Hostel was quite loud, sadly right on the main road with ambulances and the tram going past constantly so sleeping was difficult. Think I may have gone there at an awkward time because other travellers were quite obnoxious and there wasn't really much of a community feel to the place. This isn't a reflection of the hostel though. Great kitchen facilities, clean (enough) bathroom and sitting area. Comfortable beds for the price.

The hostel was quite old and the facilities could do with an upgrade. Only two showers in the entire hostel so expect lines in the mornings. Probably wouldn't stay here again. Location is all this place has to offer.

Overall I liked the hostel, although the bed was quite small and not very comfortable. Also, there was no air contioning, so it was very hot in the room. The bathroom was clean, but there were some ants in the kitchen. The location was great (just by the river), but it wasn't where I expected it to be - it was on a second location of the same hostel. There were no ativities or anything organized at this location, but there was a room where the guest can hang out, with a nice view :)

This hostel was in a perfect location, around 5 mins walk from the Elizabeth Bridge and the Danube river. You could easily walk to all of the main sights in Budapest from here! The hostel is pretty small, but has everything you could need. Tamas was very welcoming and did everything he could to make your stay pleasant. The individual rooms didn't have their own key, but as the hostel is so small this didn't seem too concerning. The rooms have big lockers for you to fit your belongings in.

This hostel was in a great location, very easy to walk around the city and extremely close to public transport! The host was very welcoming and accomodating.

Positives: Central location Negatives: Broken - door locks (x3), wifi, floorboards, shower curtain, wall sockets (ALL), coffee table, drying rack, oven, lift button (possibly entire lift), fan, windows, owners phone. Strange findings - shoes outside window, single dead rose in a jar (representative of our stay), holes in tops and bottoms of door (inc. bathroom), 6x6inch pillows, several odd items in a cupboard. To be fair, owner was honest about all upon arrival 10/10 would recommend

Stayed here for three nights and had the best time. Location is perfect, five minute walk from anything and everything you need - the atmosphere is relaxed and you've got plenty of space to relax and talk to fellow travellers. Staff is great, laughs and jokes with everyone and he cares about you having a good time while you stay there. Can't fault this hostel, definitely will stay here again as I could find no problem while I stayed here.
