It's in the Pest part of Budapest, which is the most animated. Public transportation are pretty close. I'm surprised by the bad comments on cleanness cause for me it was ok.
Staff was helpful and nice. We booked a 4 bed private room for 3 nights, and for the last night we were only 2 left. They let us use the same room without paying for the empty beds.
There is also a left luggage is you still have time to wander around before your flight.

Room Tip: We had a private 4 bedroom on the first floor.

I were there with group of friends. Localization is fine - close to tram, on foot around 20 minutes to city center, rooms OK – big, nice, beds with fresh bed linen. Hole building works with “chip” keys - so you don't need to worry about your safety or your staff. One big minus - bathrooms are terrible! Very very ugly, quite old and very dirty. If you go there only to sleep it's OK - but remember that it's not a hotel so don't aspect to have luxury :)

Initially, me and my girlfriend had booked a six bed dorm in this hostel. At about 02:00 in the first night, one of our roommates got aggressive against me and my girlfriend, and scared we hurried out of the room to the reception. The awesome service there gave us a two person private bedroom for the other night, because there were no more free dorms! We also tremendously enjoyed the city, and it is definitely a must for any trip to Eastern Europe!

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!!!!
