    Offered more than i could have ever hoped for. 3 of the staff memebers took us to a live a music gig. I'm sure that this isn't the norm!

    The hostel is close to local amenities and attractions so it is a great stay for sight seeing in Budapest. The staff were kind and were happy to help us. The major downside for us was that there was no lock to our door room and the lockers were broken. So I was concerned about security for us and our belongings. Further, we were led to believe when making the booking that all taxes were inclided. But when we arrived we had to pay further tax. I will be contacting the hostel about this.

    overall terrible experience. no ventilation in the rooms so the windows were left open and i kept getting bit by mosquitoes. couldn’t sleep at all and when i asked for a refund the manager kept saying excuses to not give a refund. even suggested i get a refund from the roommate who opened the windows. very unprofessional. when i addressed the problem the staff weren’t surprised like it’s a common problem. whole hostel is dirty and the showers don’t work properly. definitely wouldn’t recommend.
