“really friendly staff, great stay!”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

From the moment we arrived the staff were very friendly, i visted with my sister and brother, the stay was great and the staff recommended some local places for us to go at night which were great! The hostel is in a great location, as it is very near to both a tram stop and a metrolink, the hostel was very clean and the kitchen facilities available for use were fab! Id book again without hesitation.

I've been traveling all over Europe and this is one of the best places I've stayed. It seriously felt like home, I could have stayed there for a few more days and just hung out with the cool staff and guests and enjoyed the amazing Budapest culture. But seriously, this place is great

This hostel has a really homely feel about it. It has a TV with a huge selection of DVDs to pick from which was great to chill out with a few of the other travellers. It is in a very good location and the staff are very friendly. Only downside was pressure from the pub crawl organisers who hang out in the common room for too long trying to sign people up- this was quite frustrating.

Besides being very well located, the hostel is extremely cozy! They even have a playstation 3! The staff was very friendly (specially the girl at the reception)! The rooms are big, you can control the intensity of the light, the beds are good and the bathrooms are very clean! Really easy to spend time inside the hostel!

We booked four beds in an 8-bed room, with a shared bath, and it was an overall positive and pleasant experience. Everything was very clean and the other people there were very nice and exceptionally social. The hostel itself is quite small, which is nice. The possibility to borrow a lock and a towel at no charge was very convenient. The staff really recommend only one restaurant but are super friendly and willing to help. The only thing that was annoying was that shoes had to be taken off at the door upon arrival, but it keeps the place clean.

This hostel is great! It was very clean, the price was right, and the bathroom, kitchen and lounge room were big and clean and felt like the one you might have at home. The hostel is well located too, with a metro station close by and the tram stopping right out the front. I recommend going on the pub tour :)
