I travel a lot but this was worst hostel ever! The bed has bedbugs, the staff didn't do anything against it. I got lots of Bietes!!! Very unfriendly grumpy guy, how lives over "reception". There is no free car parking, i got a ticket. Laundry cost 4€ The only good thing was the free coffee!!
The staff was really great and helpful. The room we had in the flat was huge and very well located.
Very cosy little hostel. It's quiet and feels kind of like you have your own apartment in Budapest. A short walk to transport, supermarkets, bars and restaurants.
Location of Yep Hostel is perfect! Right next to the Jewish Synagogue and quite close to Szimpla (one of the best ruined pubs in Budapest). We arrived at the hostel early in the morning. We did send an email to the hostel two weeks before to notice them. Apparently the hostel owner didn’t expect us, because he was really cranky. We had a private room which was really big and we shared a kitchen and bathroom with two other couples. Everything was clean. The room was on the other end of the street
The room was fine, although there were no curtains or something else to cover the windows. The owner was a bit grumpy when we arrived (he was just awake), but was more friendly on later occasions. The bathtub was also the drain for the washing machine. The common room was very dark.
Very nice hostel. Clean, well located, safe... I would definetely recomend it.
Very nice staff. While I was working on my laptop they offered me food they just made (a hungarian dish) that was delicious. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm which was good value for price.
Great experience once again ! it was my forth time at the Yep the hostel is very central 5 minutes away from DEAK square and VACI UTCA. it's in the pubs area and everything is just outside the door. the hostel isn't big therefore not much atmosphere , but it's so central that you can have your privet time to sleep and feel the atmosphere of Budapest just outside the door staff is great and always look to treat you good. dont have space to write all good things. but nothing but good things
1) It says that you have parking (http://www.hostelworld.com/hosteldetails.php/Yep-Hostel/Budapest/23233#facilities) and you don't. 2) The staff is not really helpful to give tips of tourist attractions, what to see, and so on. They were quite mean as well. Otherwise, the place is quite nice, and even though I didnt care, solo travellers should know that the common areas are not good to meet new people and the hostel is quite quiet at night.

Not very welcoming, the free tea and coffee did not exist! The toilet (of which there is two!) had stains all around the bottom, and the shower was dirty too.. The experience did not get any better when after going out to change over to HUF to come back and pay the man his first words were, 'you pay me now'.. Also the sink was full of dishes when I arrived, and I was literally the only person staying there at the time... Explain that?? Do yourself a favour and stay elsewhere
I know where to stay next time in Budapest :-). Hostel near synagogue in jidish quarter, cheap restaurants and shops just few metres from the main door. Staff is very helpful and smiling.

we stayed 2 nights in one of yep hostel's appartment, it was a very nice place with everything we needed. when we arrived they wanted to put us in an appartment alittle far from the jewish quarter but after we explaind them that it is a problem for us the girl at the reception was vert helpfull and arranged us a close one. I recommand this this hostel, it was very nice place and the cost is very low.

The hostel is basicly a very big apartment devided into rooms, which isn't bad. But perheps more propri. for couples i was in dorms room by my self and it was great. Specialy cause the hostel is super central in the main street of the jewish area where all the pubs and many clubs and lots of atmosphere. The staff is super nice and helpful with info and all, they needed to move me the second day to a different hostel , and for that compensate me with bottle of wine and discount. Great place
this hostel was fantastic. never have we had such friendly and helpful staff, and it Is obvious they are truly making and effort to help with any information you need. the rooms were really cool, very different theme so it was something new! I highly recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Budapest.
My boyfriend and I booked a double room with ensuite and it was fantastic. We had use of an authentic apartment only five mins from the river. It was spotless and secure. Would 100% stay again.
We're amazed to receive a full on apartment right in the centre of the city for such a good price! Staff were very helpful and kind girl at reception told us all the best places to change money, buy food, get free walking tours (highly recommend this) and the best ruin bars! Wifi in the room was excellent, fast enough to actually stream videos, and the location was superb - very close to everything from the tram, the Danube, the chain bridge and the basilica. Very much enjoyed our stay!

We didn´t stay at the hostel because they gave us a private apartment they can give to private room bookers, but the room was very wide, clean, and comfortable (a real flat). The kitchen was spacious and the girl who welcomed us was very kind even though she had clearly caught a bad cold :)
We got an apartment which was a few blocks from the hostel - surpassed our expectations completely! had beautiful furniture, lots of space and was very cool even in the middle of summer. Location was fantastic, right in the middle of the shops and bars and walking distance to the baths and river. Would definitely stay here again.
