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.

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!!

Bathrooms weren't very clean. Showers were also awkward as there was nowhere to change. Most of the staff were friendly

good hostel... the only problem is that at one time, the hostel owner/staff complained that I use computer and watching TV at same time while the office have TV always ON while the office was closed. The Africans who probably lives in the hostel for long time, use computer a lot, made me wait too long. It would be nice if they have additional computer. Overall, great hostel in a great location.

The staff are extremely rude and they are not at the hostel at all times during their shifts. When they are not at the desk, anyone can take the key to the luggage storage, take their (or your) belongings and leave unnoticed (apart from that security is alright). Luggage storage in located in a very smelly room (former toilet?). Bad showers (but enough hot water), damp and thin mattresses, damp & unfresh sheets. Don't waste your time and money here, plenty of better places to stay in Budapest.

A very convenient yet inexpensive place. I like my staying there. Staff is nice; he lent us a socket adapter when we asked to borrow one. There are lockers in the dorm room and they were safe.

tricky to find the hostel as no signs are displayed outside. Reception is open 24hours. Rooms and showers are decent. Value and location is excellent. But you need to pay with cash which means you need change money to local currency. Walls between the rooms are very thin and we were woken up during the night because of that. Kitchen needs cleaning, and has smell of old food. The fridge also needs clean up. The room heating did not work and we slept with warm clothes on.

Amazing value for money!! Big communal/chill areas, awesome industrial kitchen & security systems. Location was perfect for me & had some lovely people coming through too.
