A cool place with helpful English speaking staff (some of them speak Russian as well). I liked pretty much everything.
This was the first hostel I've stayed in and it was definitely a lot better than I expected for the price. Though there's nothing special about it and it's a bit out of the way, it's clean and safe and really cheap, definitely recommended for a budget trip.
Everything was right about the hostel except the staff; well, they weren't unfriendly, but they weren't friendly either. We travellers could use more humour sometimes and the old man mending the desk seemed to be very inflexible on certain things.
incredibly well located and best value for your money. bed sheets were definitely freshly washed (as well as the towels you could borrow at the reception; you could smell the washing detergent in both the sheets and the towels- thumbs up!). lovely backyard to hang out in a summer night. easy-going atmosphere. in short, i could go on and go marveling about this place – the only flaw being the girls' bathrooms. showers were ice cold and you couldn't lock the loo's door anywhere.
Great hostel! Loved the atmosphere... If coming to budapest this is the place to go...
loved the ping pong table, but was somewhat far away from the center, and despite the large common room, there was no communal vibe. perhaps because it's quite a big hostel so there are too many guests
A very nice hostel that definatily is value for money, excellent facilites, wifi in rooms, and very roomy. And all of it's dirt cheap
A nice hostel with nice facilities! Except for the kitchen, which is in a cellar and has a really bad smell! You have to fix that! The smell is so bad that it is impossible to stay in the kitchen. The location is a bit far from the center, but the metro is easy to use.
Very nice hostel, nice kitchen and garden.
The directions are vague, so it was a little difficult for me to find.
Nice place. It is clean, safety and at low price. There is not luxury but if you are trying to reduce cost, this is the best option.

The man that works on the reception is really nice. The common areas are really cool, you can chill out with friends. The rooms are good as well! It was really nice staying there! :)
Lovely place that feels very homey. Not wild but still fun and filled with friendly people. Close to a metro stop and easy to get to. Very clean and comfortable in the bathroom and dorm, and I like that there is a computer and kitchen for use.
Really liked this hostel, could use a little more attention to cleanliness but overall decent. The owner was really nice and helpful, location, about 5 stops from the main streets by tram which I nearby. Take the minibus from the airport short ride but if arriving by night let them know you are arriving late otherwise you will be outside waiting for a while.
Good location near metro and tram, confy bed, friendly staff, fully equiped kitchen, nice common room, very cheap. I recommend it
Nice staff, very clean and a good atmosphere. Loved the facilities like the big kitchen, nice garden, livingroom, laundry service
We've stayed in Budapest before but this was by far our favourite hostel, loved the courtyard and communal areas! Will definitely return!

It's a very cheap hostel in case you're looking for saving money. The common area is very nicely decorated with a mini football and ping pong table and a computer. Regrettably there were some issues with the cleanliness of the bathroom, not much privacy and also no place to put your clothes. The neighbourhood didn't look good, although I didn't have any problem regarding security.
Stayed there for just one night but everything was great, the only small problem is that the hostel is almost in now ways visible from the street, there's just a really small sign saying "hostel" on the doorbell so it's kind of difficult to locate. Everything else was just great and the price is really cheap. :)
