    Beautiful place with amazing staff who are so friendly and welcoming, it seems like it’d be a really good place for a solo traveller!! We stayed an extra night because we loved it so much, and we’ve both said when we come back to Budapest we’d stay here again!

    I intended to stay with Big Fish hostel for 2 days but I ended up extending for a week. The hostel atmosphere is very cozy and intimate. The staffs are super friendly and easy going (Hi Beatrice!). They clean twice a day which I really appreciated. You have an option to do laundry for an extra charge as well. The location is ideal and walking distance to everything. I highly recommend!

    Absolutely loved my stay here- probably my best Christmas yet! I can't praise the staff enough- I would trust them to deal with any situation perfectly and safely. Location is ideal, the hostel is kept tidy and very secure and all the facilities worked well (great Wi-Fi) . The atmosphere is probably the best thing about this hostel with staff and guests feeling like a big family. Honestly can't reccomend Big Fish enough. Thank you!!

    Fantastic hostel! One of the best I’ve stayed in. Loved the set up of the treehouse room! Bathrooms were very clean and always available when needed. Overall vibe was very cozy and I felt very much at home for my 3 nights here. Was looking for a more low key hostel as I was fighting a bad cold and looking to get some quality rest - Big Fish was exactly the atmosphere I was looking for. Staff organizes activities everyday but there’s no pressure to participate if you aren’t feeling it.

    My stay at Big Fish was woven with splendid minds and wanting ears, a throw-back of my co-op days running conversations in the kitchen where you forget what time is - a feat that takes a special blend of people to accomplish, and I have all the volunteers to thank. Wishing nothing but the best for your future endeavors. Maybe the carpets could be vacuumed more often. Maybe the dinner table could be less crumby (big part on the crumby guests). But what a lovely home it has been.

    Nice hostel with helpful staff, the only bad thing is that beds in the 10 beds room were very noisy, so it was not possible to sleep well. It's a small hostel but it's nice..

    Bigfish is a cute hostel in a great location, easy to walk to the main sights, cafes and nightlife. Felt safe and the staff were friendly, but my brother and I were 2 of about 5 paying guests staying there as it was a quiet period. So the staff/volunteers out-numbered us and took over most of the common space and there wasn't much room to just "chill" or have some quiet time. Luckily the woman's dorm was very spacious! I would stay there again.

    The first impression was very cosy and sweet, as you need to take your shoes off and stuff. But when you have hipster party people in there not respecting your need to rest and partying in the common spaces, you don't feel very welcome and respected. The staff didn't say anything about it, even when quiet times were from 11pm.
