Mandarin is one of those rather rare hostels where you wanna stay not for night only but for having some fun among other visitors or people you're traveling with: ping pong, pool, kicker - the place captures you whenever you try to get out. ;) Room was clean enough, beds are quite big and comfy. Shower is fine as well as the kitchen. The place is not too central but absolutely easily reachable and we never used any transport to get from there to the city center (about 25 min walk).

Good location. Stuff friendly, specially the owner. Other employees are less useful. Maybe some more info about the city or transportation etc at the beginning would be nice; not just pushing a map into your hands. The terrace is great. Locker are secured and it's very close to Corvin shopping moll and metro and tram lines.

Good location just outside the city. Need to get around by train or metro but was close to the station. Staff friendly and helpful getting to the station and he was always smiling and saying hello.

A fair walk to the Center but doable if you don't mind walking. Not much for atmosphere but the common areas have potential with a good group of people. Wifi and kitchen were nice, bathrooms could be cleaner. And it would be really nice if under the beds were cleaned as well instead of just around them. The staff is very nice but not always the most helpful. Overall a decent stay for a couple days, definitely worth what you payed for.

The wifi only works outside, on the balcony or say in reception which is annoying, and it isn't that clean, the bathrooms are a bit gross but if you just wear flip flops you should be fine. Found it an awkward place to get home to after a night out, especially because it's a little out the way from the main road, but really close to the team and the metro. The atmosphere was chilled but maybe not as friendly as other hostels, but it was awesome to have a courtyard with table tennis and a BBQ!

I enjoyed my stay at Mandarin Hostel because of its central location and nice facilities. The hostel has a good atmosphere because lots of young travelers stay there and the common room is a great place to hang out and meet people. However, the aspects of my stay that I didn't like as much were the poor Wifi connection and some negative experiences with staff members. While some staff members were nice, others were blatantly rude. Also, the bathrooms were not cleaned during my stay.

Best kitchen we've seen! The kitchen is large and always seemed to be tidy and clean which made a nice change. Small but cosy bedrooms and very secure. Only downside to this hostel was terrible wifi otherwise it'd have 100%.

A little bit far from downtown but right by a tram stop so easy to get around! Nice rooms.
