“Different!”
Reviewed 25 August 2012

If you're used to five star hotels and moet on tap then you'll be disappointed with this place. Lower your expectations and you'll find it's actually not bad! Anton the owner is the friendliest man in the world, will help you out however he can. The hostel itself is an interesting place, not the most modern, in fact I don't think the toilet/showers have been done out for at least twenty years, but like I say there's nothing wrong with them. I had the squeakiest bed I've ever slept in but it was CLEAN and COMFY. The location is also great, not too far away from the city centre and Hero's square in the other direction. Felt very secure, we had the key to the entrance and our own room, and you have to know the code to get into the building at all (so don't lose the bit of paper it's on!!). Nice spacious TV and computer area. Would stay again!

We spent a couple nights at HBC Hostel and really loved it! It is centrally located with lots in the area, was secure and extremely good value. However, the host, Anton, was the best part about it! He was so welcoming, gave us great info and even a home cooked meal! He absolutely made our experience in Budapest!!

I loved the hostal, Anton, the owner is a great man and he makes you have a nice time in Budapest, the hostal has a good location near to some main places in budapest. And is a nice old building, you can feel comfortable and secure in the hostal.
Totally recommend it!
