Really was just a bed for us before we flew out. Had a double room which was lovely, very good value too. Best location you can get, close to everything you want to see. Only complaint would be we shared a bathroom between everyone in the hostel and there weren't any mirrors/ extra sinks to get ready with. But fine for what it is, nothing special. Better party hostels in Budapest.

Great staff. Loved the location, really close to the Oktogon station. There isn't much of a real kitchen or general hang out area. Although there was an area in the actual room.

I stayed in the hostel for 2 nights in 2 different locations. Apparently they have a new part of the hostel. The new one smelled with paint and had no wifi and no kettle. Guess it was taken care of by now. The old one had 1 bathroom 1 shower and 1 toilet for everyone. There was a queue in the morning to the toilet. Not fun. The staff (Zita and Julia) were awesome. They did all they could to make me more comfortable, thank you ladies!

This place is always fantastic. Stayed here a couple times now; staff is really friendly, location is easy to get to for the train station or the local sights, and the group of travelers is really nice and eclectic — not a bunch of 20-somethings who just came here to party. Always a pleasant home away from home.

This place is great. It's quite small, but nice. Although, there's only two showers, so if they're both full and someone's taking forever, you might have to wait. But other than that, no complaints. Location is good. Kitchen is well equipped.

I stayed few nights and this is not something special but OK. It's located about 15mins walk to the centre and very safe area. It was good that the hostel is really close to Metro Station. I stayed in 8 beds dorm and the room was more than big enough with security locker. There were only two showers for everyone and one night I had to wait to take shower for more than one hour. Also the other night there was no one at reception for whole night. It's nice if you wanna have a rest as it's quiet.

The hostel is ok, but not much more than that. Pretty small so if you had big luggage like ourselves it was kind of a struggle coming and going. Location was good, walking distance from everything, but considering the size of the city you can say that of anywhere around. Staff was helpful those 2 times we had to ask for something, but other than that minded their own business which I'm still not sure if it's a plus or a downside. Stayed 3 nights, would recommend if on a budget.

The hostel is near from metro station and located in Oktogon. It is easy to find the hostel. The receptionists are very kind and friendly. Next time, when I am back to Budapest, I will stay there again and try to visit bar near hostel :)

A nice place, definitely value for money. Great that one can leave the luggage after check-out. The only disadvantage are very small pillows ))

Such a cozy little hostel! Not big at all, size wise, but the atmosphere was perfect. A little common area and huge rooms. It was a bit difficult to find but we managed. Also, make sure to email the time you are arriving!! It is not 24 hour front desk, but they accommodate quite nicely.

The staff was very friendly. The shower was warm and the towels were clean. During the day you could make a cup of tea. Really nice hostel! :-)
