We stayed in the private room, and only for one night, so I can't really say anything about the atmosphere or how the dorms are. The private though, had absolutely unbeatable location and was cheap, clean and had great wifi. Would recommend this to Budapest-travelers!

Thanks a lot for your help, it was a really fantastic stay we had in Budapest, and the flat has really played a part in making it enjoyable :)

A little home from home. We had a great time staying at the small apartment which was right by the Basilica. Nice clean bedding and towels, clean bathroom facilities with a lovely hot shower and the little kitchen area with fridge was great for a few grocery supplies whilst we were here! Will definitely recommend to family and friends if they travel to Budapest.

I give the highest score because the Pal's hostel really deserve it. We were nicely welcomed and had a lovely 2 rooms with the common area totally for our own. The place was situated close to the city centre next to the finest restaurants and best pubs.

We have same type of bed in our rooms. People usually like them. Said to hear that:(

It is a fantastic location, close to the main sights of Budapest, 30 seconds to the Basilica.. Close to lots of restaurants and bars. It's not a very social hostel- we didn't see any other guests during our stay (which is a good or bad thing depending on what you're looking for!). It was very clean. We were staying in a room above reception with a staircase not built for a suitcase. Staff were ok, didn't really acknowledge us unless we had a question.

We were in an apartment in Saint Steban square, just opposite the Church. It was incredible. A huge lounge with excellent views. New and very clean, with all facilities for cooking and very comfortable. The location is unbeatable, in the centre but with no noise at night. We were really surprised with our lodging :) Worthy and good value for your money.

The Hostel is really, really good. It is right in the middle of the touristic area of Budapest. The rooms are clean and wyde, we were a 4 young man group, and each one had a bed (I had a double bad! :D), there was a simple TV, a kitchen and a bathroom. The internet was really fast, since we had our own router! The outside was a bit ugly and scary, but we had no problem. Oh, and Eszter is the cutest receptionist ever! We hope to see her again :)

Great location, stayed in a private room and there was everything we needed. Bathroom and kitchen were cleaned spotless everyday. The kitchen facilities were a little basic but they were so clean we didn't even notice. A great hostel to stay in.

The room was big and had a nice location. It was also in a really quiet building. The Hostel's prepaid airport transport never arrived when we were heading to the airport early in the morning. The regular taxi left us 9 minutes to spare before the gate was closing. At least we got our money back of the prepaid airport transport. The room was quite clean but there was a big cockroach running in the room.

Well... true:( These things happen and never come alone:( My driver couldn't weak up after one and a half hour sleep. They called us at 4.05 am the driver is not there. I met with them in another 5 minutes called a cab and returned the money. And we do cockroach control annually. We've called them for an immediate extermination now.

Nice apartment hostel in central Budapest! I surely recommend it :)

This felt more like staying at someone's apartment than a hostel. Very clean and big and private. Do not stay here if you're trying to party or make friends. This is a great spot for families or when you need some rest.

A wonderfully spacey apartment, brilliantly located right by the Basilica. Apartment block was nice and quiet. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and offer a value for money taxi service to and from the airport.
