Very nice staff, very friendly and welcome people.


We were extremely welcomed at CBK! The staff was very friendly and quite helpful, the location just perfect and easily reachable, close to the best sights in Budapest. We would gladly stay at the same hostel any time!


Beautiful please and service! Clean and cozzy. I liked the welcome shot :)


The hostel has a great location and access to all major stuff. The staff was friendly and always helpful if you needed something. Like all the information that they provide on arrival and they're organize events. The rooms have individual lookers and well equipped.


Very difficult to find, but once found, very convenient to get everywhere. The shower is untouchable, but the lounge was very comfortable, the staff was very nice and using the bathroom was never a problem because no one dared shower.

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.
