The location is excellent if you are arriving by train and want something within easy walking distance. It's pretty far from most of the major attractions, but there are trams nearby and it's not too bad of a walk to get most places. The hostel has a very homey vibe, as the dorm-style bedroom is actually a loft with beds scattered around the room. Cleanliness and facilities were pretty standard, the man working during my stay was very helpful and friendly, generally good for the price.

The owner is kind, friendly and knowledgeable, very nice to talk to. The location is excellent, right next to the train station, though initially it might be a bit tricky to find as the sign on the door was kinda small. The ambiance is warm and cozy, the beds are comfortable.

Great location near the train station. Hostel was clean and room was nice. Great option if you are looking for something close to the train station.

Wonderful hostel - very quirky and charming deco; extremely clean; well-equipped kitchen; amazing singing toilet (the radio turns on when you flick the light switch haha). Szilard, the hostel Manager, was super friendly and very very helpful. Slightly out of town, but right next to the metro so very convenient if you're using public transport. I can't recommend Locomotive Light Hostel enough!

Nice quiet hostel, very close to Keleti station, which is great if you want to catch a train early in the morning and need a place to crash for the night. There are restaurants nearby and a shop just below the hostel. Good hot shower, even though the bathroom is a bit small. It's clean and very good for the money you pay. Just pay attention to the instructions of how to get there. They'll send you those by email when you make a reservation.

Locomotive Light turned 2 first time hostel skeptics into hostel converts. Locomotive Light picked us up at the airport for 10 euros cheaper than any cab. The receptionist was friendly and suggested an awesome eatery (Huszar) around the corner. It was clean, inexpensive, and great location for training in and out of Budapest, especially at odd hours. Plus, it's located right above a cash machine making it easy to get Forints for enjoying Budapest. All four of us were pleasantly surprised by LLH.

The hostel was very conveniently located close to Keleti station and not too long a walk from the river. The man who checked me spoke great English and provided good conversation and some good tips. The dorm was nice, no bunk beds, and each bed had a large lockable cupboard, there was a large shower and separate toilet.

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.

One of the coolest looking hostel rooms I've seen, top marks for decorations. Unfortunately it was one of those time all the guests seemed to keep a bit to themselves, so the athmosphere wasn't great when I was there.

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.

Super helpfull staff, nice and small (12 beds or something) lures in considerate and quiet guests, a small privacy curtain at the beds (love that) reading light, great matrasses.

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 :)
