Love this hostel! Best hostel I've stayed at in europe. Friendly staff, great location and cozy place. One thing I would comment on is making sure the guest knows the prices and making them pay when they get there, I stayed here three days and didn't pay until the end of my visit because I asked to pay, also the price for my first two nights were almost half as for my third one and it didn't make sense to why. Prices should be discuss at the beginning that way there aren't misunderstandings.

Excellent experience at this hostel. Staff were the best I have dealt with. I arrived after an overnight train. Room was ready when I arrived, and was offered fresh coffee. Rooms/bathrooms/common area were always clean. Lockers were big enough for my backpack. The hostel itself is very secure. A 10 minute walk to the river/shops and around the same to the Jewish quarter (restaurants/bars). St. Stephen's Basilica (and Christmas markets) are 5 minutes away. There is a nearby supermarket too.

Great basic hostel, arrived and straight away met mates that I explored with for most of the time I was in Budapest! This isnt a party hostel but has a nice chilled atmosphere. Staff and location are great also. Deffo recommend.

cozy and very welcoming hostel, felt like home immediately! super helpful staff as well. too bad theres no laundry service ( it was only for the staffs' use). very well located, close to the metro station and a lot of bars and restaurants around in walkable distance.

stayed here 8 nights, love budapest and this hostel is really great location wise. in the middle of everything but quiet enough to chill out. staff were awesome and really helpful. the hostel is more like and apartment than a typical hostel and the free tea and coffee was a nice touch which i definetly took advantage of a lot. will most probably be back in budaest in future and would stay here again for sure

The hostel was amazing, really good location, lovely and helpful staff:) only bad thing to mention was the cold temperatures in the room (autumn time) and the room got pretty noicy in the morning because of the reception that is behind the dorm door. Would definitely recommend!

Perhaps better communication of the single apartment style accommodation, this came as a surprise to us, however we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Any contact we had with staff was very positive!

Really good hostel - clean and tidy. Slight concern for the minimal showering facilities, but wasn't too much of an issue.
