    Great little hostel! The room was very roomy - great for both our groups of 6 and 7! The staff were very helpful and accommodating - let us check in a bit late as we emailed them early. The location was absolutely perfect; not even a 5 minute walk from the best bars and clubs. Great place, would stay again!

    This hostel was so wonderful! If you enjoy an apartment style hostel this is for you, it was one of my favorites. The kitchen is awesome along with the bathrooms and all on the same pad. Would 100 percent recommend.

    Pretty grotty building but the hostel itself was fine. Spacious and clean. Traffic noise was terrible and even with earplugs in I found it hard to get to sleep. Probably wouldn't recommend if you a light sleeper. Handy to metro.

    My partner and I recently stayed in the apartments, was cheap and perfect for our time in Budapest. I had become particularly unwell, so being able to have a kitchen and private facilities was just what I needed. Lots of restaurants around here as well and small supermarket down the road. About a 20 minute walk to get from the bus that drops you off from the airport to the hostel. My partner and I walk everywhere in new cities, and Budapest is the perfect city to visit on foot.

    More like a home than a hostel which was a nice touch! Super close to the centre which was ideal! The female dorm room was lovely, The balcony was lovely! Staff were so nice! Felt at home right away. My only niggle is that the mattress, it's super thin and youbcab feel the springs but on that note I would stay again as everything else was great.

    We had a very disappointing stay. On arrival we were told they had ‘double booked’ and therefore we had paid for an en-suite room however ended up with a shared bathroom room... As a result they offered us €5 off, a three day stay which was just offensive. It was too late to try and find anywhere else as they did not tell us this until arrival. So if you book an en-suite room you might want to check it actually exists!

    That lady on the main desk! I confirmed with her that I will arrive late, she dint inform anything and when I arrived, she charged me 2 euros for late check-in (IN CASH). I PAID. She charged me 2 euros to store my luggage after check-out(NO ONE DOES. And there was not even storage/locker room, I have to keep it in hallway w/o any guarantee). I PAID. She charged me 17 euros for a broken window glass in my room( It broke it because of the wind) and she was soo damn rude!! Never going there again!
