If you want to experience anarchy, this is your hostel. If you want to visit Budapest, run away from this place. -The room was ok, the toilet a bit dirty, but acceptable. Quite different from the ones in the photos. -No one seemed to be in charge. People played annoying music until 2 am. The staff at night were asleep, did not know English and was uncooperative. -In the morning you could find dozens of empty alcohol cans and bottles in the corridors. -Kitchen uncomplete. -No credit card.


My stay was very good, but I wanted to sleep while there was live music played in hostel. If you like stuff like that, this is a hostel for you. There was really, really hot and there were no funs at all in my room.

Nice place close to everything, during the year is student dormitory. We was in 4 friends, nice times there!great atmosphere, a night spanish band played in the hostel! and later all the hostel went out to party! There is no things to cook!only the fire and a fridge, no pots cutlery The building is really old externally but inside it's ok!


very nice crew, very good security who whants to help you find a shop. very nice and big room. Near the public transport. I recommend this hostel to everyone.


This is a school dorm turned hostel for the summer. The staff aren't particularly invested - helpful but only the bare minimum. Got a private room (which was pretty awesome) when I booked a dorm, but I'm traveling solo and the hostel was a ghost town, hard to meet others. Bathrooms are just passable with moldy shower curtains. The kitchen doesn't have a single plate or utensil so don't count on making any meals. I checked out a day early.


Nice hostel, the owner was very nice---he even gave us back the money for one night when we decided to leave budapest one day earlier!

We have stayed in the hostel only for 1 night security is ok. But rooms cleanliness is varible our room is really bad but our friends stayed 1 floor below us and their rooms is good also have found some bugs in the beds. Also the buildings itself is really old and from the outside it looks like it has survived from a nuclear explosion.


There were kitchens on every floor with a full set up but there was no cutlery/plates/saucepans etc so that was annoying. You get a small fridge in your room which is good. The showers and toilets are fine. Rooms have no air con or fans or anything so were boiling. The staff tried to help but didn't really know the touristy information we've come to expect from going to other hostels. The location is close ish to the railway station, but far from everything else.


Deserted nuclear wasteland environemnt. BUT very good value for money and close to where you want to be and very useful google translated door staff.


The hostel and its personnel is amazing! We could imagine a better stay in Budapest. Thank you!
