Wonderful staff. Super friendly. Great location. Very comfortable.


Great experience!! The staff really made the diffence, not only did she help with with any questions we had regarding the city, transports and etc but thanks to her we enjoyed typical food and drinks from Budapest. The atmosphere is really nice and the location could not be better, as soon as you turn around the corner, you arrive at Andrassy Street.


Hostel was really really good, great facilities, everything we needed for the weekend. The staff were particularly helpful with gave loads of good advice and suggestions for where to go and things to do. Not the hostels fault but I'd avoid the magic thermal baths pool party unless you're a group of ten 18 year old lads. Head to the ruin bars instead, they were a unique Budapest experience and the atmosphere was a lot more enjoyable.

Friendly staff at check-in and out. They gave out lots of advice on where to go/eat/do. Overall a positive experience


The location and staff are amazing, it is very close to everything. What a like the most was the staff, they were always helpful and treat us pretty good! My only complain is that the bathroom was extremely cold even with the heather on.


Good hostel. It has free food provided . Also, their staff are nice and helpful. I really think you dont need a padlock in this hostel
