractions there is a metro and tram station directly outside the hostel. Also had facilities to cook and a shop downstairs.
It's just a place to sleep. Nothing more. Not a good place for meeting new people, but the beds are quite comfortable, and the location is okay. A bit outside the City center, but there's a nearby metrostation, and the tram is just outside the door. Next time I'm going to Budapest, I'll find another place to stay. Nothing bad about this place, I just like when a hostel is more than just a place to sleep :)
Helpful stuff very good location! I definitely recommend it!
The 5 bed room was very noisy. Lots of traffic noise so I know there's not much they could do, but it was still annoying. The powerpoints were in inconvenient locations around the room. The staff were pleasant but not the most helpful.
