Score from 323 reviews Very good
It is super clean, staff is very cool and it is close to the main attraction bars etc.. and also in a very silent location.
Expect the bunkers are gritting. It is really annoying at night when somebody is rolling in his bed.
I have to say that the location is perfect as I did not spend any money in the metro during my stay in Budapest! The staff was very very helpful and he provided me with the sufficient information about the city. Also the wifi signal is perfect. Strongly recommend.
The housekeepers were very nice and gave lots of advice and tips. The room was clean and well decorated.
It was a bit tricky to find as there is no sign outside. The shower was only a handheld faucet.
Staff was great and super helpful! The dorm is spacious! Great location. I like that it's not a party hostel, it was like coming home in a safe environment.
Great location in the city centre, great and friendly staff.
The room was spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable. It was located right in the heart of the city - within easy walking distance of many attractions, including St Stephen's Basilica and the Opera House. The hosts were wonderfully kind and had great suggestions of thing to see and do.
The taxi drivers did not seem to know where it was, so I got lost gettting there.
Poor Wi-Fi in room Room was very hot at night Difficult to locate (small sign over call box is all)
Imi who owns the guesthouse is so friendly and kind, he even left a personal message and chocolate bar for me when I checked in. It is a flat converted into a guest house so you feel really at home. Quiet room so great for sleeping, comfy beds and great location. Perfect!
The building where the guesthouse is needs a bit of work but don't let that put you off, once inside it is very homely and clean.
really friendly and helpful staff. It is a small hostel, but if you are looking to party then the owner is very helpful and will tell you the best places to go.
The hostel's location is in downtown so that it is easy to visit this city. And staffs were nice that I got many informations about Budapest. In additions, the hostel is clean and silent atmosphere, so I took a nice break.
How awesome the staff was.
The general conditions of the building as a whole, even though the hostel was in really good conditions inside.
Good advice from the staff and close to a metro point, so traveling around Budapest was easy. We stayed in the studio apartment which was clean, and well layed out. Very good hostel A++.
The hostel sign can be easly missed, lookout for the rather small zen hostel sign beside the door.
The owner and the location were perfect
Excellent location, friendly, attentive staff, cosy atmosphere
Only one toilet/bathroom for the dorm beds, so time your departure well
everything staff - kind, helpful, flexible, position - center of center, could not be better really - best hostel experience ever
Great location smack downtown Budapest, enthusiastic owner/contact, friendly atmosphere, great value-for-money
Only one bathroom/toilet, plan your slot wisely ;)

Everything was great. We had the studio and it was perfect. Totul a fost minunat. Noi ne-am cazat in studio si a fost perfect.
The perfect place to rest and close to the main atractions for do everything by walk
The mattress could be more comfortable
I would highly recommend this lovely hostel to anyone who wants to stay in Budapest. The staff were super friendly & informative. The beds were so comfy & everything was clean & tidy. The location was also great. It has some of the best restaurants in town just a stroll up the street and a little bit further down the road you are in the centre of it all. great access to metro & other transport. Thank you Zen for your hospitality.
Good location, helpful staff, overall cleanliness
the stuff was really friendly! i really enjoyed my stay there and would recommend it to everybody how doesnt want to stay in a noisy place
everything was just greet
We had a private Studio and it was very cozy. Imi helped us to find everythING we wanted to visit.
Beds were not as confortable as we thought.
This hostel was exceptionally good value for money. The wifi worked well, I used the kitchen to cook a couple of times, and the bathroom was fine. Imi was very helpful and gave us vouchers and maps for various attractions around the city - and loaned us towels for the thermal baths which was great. The location was basically perfect, I would definitely recommend it - very central, right next to the Basilica and in an area that felt safe that was also close to the ruin bars and other main attractions.
The room was right next to the kitchen and bathroom so you could hear every little noise. The walls were very thin so you could also hear even the TV in the reception room. So really this depends on the people there and whether they are considerate enough to try and be quiet. I would bring earplugs next time - but it wouldn't stop me from going back!
