Hostel was okay but relatively expensive. Good location and nice staff. Common room is too small and there are not enough bathrooms...

Really liked the atmosphere in the Hostel. Staff was nice, it was easy to check in and everything went fine. Time to time there was some rush to the shower but it's understandable considering the space.

Fantastic experience! I will definitely come back to this hostel next time. I was travelling alone but I met nice people in the hostel and we went out together for the 2 nights I stayed there. It's a small hostel, 3 rooms, 2 bathrooms but the atmosphere is unique.

Ugh, pretty sure I got lice from this hostel. Could have been from somewhere else, but it wasn't really an awesome place anyway. Atmosphere was ok

We had a very nice stay at Oleander, it is located in one of the neater neighborhoods at walking distance from the inner city/restaurants and bars. The hostel has a homey-atmosphere! The only downsides where that there was only one shower and that the oven was out of order. Definitely good value for money!

A great place to stay if your looking to meet people and have a fun time in Budapest. The staff are helpful and always on hand if you need anything. The location is great in terms of being central to the city, however it's a little bit of a walk from the train station. They do only have 1 shower but this Isn't really a problem. Overall, loved our stay, met some great people, would recommend.

Very nice and cozy hostel! Staff is very nice and there's a chill atmosphere. Only negative point is one bathroom for the whole hostel.

It's a cute little hostel-- emphasis on the little. The only real problem is that there are two bathrooms and one (somewhat broken and gross) shower for like 30 people. Other than that, not bad at all.

A cute and very tiny hostel. Perfectly good Internet, staff nice, location great. Only problem: bathrooms pretty bad-- only one shower for like 30 people and a bit gross. But hey, you get what you pay for.

Very dark & dingy and the one bathroom for lots of guests could be an issue. Quite a small hostel so not much of an atmosphere but the location couldn't be better and fairly cheap. Don't visit if you bother about hygiene or aesthetics but if not is a perfectly good hostel to stay in.

Was able to stay in Budapest for just one night. Oleander was a nice place, would stay there again. Staff was helpful for sharing city Info and places to drink/eat at. Bed was comfortable and location is a short walk from center.

Really nice hostel with a very good location. It feels being at home! But only one bathroom is not enough for 20 people.

When I paid a fee for one day, i got a shock. Because of the additional tax.

This is a really nice hostel. It's really small, so it force everyone to talk to everyone. The receiptionist is very nice and he always help you if you need to find someting. I recommand it for all young travelers who want to meet new people and party at night. This is the place where iv'd meet the nicer people in my all trip. Plus, having a bed it's really cheap and it had every thing you need.
