Great place to stay in the heart of modern Istanbul. Cosy, compact yet homely, The Arch-ist is THE hostel to stay at on Taksim side.

New hostel the city just starting out. 24hr reception with big rooms filled with bunks and individual lockers with lock provided. Brand new, very clean, set up in ground floor of office buildings. Staff have done good job to make hostel bright and cheerful. Lounge and kitchen big shared open space. Modern, good value for money and around the corner from the Busterminal. Good overnight on way to next destination.
Roger's is snug. Albert and Mario are the ultimate hosts. With the help of their team (Piedro and other locals), they've created a home-away-from-home at Rogers. In the heart of the old town, the hostel is walking distance to all the central spots - the beach, tapas bars, nightclubs and the theatre/river area. At night, €5 meals (paella is out of this world!) in the cosy kitchen is a great start before a night out on the town or catching up with locals in town. Staying there is a must!
Friendly staff - hosts and hostesses with the mostest! :) and a cosy, relaxed atmosphere. Only 10 minute walk from city centre and close to Raday Utca (foodie street around the corner from hostel), Central Market and Gellert Hill. Internet & breakfast included plus bathrooms, rooms and lounge are clean. Best hostel to stay at in Budapest.
More of a Hotel than a hostel, the Poryellaneum is clean, located on the University side of town with a beautiful garden and back court yard. Great sushi place (cheap and delicious) just down the road and a couple of blocks from the metro. Was lucky enough to be updgraded from a dorm to single room at no extra cost. Facilites clean and service very good. Check-out 9am but free luggage storage for day. Recommended for the quieter traveller looking for R&R and enjoys own company.
Check-in at reception too fast, no warmth, military-style set-up. 2nd shower out of order (so only one for entire floor of 20+ women) At 9am, fuse blew so no electricity in whole apt - fridge, lights and computer all out. It's a military-barracks designed to sleep - that's it. No atmosphere, warmth or hospitalilty. Need JUST a place to sleep - that's all this offers.
Looking for warm hospitality, cosiness and a Budapest experience? Definitely choose Goat Hostel. Steve is your host and can't do enough for you. The breakfast, kitchen, shower and computer facilities are great and the lounge with tv and dvds gives hostel a real homeliness. Bring earplugs though as traffic noisy on main road. Hostel on Pest side on edge of tourist part of city - 10min walk to centre. Visit Central Market - just down the road - ground floor for great bargins and fresh local food.
Stayed at Sleepzone,Galway & Connemara. Would recommend both highly. Great ambience at each hostel - esp Connemara. Hostel is cosy, great ambience, excellent kitchen facilities (both) and great layout. Cleanliness at Connemara is impeccable. They should go world-wide!
