We are all quick to offer tips to ensure you fall in love with Budapest as much as we have and can arrange activities during the day and free staff led meandering pub crawls and other events at night to allow you to make the most of your time in the city. If you are a group please don't hesitate to contact us in advance to help organise and book your day time as well as night time activities!

Free Wi-Fi in every room, communal computers and free printing. Free linen and towel hire. Free city maps, lockers, luggage room. Padlock hire.

We have a 24-hour reception and check in but only if we know your arrival time so that we are ready for you, so please check your arrival time carefully as we can only ensure your bed for 3 hours after this time. If you are arriving between 00:00 and 08:00 it's very important you let us know so we can have a staff member ready for you. Without any prior contact the reception will be closed between 00:00 and 08:00.
You will be required to pay your balance in cash upon arrival.

When you come into the city, please do not change up any money from the airport, or train stations as they have rip off rates. Wait until you get here and we will point you towards the cheapest exchange places. We only accept cash but you can pay in Euros if required.

Regrettably, due to previous experience, we can no longer accept bookings for people under 18 or over 40. If you have booked and are outside of this age please contact us and we will help find you alternative accommodation.

Please note that Budapest has incredibly strict drug laws and we will be enforcing these heavily. Anyone found under the influence of drugs, in possession of drugs or enquiring about drugs during their stay with us will be evicted immediately without refund.
