Staff was super friendly and very clear on teaching me about the city and things to do. They had different types of parties lined up for each night which was awesome and very fun. Everyone was extremely welcoming and even after having to check out due to lack of availability (my fault for not booking ahead of time), they still invited me back for the family dinner and to hang out. Nights were quiet and allow you to get sleep, if that's what you're into. I would certainly come back.

This was, by far, the best hostel I have ever stayed at as a solo traveller. It has a wonderfully homey vibe and incredible staff who make you feel like part of the family as soon as you walk through the door. They have a perfect mix of fantastic nights out and a cozy, quiet, chill vibe at the hostel in the evenings if you choose to stay in. I cannot recommend this place highly enough! My only suggestion is: however long you plan on staying in Budapest, give yourself time to extend.

Excellent hostel. I was there for just a short time but the staff and guests were friendly, welcoming and entertaining. Great place to meet some really cool people. I will definitely be back!

Staff are wonderful characters and they make this place fantastic! Be ready to go out and party after family dinners (one of the best parts) when super fun events are planned every night. You can stay in at night if tired, but it's much better to take advantage of these quite cheap night life options. Great bang for your buck here and amazing family atmosphere. Would definitely go back!!

Great spot, very comfortable. Staff are incredible and defiantly know how to party. Awesome atmosphere to meet people. Place is cleaned multiple times a day which is nice to see. Free "all you can eat" eggs bread and milk which is awesome. Family dinner each night is cheap, and always a great home cooked meal which I loved doing. The best thing about this place is defiantly the staff, who are always down to punch a snowy with the guests. Would definitely come again if I had the opportunity.

I had so much fun at this hostel I ended up extending my stay twice! The staff are some of the most friendly & welcoming people I've met. They really went out of their way to make everyone's stay the best it could be. The facilities were clean & provided everything you needed- they even had free eggs & bread for breakfast & family dinner every night. The atmosphere was great & there were different events going on each night so it was easy to meet people. One of the best hostels I've been to!

This is a party hostel! Don't book if you're not interested in socialising and partying. That being said this is a great place to stay as a solo traveller. Easy to meet new people. Staff are friendly and will generally help with any queries but because it is a party hostel the staff often join in on the fun and may forget to attend to your requests, will just have to give them multiple friendly reminders. Beds are super comfortable. Bathroom facilities are a little average with concertina doors.

Best hostel I have ever stayed in. Convenient location in a beautiful city, extremely welcoming and fun staff, free Wi-Fi, lockers, padlocks, towels. Very clean. Ideal place to meet people. Feels like being part of a family, living in family home. Wild parties 7 days of the week. Everyone goes out together. Awesome time staying here and I really miss it. Memories that will last the rest of my life.

This was my first experience with a party hostel and I couldn't be happier. It was quiet and clean but had all the benefits of being associated with a sister party hostel. The organized bar crawls and events were a lot of fun and the staff made you feel like family. My only regret was not staying longer.

It couldn't have been better. They make SURE you have an awesome time in Budapest. Thanks guys!

Giggles is a really amazing guy who takes care of the staff! My boyfriend got really drunk ( standard for Budapest hey! ) but you could tell giggles genuinely cares and brought him home! He's a really fun guy who loves to party but also cares to! That's a rare find! The rest of the staff were really lovely to!!

Seems like a good hostel but definately stay at the other one, it's much bigger and a lot more people with a bar and more social space. This hostel is basically an apartment turned into a hostel and although it's pretty cool it's not that great for meeting people as the hostel only has around 20 beds and a living area to socialise. The staff are alright but they're just other travellers who also live in the hostel.

Literally the best hostel I've stayed at! Staff are awesome, beds are comfy and the great atmosphere is evident as soon as you walk in. Perfect for solo travellers. I stayed a week and would stay a month if I could!

If you're tossing up staying here or not - just do it, you will have the time of your life! I've never felt more at home at a place away from home. Apple, Elly, Shitzu and Giggles will make sure you're always having too much fun, and will make it very hard for you to leave - I booked two nights and stayed for a week. Definitely do the escape rooms, the boat party, and caving if you can, you'll have memories and friends to last a lifetime.
