This place has great potential. The building is great – old with character. Small balconies for each room which help to cool the rooms at night which is great because there is no AC. It can get pretty warm. The breakfast isn't much to speak of but there is a good kitchen for cooking. The staff was helpful enough... but not necessarily friendly. With all the rules they enforce they're almost running a convent.
What a great spot. One of the first hostels in budapest and still one of the best. Everyone staying and working here was great
It's a good hostel for the price. The terrace up top is great. I was staying in low season so it was quiet.
