    The hostel was so great! The volunteers really create a nice atmosphere. The bed are comfy, it's clean, the showers were good. They had activities organized, most people were going out all together every night! Staff was super friendly and really helpful. The receptionist was from Budapest and had great advice! The common area is small so everybody ends up talking altogether. I loved my stay there!

    Best hostel ever thanks to the volunteers that create the vibe! Kindness is the word to describe the atmosphere in this hostel. In a group or alone, to visit or party, you will always find your place at Big Fish. I had the chance to find new friends that I’m sure I’ll see again. We went out to ruin bars from the first day, went to local and authentic baths, did a walking tour through Budapest and even went on a road trip to Lake Balaton. Special thanks to Yann, Laura, Diego. Jane, Ben & Alex !

    My stay at Big Fish was beyond amazing. The lovely volunteers Carmen, Laura, Ben, Yann and Miguel made me feel right at home. This hostel has an awesome vibe, is very clean and has everything you need! Free towels and a great kitchen! It’s super well located — 5 min away from numerous bars and clubs, there are metros and trams near by and it is walking distance from most Pest side attractions. Felt so safe here, highly recommend!

    As soon as I arrived at the first room where u leave your shoes, I already liked the homey vibe of this place. Everything is simple but effective. The common area is together with kitchen or reception, and both places have comfy couches and art. At the kitchen, there's a board with activities promoted by the hostel, but unfortunately, they postponed for too long one of the activities, because it's led by volunteers that need to work too. Actually, volunteers are usually nicer than some staff.

    Great clean Hostel! I really enjoyed staying here and I will come back again! My only note was that the coffee machine wasn't working when I was there.

    Located in older building that is well-maintained. You can’t wear shoes in the hostel. Easy to find, lots of stores and cafes nearby. No real common area, just the kitchen/dining area. Can get loud and rowdy, but they adhere to a 11 p.m. to 8 a.m. quiet time. Street noise might bother some - lots of sirens. Room was fine for March, but might be stuffy in the summer ( they have fans). Toilet and shower in same spot - might have to wait. Staff was helpful.

    The actual rooms don’t have a lock on the door, but I didn’t feel like someone was going to come into my room and take something. You have to have a key code to enter the building and the hostel. Plus the fact that they give you a padlock and key to lock up your things was a big plus. If you have a really big suitcase you won’t be able to lock it up though. My least favorite part was the fact that upstairs in the rooms there is very little light. Also, there are no hooks too hang up a coat.
