Origo Hostel & Guesthouse
Ranked #186 of 670 Speciality Lodging in Budapest
Reviewed 23 October 2008

A second floor flat in an apartment building which has been converted into a small hostel. The front door opens off a walkway around the building's central courtyard (a feature of many Budapest buildings) and leads into a central communal kitchen, off which open four bedrooms (a twin, two doubles and a triple), a bathroom/toilet (with a shower in the bath) and a shower room/toilet.

Good: Can't be beaten on location - Central Budapest, 2 minutes walk from Parliament, Kossuth tér metro station and the No.2 tram; fantastic value for money; generally clean and hygienic; clean bed linen and towels are provided; the cooker, fridge and washing machine are all in good condition and appear to work well; the only staff member we encountered was very friendly and spoke excellent English (she was waiting for us on our arrival - we never saw any member of staff again for the whole week we were there!); the beds are comfortable and there is plenty of storage space; good lighting and plenty of electric sockets in the room; there is no noise from outside - the rest of the building is residential and quiet and no traffic noise penetrates from the street (which is a pretty quiet one anyway, although there is a bar in the building next door); there is a small but good supermarket about 2 minutes walk away (open 7am-7pm most days, 7am-1pm on Sundays).

Bad: Can be difficult to find on arrival (the street door is unmarked with only a small label on one of the bellpushes next to it and there are no signs within the building except a small sign on the door of the hostel itself); the lock of the hostel door is dodgy and can take ages to open (we had a nasty moment the first time we arrived back late at night, before we realised that it did unlock with a bit of coaxing); a family of cockroaches appears to live under the washing machine, and also makes occasional forays into the bathroom; the shower room door has no lock and the toilet seat is parting company with the toilet (the bathroom is much better, but the shower in the bath isn't mounted on the wall and therefore needs to be handheld to use); the window of our room opened onto the walkway and we therefore couldn't really leave it open; the walls are quite thin and you can be disturbed by other guests (although nobody there when we were was particularly noisy).
