This place is in a great location near the Red Light District. The bar downstairs is good and the coffee shop is well stocked with average prices. My 8 person dorm was pretty cramped space-wise but the shower and bathroom situation was good - better than I expected. I'd stay at The Bulldog again.
This hostel has an amazing communal atmosphere where everyone hangs out together and does things at night together. This is a great hostel for meeting people and socializing. The facilities are extremely clean and the staff is very helpful and friendly. This was my favorite hostel in Europe.
The fact that the hostel is located on a party beach seems cool at first until you come to two distinct realizations. One, the bar does not give any preference to hostel guests and throttles you with extremely high drink prices. Two, I heard the same three songs played at max volume for four days straight. I thought I was going to have to check into an insane asylum because I couldn't get away from the repetitive cacophony that somehow passed as a dj spinning.
I'm not sure what made everyone else review this place so highly. It was advertised as having air conditioning, but made it extremely difficult to use. The rooftop bar, which has an incredible view, closes at 2200 and very few of the guests at this hostel even make it up to the bar. All in all this hostel is just a place to crash that is extremely close to the Acropolis.
For young people traveling through Budapest andlooking to party and meet people, this is a great place to go.
The bar hop is fun and the staff that run it are fun people. Don't go to the fourth place karlovy lazne as it is a excessively hot sausage fest populated by high schoolers. The location is central so you can easily see everything. The staff is friendly and gives you the scoop on where to go. Also, it's easy to meet people and then go out partying with them if that's what you're looking for.
