This hostel is greatly located right in the city centre so you're close to everything, and and if you're not - there's a metro stop where practically all the metro lines converge, so transportation-wise it's a great location. Staff is friendly and helpful, it's clean and has kitchen and all the pans you need for cooking (I saw an Asian girl who cooked a 2 course dinner there!). Just at a point when you think the place is ideal comes a bang - it absolutely lacks atmosphere, no vibe at all:(

One of the best hostel we have stayed at. amazing location absolutely central to everything. Great staff however they could get a little more information about local sights. All facilities were excellent, showers don't leak if you just pull the curtain across all the way, It's not hard. Only thing lacking was the atmosphere but I'm sure when its tourist season it would be different.

Our stay at Captain Budapest Hostel was incredible. We were a big group and since the first moment they tried to make everything as simple as possible. Always willing to attend us and ready for whatever we might need. There was always someone at the reception 24h, and every morning we had coffee before leaving the hostel and it was totally free. There were many bathrooms and the rooms were clean, tidy and big enough. It was a great experience and we all loved it! Thank you very much!

All the reviews you read about the bathroom showers flooding the floors are right. I seemed to be able to shower without flooding, but most people could not, and so the bathroom floors were ALWAYS gross. The rooms are large and nice, but the common room is on the other side of the hostel in a corner by itself, so no one was ever in there.

This is a new hostel right in the centre of budapest. Great location in the square. Rooms and common areas were really clean. Appears to be a problem with the sinks which sometimes leak and leaves the floors in the bathrooms wet. Not sure if this is just a problem as they have just opened. As the hostel gets more popular the overall atmosphere will improve.

Location is unbelievably cool , beds are very cosy and big , free lockers under the beds are super safe and big enough for a huge trunk! .Bathrooms are very clean and also very nice , like in a hotel! Staff was very helpful and friendly , the hostel offers a lot of fun things to do in the city. I will definitely come back next year, a real must try hostel in this beautiful city! Loved it!

Awesome place to stay! I was worried because it is so new ( they are still under some slight construction) we started with only one night and stayed 4! Great value for your money. Huge kitchen that lends a great place to meet people and start a night out at the ruin pubs! Very clean facilities. It never felt overly busy in the morning for showering or getting ready. Great hostel!

shower room need to be remodeled. too small shower space & flooded the bathroom floor after showering no matter how careful you are with shower curtain you have. it is impossible not to be flooded. definitely need fix.

I stayed in a private room 5 nights with my brother in September. This hostel is great! The location is fantastic, everything is within walking distance! The staff were very friendly, and it's great that they provide towels! The drainage in the bathroom could be improved slightly (floor flooding from showers) but other than that there were plenty of bathrooms to use. We were also able to get maps and directions back to the airport. The stairs were a bit scary though.Great location & great price!

Staff were great, atmosphere and location perfect. Construction work was not advertised on the hostelworld, which was a nuisance, especially in the mornings. Showers leaked everywhere making it quite unsafe. Toilet paper needs to be replaced more often and bathrooms to be cleaned for leakages.

in short: perfect :)

This hostel had everything that I need as a traveller. It is clean.The beds are firm. Showers have excellent pressure. The kitchen (open plan+modern) allows you to prepare your own food and is well maintained by staff. Tea&coffee are provided. There are spacious lockers in the rooms, a computer with internet in reception. The staff are friendly and helpful and as far as I could see, they bent over backwards to ensure all was well.

wifi didn't reach my dorm room but this place was good and clean and new. No complaints on this except everything is fake new. But that's just a small quip. No real complaints for this one. Great location and all.

If you want to have a nice, unique and quiet Hostel in the middle of the city, this is where you should go. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is just awesome. It has everything you need and is quiet big. The community room is very nice as well. The staff helped us with all our questions and were really friendly. I would book this hostel again and again.,
