Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff, large rooms and lockers, nice common area/kitchen. It is not a party hostel, but a nice and quiet place - just what I was looking for. The wifi did not work well in the rooms, but that was never a big problem, since it worked fine in the common room. At the time, there was only one shower available, but now there are two. I enjoyed my stay there!


Staffs are very friendly and extremely helpful. Hostel is very clean and quite, nice and cozy. I enjoyed my stay here.


Staff were friendly & accommodating, rooms were large however there was only 4 toilets & 2 showers for the entire hostel. One shower was large however the other was really small & the floor was always wet with nowhere to get changed without standing in water. Location was great, easy walk to most places & not far from public transport either. Cheap hostel so if you are on a budget it's a good stay, just try to use the larger shower by reception if you can.


Quiet place. Staffs were nice.


The hostel is easy to find and the location is fantastic. worth for the money you pay. good stay in budapest.

Great hostel, especially for the low price. Spacious rooms and lockers, good location but at the same time fairly quiet, and nice staff. Wifi doesn't work in rooms, but it makes the common room more common.


The hostel is in a great location near 2 underground stations so that was a definite plus. The rooms were nice but the beds were very uncomfortable. We felt all the staff apart from one of the women were quite rude to us and we didn't like that at all. The atmosphere of the hostel is appalling so if you're the kind of person who likes to make friends in the hostel don't stay here!


Brilliant hostel in a great location in Pest near the river. The rooms were really nice and a perfect temperature. The communal area was good and there was a great atmosphere. The staff were all really friendly. I will be using this hostel again in the future and would recommend it to everyone


Spent two nights here so that I could go to sziget and it was a lovely hostel run by lovely people. All the staff were helpful, it was easy to get around the city because it was close to the metro and the room had a fan so it wasn't too hot!
