Nice hostel with quite new furniture, clean and nice rooms. Beds are not so comfortable, but I stay there only one night so it wasnt problem for me. The kitchen is realy big and all staff is there so you can cook without doubts. :) Next to the hostel is shopping centre and also metro station is very close. Bathroom is OK, even is only one for girls and one for boys in all floor. But for this price it is very goood quality :)

One very good thing about the hostel is the shower: ir was to die for. Bedroom was fine, although the mattress was very thin and quite uncomfortable. Locker rooms in the bedroom were big enough for a suitcase and locked through a pin on the key - I liked that. Kitchen area and common room were fine as well, nothing too over the top. Only downfalls were that most staff speak next to no English and the surroundings of the hostel at night were a bit frightening - despite it being close to a mall.


The staff was rude and unfriendly and the reception is not 24h. There weren't enough bathrooms per room in my opinion, and they didn't have toilet paper so often. Besides there is no sign on the door that makes easy to identify it's a hostel, and it is not take close to the nearest metro station, it was a bit hard to find.


You should definitely stay there if you're staying a few nights in Budapest. I only have good stuff to talk about the hostel. To begin, I sent an e-mail telling the host that I'd be arriving really early and if I could leave my bags somewhere while I walked around the city. He answered right after telling he'd help us with that and he even woke up early to host us. The staff is kind and nice. The kitchen is huge and has everything you need and more. The room is really good.


You can walk or take the tram to the center, really convenient!


On the outside it didn't look like a hostel, but inside it was clean, comfortable and cosy.


Really rude, impolite and unhelpful staff! Reception was most of time with no one to help, and we rang the doorbell for several minutes to get in for the first time and nobody came. An old man that said he was a guest used to be there to answer the phone but was unhelpful also. It is unacceptable a guest in reception, right? It is a pitty because the hostel has a nice kitchen and courtyard.


Very rude attendants, strong smell in the whole building. The reception was always empty an even when you found someone there they were very unwilling to solve your problems


Ok firstly finding this place is not great, directions were wrong and when you do see it your not sure it's even the place until you see a small label on the buzzer saying hostel, the owners are father and son and the father is very cranky and never about on his shift. The place was quite and the wifi was best out of the room, near tram and metro stop so not too bad


My friend and I only stayed for a night and unfortunately I think we were the only people there, which is such a shame because the hostel is actually really big and perfect for many people. Common areas are cool and it would've been much better but the value for money is the best thing about it!


Great hostel in respect of price/quality. Facilities are perfect. Supermarket nearby and with the underground in ten minutes in the centre.

manager's attitude could be better than this.. 부다페스트엔 싸고좋은 숙소가많은편인데 이 호스텔은그닥좋지않았네요. 켈레티역에서는 지하철,트램타고 이동하면되는데 걷기엔멀더군요. 바로옆 corvin plaza 지하에수퍼마켓이잇어 유용햇습니다. 중앙시장이나 중심관광지까지는 걸어서 20-30분정도 됩니다. 와이파이는 가끔씩끊기지만 잘되는편이고 부엌도 나쁘지않습니다 인덕션 렌지성능 좋고요. 나흘정도 잇엇는데 느낀문제점은 매니저의태도입니다. 둘째날까진 방을혼자써서 아무일없엇는데 셋째날 들어온게스트가 건물내금연인데 방에서 담배를 열개피넘게피워 방전체가 숨쉬기힘들정도가되엇습니다. 주인을불러 사태를얘기하니, 본인이 게스트에게 경고햇고 미안하지만 본인도경찰이아니라 더이상 어떻게할수없다고만 하시고, 저렴한호스텔이니 이해하라는? 말씀을하셧습니다. 좀황당해서 방옮겨달라고 요구하고 티격태격하다 다른방에서 잘수는잇엇습니다. 많이아쉬웠고 이런점에서 추천은않겠습니다.

Shady people in hostel. Half of things do not work in kitchen, A little out of way from station and city center as well Access by tram easy though. All in all decent


Everything okay. Staff very helpful.


It is a bit tricky with the main entrance, you have to press the button on the left hand side of the door to ring the staff so they can open it for you.


Good. Keep it up. Do make some display of your hostel outside, so that travelers can find it easy to locate.


We booked for 2 nights and stayed for 7! The staff went above and beyond. Its a really good family run hostel. Forget money driven party hostels and stay here!!


very nice hostel in a handy position close to the metro
