Score from 179 reviews Excellent
Staff is very helpful and location is perfect, center of Pest and close to metro, supermarket, cafes. Also a quiet place.
Wifi in the dorms was not working.
The hostel is really well located and the staff is very nice and cordious. It's also a quiet place, even being right next to a busy street.
At the time, the wifi in the bedrooms area was not working.
Staff were friendly and facilities were nice
There wasn't enough cash behind the desk so none of us recieved change from our payment which was quite unprofessional and disappointing. There was also another group of people staying at the hostel who stayed up till 6am making noise without any staff asking them to be quiet.
The staff is absolutely helpful and friendly!! Whatever you ask and require, they are always kind and nice to answer and help. The location is pretty good! You can easily reach any point in city center by walk.
Internet is a weakness, wifi is almost not working in room just in lobby. There is only one key in every room so that I can't have the key to lock the door at night, that is a bit annoying...
The staff were great!
Staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly Zofia and the girl who greeted me when I arrived. The rooms are attractive, with brightly painted walls, and each bunk has it's own reading light :-). The kitchens and bathrooms were spotlessly clean!
There were some loud people having a party in the common room at night...and although I had opted for a "quiet room" it was still pretty close to the action!
the best thing was the ubication
It was difficult climbing the bunk bed
Frontdesk personels were very polite.it was near everywhere.my room was so clean.also i met 2 guys from Spain in there.they are so funny.if i go to budapest,absolutely i will stay there one more time.thank you so much for everything
Me and my friend booked an 8-bed room. We hitchhiked from Poland to Budapest, so we got there very late. The receptionist told us that we are lucky, because there was a group who came together and wanted to stay in one room. So we stayed in 4-bed room for the same price, and next two nights we were alone, so actually we payed for 2-bed room for the 8-bed price! :D Also, there was no problem for us to stay one night more when we asked if there is any opportunity to do so. We came there unprepared to sightsee the city. But it wasn't a problem - The staff was always ready to help us! They gave us some leaflets, maps, told us about places where we should go and for the night - we had some good clubs recommended. If you go to Budapest - you should visit the ruin pubs and clubs (; It's a great place for young and crazy people!
The biggest contraindications we had to the bathroom (not sure if there was only one or if there was a second one in the other part of the hostel)- it was not enough, including all the rooms for the use. One of two toilets had a breakdown, one of two showers was clogged. The soap dish was empty, sometimes there was no toilet paper.
Warm people in reception. Good situation I felt very confortable and welcome each moment
Great location, just a few steps from the metro station and within a walking distance from many of the touristic places. Rooms were clean and organized. Super friendly staff, I will definitely come back!
Bathrooms could be cleaner and they don't provide towels.
Great location, cheap, very helpful staff, clean and comfortable.
