Very small hostel, close to the train station. If you are not expecting much, besides great location and a good nights sleep, than this is a perfect place for you.

Well located for Keleti railway station. Quite an atmospheric building and hostel. No real problems. Traffic noise was manageable with window closed.

The staff was mega kind and caring. Only problem was the roll-up shutter in the room, which didn't work and made it a bit noisy and bright inside the room.

Really enjoyed our stay. The hostel is VERY close to main train station and metro! Amazing and helpful staff who went out of their way to make you feel welcome, as well as having great suggestions of walking tours and activities. Would stay here again if I came back to Budapest! Felt very safe :)

Very scary going there at night. No sign except for a small letter when buzzing up. very bohemian with no social interaction. only a place to sleep.

This hostel is very close to budapest keleti station and is very suitable for traveller with big baggage like me. There are food store so you cook yourself. 1/8 big pizza just 0.6 europe dollar, very cheap.

A very small and intimate hostel. At first we thought it was someone's flat as it is set in an apartment block. None the less, the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. They pointed out just about everything on the map and were very chatty. It's right next to the main station and metro stops so very convenient. The only offputting thing is all the mannequins around the hostel..very weird. But overall a brilliant hostel

I absolutely loved this place. It's run by a couple who make you feel at home as soon as you walk through the door. Another plus is that the hostel is literally a 3-minute walk from one of the main train stations, which we really appreciated when we were walking with backpacks!

Lovely stay in this small and intimate hostel. Stayed in a double room and was well decorated. Very friendly hosts who gave lots of info where to visit in Budapest. Very easy to find from the station but takes a good half hour plus to walk into the main town. public transport also available. a good cheap stay

Locomotive was great for a 2 night stay and is extremely close to the train station which is perfect if you have luggage. The atmosphere is really rustic and a true backpackers hostel. It is not pristine, but the rugged atmosphere makes for a great way to meet other travelers and the owners are incredibly helpful.

It was a really delightful hostel with a very passionate staff. It is cheap and close to the train station with a great cosy atmosphere. I wish I could stay there longer because the two ´pop-up´ hostels in Budapest I have been to afterwards were terrible.

The stuff are super nice and helpful! It's very near the train station and just next to two metro lines which is very convenient! Yet the district may not be very safe but normally is fine. Get a locker and little table for each bed which is friendly. Beds are close to each other while unless you are sleeping with a strange in different gender in the middle which basically the beds are put tgt and sadly it happened to me, otherwise it's acceptable. Shower is powerful tho flooding may happen.
