We had a good time here. Its not an average hostel because it is in the home were helena and some family members live. But there were 2 seperated rooms with beds and 1 big bathroom. The price for 8 euros per night was great for what we got and the location is excellent. 10 min walk from keleti station and the city centre.


Don't expect a typical hostel, but as the name suggests it is a guesthouse: Helena has a couple of bedrooms where she host backpackers and travellers. Considered the price, what we were given was perfect: a comfortable bed and a clean bathroom. The position is pretty good, in the Jewish area, and well connected by means of the metro. If you don't look for super hostels it is really recommended.


Nice and cheap place, close to train and bus stations, for a small trip to Budapest a good choice to stay there

I stayed there only 1 night but everything was great. Helen is a lovely woman, very nice and happy to help you with visiting the city etc. I would really recomend the hostel to all of my friends!


good location but bad rooms and there was a very bad smell. the owner was very kind


Helena is the sweetest woman! She was so welcoming and accommodating and happy to point you in the right direction of activities to do in Budapest


I don't complain about this guesthouse, overall. It's the cheapest option for lodging in Budapest at this moment, and the family is kind, amiable and helpful. The only detail: shower room's door is damaged, its lock needs to be repaired. Unfortunately, there is no air conditioner for the Summer season; but I believe it's more comfortable during the Winter. I hope to return soon to Budapest and to get hosted at Helena Guesthouse. Thank you so much for your service :-)


Comfortable place perfectly situated in the city center, all the service covered with a charming hostage. Highly recommended.
