Arranged transfer from the airport to the hostel through email. Everything was perfect and efficient, received an email stating phone numbers (who to call and what to do upon arrival). Texted the number and car type/plate number were given in exchange and we spotted out transfer right away. If you arrive earlier than the check in time, they will have...

Stayed for 5 nights with two friends. Clean with helpful staff, close to everything you might need. Nearest metro stop is around 10 minutes walk away, around 45 minutes - hour walk to the centre. No complaints from any of us!

Thank you very much for your feedback! We are happy to read that you enjoyed your stay in our Hostel and you liked the location either. There are parts of the city center you can reach in 45 minutes but there are way closer parts either for example the Central Market Hall is just 15 minutes. Hope to see you...

My boyfriend and I went to Budapest for a small weekend break and were looking for somewhere cheap to stay. This hostel was perfect in terms of location to the city as well as connections. We received excellent advice on where to go/ what to do. We had a private room which was £50 for 3 nights for 2 people...

Thank you very much for the nice review and the excellent rating! We are very happy to hear that you liked your stay in our hostel. Sorry for the cold, we do our best to warm up every little corner of the Hostel but it's not easy in a huge more than 100 year old building. Hope to see you...

It wasn't the best hostel I have been in. But the staff were friendly and to be honest when you are on a city break by the time you get back to your digs you are just ready for a cup of tea and head down. Quite a dark place and bed frame was made of pallets and squeeked like...
