When we looking for a hotel we decide it for location. Location is good but not enough. Absulatelly not enough! Honestly while i was coming in i was afraid of the view. Terrible view. And the room was looking same view. Bad smells was coming from the bathroom. After we showed all we found another hostel.

Pros: location and small rooms - you don't need to share them and the price is OK. Cons: the locks are worn and hard to close. The staff are unhelpful - they do not answer your mails or questions (but expect you to give your EXACT arrival time!!), and they made us wait one hour in extreme heat. After my...

Great Location. The building, particularly the inside is very dilapidated, in places dirty. Reception is essentially a dinning room table with a laptop and an ash tray. If you want to feel like your back at uni sleeping round your mates after a monster party, with smoke everywhere, then this is probably the place for you. I'm pretty sure the...

The hostel it's located in an old building (on the outside it looks good, but on the inside it's like a disaster) but it's pretty central. When we arrived, the sheets on the beds were dirty and we had to ask the staff to change them. They start a discusion but in the end they put other sheets, cleaner. Otherwise,...

The location is great in the middle of the city, The place is cosy and clean, but a little worn and old. There is noise from the street, as it is when you stay in the middle of the city. We loved to stay there because of the very friendly and helpful staff and the location. I would truly recommend...

This hostel has the most friendly and helpful staff we've met so far en eastern Europe. The location is great and the main door is situated towards the main street, but it's still a little bit hard to find because the sign is a little A4 piece of paper attached at the gate. The place is cosy and clean, but...

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
