Very nice host. However, her home which you stay in is horrible smelling with people constantly smoking a room over from you. It is uncomfortable to come and go as you need to walk through the room with her son watching tv and carmen smoking each time. I wouldn't recommend.

Very filthy guesthouse. Kitchen is very dirty. We arrived late at night and we were not allowed to use the kitchen then. Also there is just one shower for 9 beds. It is difficult to locate the hostel as it is not listed on maps.


I had a great time at helena's house. She's a very kind and helpful person. The room was clean and comfortable. From The guest house is easy to walk to the center.

Helen is really lovely and makes you feel really welcome. The rooms are really well cared for and the bathroom is very big! I would recommend anyone staying here as I had a fantastic stay especially for the price I paid. It's also extremely central and very easy to walk to the main part of Budapest. Also many shops and restaurants are near by. I had a lovely time staying here.


It's a flat that belongs to Helena, a lovely old lady who's always trying to help her guests with her broken english. The facilities were better than I anticipated, kinda comfy. With the other guests I felt sort of a connection, not that we talked that much but a feeling of security. 10/10 would stay again.


Located in the central of the city Helena Guesthouse was very neat, clean and friendly. The building itself was beautiful with an atrium which we liked a lot. Ms. Helena had a lovely small dog (didn't bark once) with whom we liked to play. Wifi available inall the rooms at full connectivity (a thing hard to come by in hostels). Overall totally recommend to stay


If you are just looking for a place to sleep, it's a good and very cheap place. It isn't very hostel-like.


Awful smell in the front entrance. The beds are fairly comfortable and the rooms and bathroom are pretty clean. Its only good point is how cheap it is.


The location is perfect, but is not a hostel is the apartment of Helena but to be honest she's great and for the money you pay is also okay. I recommend this. If is only to sleep


Absolutely loved Helena and her house! Wasn't what we were expecting at all but it was great location (walking distance from all the attractions) great food near bye . Not the best place to go if you want to meet new people as it is a guest house but I was with 3 other girls who thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was really clean and tidy and the bathroom was cleaned daily . Spotless , will defo stay there again and recomend it to all my friends!!


The guesthouse is actually a flat of carmen, an eldery, very friendly woman. It is really good located in Buda and there are loads of bars just around the corner. But you should know what expects you: when you get into the flat, you walk through the living- and bedroom of carmen, then you get into one room with three beds. If you walk through this room you get into another room with 6 beds, and from there you get to the bathroom. Its a bit smelly & not very quiet or clean, but cheap.
