Pretty much everything is perfect, the only big issue I had was my computer for some reason didn't work with the internet there, and it lead to not being able to listen to my podcasts on the plane ride home. Other then that, great hostel, great everything pretty much.
I'll be honest. I was expecting a disaster due to the comments and rating, but honestly, I had no problems and I enjoyed the hostel. It's old and the carpets look a bit stained in some places, but that's mostly due to how old the building is, and I'd personally prefer having carpets like the ones they have. Everything is still clean and the room I was in was still nice and older buildings will have some issues. Definitely a positive having new owners of the place and highly recommended.
The internet is a bit of an outdated system, if it worked. Good atmosphere though being that it is a motel. Can be a bit loud at times, but that's why I always bring ear plugs with me.
Nothing more to say that hasn't already been said below.
I had my phone stolen from my room there. I was napping and I guess someone left the door open when leaving. There were no security cameras on that floor so beware. A lot of the showers were out of order, but I was able to shower successfully at least. The staff was very helpful after my phone was stolen to give them credit, helped me with reporting and moved me to an upgraded room. I feel they should have more staff on computers when people are checking in, lines can get really long.
Somewhat expensive, but the money they get is put into a great number of activities, including yoga, a nice partnership with a great local gym, karaoke, bar parties, etc. Also, I learned about "hipster backpackers" from reading previous comments left here. So unless you're a "hipster backpacker", you'll enjoy this hostel.
Excellent hostel. Only downfall is people from Edmonton can't book in, but I think I understand why some people might do that. But, there's a limit on how long you can stay. But, generally a great hostel to be at.
It's pretty much a cheap hotel. Very enjoyable.
Very good hostel and staff. Wish I could say the same for the city.
Very good hostel. Enjoyed it very much.
I think the whole, being forced to book two nights seems like a money grab. I know someone had a problem with that when I was at the hostel, where she was lied to about getting money back for leaving early. She had to book for two days, but only wanted to stay one. So, when she said she was leaving, they gave away her bed and wouldn't give her her money back. I know, as I was the one who took her bed. Other then that, it was ok.
One of the best hostels I've ever been at. Great price, great location, the perfect hostel.
The directions are a bit off, which was frustrating, especially with lack of sleep. At that train station stop, go out the Via Miande end, or something like that. It's Via and the next word starts with an M, lol. Then, walk forward, in the direction of the Turro subway stop. You should see a sign that says, Sweet Hostel. And also, type in 2002 or simply search for the Sweet Hostel name while at the door, and press the button with the bell on it to call.
The wifi doesn't reach to the room with the most beds. It was ok though.
Great hostel, great location, highly recommended.
Great hostel with a great location.
I wasn't there, but my add needs to get this done.
Not much to do around the hostel, very quiet when I was there. Probably the most secure hostel I\'ve ever been at, so if security is something important to you, this is the hostel you want to go to.
I put average for cleanliness due to some of the rooms being a bit cramped, and people in the rooms making a mess, and it\'s certainly not the fault of the hostel owner, who is very smart and people should listen to his advice, as there are a lot of crocked things that go on in Budapest.
Very nice Hostel with an apartment style look to it. Highly recommended.
