“Cheap decent place with strange bathrooms.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013 via mobile

this place was cheap and clean. Staff were very helpful and nice. the rooms were spacious and comfortable. Wifi was only available in hotel foyer. two rooms were connected via the same bathroom. It made me uncomfortable knowing if I forgot to lock the bathroom door someone could work into my room. I also didn't like that someone from the other room could walk in while i was on the toilet or in the shower. The 'bathroom rules' were that you have to knock before entering. It didn't feel like a safe arrangement. Besides that, it was a nice place for a short term stay.

Stayed for one night .. The service was quiet good.. The room was spacious but the shared bathroom with another room was a bit inconvenient.
As for the noise, our room was really quiet because we were on the 3rd floor.
A huge bonus is the free WiFi in the lobby .
For the relativly cheap booking the hostel exceeds expectaions and highly recommended :-)

Stayed for a couple of nights at this hostel. It is cheap and you get what you pay for.
Had a room at the 6th floor so it was extremely hot and it was full of mosquitoes.
The place is clean and they don't assume any responsibility if someone steals from your room.
I liked very much the location, which is central and on a rather small street, so I found it rather quiet.

Stayed at the hostel for 4 nights, during august, at the 6th floor. It was extremely hot and I had a hard time getting to sleep because of the mosquitoes. However, for a 2 star hotel it was rather clean and the personnel was nice. Note that they don't assume any responsibility if somebody steals from your room and you share the bathroom with another room, so make sure you lock the bathroom door.

Stayed at this hostel in July for 2 nights. It was very cheap so we didn't expect much. It was university halls used as a hostel in the summer, so just expect university style rooms and bathrooms.
There weren't any lockers so if you are traveling take a chain and lock, to tie to the cupboards to put valuables in.
I wouldn't say it was dirty, however I wouldn't say it was exactly clean. The location was good though, near the metro and you could walk to the bridges etc.
Overall worth the money.

A regular room, not quite big with a private bathroom and a fridge,We just wanted to stay one night to rest and this room was enough for that. Many people and many luggage always around the reception. The bathroom was not clean before our arrival. They accept the payment in euros.

We were a group of 3 travelling through budapest, we stayed one night.
We paid 28 euros for a triple room with a shared bathroom -- a very good price for a hostel located so close to the city centre.
We loved the fridge in the room, but it needed another hour of cleaning. We found some hair on the bedsheets, which means the bedsheets were not changed.
There was no toilet paper and the towels cost 5 euros to rent.
There is a fridge inside the room, which was great, but it needed a good wash.

The bathroom is incredibly small -- if you want to sit on the toilet properly, you cannot close the WC door. The bathroom was not really dirty, but did need a bit more cleaning.

There is one bathroom for every two rooms, so your neighbours can walk into the bathroom while you are using it.
You also have to remember to lock the door to the bathroom when you leave the room, otherwise the neighbours can get into your room -- not very safe for your luggage.

I would consider returning if they clean the rooms properly -- it has good prices for its central location!

Room Tip: Tip: make the online reservation prior to arriving there. The prices are much higher without a reser...
