    I had a great 3 day stay at Big Fish, in the 10 bed female dorm. Turns out, I ended up being the only one in the room the entire time, so it was like having a huge private room! It was a very chill environment, felt like there wasn’t that much going on, except for occasional movie nights and outings. The staff were all very friendly and the facilities were very homey and clean. Highly recommend!

    Loved this hostel, has a small warm vibe to it. The bathrooms have a shower in it which make it feel a lot more homey. They also have shampoo, conditioner, and other useful items that other travelers have left. Super close to popular spots to go out, location was very convenient. Staff was easy to talk to as well.

    This hostel really has a good vibe. Extremely friendly and helpful staff (mostly international) and a great location. Extremely clean, and there are four private showers which is great. The rooms are quite spacious.

    By far the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff is very helpful and organizes events everyday those of which made my experience in Budapest unforgettable. It truly felt like I was staying at a friend's house. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and the kitchen/common area is comfortable and inviting. It's a small hostel but that adds to the charm and coziness. I felt like I immediately had a bunch of friends from the first day I was there. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone.

    Had a great stay in Budapest. Perfekt for Solotravelers - feels like a home away from home. Super easy to meet people especially with having the volunteers around.

    I had overall a really great stay at this hostel. Reception was there 24/7 and all the staff was very friendly and helpful. They had a great common space and kitchen you could use. The bathrooms were clean and nice. They had lockers in the rooms and offered events you could participate in everyday with other people in the hostel. Definitely would recommend!

    Best hostel I've stayed at for the vibe. Chilled, super small but social. The volunteer crew makes it, shout out to Emmeli and the crew! Would stay here again in a heartbeat

    Really loved this hostel, it’s definitely different than any other I’ve stayed in. Everyone was really friendly, and it has a very homey vibe. It’s a very small hostel but I liked that about it. Wish I could have stayed longer!

    I hate to say it, but I don’t get all the good reviews. The bed was comfortable, but that’s about it. Staff didn’t seem to try to engage or give recommendations and mostly kept to themselves or hung out with eachother. Not the ideal place for a solo traveler.
