this was an average hostel, located right next to the metro and with a nice bar and decent facilities - though the hallway was always humid from the showers, and you had to pay to get an adequately thick blanket (not included in your set of free sheets). wifi only worked in the common area or the hallway near the door, and breakfast was fine. BUT: my towel and swimsuit were stolen right off the drying hook, and the staff point-blank refused to do anything about it, so that sucked.

great location (close to sacre cour and metro, plus 10min walk from gare du nord). breakfast wasn't great. often a line at reception, but staff members very helpful and friendly. key card for the hostel door makes it more secure. wireless internet worked well.
oasis is a 3-block walk from reception, which made checking in and out with my baggage a mess. wifi was amazing, and staff was reasonably helpful despite their far location. beware, however: if you book a 2-bed room, you'll be put on the top floor where even the hallway is sweltering - slept in my undies and still couldn't escape the sweat.
it was difficult to meet people, there were lots of stairs, and the facilities just weren't that nice. my bed squeaked so loud that i woke up everyone whenever i rolled over, not to mention gettiing in/out of bed. it also felt a little sketch walking back to the hostel along a mostly-deserted residential road late at night from the metro. breakfast was fine and the staff was very helpful. i stayed there the weekend of wimbledon, which explains how crazy expensive the hostel was for me.
staff was friendly and helpful. there weren't enough showers (4 for an entire floor), and the bathrooms weren't too clean. this place was HUGE, but you could still meet people down on the main floor. a 5min walk from the metro, with some good restaurants clustered near the metro stop. keycard access to the room area and the room itself.
great location: right next to charles bridge and in-between the castle and astronomical clock. staff were helpful, if not friendly, and rooms were just the right size, with a nice suite bathroom. it was easy to meet people, and the value for money was fantastic. the only bad point was the amount of noise we could hear through the window at night and in the early morning (we kept it open to stay cool).
Overall, a solid hostel. The huge size of it made it feel a bit impersonal, but the facilities, cleanliness, and security were all nondescript and good. It was a 5-10min walk to the metro, and close to the Naschmarkt, which was a great location for the price.
My favorite hostel by far out of the 13 I've stayed at. This place was amazing! The staff are ~incredibly~ friendly and helpful (and I loved their wall of restaurant recs, they were all excellent!). The pub crawl was great, as was the cave spelunking, and really any activity that the hostel organized. If you're thinking about coming to Budapest, do, and if you come to Budapest, definitely stay here!!
This place was great! Quiet, but still located close to the local beach and shopping strip in the center of old town Salerno. The staff were super helpful and we were upgraded to a 4-bed dorm instead of a 6-bed dorm so we could all sleep together! The private bathrooms were excellent as well.
