“Very Good Value for the Money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

A really nice Hostel, cheap, with all the facilities that you need to feel comfortable. The terrace was perfect to chill and the Kitchen was very well-equiped. The staff was always very helpful and the room was very comfortble. I've stayed more nights than the expected, and they could easily review my booking without any kind of problems.
I will defintely recommend it!!!!

Good location, trams run 24/7 and there are restaurants, bars and grocery stores near by. Kitchen and showers were clean (and they cleaned the place regularly) and kitchen was well equipped. The staff was helpful and gave us great recommendations about spas and bars and what to see in Budapest. We had some trouble doing our laundry since some of the machines didin't work (but they weren't sure which ones :/).
We stayed in a 8 bed dorm, it was spacious (we stayed 5 nights, which 3 we had the room to ourselves), the window was on the street but it wasn't too noisy. They had really good pillows and blankets :)

tli was with my friend for 3 days. The hostel is really big we stayed in the private room which was big but really hot no a/c nor the windows dont allow to the air flow. The staff are great very helpful And polite. You can ask them for any information plus they can book for you any trips. The location of the hostel is good but a bit far from the center but a 10 min walk to metro. There are 24 grocery shops and kebab restaurants.

Hostel is overall a good place to stay. I stayed here for five days, visiting lake Balaton and also Esztergom by train and bus respectively. For those who don't mind a 10 minute walk from the metro station or the tram station, this hostel is well connected. There are kitchens to use and computers with internet, and also wifi on every floor!

For me the main issue was these tiny flies hovering around. Maybe some net kind of materials should be placed on the windows so that windows can be opened without having to deal with these flies. There are also eateries nearby (~2 mins) with a pizza place selling big pizzas at just about 4 euros!

The hostel we stayed in had a nice friendly vibe about it, not in the party sense but in the comfortable sense. I think there should be more showers and toilets per floor for the amount of people, and also some other room mates kept leaving the door wide open and not locking it which was slightly concerning when we would leave our bags there all day. This isn't so much the hostels fault but maybe they should caution their guests or tell them to be more considerate of others. Overall the running of the hostel and location etc was great, would definitely return.
