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.

The room was not so clean and very cold during the night. The toilet was also leaking... The location was good, close to metro and restaurants.

well, it was my first experience in any hostel world listed hostel and i was a little bit afraid but i found it good. in 8 Euro seems like free if your intentions will be traveling and the guy on reception even give me some more discount since i did not have more HUF.

just felt a little run down. cant complain about the rooms or the bed...they seemed clean and bed was comfortable. but the bathrooms were a disaster. probably needs to be gutted or replaced. just seemed run down. the common hall was nice. tvs, pool table, couches, foosball. good place to meet ppl. the outdoor center area was cool too. location wise...seems really far away from everything. but it is close to a giant mall (if you're into malls while travelling)

I stayed here a total of 8nights, 3 of them I had the room to myself :) overall a good stay. Very good key system, kitchen and love the outdoor space. Only things to note is that the Internet is not good and toilets don't have locks. However would stay again :)

Very pretty with helpful staff! Bathrooms could be better maintained but the water pressure and heat was excellent so I can't complain. Also excellent lockers big enough for your entire backpack!

Great hostel, just a bit loud with the windows open at night (too hot to close them); garbage truck picked up at 5:00. Aside from that, absolutely no complaints, very friendly and clean place to stay.

Great hostel where you felt at home. Only downfall was the bathroom floors and kitchen floor were often very wet and dirty. Would recommend!!

The hostel was in a good location, was lively and had plenty of people around during the day. The hostel did look a little worn and old. The toilets sadly were in a state throughout most of the stay with flooding showers in the gents and ladies.

The safety system is pretty remarkable, the front door censor key can also be locker censor key! I love it very much. Everything here is pretty cozy and awesome, although the bathroom can be a bit more clean.

We each had a locker in the room with a fob key, but one of the girls in my room was able to open another locker with her key.

It was okay value for money. However we had a power cut that lasted 24 hours and all we were given were glow sticks...we received no discount. Hostel is in quite a good area. Shower and toilet facilities limited and not very clean. Staff weren't very helpful in telling us how to get places and where is good to go.

Clean and well equipped with great bathroom and recreational facilities. Though a little way out of the centre, very accessible to the centre by tram or subway, as well as the airport.

This hostel is very small and quiet. Whilst being a very cheap place to stay - you get what you pay for. Rooms were very small, and like the bathrooms, the cleanliness was questionable. The location of the hostel is not central, but is a 5 min walk from the metro which takes you into the centre. The kitchen smelt like damp, but was useable. Overall, the hostel was very basic, lacking in atmosphere and decent clean rooms. Having said this, staff were very helpful and friendly.

The room was a little bit hot, some fans would be great for the room.
