Me and my boyfriend had our own apartment. When we arrived the staff was really nice and showed us everything we needed. We also used the free laundry since we stayed for 5 nights and that was good. Unfortunately we had to change the apartment after one night to another one. Both apartments were really nice though and we dont have anything to complain about.
Jack the Manager is a nice person although one of his assistants is rude with guests and doesn't speak English through understandable level. Everything is 'excellent' but atmosphere is just 'good' like the rest of cheap acommodation in Hungary since it's not cheerful as well as in other countries; perhaps this place should be called 'Friendly Guesthouse' instead of 'friends hostel' because it's too small so you cannot make friends with other guests easily, tight common areas make it complicated.
I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this hostel! When we arrived, we were happily greeted by one of the owners, who consistently over our 6 days, was friendly & always put forth the effort to take time out of his day & ask how our day has been, what sights we saw, etc. The kitchen had everything one could need for a longer stay, the location was perfect (near a metro stop & also near a tram stop that runs 24 hours a day!) & the dorm we stayed in was huge! Will stay there again, for sure!
This is a great hostel to stay in. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the facilities are clean, and it is in a good location in the city.

I went with a friend for a weekend trip. The location of the hostel is in a safe area, very close to pubs and bars. Walking distance to the river. The hostel was cozy, safe and nice. It's not a party hostel, it is something quiet.

The Friend hostel has an excellent location in the heart of Budapest. The metro station, bus station and the tram station are really close and you can reach them within 1-2 minutes. The rooms are well equipped and clean. The hostel deserve its name, because the staff was very friendly and helpful. We spend nice 5 days there.
great hostel, helpful staff, clean bathrooms, central location, nice decoration.
Great hostel, exactly what I would expect, feels very comfortable and receptionist always remembered my name which was nice and made me feel welcomed. Thank you for pleasant stay!
Excellent location and walking distance to metro station. The hostel provided clear direction in getting from the airport to the hostel. I love the really clean Room & toilets.However, a little noisy (noises from passing trains) and the kitchen is too tiny for comfortable cooking, so we decided not to do any cooking. Despite the noise, I have a pleasant stay.
It is almost impossible to find because it is not signed and half an hour walk from the station. I was impressed with the facilities and the cleanliness. The rooms are enormous, the kitchen is super clean and the bathrooms are beautiful. However, the owner of the property is very rude and intimidating. One day I returned in the middle of the day to find he had been through my bag and private belongings and repacked it, and then moved it all into a cupboard so he could "clean".Simply inexcusable
I loved this hostel! It was like an apartment turned into a hostel so had a very welcoming feeling. The staff was so friendly and spent time recommending things to do out of love for their city. The hostel was about a 15-20 minute walk to most attractions, but the atmosphere, cleanliness, and security in the hostel was well worth the walk. The bathrooms were so nice, for sure the best bathrooms you can find in a hostel!
