    It really was a ten out of ten. Very clean, safe and free dinners if the hostel is booked fully. Free breakfast everyday I believe. Staff was very friendly and fun.

    All of the hostels which I stayed at during my time in Budapest (Grandio, Vitae, and Hostel One Basilica) were amazing, but this one truly stands out for exceptional staff. I only stayed at the hostel for one night, but really felt at home. I came back two days later to meet up with a friend, and the lady behind reception still remembered my full name. With the hundreds of faces that come through here everyday, I was amazed that she knew who I was even though we only had one brief encounter.

    Perfect location, friendly staff, amazing activities during the day and night - overall the best hostel experience that you can get! Stayed here just for a night and made so many great friends and an experience to cherish for life (the pub crawl is crazy!).

    Originally booked for two nights and ended up staying for three. The staff are super helpful and sociable. They are more than happy to help you with any need you have. A couple things the hostel could work on: -using fitted sheets over the mattresses. The mattresses are irritating when having direct contact with the skin. -the kitchen ware was limited. There was only one medium sized pot to cook with for the entire hostel. -cleanliness in the kitchen was a real issue.

    The staff were so so nice and happy to help with anything. The location is ideal, everything is walking distance. The atmosphere wasn’t that great though, more grouped and cliquey- but that’s a hit or miss in all hostels. Also a dormmate hooked up with someone in our dorm and woke the entire room up before puking... not cool. The activities offered were a nice touch, plus the beds were comfortable. So pros and cons, I’d look for one with better vibes next time but still an alright place

    clean, friendly, comfy beds. awesome location. wifi was in and out but worked enough and was good when it did work. First night, some guy was screwing a chick on our bunk beds. not cool. second night a group came in screaming and being so loud and turned on all the lights at 3:30 am and staff said nothing to them and even told my friend in the morning that she would say something. but next day is too late. overall a good place but not for a good nights sleep

    The hostel was not advertised as it should have been and we were very disappointed with all aspects. The staff was unprofessional and we were left outside waiting 10 minutes in the rain before letting us in. Our beds were poorly maintained and the linens stained. The kitchen and dining are were cluttered and without clean dishes, and the showers had black mold in every corner. The staff were underwhelming. We ended up moving out to a hotel before our stay was complete; it was THAT bad.
