“Fantastic apartment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

A group of 9 of us stayed here during our stay in Budapest. The apartment is made up of 2 rooms of four single beds each and one room with a double bed. Sleeping 10 altogether. One of the rooms of four has its own private bathroom with a bath/shower. All the bedrooms lock and the apartment rooms are rented out seperatey. Therefore the kitchen, hall, living room and other bath/showere room are all communal. The chances are I would not stay in this manner, however we had the whole place to ourselves which was perfect for us and at £35 each for the 3 nights, it was pretty amazing and pretty appropriate for our purpose. (The apartment is tiled throughout and a little echoey. So you would have to cosider this. Although 2 of us were up around 5-6 am, and we managed not to wake the others).
It is on floor 4 which is 5 fllights of stairs, though there is a lift. The apartment is a little outdated with respects to the furniture, kitchen and bathroom, but is is spotlessly clean and well stocked with free tea and coffee and very comfortable. There was always hot water and heating throughout our stay.
There is free wifi and computer access. There are lots of leaflets and discounts for near by eateries/bars.
Neomi and Nori were very helpful during our stay with loads of information/advice.
You are right next to shops, bar and eateries. Vaci street 5-10 minute walk away.
A lot of people comment on the amount of keys, but there is a keypad door entry on the outside. The second door was locked ealy one morning (6.30am), but usually always unlocked. So the only keys we had was to get to the terrace and then into the apartment. However we were very happy as it made it very secure. And we requested a few sets incase we went about seperately.
Spar is next door, ATM at the bank across the road, but the change bureaus give the best rates and they are every where near shops ect.
I Would highly recommend these apartments.

I was travelling in Europe with some friends and we got to Budapest at the end of our first month. We were really tired... when we got to the hostel we were so happy because it was perfect. It was in a great location, just next to all the sights of the city, we were almost alone there, because it has three bedrooms and one kitchen, it was like having an appartment for us, and we could relax and get some rest. The staff is very very kind, they helped us with directions and gave us the tips of what to do in Budapest... The best thing was that I left my camera charger and battery in the hostel, and Noemi (the owner) sent it to me to my house, she was really nice. I would definetly recomend it and I hope to get back there soon

This apartment is beautiful, centrally located and has an awesome view of the Great Synagogue. The location is so close to the Jewish quarter which is a great area full of bars and restaurants. The staff of the hostel gave really great suggestions during our time in Budapest. The beds were very comfortable and the hostel was very clean and made for a great stay.

based on the reviews from both tripadvisor and hostel bookers we stayed at the Downtown Oasis mid october and we were not disapointed !

Beautiful appartment, located on the 4 floor that has been converted into a hostel like place. only 3 rooms, 1 double and 2 3/4 people rooms. Lovely high ceilings and large rooms and located near the jewish district and walking distance from all the main sites. We didnt use public transit once ! There is a grocery store on ground floor (it has a large wine selection !) All rooms were occupied during our stay but it was calm and peaceful.

I want to say a big thank you to Noemie and Andrew for making us feel at home. They provided excellent customer service during the booking and upon arrival. Even helped us book the spa/massage for us !

Would totally recommend it and go again

Nice and quiet, great facilities and very close to all the main attractions. Staff were very helpful. There are lots of really good restaurants nearby in the Jewish quarter. Be sure to tell them your check in time before you arrive.

The hostel reception isn't 24 7, so we had to tell when we would arrive. But our train delayed 2 hours, and we end up arriving at 1 a.m. but as soon we contacted the reception, she stayed there waiting for us the whole time. The room was perfect tidy and clean, very confortable. We had acess to everything we needed and the location was very very good. So close to start point of Free Walking Tours. Next to the hostel, we had a supermarket for our convenience. I recommend for sure.

NEW! The hostel is going to open three more BRAND NEW rooms as part of Downtown Oasis Hostel / Apartment. The new property is called Downtown Oasis Ensuites. The rooms, which are equipped with a nice kitchen and a common area, can be found on Level 3 inside the same building. The new property consists of three ensuite rooms, a brand new kitchen and a common area. The most charming hostel in town with an incredible location!

We've turned a beautifully renovated classic Budapest apartment into a small hostel so that you, the budget traveler, can enjoy quality accommodation at bargain price, and get a glimpse of Budapest as only locals know it.Please NOTE that the hostel is small with a few private rooms and therefore it's NOT a place where you can meet lots of people and party. However, if you prefer privacy, personal attention, cleanliness and a relaxed atmosphere with a homely touch this place is idyllic for you! To top it all, the hostel is located within walking distance of most of the sights and is surrounded by amazing old buildings, so staying here you can not only see Budapest's history, you can live in it for a while.We are less than five minutes walk away from the famous Vaci street, a fashionable all pedestrian shopping area, and the nightlife and entertainment quarter, packed with trendy pubs, clubs, cafes, fancy restaurants as well as cheap eateries. Only three minutes walk away from the blue, yellow and red metro line stops, night buses, and trams to the Buda side, we provide an ideal base for exploring Budapest's rich past as well as its vibrant multicultural present.Our friendly staff will be happy to assist you with anything you need. We recommend the best places to go out and we can help you to plan the most efficient ways to do your sightseeing.Please note: we don't have a 24 hour reception, which means that we're not in the hostel all day round, so please NOTIFY us about your arrival time.Check-in: 1pm-12 midnight.Check out from rooms: until 11am. ... more   less
