Kudos to the staff for being exceptionally helpful and funny; love the souvenirs - especially the choccie bulk!
We were extremely welcomed at CBK! The staff was very friendly and quite helpful, the location just perfect and easily reachable, close to the best sights in Budapest. We would gladly stay at the same hostel any time!
As our booked room wasn't available, we got a different room. The advantage was that it had its own bathroom! The disadvantage -- that it was on the other side of the road, which made it more complicated (but not impossible) to get to the main building in order to eat, cook, etc. On the other hand, the hostel is most excellent placed, just round the corner from Mariahilferstrasse: it took us 20 minutes to walk to the Schoenbrunn Castle, for example. There are plenty of places to eat.
We enjoyed our stay at the hostel very much! I particularly appreciated the staff, who were all very helpful and kind. It was easy to communicate (some spoke both English and Russian, which helped me and my companions as well) and to grab the rules. Tidy, very well placed, clean, spacious, wonderful design --- basically all you need in the very heart of the city!

Conveniently places at a couple of minutes from the main train station. Very helpful and pleasant staff. Adaptors, fridge sectors, lockers available for a 10CHF deposit each. Rooms are a bit small and showers a bit awkward, but it works. There are kitchens at every floor, very well equipped.
Very helpful staff, speaking French, Flemish and English. Lovely atmosphere in the common room. Clean rooms, bed linen included, toilets and showers OK. Met a lot of people, had a lot of fun, and the breakfast was simply delicious!
The staff was friendly and helpful - attention! they speak only Italian or Portuguese. The room was clean, though the condition of the facilities was poor i.e. we had only one wall socket for 3 people. Security-wise there's no key for the room, but you get a locker with a lock and a key for 3 euros (you get them back when you check out).
Might be worthy to double check if they got the date of your check out right, otherwise you might lose your Disney original towels!!! But besides that, everything is quite fine; just remember to bring your own bedset ;-) (also, filled with cool people, and it comes with cheap, good coffee, too!)
