It was difficult to understand who was the staff in the Fifth Hostel; they are really friendly but they were always lying on the couch and really noisy during the night ! The showers and restrooms were awful for want of upkeep ! But the hostel has a really good location to visit touristic places

We checked into the main hostel, it seemed nice, the staff was friendly, but then they told us we were going to a separate part of the hostel down the street. It was in a dilapitated, old building. Once you get in the building, anyone can just walk into the hostel and there are no lockers to keep your valuables. It was pretty dirty, puddles of dirty water on the bathroom floors, the showers had brown gunk and the beds were very uncomfortable. Every move made them squeak, so we were up all night.

The hostel is perfectely located and the staff is really helpful! We arrived already at 6am and were allowed to crash on the couch in the common room. The place is really clean and has a cosy atmosphere. The only negative point for some might be that you'll have to share the shower room with the other gender and the showers are only seperated by a curtain, but if you won't mind that the hostel is a definite yes!

Don't expect all mod cons when staying here, but at 10 euro a night this place is one of the best value hostels in Budapest, the cheapest actually. Me and my friends arrived and at first didn't like that we were in a different building (4th floor no lift), but when we did get there the room was big and accommodated all of us. Staff were friendly and so we're other guests. Overall a great location for sights in the city centre and metro links, and bars and major clubs all walkable disdistance.

nice hostel with extra location

Excellent location, Excellent facilities and they were all really clean. The staff were kind, but there wasn't always a staff member on site so if you need to check in late or something, I suggest letting them know first. Rooms were spacious and clean.

The hostel is too crowded, with around 40 people sharing 2 bathrooms. So hygiene of the toilet is poor, with hair, toilet papers and dirt everywhere. Security is not really good, only 2 keys available for each room. No lockers. Atmosphere is bad. Noisy and stuffy in the midnight. Staff is not really helpful too.

So we booked fifth hostel a month in advance, got to the hostel and they'd given our beds to someone else blaming hostel world and booking.com for a double booking. Then they chucked us into the staff room at a hostel a block away that was 10 flights up stairs in poor conditions... Not what we paid for. Also the chick at the reception was seriously unhelpful and acted as though we were such a bourdon on her life..

They moved us to another hostel which is very noisy and dirty. The staff is nice but not helpful. There is no reception in this hostel. No computer for check in too. There are only 2 keys for one room with 6 people. My friend needs to stay in another room but she doesn't has a key. The toilet and bathroom is so dirty. No toilet papers and always a "river" in it. And it is smelly!
