Thanks for waking up and letting us in at 1am in the morning! Not all hostels are like that... btw the location is good to visit Budapest and for transport to the airport and everything else is what you would expect from a good hostel :)

Very nice stay. We had a good time in this hostel. The receptionist is very kind. The lockers are have a lot of security. The living room is great.

While the staff was phenomenal and incredibly helpful, the hostel in general just wasn't very clean. Beds were comfy and felt clean, but the bathrooms and common areas didn't seem to be cleaned that regularly.

The hostel is far from the city center but is close to the metro station. The room is really small but is good. The lockers are very good and secure since they have an electronic locking system as well as the hostel's main door. The value for money is excellent but they don't have a very equipped kitchen.

The hostel is very good and the staff is very thoughtful! They always try to help you! The only thing that I would advice to improve is the cleanliness, even though I know that it's difficult to maintain the bathroom that clean with such a huge amount of young people using it at the same time... HAHA

Location is good which is quite near to the Metro Station and Bus Station. A shopping mall is 2-min away which is convenient to buy food from supermarket, or enjoy a meal at the food court, also some fashion shop and post office as well. The staff at the reception is nice and helpful. However, the female WC has no lock which make me feel unsafe and insecure. It made me afraid that someone may come in when I was bathing. But in general, the bed and room is ok. Valuable for money.

The hostel is one of the cheaper options in the city. Not really close to anything. Main bus station is three stops away by metro. A billiard table is in the common room. There is a kitchen downstairs.

The staff in this place were weird. The proprietor stared at me funny every time he saw me. Both mornings he came into our room and stared at everybody in turn and then left the room. His staff were just as weird.

There was rarely someone at the reception. There was always some random men wondering about. I think they only clean once a week so the bathrooms were pretty gross. The wifi only worked about 50% of the time. And the location was quite poor. Definitely worth a few extra dollars to stay somewhere closer to downtown that is clean and less strange.

It's no Ritz Carlton, but for what you pay its a pretty good deal for what you pay and its right by the metro and the mall (that has a grocery store in it)

This is not a hostel you want to stay at if you want to meet people and have good atmosphere, it was also quite a bit out of the main city centre - the staff were ok but never there? There was a phone to "get in contact with someone from reception" but the guy on the other end just told us we had to wait till someone arrived

Hostel was conveniently located near the metro, which was a direct train from either the main bus station or the airport. The receptionist was really kind and provided us with all the info needed for our stay. Overall a good stay for the price of the hostel.

Hostel was not walking distance to most touristy parts of Budapest, but was very close to the metro. The main staff member was very kind and helpful. If you want a quiet nights sleep I would recommend this hostel. The showers and bathrooms do not lock which was a bit uncomfortable at first. Nice common areas to meet other travelers.
