My friend and I took a private apartment with Locomotive Light Hostel and were happy with the value for our money. The apartment was located in the Jewish district which was in walking distance to some attractions/good access to public transportation. Perfect option for couples/group of friends to enjoy a clean and spacious apartment equipped with everything that you need (fridge, stovetop, microwave).


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.


Really nice hostel near the train station. Comfortable beds and an athmosphere making you feel like home! Superkind and helpful staff!

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


Wonderful, helpful staff. Thank you!


The people who work there where all super nice and helpfull :)


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!


Great hostel. thanks
