Hi :) We had a great time at your hostel. Thank you for everything. Everything was great! Great location, really clean, really nice rooms and really nice and helpful staff. Couldn't wish for more. Katharina, Eva and Tine

I just stayed a few nights with my 5 years old daughter. Despiste the hostel.com advertised it as more of a party like places I could not expect more kindness and attention towards her than that I received. The staff is very kind in general indeed and were helpful in every way they possibly could. Extra kudos for the welcome drink "pálinka" which is a local and rather strong but delicious brandy of spirit. Don't forget to wait for the staff to drink with you! The area is good too shops around.
Such a lovely hostel - so friendly and homely as it's quite small. Location is perfect and staff so friendly with loads of recommendations. So easy to meet new people and go out with them etc.
location is perfect, the staff were friendly and helpful and all gave us tips on where and when to go, all staff were well informed an they even gave us maps for krakow our next stop, kitchen facilities were excellent. would stay again!
What a great hostel! They've created a little slice of home in Budapest and done it with smiles on their faces. Facilities on par with eastern Europe. Staff go out of their way to help you. Only warning, don't go on the tips only pubcrawl...one of the most poorly organized ever...choose the paid option!
This is the first hostel I've stayed at which felt like an actual hostel (my nan use to tell me about hostels from when she traveled). Most places I've been to have felt more like cheap hotels. But this place was cosy, near the river and had a really friendly atmosphere. They also let me borrow towels and padlocks without putting down a deposit which was a really nice change.
All round decent and practical, nothing special but does the job and pretty good location
A very nice and friendly hostel! Location is great and the staff are really friendly! The rooms are big and clean. I enjoyed my stay here. Everynight they offer great fun activities. So if you are there on Saturday definitly do the Sparty!! Great fun
Excellent place. Can't fault it.

the receptionist was soooo nice! the best welcome have received traveling. it feels more like youre staying in someones apartment. which i enjoyed. the rooms dont have locks but they do have lockers.it was a really cool experience and i enjoyed the people as well
Hostel is in an apartment, nice bathrooms really good location
clean, fair location. a lot of bed were not bunk beds so that was great. staff friendly.
The hostel is small, so it is not as anonymous as the bigger ones. Very good if you travel by yourself. The staff was nice and helpful. Had a great time there.
Very friendly and helpful staff, let lots of other people in relaxed living area. I think I was perhaps just spoilt by the very cheap hostels in Croatia.
This was a great smaller hostel and super easy to meet people! Since there is only 3 main rooms it gives a really homey feel and also the receptionist was awesome and answered all of my questions and concerns and was willing to explain things multiple times! Really good! It was a bit hard to find because it is on the first floor of the building and the door to go into the hostel is not very clearly marked but otherwise great!
Is one of the best hostel I've stayed at. The staff was super helpful with direction and restaurant recommendations! Lovely atmosphere and is very quiet during the night. I would definately come back!
We stayed in one of the apartments here and it was great! Location was good, facilities were excellent - wifi, fully equipped kitchen, clean bathroom and all very spacious. Staff were very helpful upon arrival and helped us with any issues we had with the apartment almost immediately! However the air conditioning was RUBBISH, it did not cool the apartment down at all and there was no other way to cool the room down as the apartment windows opened onto an indoor courtyard rather than outside.
Nice location, close to metro and tram stations, and only a few minutes walk to the chain bridge. However a bit of noisy at night if you are in a room facing the street, cause there are many restaurants and cafés around it. Staffs are nice and helpful, wifi works also in rooms. I stayed in a 4 beds dorm, but there were only two lockers, which is definitely a down side for people checking in late. Overall, not a bad place to stay for 1 or 2 nights.
GREAT hostel to stay in if you're looking to meet people! so friendly and social. Staff lovely and helpful, they have tickets for most events(sparties, pub crawls etc) so it's easy to buy from them. Great location, main bar and restaurant area, but not loud. Free tea and coffee was great! Bathrooms: shower doesn't stay up, you have to hold it, but they all worked really well! 24 hour reception was great if you forgot your key. I would DEFINITELY stay there again, really great.
nice apartment, very central. Staff was helpful but tried selling tickets for events every time you speak to them, which was a bit annoying.
