    Small hostel which is very close to the Budapest Keleti train station, but about a 40 minute walk to the city center. When I arrived, I was assigned to a 6-bed dorm which had three men in it already. I went out for a while, and when I returned, the staff moved me to another room where I was the only girl - I really appreciated this! The bathrooms were clean, and the lockers were good in the first bedroom, but I could not find any lockers in the second bedroom which I was moved to.

    If you are looking for a place to sleep over for 1-2 nights and rest it's a good option, but if you're a solo traveler and want to meet people this is not a place for you. There's no hostel atmosphere that much, but the guy who works as a receptionist is friendly. The place is clean but renovation is needed (since it's in the old building with high ceiling and the bathroom looks rly old). The location is good, it's right next to the Keleti station (metro and train) so connection is great.

    ”Amazing location if you have an early morning train to catch. Make sure to read ”how to get here” as it can be a bit difficult for some people.The guy working in the reception is very kind and happy to answer questions. Equipped kitchen and nice rooms. Not really a common room so perfect for just a place to sleep.

    Quite hostel in a less touristic area of town. Acceptably clean and comfortable but no atmosphere and kinda grumpy staff.

    Hard to find at night, there are definitely much better hostels in Budapest. I chose it because it was near one of the train stations but I regret it.

    This definitely was not a hostel for someone who wanted to meet new people. This place was very small and I did not meet even one other person while I was there (I think I shared a room with the owner?). It was clean and quiet but kind of far from the city center and not what I expected. I would definitely recommend for other people traveling alone to book one of the other hostels closer to the center or something near there.

    Staff is rude, unfriendly. The room was not in the hostel but in 15min walking time so we were in a completely different neighbourhood than planned. There was no running water in the whole apartment. The apartment was ok though. All in all I don't recommend this hostel even for 1 night.
