Great staff and location
Great location, staff very helpful.
An owner - he told us everything about Budapeszt, what to visot, were to eat. He gave us discounts for cafe and clubs. Nice guy :-)
The smell of gas in one room and cockroaches!
Fantastic location on the island looking over the Danube, with a sports bar next door for a refreshing beer. Staff fantastic and very helpful!!
Its not a hostel, but a flat. Getting there, I was received personaly, and he explained to me about the city, gave me some discount vouchers. Also, I was supposed to stay in a different flat, but they had some problems and moved me to a bigger one, no additional cost.
Its not a hostel, but a flat. Seems somewhat improvised... The bed was small and not very comftable. He did offer me to set up the bed in the living room, which was bigger, but I said no.
The staff were very helpful and the appartment was perfect.
host was very~kind
Excelent location - right in the centre. Excelent room condition. We were told about most interesting places.
Our own personal studio-like place!
Noise from neighbor easily heard.
The landlord was really Nice and concerned by our stay, he gave us reduction tickets and good places to go in the city. The room was perfect for a group of friends: very practical, two bathrooms, a big room for relaxing and eating. The Happy Hostel is very well situated, we did evrything by foot ! The decoration could have been more girly or warm but This is really optional comparer to ôter things that were perfect!
All the Little advises, the safety and the proximity to the commercies. The access to the television, and solo bathroom.
Perfect location. The owner was flexible with check-out and payment. That is a huge plus when you're a large group.
The Internet was unstable.
Location is really good, just need about 5 minutes walk to the central metro station. There was just 2 people in my trip, the staff gave us a big room which can fit 6 people. The room is clean, Staffs are really kind and good service. We arrived around at 1am in the morning they still help us to check in.
The mattress is not comfortable and the beds are quite small. Also I think they should provide extra duvet in the room, the original one is too thin.
The personal was very helpful and gave useful tips.
They give us appartmen t .big but not good beds
everything is good
Excellent. Staff was knowledgable and helpful. Nice space, lots of room, excellent location. I recommend 100%
Real nice welcome. Upgraded room. Comfy beds. Right on the edge of The Jewish Quarter, exactly where you want to be. Kitchen was good.
The fact that is wasn't all uptight.
That there was no sign outside with happy hostel.
Great owner/manager, awesome facilities and everything is available, including cable tv, electric kettle and dual band router.
I did not care but just for information, there is no fan or air con there.
