“Lovely place, better than you would expect”
Reviewed 28 July 2011

Very nice hostel, quite close to the centre. They have very freindly staff that will help you with every problem/question about the place and about the city. Rooms are basic but clean and brite. comfy beds. I'd definitely recommend the place !

So, Red Star. Easy to find. Close to the centre, it takes 7 minutes by tram to get there. The rooms are simple, but nice. Clean bedsheet and bathroom.
Staff is extremely helpful and really friendly. They will always find you a way to spend free time. You can also spend time with them at the reception and have a great talk or play badminton outside the building :)
There's no typical common room, but they arranged really nice "common area" next to the reception (great coffee, really good WiFi connection, you can easily download stuff, eg. movies).
It's super cheap, so you can spend more in bars and cafes.

I miss this place somewhat. Hasta la vista Red Star ;)

We were there last year and we're going to come back ! Staff was very helpful and friendly. maybe hostel is not in the heart of the old city, but the price is really low! and we think that is better to keep more money for parties etc.:) to the city centre by tram is just few minutes or if prefer U can walk too .we was planned to stay just for a weekend, but we stayed longer...so we recommend RED STAR! :)

Place needs a good clean and a lick of paint. Showers and toilets not very clean but staff were very friendly and helpful. Good location it's only four stops on the tram to the old town

Hostelbookers.com (Hostelz.com) allowed my friend to book this hostel for our group friends, during January. But it's not even open during this time!!!

Most of the year it is University student accommodation.

For starters, it's in the middle of nowhere, in a dimly-lit industrial area. Just a petrol station close by who pointed us at the University building. We turned-up to a guy who didn't speak English saying "no hostel, no hostel". When we showed him our booking confirmation, he was more helpful but he still didn't admit we were in the right place. Instead he pointed us to a Hotel close-by which was full anyway.

By this time, all other Hostels were full. So we booked double-rooms at the Park Inn Danube Hotel, for £79 per room.
