Great hostel! It would be very helpful to have install a board with info about the phone, address and email of the reception (Jozef Varos location) at the Kiraly Pal location for guests staying there.

If you're looking for a non-traditional place to stay than this is it! The hostel was currently under renovations, so if you're looking to stay here you might want to wait for a couple months until they are done. This hostel is located in an apartment and there is no reception desk. Be exact with your arrival time for the owner because you will be waiting around until the owner gets there if you are early. The owner was really nice and gave us good suggestions for things to see in Budapest.

A very nice place, looking more like a flat than an hostel, great people. For sure I would recommend it! ciao!

Strange hostel located in a flat…mostly long term occupants that have their own little culture in there and were a little surprised/unwelcoming for other visitors to come. Only 1 shower and the private room is attached to the kitchen so not very private and very loud. They were nice enough, just strange.

I was there with my couple for 3 nights, the hostel has no reception but Marcin was there to receive us and explain everything we needed to enjoy Budapest in the best way. All what he recommended was absolutly perfect. If you are looking for a luxury place it is not for you but if you are a backpacker and like alternative places this is a wonderfull hostel in a very good location with nice people. Best regards and we hope to visit you again.

Nice hostel, located near the central area of Budapest. A lot of parking place. Lockers in the rooms, kitchen could be bigger but apart from that very nice place. Clean bathrooms and clean rooms.

Very pleasant place to spend time in. Near city as well as bus and metro. Place with great vibe and nice people including staff. Rooms were ok and facilities as well. Even though It was quite hard to get around Budapest, people working there explained me all things I needed. Will come back once I am in Budapest again.

The room was very good, very clean - with a nice touch, because of the colourfull wallpaints. Many thanks to Geza! He was very helpfull and easy to contact. For this price, it's a miracle, that it's not always overbooked - very good hostel!

The Hostel is very central and near the metro. The stuff was very friendly as well. Allthough it was horrible to stay in the Downtown Hostel because it was so dirty and disgusting. Every morning we woke up with new insect bites from bugs or fleas. And the bites won't heal for about a week. Additionally you couldn't open the bathroom door from inside.
