Friendly staff, excellent location and good facilities. Very cheap too!
Very nice atmosphere! The staff is superfriendly, outgoing and helpful, the rooms are very artistic and the whole hostel feels homey and comfy! :) Nice breakfasts (if you're awake), very secure! LOVE
This hostel is awesome! I would recommend this to everyone, especially if you are in college and looking to have a greate time in Budapest. The staff and owner are super friendly, fun, and helpful. They will even take you out to the bars and they have discounts they can give you for different bars. Large common area to meets other people or just chill. Absolutely grat location. Plenty of different bathrooms and showers so you don't have to wait. I can't say enough about great my stay was here.
It was fun to stay there for two nights, hanging out with other travellers and hostel staff. The bed was a little uncomfortable, but when you are tired after wandering around the city all day/evening/night, you won´t even notice it. Just happy to have a good sleep in a cozy place and nice breakfast in the morning. That was great! Very friendly place to be, thanks for the házi, took my flu away :)
Exellente place for vacation. :) It is in the heart of Budapest. Clean, cheep accomodation. Perfect for discover a beautifull city like this. I hope to come back some day.
This hostel is quality and value for money. The bathrooms are big and there's always hot water. Kitchen is big, the WiFi works, breakfast is fine etc etc. Location is superb, really close access to everything. The only annoying thing is it's one of those hostels that thinks it's cool to be really really hard to find!!
Great hostel, great location. The staff was fantastic and helped us a lot. The dorm was good and big, the kitchen was nice too and we loved the free tea and coffee. Breakfast was included and it was good.
This is the most amazing hostel I've been so far. It's pretty well located, fairly cheap and has the most amazing atmosphere ever. I booked 7 days and stay for 4 more!. They even made me a surprise cake for my bday, and I'm so grateful about it. If you are travelling alone you will feel like home. I'll never forget my stay here, I can't wait to go back!
The hostel is great for its price. It is super cheap and in a great location. But the mattresses are thin, no locks on the bedroom doors, and the staff could be a little better at offering advice and suggestions for what to see and do. The breakfast I minimal but free so that's a plus. Overall you get what you pay for and for a cheap place to stay it is good.
Very good. Centric and comfortable hostel.

Fantastic staff, fantastic location, showers weren't very clean but other then that no other problems whatsoever :)
really enjoyed my time in Budapest and the hostel went a long way in making it one of the best experiences of my life. a big thank you to peter and the rest of the staff there. would definitely stay here again
This is a great hostel with an almost family atmosphere. The living room area is superbly equipped, with two computers, one of which is connected to a VERY GOOD amplifier and speakers and a projector. There is a washing machine, too. Only two tiny negatives: one bathroom doesn't have a lock on it (and has *two* showers in it - some see this as a positive...!) and there aren't enough safes to go round (although while I stayed there were larger groups so this didn't matter). A great place!
Excellent location and friendly staff! Would recommend!
I suppose this could be and probably will turn out to be a very nice hostel. However when we stayed there was lots of maintenance work underway, meaning avoiding bits of wall sticking out, loose wires and heaps of furniture piled next to our room. Location would be perfect for some people, being a 30 second walk from the main square, however it is a small trek to get to the party capital of the Jewish quarter. Very reasonable price, I am tempted to come back in a few years to see the changes!
Great hostel for what you get. Lots of fans and massive common area. Amazing location
Really enjoyed my stay at the hostel!! Be sure to check properly where it is as we accidentally went to the old site due to google misleading us. The staff were great and very helpful and everything was so clean and nice! A very lovely hostel!
a nice small hostel in the heart of Budapest (it's located in the main shopping street)...although we had some difficulties to find it as there was no sign at the door. Great personal atmosphere and the rooms were ok for the little money we paid. Showers were a bit odd as you couldn't lock them and there didn't really seem to be a genderdivision...but we didn't care. Would definitly recommend it.
