    I had a great stay from the moment I arrived. Niki was very informative and I even got a free upgrade to a single room, instead of my 8 bed room. The room was clean and the bed and pillow very comfy. My only suggestion is to take a shower at night or early in the morning.

    Loved our stay here! We extended it by 2 nights. Budapest is incredible to explore and here you can get a good nights sleep! Not a party hostel but still has walking tours and pub crawls they can link you with! Also joining restaurant has fantastic food, we love it here! Also a curtain on your bed is great for privacy. Only issue is water is often lukewarm which isn’t nice in November!

    Nice hostel, slept in 10 Bed female dorm and there is loads of privacy. Really enjoyed my stay as it was calm and not a party hostel. Bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner but would definitely recommend.

    I stayed for four night in the 8 female only dorms on the ground floor. The bed were comfy and the curtains added and extra level of privacy which is great. The girls at reception were always with a smile and ready to help you. The only thing is that the shower wall tiles could have a good deep clean other than that everything was perfect. Location is amazing as well!!

    I loved staying at this hostel. It’s a bit pricier than other Budapest options, but well worth it. The rooms were great, the bunk beds offered lots of privacy and space, and the bathrooms were nice as well. Common area was cool, and location was great, plus staff was helpful. All around, would 100% recommend this place to anyone going to Budapest.

    In general loved the hostel. Wasn’t aware that bookings through website had to be paid in cash which was a bit of a surprise on arrival. Really liked the privacy of the beds and the lockers were good size. No bar/food but linked to restaurant next door which had very good food. Would return.
