Very basic accommodation located a 2 min walk from the centre of Budapest. Right by the metro station though I found it quite difficult to find as it is not very well signposted & the directions on the site are confusing. The winning part if this hostel is definitely the staff. The staff members that I encountered were absolutely lovely & always willing to help. I stayed in a 10 bed dorm which was quite roomy, though only has a few power points with very squeaky beds. Bedding was provided though which is ideal. The bathrooms however were not very well kept, with some of the toilets not having any toilet paper and the two showers in my room were clogged with hair for the 2 nights I was there. The hostel also has no security whatsoever, none of the rooms have locks, with some guests walking into other rooms at there own will. I found this to be a bit unsettling, though you can purchase a locker for €5. The common areas were kept clean and wifi was available here. Noise carried very easily through the entire hostel also, with some guests talking in the common areas until well into the night.
For only £5 a night it does the job for those travelling on a budget but I would probably not stay here again.
