I read a review of Dave G and a review of a review, which left so called management of this hotel and I need to add something, so people who maybe read that don't have wrong impression about this hostel.
I put rates for all optional information that Tripadvisor offers, and they are not so bad.. What is really bad is the overall rating of this place. The taste in our mouth after leaving this place and Budapest at all..
First, me and Dave G are the one of "footballers from Serbia" which stayed in hostel in mentioned period. Well, first of all, we are not footballers.. We participate to Regional meeting of Arsenal supporters club, which held in Budapest and which organized Supporters club from Hungary. Yes, we got robbed after the football tournament which is organized as side happening of this gathering, and in that robbery (which is btw, reported to Budapest's police - who said, that we should say good bye to our belongings) we lost around 2500 euros.
After this happened we came to "lovely" management of hostel with an appeal to let us leave our rooms that same afternoon even we booked it for that (second) night also, since we got robbed and we don't have any more need (or money) to stay in Budapest.. After a while, that same management told us that he WILL let us not pay for one (of three) cheapest room, which was fine by us, even that we asked to not pay for whole night.. But ok, it was fair enough.. And to mention.. Even then, we didn't have enough money to pay the rent of remained accommodation (15% we paid in advance using credit card), but yes, we thought we'll pay it using card again. Since we thought it's legitimate way to pay it.. Yes?
Well, twist of fate, on our check out, no one from that so called management isn't at the reception desk, and some other guy said that their landlord changed his mind and he doesn't have any reason to let us not pay for even that one room that he said that he will.. How nice of him. Since we are not any troublemakers like we are presented there, we told the guy that he can charge our credit card (something he didn't hesitate to do immediately) and we left the facility.. What's wrong with that??? Since he wasn't there, he also can not say that we told that we wont pay, which btw never happened. So, awful, awful lie!
Later, in correspondence with this "lovely" hostel crew I told them that anything that they done wasn't fair and that they lied to us (when they said about discount) and that they deserve to have bad review after all of this. Since we didn't have understanding about our awful situation (4 cell phones and 1 camera missing, 1000 euros missing and car damaged - without of hope to be found ever, thanks to Hungarian cops), we didn't want to have any understanding for them.. And we all know that bad review is much worse that 60 euros that hostel's boss changed his mind to charge..
Well, I left my review on Hostelworld site (which we use to book this hostel), and it was immediately removed, since it's bad for the hostel!? Well what's the point of review than? So BAD REVIEW for Hoslteworld itself - last time I used their site to book something.
I hope that this review will stay here, no matter what people from Corvin say about this (I believe that they wont say anything, cause it all would be just avoiding of truth - I don't wont to use right words for that), so people who are in trouble shouldn't expect to find help or understanding there.
