Location is good, rooms are quite noisy due to the isolation, get's worst if you are staying next to the toilets. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Excellent little hostel! You don't know what to expect when you're walking up the long staircase but you walk into a quirky looking fun hostel with very friendly staff and just a stones throw from the big sights and excellent night life. I'd recommend highly
staff was knowledgable and quite helpful. Room was large with good storage and they provided goods locks. was quiet and excellent location. Easy to get to tram or metro.
The staff were lovely. It was clean. The location was fantastic. Couldn't fault it on any level.
Nice hostel but when I was there it had very little atmosphere. Clean and comfy. The girl on the desk in the day was pretty moody, though helpful when I asked.
Everyone was very nice.

There're two bathrooms, didn't like the one i used, couldn't find a place to station the shower head. The other one seemed nice but was always occupied… the place is nice and cozy with friendly and helpful staff, also a great location in the city centre.
The staff where really helpful with informations about places to see and even warned me about daylight timezone change before departing or I would definitely have lost my transport. Gabrielle from staff ( hope is not mispelled ) was sympathetic with ever dumb question I was doing and always with a smile on face.
Great hostel ! Safe choice when going to budapest ! great value, the staff is awesome and the location is as good as it gets !

It's hard to rate this place because everything in Budapest is cheap, and even though you really are getting a good deal, you get that at basically every hostel in Budapest. I stayed at three different hostels in Budapest (here, Carpe Noctem, and Big Fish), and I'd rate this one lowest. Some of the staff I met were really great, but the girl there during the day makes you feel like she's doing you a favor by talking to you. Atmosphere is also too subdued. See my reviews for the other hostels.
Good hostel, friendly staff and well localized.
perfect location, friendly and useful staffs
