Great location in the city centre, great and friendly staff.
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 ;)
If you're smart people intending to visit Budapest, Zen Hostel is the best place to stay: Strategical location in the center where all the things happens (30 seconds walk), great hospitality, 100% privacy, sympathetic and very helpful staff around the clock. They will give you the best offers for the tours and buses. You can leave your staff at the hostel it's very safe. Don't forget the very competitive price for the package. you won't find it elsewhere!! Emy, Anncsa and Family, Keep up the good Work!! waiting to visit you the next time!
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!
Very friendly Staff, available to solve any kind of issue/inconvenient. Familiar environment. Really central position and clean. They have provided me with really good advice on what to visit and I've really loved the free guided walking tour from Hostel Culture they suggested me to do. I would definitively go back and I really suggest it to people who travel alone and who don't mind sharing the room with others.
staffs are hospital and helpful. good location and economical choice. old building but cozy interior design. the bar restraunt cooprated with the hostle is great!(the guest of hostle gets a coupon of the bar) very good experience stay with Zen.
small room, easy being disturbed by other guests, or being a dusturbing guest.
Amazing location Comfy and well priced rooms Imi is incredibly helpful Very clean and secure
Excellent staff who was helpful with planning days in Budapest. Great location close to metro
Very thin walls. Can hear everything.
