This is an absolutely brilliant hostel and I'd highly recommend it! The location is very central and close to a metro stop. Judit was a wonderful hostess and Made us feel at home. She also took the time to tell us about the city and things we could do. The facilities were also excellent and you had everything you could need. Overall, an excellent hostel and we will definitely be staying there when we go back to Budapest!

Really friendly staff, gave us lots of advice for places to visit and where the locals go for their beer (which is soooooo cheap - at least for an Englishman!) The hostel is quite small, through a few locks and an elevator so probably as secure as they come. If you get a roadside room (which I think is 2 out of 3) you get a nice view. It's very close to the bars without being right in it (so no noisy drunks!) They also sell tickets to the baths and caving at no extra cost

The hostel was fantastic; very spacious and comfortable. We really loved our room and being in such a central location. the owner was extremely helpful. She went the extra mile to help us when we had trouble booking trains.

Fantastic little guesthouse in the center of the city! The lady who took care of us was incredibly helpful, best place I stayed this year! Would stay at Gaia in a heartbeat. - Chris, Ireland

Great staff and location. Very helpful with information, maps and whatnot. We had a private room, which was nice, clean and a good deal. Only issue was the heat, as there is no a/c which can be rough in summer. Maybe provide larger fans in the rooms? Also, the area is a bit of a party area, which we were not into. Overall though, good value for the money and nice hostel. Definitely recommend.

The place was awesome, staff was so good and everything was beyond the expectations... The only thing we should improve would be the the fan in the room, being summer and in big room the medium size fan that they gave us wasn't enough

We really appreciate the hostel and also Judit, the hoster. She is very helpful and friendly. The only point that we didn't like was the entrance, it was quite dark and make us a bit afraid when we arrived late at the hostel. But without counting on this aspect we highly recommend the hostel.

You must strictly on the number of the building coz you might missed it, from the outside you might not recognized that the hostel was there. Even the building was quite old but there was and elevation and the hostel was cute and sweet. We liked it a lot. the room also perfect, there was many of plugs in the room, Judit was incredibly welcoming, the kitchen stuff work properly. the bath room was full of free stuff u r able to use.
