Great all round hostel. Only minor criticism is that the floor boards make it to be as they creak with every step.

The staff are really nice and make you feel like at home! It's a small hostel and it has a design like a house, so you can feel really comfort at there. I arrived unexpectedly two days earlier and all other hostels were full as well as this one too because of the Sziget Festival, but they tried their best to help me, to find extra bed or a sofa for me. Staff are all so nice and willing to talk, I really had an enjoyable time there, and made my trip in Budapest wonderful! :)

I didn't really enjoy this hostel at all. There has been a heat wave in Europe this summer, they had no air conditioning and were charging something like 5 euro a night for a fan, I personally think that a simple comfort like this should be included! It's also a very small hostel, I didn't really meet anyone during my stay here. The staff was friendly but didn't leave a lasting impression on my travels. I wouldn't return to this hostel in the future.

you have to pay extra for a fan, but the hostel itself was well located and a friendly atmosphere

Pros: The hostel has a good place. You can walk a little to get into city center or take subway. It was clean and secure. Our private ensuite room was very nice. Bed was comfortable. Kitchen was ok. There was a microwave which I didn't see in many hostels Cons: Our room is next to hostel's another dorm. There was only a door between. You can hear every noise from across. It takes away somr privacy. Kitchen wasn't so big. Sink and countrt can be used by max 2 people at once.

loved the hostel. great atmosphere.. great for solo travelers because it's easy to meet ppl. FEMALES: beware of the male receptionist. he's very inappropriate and creepy. asked of he could "scrub my body" in the shower. asked my friend if she wanted to sleep in his room. very uncomfortable. he also kept listening in on our conversations. then wondered why we got up after he sat down. he shouldn't be working there.

We stayed in the loft and it was incredibly hot - the choice was simply between sleeping naked in a dorm room or die! Besides this a great hostel - small, nicely furnished and great staff who works too many hours though. Made our stay really nice (besides the heat, air condition // a fan in the loft would make a huge difference!!)

Wow! I moved to this hostel after a terrible experience at another one in Budapest. Norbert and Luca (Lutia) are very helpful, friendly, and nice. The atmosphere is much more relaxed than other hostels, and it has good interior decorating and more of a home feel than other impersonal hostels. Staying at the 10 bed-dorm was actually not that bad of an experience - save for a group of annoying recent Spanish high school graduates. I can say no bad things except that I wish there were more br's.

Fantastic clean and friendly hostel! I left my wallet and keys here in my locker and Norbi and his boss ensured their safe return to me all the way home to the UK. I could not have asked for a better service than what these guys provided. Faith in humanity restored!

I had a fantastic time here. Great staff, good location, although it's a bit hard to find. There's no big sign marking it, just a small sign on the door buzzer, so pay close attention to the address. It's a bit of a walk from some of the main sites of the city, but it's close to lots of restaurants and the big indoor market. The staff had some good advice and recommendations for things to do and places to eat, and they were all wonderfully friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

Really nice hostel. Loved the decoration/layout. Not a party hostel but super nice to sit and chill in front of the TV or chat to people. Good location and staff too.

Very nice staff and facilities. They really made us feel like home.the only complaint would be only one proper shower, everything was perfect other than that

The only thing I didn't enjoy was the motion sensor lights in the stairwell. I got buzzed into the building and the interior courtyard was pitch black until you started walking and then motion sensor lights would turn on. That was really creepy and uncomfortable the first time I walked in at night, but other than that I loved it.

The hostel was definitely more than I was expecting for the price we paid. My friend and I arrived about an hour later than we expected due to bus issues but the girl who checked us in was concerned for us and stayed until we arrived safely. The facilities were extremely clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. We were given many maps and brochures for activities around Budapest and the staff and other guests gave us many suggestions for food and drinks. Overall 10/10 would return.

The staff is very friendly and the place is very nice. The instructions on how to get there are perfect, but the only thing is that the Hostel sign outside the building is pretty small and is hard to see/find. Probably if you mention that the entrance is almost in front of an ice-cream place or next to a Chinese restaurant, something like that, would be easier for guest to find.
