Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

31/8/23 Thursday late evening We three middle aged guys from London were looking for a late night drink. After checking out Habrolo (too noisy inside and too smokey outside) we decided to find this favourite bar from our visit in February 2022. We were surprised...to find it still exists as 'ruin pubs' are meant to be demolished eventually and the owners move on. Inside was the usual eclectic and alternative bunch of friendly people. The Soproni beers were still on the cheap side of 1000 for a proper half litre. The decor was pretty much the same but with 3D pictures. The men's toilet door latch was still working after I helped the staff repair it with a washer over a year ago! I looked it up on TA to get it back on the recently viewed list to review it now. TA said it was ' closed'! Definitely not!! I also found my review was still in the top three on the main page!! Crazy!! I went to the barman to explain my findings and he directed me to the boss who was sitting our side of the bar. She checked FB and Ggl to find they were correctly saying it was open. Obviously people who frequent here do not use TA!! The beer was good as usual and the cheapest wine was fine too! There seems to be a friend of the owners sitting by the door making sure no-one takes glasses outside. I remember the same from last year. We left after just the one drink this time to make our weary way home. Last year we had had a lot more to drink, maybe because lockdown had just relaxed and we were glad to be out!More

Great atmosphere, amazingly cheap, friendly staff. We found this place by accident but it was a definite win! Not overcrowded on Saturday night.

3,4 & 7/2/22 We three British middle aged guys were on a week break in BP. One of us had an online meeting at 20:00 so two of us went out to drink on a Thursday evening. Having had a beer and a half on...SCORE we explored more, heading for Kis Uzbek. On the way we passed by this bar and I looked it up. It looked interesting so in we went. Basically it was very very interesting crowd of alternative people. A large board showed drinks at good prices with local Soprani lager at hf600 - I ordered two and that was the price! There was no ‘service charge’ as in SCORE. A tattily dressed doorman was having issues with a couple of lary girls trying to take drinks outside. We settled at the edge and there was a really good vibe, almost hipster but more original with the odd late night girl’s group turning up at 23:30. I visited the loos at the back, saw a door ajar, pulled it, pulled it harder and something broke! Ooops. Someone was inside! I retreated and they emerged saying I had broken the door, I used the loo and the guy returned with a barman to show him the damage. Luckily the barman agreed there had already been issues with the door. Being a practical guy I suggested a washer which he translated as ‘olatid’. I did not get into trouble! It turned out the loos were unisex anyway despite the picture of a man on ‘my’ door and a toilet seat on the other! They were clean and working fine although graffiti covered walls were their style (after all it is a type of ‘ruin’ pub). I had seen a negative review of the toilet so want to it the record straight! Weirdly the dress code became like a Fisherman’s fancy dress with hats & sou’westers! The place was quite convivial and International as we chatted with some Brazilians! We liked the place enough to order another beer each including a Soproni IPA at 650. A feature of behaviour for some was to have unlit cigarettes in their mouths as they prepared to go out to smoke whilst marking their table with a scarf; risky in the busy pub but others respected it. The street outside has a constant group of smokers. We shared a final beer as it was around midnight and we vowed to return with our friends to this vibrant happy atmosphere with busy (but not rude as some have described) staff. My friend had actually checked in on another platform and tagged me, I added a pic of the toilet door ‘lock’ and the next day I got a direct message from the bar asking me what I meant! I explained what had happened. We three actually did return the next night on Friday to find a completely different crowd! It was far less alternative with more ‘normal’ people out for the weekend. It was as if they were visiting the ‘cool & rough’ place to add to their scorecard. It basically was not as much fun as a ‘school night’! I wonder where the Thursday night clientele were? I went to the loo to find that the door lock had been repaired with a washer and was solid and functional so I took another selfie by it! We only had a beer each and left as we were quite tired after we had had a drink in ‘Why Not?’ earlier after a concert. I messaged the bar later with the updated selfie, noting the repaired lock and explained what I felt of the weekend evening. They replied to say that we were welcome anytime. Obviously they want the custom so we vowed to try again. The management responded again to say we were welcome anytime. We three actually returned yet again on our final night in BP, a Monday, hoping to recapture that school night feel but again it was quite subdued and ordinary although it still had an alternative element. We stayed for two and a third beers each though. We noted at Szimpla Kert ‘Ruin Pub’ (visited ten years ago and still standing) on the way was totally packed with a queue outside on a Monday! Overall this is a great bar with friendly staff (if you are nice to them they are nice to you back!) and well priced good beer. Another craft beer was also on tap (Mort Subite at 1100) too. The toilet floor corners could do with scraping out the accumulated dirt (like most do) though ;-)!More

The Dzzs Bar is an eccentric and bohemian spot to meet locals and individual minds. Many creatives gather here like film directors, painters, and musicians in this cozy space with unique mural art. The interior is mixed up and not really matching but fitting excactly...the idea of this bar. Be creative and inspire seems to be the motto and all is allowed! The Dzzs Bar opens in the evenings and should be on your list for an authentic night out in Budapest´s party district, the Jewish district!More

This little bar has a lot going for it: a super cozy atmosphere, friendly staff (girl behind the bar with the bandana, you're the coolest), cheap prices and tasty brews. I'd recommend it to anyone looking to get the real feel of Budapest :)

Among the myriad ruin-pubs and fancy bars in the area, Dzzs bar is a hidden little funky gem. A small bar that reminds me of the lounge of a railway-station or an airport in the matter of the public: people of all ages, from different...social classes, with different cultures and languages gives the inimitable atmosphere of it. I just love that weird, inexplicable mixture of people and moods, strangers talking to each other, the genuine figures in the bar, the great music always adjusted to what is in the air. Dzzs is like a an intergalactic meeting point for aliens and people loving people...and aliens:)More
