Tim is a very welcoming and nice guy, and a good host, however a bit particular. In the end we very liked this hostel and would definitely come back. There were so many nice people (most from english speaking countries), and every evening was a lot of fun. I can especially recommend Thursdays (booze cruise) and Saturdays (spa party). Also make sure to check out Szimpla. If you want to party without being in a loud, dirty and uncomfortable hostel, Tiger Tim's is the right choice.
Awesome location right near the train station so i didnt have to even hail a cab. awesome staff marcus was helpful with sitting me down with a map and telling all the sites to see. good guy to girl ratio will be back next year
Really really cool hostel the staff were very friendly and helpfull defiantly recomend
Third time at Tiger Tim's and I could not have had a better time. Great location, always awesome people, and the bean bags in the lounge are a great place to nap.

We had so much fun at Tiger Tims a great place if you want to party or have a night off to chill! There is a real laid back atmosphere you feel at home. There is something going on every night and staff are very approachable! Very different to other hostels we stayed at during our trip but definitely out favourite so far!
This hostel is only good because of the people who go there. I found the concept of running a hostel through an A4 folder grossly unprofessional and ridiculous. How hard is it to buy an extra modem. There was a running joke of unplugging the wifi so you could connect your phone 1st. Tim runs the place but is nonchalant in his dealings with people. The kitchen and other common areas are often unclean which increased my frustration at a poorly run hostel. I mean seriously reception desk as a book?
Great location and awesome host. All security coded doors so no keys needed witch is good.
Tim is a great guy, very relaxed, and takes care of his people. The rooms are clean, well secured, and in my opionion enough toilet/shower facilities. Tim organizes a pubcrawl every night, which is fun. Also they organised other activities, which we had to miss due to our own programm. It is a bit walking towards city center or party area, but we didn't mind. would definately recommend Tiger Tim's place.
Great place to go if you want to party in Budapest. The free pub crawls are great and Tim is really good about making reservations or calling taxis for whenever you need them.
It was central. But for Budapest it was expensive €25ish a night and the wifi didn't work. Showers were freezing. No warm water. No air con . Moved to a hostel for €5 a night with all those things this one doesn't. Shop around.
the place you should stay in Budapest if you want a place where you can go out with the people there, but can also just stay if you want to sight see. Great bar crawls lead from there after predrinks with about 15 people so you got to know everyone, but if you wanted to stay in you it was fine because the party always left at 10pm everytime without fail. Good kitchen to use, quite hard to find and up in some fairly average apartment type block, but that gave it the character. T
Actually stayed at sexy tractor didn't know this until we got there. Wifi doesn't work, seriously buy a new modem there not that expensive small investment. The people who stay there make the place. Curtis another staff member is rude and offensive to women, ya probably should fire him. Also clean the place, yuck.
Hostel has improved a lot since my last stay, Timmy is a bit of a hot head loves to stress over little things. But hostel is pretty good I'd go back. Tim wears the same close every day though
Nice location, about 20 min walk to downtown and Szechnyi bath house. Beds were okay, AC in rooms at night. Two toilets but only one shower, kind of inconvenient. Atmosphere - meh. Pretty easy to meet people but everyone seemed exhausted from the Sziget music festival! Staff was nice but a little odd and always there to supervise, uncomfortably.
Has a great atmosphere, they make an effort to take everyone out on pub crawls / spa party every night. kitchen wasn't great, not that many showers. Overall we had a great time here, Budapest is an awesome city
Very friendly and helpful staff in a great location!
Very disappointed firstly booking for one hostel and being taken to a different one called sexy tractor. Very average hostel with nothing good but nothing bad about it. Compared to the 20 or so other hostels I have stayed at in Europe so far on this trip it's been by far the worst value for money. Basically any one who is drinking gets kicked out at ten to go on a pub crawl or silenced to a room with no music allowed. Seems like the hostel has been put together in a few weeks.
