    Hospitable staff. Clean and sturdy beds. Not a party hostel. It was pretty quiet, but that’s what I was looking for. In a busy central part of the city too. That was a plus. The free walking tour starts right outside. Close to many things on the Pest side. Could use more things like hooks or shelves in the bathroom.

    Had a great stay at the hostel. We were first confused how and where to enter because it's hidden inside a giant house. Staff was very nice and very helpful. The beds are dorm bunk beds but the mattress was surprisingly compfy. And I love that you have privacy because of the curtains. The bath is nice, clean and big. They also had kitchen facilities in the common area.

    Really nice hostel! It's got a great location in the middle of everything. The kitchen is nice to cook in and the bathrooms and showers are basic but clean. The rooms/beds are cool. There's a nice common area with couches next to the kitchen. Would stay here again!

    Very good location as it was right next to lots of different public transport. Bit noisy but not an issue. Staff were lovely. Bathroom facilities were individual and clean

    The location of the hostel was great. However, I didn't sleep once through the night in my 6 nights at this hostel. I had a private room with a bathroom which was great. Howeverr, the room stunk so bad, clean but smelled horribly!! Not only that, whenever someone showered or turned on the water or something, it sounded like the rish of water through the piping was right next to my ear. It was legit scary, especially when you'd be asleep and wake up at 3 am to that sound.

    Enjoyable stay if you don’t really want an atmosphere. Unfortunately as a solo traveller kind of need that there is a common area but it isn’t used and there is no way to meet people. The rooms themselves are really great though with curtains and power supply but pretty basic amenities

    We spoke to the hostel about late check in and they said it would okay, however when we arrived there was no key left for us. We had to sleep in our car for the night which was not ideal.

    This place is cheap with a great location. Nice beds and a clean place. Unfortunately this place is barely staffed and is close to impossible to communicate with. I also lost some stuff that was not stolen by the ones in my room.

    Our experience in the hostel wasn't very positive. The receptionist was very unpleasant and rude, she was aggressive about each of our questions, and showed to be impatient while checking us in. We arrived at 14.30 and she informed us our bedroom wasn't ready - even though check in was at 14h -, instead of apologizing for the inconvenience, she told us we had to seat and wait for more 15-20min. Wi-Fi wasn't working for most of our time there.

    I had very unpleasant check-in. I arrived in time for check-in but nobody was opening. I called number in confirmation mail but nobody was answering. After 15 mins of ringing and calling one guest opened and called stuff. Guy who arrived (“Lukash”) was aggressive and started blaming me for not arriving “when I said I will”. He clearly doesn’t know Hostelworld app doesn’t ask guests for arrival time. Those guys don’t know their jobs. Otherwise, hostel has zero atmosphere. Wouldn’t stay again.
