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.


lovely staff and clean rooms. You are given a key fob which opens the front door and is for a locker which is great.


The hostel is not very clean, but the kitchen is big and there are everything what you need. Location is ok, not so far away from the center.


Good hostel, good value for money and easy to get around Budapest from there. Just be aware that there is a shopping centre that cuts the street in half, so depending which side you are coming from, you may have to go through the centre. Zoltan, the staff was pretty cool!


A little bit away from the main tourist area, but in a nice area still where I managed to find some nice bars and restaurants. Generally quite clean and the staff were OK to help out. Place is huge and spacious, so you can find a chill out space to suit you at all times.


Good place, but it have some deficiencies. There are no locked door in toilet, shower not attached to the wall, many water from the bathroom in corridor, no soap, not a lot of cups in the kitchen. But there are board games in the hostel, such as table football, billiards, table tennis ping-pong.

my locker key opened 3 other lockers, not secure at all! the showers leaked and there would be a pool on the floor. no air con or fan so in the summer it is very hot. wifi hardly ever works. good kitchen facilities and good way of meeting people as the hostel is small and everyone congregates in the courtyard.


Close to a metro and shopping center. Good common room w pool and foos tables, large kitchen, cool posters. There was a leak they were controlling w two towls and a mop - hopefully it'll be fixed soon.


Was the best time that i had!! The hostel and the people was really good :) i recommend these hostel!!

Really nice Hostel where you can sleep if yoj need too. The facilities are great, the kitchem had everything. The downside was when I arrived the staff wasn't really friendly and the first thing they said was can you pay now.


A nice hostel with nice big rooms. The security is really good, you get a key for two front doors, and also the locker is good. There is a big common room and a kitchen. There is a shopping mall centre around the corner. The hostel is a bit out of the city centre, but you can easily walk there or take the tram/metro.


Couldn't find anything better for that money, thats all. Not that bad location though.


Close enough to see the major attractions but far enough away to enjoy the local scene.


We were moved around rooms lots unnecessarily and it was done not in the most polite way, which we didn't appreciate.


Needed either the pin code or your key to enter and every one was allocated a locker in the room. Met lots of friendly people while staying here, especially when using the kitchen facilities. Hostel is a bit of a walk away from central Budapest - 20min approx. and the staff can sometimes leave you waiting. But other than that it was generally a great place to stay.


Great hostel, staff could have been a little friendlier and the room a bit more clean


The room was good, although there was no air conditioning, and in July it was in the high 30's, so it was a little uncomfortable to sleep in. The bathrooms were okay, but could definitely do with updating!!
