Staff very welcoming - helped us find closest food shops and cheap cafes. Double room was nice, but right next to kitchen thus noisy. Free towels and hairdryer supplied. Very homey, cosy feeling to hostel. Well-stocked kitchen, with all amenities. €7 for wash and dry clothing. Can buy tickets to Baths at hostel, to dodge the queues. Hungarian cooking class every 2nd Tues of month. Bar and city tours. Very good hostel for meeting people; not a good hostel if you want an early night.

The hostel felt like I was crashing at a friend's house in Budapest. First the good things - excellent staff. Easily the friendliest hostel I have been to, with staff that really went out of their way to give helpful recommendations and even just to chat.

But there was no mistaking that you were staying in a converted apartment. There really weren't enough bathrooms for the number of people staying at the hostel, especially in the morning when people were showering. Equally, the private room is beside the kitchen and not very sound-proof.

We only stayed here one night. The staff on the desk were very welcoming and friendly. Our room(apartment really) was a few steps from the main hostel. It was stunning. I would happily live there, the antiquated furniture and mezzanine floor were so full of character. A twenty minute walk from the train station and a short walk to most other points of interest.. Why stay anywhere else?

The hostel is one of the main avenues of the city and has a very relaxed atmosphere. It's small but I enjoy it just because of this: allow you a good night of sleep. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The toilets were always clean and the rooms have a lot of space! I felt like home.

Room Tip: 6 beds room is the best.

We stayed in the double room private (shared bathroom) The room was charming and very cosy with REAL PILLOWS (which seems to be a luxury in hostels). The kitchen was well equipped and clean. Staff were cleaning all the time and were so friendly. Each staff member was knowledgable and very approachable. There is a wide range of literature on what to do in Budapest such as tours, maps, bars, food etc. Security was good. The location was spot on. The photos on the internet do not do this place justice. The standard of cleanliness and information is close to what you could expect from a large chain but with the added extra of personality and the feeling that the staff actually remember who you are when you walk throught the door. Dorms also looked very nice and comfy. If you go to Budapest, DEFINATELY STAY HERE. Its awesome.

Room Tip: double room private shared bathroom - very cute, clean. plug sockets. comfy pillows and bed. Next to...
