A great small non-party hostel. Very relaxed atmosphere, clean and quiet. The guys who run this place are awesome, very nice and helpful people. Surprisingly inexpensive for the quality of the accommodations and you can pay in either Euro or Forint.
The rooms are quiet (even the street facing room I was in), the beds are comfortable, you are provided with a free towel, wifi, maps, simple breakfast in the morning and coffee/tea all day.
The location is right next to the river, a subway line and a tram line, so getting anywhere is simple. Walking distance to the main tourist nightlife area and "ruin bars" is about 10 minutes. Walking to Castle Hill from this hostel is also perfect because the hostel 2 minutes from the main market and you can continue along the river and across the Chain Bridge to get there. Additionally, a great place that brews about fifteen different varieties of their own beer, Élesztő, is just a short walk south-east.
There are two bathrooms, two showers, the hostel only holds about fifteen people so there was never an issue with this. There is an option for laundry, two computers for guest use and a balcony for smoking. They also have a large common area for hanging out, reading, or meeting other guests.
This is a very mellow and friendly place that became the basis for hostels I have been looking for in other cities since.More
