Downtown Oasis was such an awesome place to stay. It is located in the center of Budapest downtown, 2 minutes walk from the main metro and within walking distance to several of the sights There are a lot of great restaurants, cafes and clubs/pubs nearby, so you don't have to go far for a good night out. There is a good kitchen to use in the hostel but food in Budapest is so cheap that I would recommend you try those nice cafes where you can sit outside and have your breakfast right across the Synagogue or under a shady tree in one of those all-pedestrian streets. Nice start to the day!
As the name suggests, it is not one of those party hostels where you meet heaps of people (and cannot sleep at night) so stay here if you are actually looking for a place with a relaxing atmosphere. For us, it was great to return to this quiet oasis after walking around the whole day going from sight to sight.
The rooms and common areas were nicely decorated and they were always kept clean. We never had to wait for the shared bathroom, which was a big plus. Our room was large and sunny with high ceilings and had huge glass doors to our own balcony from which you had great views to the beautiful tree-lined Avenue below (I loved the tram) a big square and the hills in the distance.
Judit, the owner was very friendly and helpful with recommendations (we arrived a little unprepared so it was a trip saver :) You should not leave Budapest without trying one of the public baths!!! We went to the biggest bath in the City Park during the daytime. This is where locals go and you see people playing chess while sitting in the water :) Awesome! We went to the old historic Turkish bath at night, it was open till 4 am, here the younger generation gathered for a relaxing chit-chat kind of night-out. Even better!
Downtown Oasis made our Budapest experience even better. Thanks for the lovely stay, we'll recommend your hostel to all our friends!
