Me & my friend were travelling when we booked the Ginkgo Hostel for our stay in Budapest. It was a little hard to find, but once we were there we were pleased. We met some really great people at the hostel during our stay and the staff were friendly also. We loved Budapest so much we decided to stay an extra night. The staff were extremely accommodating and there was no problem with arranging an additional stay. Once again, met some fantastic people to hang with which made this place so great!

The location is very good, in the center of Budapest ; The staff is highly kind and helpful ; The hostel is always very clean and quiet ; The kitchen is poor but it is told in the presentation of the hostel, so no surprise ; The only bad thing is about the beds that are highly unconmfortable.

I stayed at the hostel in early May of 2014. The location is excellent. The staff was very helpful and spoke English well. It was quiet which I appreciated. The only thing that I didn't like was lack of sink in the kitchen.


Very nice and functional hostel with a friendly and very helpful staff. Location is excellent and most traditional tourist sights is within walking distance. The toilet/shower capacity is low. Kitchen facilities are limited and breakfast is not included.


It's in a real good location, IN the city centre, the staff is really nice, and is cheap.


The double room is quite big and it is a pleasure when the owner is working because she gives great advice on where to go.
