    Nina is awesome at reception and was quick to give me last minute suggestions before I headed out for the day. Everyone at the front desk is an angel! Thank you!

    Super hostel in the best location. While rooms are a little small, plenty of room to store your stuff and very secure. Staff are so friendly and go out of their way to help and make sure invite you to activities. Just two little things I spotted. More markers and stickers needed to label food in the kitchen and food should be cleared out daily to ensure nothing is rotting as I noticed. Locks on some of the toilets didn’t work.

    The Maverick Lodge was a very fun and convenient place to stay in Budapest. The value was great and the space was quite safe and comfortable, in a good location.

    Lovely staff and nice reception area etc. We had a private double room, which was lovely and clean, however we had no hot water and the shower sometimes cut out, which was annoying in a more expensive room. Staff were very helpful and I’m sure would’ve tried to rectify the issue had I gone to reception however it was late by the time I showered. Overall the hostel was lovely and had I been in a cheaper dorm I would’ve been extremely happy with it

    Clean, polished, modern hostel in an interesting and cool part of Budapest. The room I stayed in was a little bit crowded, but I really appreciated the curtains for privacy and the individual lights/plug sockets for each bed. Staff were also friendly and helpful. Not much of a social scene at the hostel. There is a bar crawl on offer, so if you’re not massively into partying it may be more challenging to meet other travellers. If there are/were other social events, I wasn’t made aware of them.

    Good Lication and easy to find... I stayed one night at Female dorm and another night at mixed dorm as that was last minute booking... Female dorms and washroom connected to that area is good. But mixed dorm washrooms are bad..

    Really nice location, and the staff seemed nice and approachable. Beds were spacious and with a good privacy curtain, hooks, light and an outlet. I really appreciated that there was enough showers and bathrooms that I never had to wait. However, the cleanliness was not good: hair everywhere in the bathrooms, overfilled trash cans, and crumbs, hair and a q-tip left behind by the bed.

    Very Good

    Hostel arranged airport pick up which was really smooth, location was good and staff were really friendly. Didn't use the kitchen but there was free tea/coffee which was nice. Room was very narrow which is fine for sleeping (bunks had curtains and their own power which was fantastic) but the space felt really tight because there was older guy in the room who seemed to be in all the time. Bring your bathroom jandals as this one was functional but not spotless.

    Beds are nice and clean, bathroom floors looked like they hadn’t been cleaned in a while though so bring flip flops! Not really any kind of atmosphere. Drier was broken so couldn’t do any washing and they didn’t seem to be doing anything about it over the 3 days I was there. You can only pay in cash which is a bit annoying as what traveller carries around a lot of cash with them? It would be good if they specify this before actually arriving so you don’t have to trek out to an ATM. Overall okay.
