Location wi-fi staff
The location is great; staff will help you with everything you need in no time- very responsive to our requests; internet was perfectly working.
great location very friendly and helpful staff who gave lots of ideas of what to do and how to get to different parts of budapest! Sorted a transfer to the airport stated how much things would cost just what we needed to make our stay in budapest a good one!! Couldn't recommend more very good for a group of friends wanting to be near everything
The warm welcome. The respect of our comment made during the reservation of 2 rooms. We asked to have the rooms next to each other, we received 2 rooms which communicate. High five Csaba! The place is really cool, with a inner courtyard to chill and prepare the evening. 11 peoples, all had a great time :)
Hi We were a group of 5 guys. The flat is max 5 minutes near Ferenciek-tere M3 stop and really easy to reach with informations given by Csaba. The younger guy "Milan" took us to our warm, clean and comfortable flat. He spent more than 1 our with us answering to all our questions about everything that concern the city for example: public transports, monuments, clubs....so a very helpful peraon. Flat is near the famous Vaci Utca so a very good position for a great price.
Its location is ideal and the staff is very friendly and helpful!!
Certain things were broken (shower, toilet seat, small water leakage in kitchen)
The best: The guy from the hostel explain us the most important things around the city. Trip'd be different if he doesn't it. Thank you. We are ten people. The hostel has been very confortable. We have not any complaint.
Please, take this hostel, is the best
We received an email before we even got to the hostel with handy tips for arriving and other information which was above and beyond. The staff that greeted us were fantastic, super friendly, and extremely helpful. The dorms we booked were being redone so we got upgraded to a two bedroom apartment at no extra cost. This was just one street over from the reception, and the staff member took us there and then gave us a 15 minute run down of what to do and see which was awesome. They made us feel very welcome and made our stay in Budapest the highlight of our trip.
The staff were fantastic, we loved having our own flat. Privacy was great, and we felt very safe.
The WiFi was spotty, and the flat was a little tricky to find (no sign or banner, etc)
I highly recommend this hotel, they do everything perfect even in detail,before arrive Budapest they have sent email to show how to go to the hotel and some suggestion of exchange, after they knew we are couple in honeymoon, they upgraded our room into a full suite, and introduced a lot of useful travel info. When we checked in,the location is downtown, the suite is clean , tidy and every electrical equipment you need in your own house can be find here, it's a great experience to choose this hotel.
The owner was extremely helpful, (even driving us in his car to a car-rental agency at the end of our stay). We stayed at the "Happy Flat" - which was large and well equiped, and the location was excellent - On a quiet street only a 30 second walk from the pedestrian mall night-life, with a food mart on the way.
Everything was good.
Loved this hostel! Was so central and easy to find and the staff were super helpful!
Fantastic location . Quiet and very secure . Very good value for money . The owner , Csaba provided us with very helpful information prior to our arrival, by email , and then more information after our arrival . He explained in detail everything we needed to know to make the most of our time , day and night , and we did . He also gave excellent recommendations on where to eat . He was available on the premises or by phone if we needed anything . Our stay in Budapest was enjoyable and easy
Perfect location in the city center, ideal place for backpackers. The best place, if you want just have a sleep. Very helpful owner, which gave to us all of informations about the city and activities in there.
The owner was very, very helpful and he helped arrange our transfers from the airport. The location was brilliant.
This is an apartment building where they rent out the rooms and not a hostel in the common sense of the word. The wifi only worked in part of the flat. The beds were not very comfortable.
Spacious, good location
Comfort in the bathroom, in the kitchen we missed some.smaller things.
Arrived late evening and there was a very helpful member of staff waiting to give all the information we needed .Aperfect location in district five ,I thoroughly recommend.
A fairly weak wi fi.
