Quiet and peaceful hostel with family atmosphere, we definitely recommend it if you want to sleep good in a center of Budapest. The lady you meet there is a very nice and she will give you tips and tricks where to go, where to buy without being ripped off, her advice is very useful better than some guide. If we ever go to Budapest again we are definitely going to stay there, there's no reason to look somewhere else ... nothing beats feeling of home.


The location is superb, right in the center of Budapest with cool sights, restaurants, shopping etc. I liked the city itself and the night life was enjoyable. The owner, Lia was well informed and helpful. The hostel had a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. The rooms were spacious and always clean. It was definitely worth the price.


Hostel at a convenient location in Budapest. The owner is a nice lady that can answer your questions about Budapest. The hostel is nice and clean.


This is not a hostel, it is more of a guest house. You are living in a woman's home. I did not enjoy my stay here. On entering the house you must take off your shoes. The toilet is in one room wjile the shower and sink in another. meaning you can't wash your hands if someone is showering. There was a smell of gas when we used the shower. You can only use the kitchen between 8-10am and 6-8pm. Wifi was specified on the hostel description, however it came on and off randomly.

Dear Guest,sorry you did not enjoy your stay. The WI-Fi was used all day long , so we had switched it off late at night, to allow it to cool down. Yet , we have turned it back on immediately, after you have woken us at 4.00 am , asking to turn it on. Our gas boiler gets regularly checked and serviced ( as per legal requirement ) , and we never had any complaints. And yes, we ask guests to take off their shoes, this is a tradition, that also helps to keep hostel more clean, we provide slippers


this more than a hostel is a large flat with room reconverted in dormitorys. Location is excellent, place is clean and good value for money., wifi is available. That told I can recommend some change to the owner to make a even better experience to guests. Let freely to open windows to guests and swith on the light as long as desired in common areas, considering the lackage of windows in the entrance. Would be also appreciated a longer use of the kitchen (8-10 is too short).
