    Super clean, spacious rooms. Giant kitchen with multiple stoves, sinks, dishwashers, fridges, etc. Great staff and location. Main lobby is comfortable to hangout in and had plenty of computers available for use if needed.

    Honestly a great option for a really nice price. We stayed in the 8 person female dorm and it was super cool and well taken care of. You're so close to a ton of stuff and the staff is incredibly helpful. Definitely wish we'd had had more time to stay!

    Maverick City Hostel is the perfect place to stay in Budapest. A fantastic location in the heart of the city, a one minute walk from Szimpla Kert. Incredible value for money. A special shoutout to Dory, the best receptionist in Budapest who was always kind and willing to offer us lots of advice on things to do around the city.

    Excellent location. Situated right in the centre of old town with historic architecture and typucal european style. Very clean country compared to the western Europe where the word cleanness can only be found in dictionary. Very calm and peacifying, with bistros all nearby. I enjoyed very much my stay there esoecially after the dangerous Amsterdam. The weather was excellent too. I strongly recommend to those who want to see what a typical Europe must look like. Thanks for your service guys.

    Good restaurant within the hostel, staff not that great. Showers were usually cold and weak. Staff looked down at you and didn't really want to be there. Good location as everything is in walking distance, small supermarket just round the corner. 2 minute walk to the ruin bars.
