At first I was a bit skeptical about this hostel but Ive learned to not judge a book by its cover.
We arrived after taking the bus from central station about 2 stops. We didnt have much trouble finding the street. At night it maybe harder but during day it was fine.
Rang the bell and were let into this old, century building which had a lot of character. The staff are very friendly. But this is more like an apartment rather than a hostel. Small, around 7bedrooms. No locks on some of the rooms and some rooms have other rooms attached. But I was never concerned with security or privacy.
Beds were not the most comfortable, and the pillows were very small, but for the price it was definitely worth it. There were only 2 showers and 2 toilets but I never had to wait for either one. Showers were on the small side. The kitchen/fridge was good to have as we went to the convenience store to buy wine/food for breakfast. The common room was small but cozy and we were able to just chill the first night with some new mates and watch movies. Their movie collection is very impressive!
Budapest is a beautiful city and Green bridge hostel was a great choice for affordable, comfortable accommodations. The staff were young and friendly.. recommended some amazing restaurants and helped us with a taxi to the train station the day we left. Overall a good experience and well worth the price!!!
