Unfriendly stuff, dirty and smelly shower rooms, you have take a freaking flight of stairs to reach the hostel and the lift wasn't working. It has very bad wifi coverage,you can't get wifi in the room you and it only covers at lobby area. I really do not recommend you to stay here eventhough the location is quite good but...

...the facilities and experience with other travellers fell short by miles. It is true that the hostel is cheap especially that we arrived in the heat of summer season with Sziget festival just starting. We paid approx. 9 euro per night per person and we stayed for 10 days. The hostel is located near Metro 3 stop Nyugati which is...

We stayed in this hostel for a very good price (about €11 per person per night, I believe) and it was thoroughly acceptable, with a friendly atmosphere. My only two complaints are that one has to mount about eight flights of stairs to reach the hostel from the street and that the showers were somewhat scatty..

For a hostel, and I've stayed at a few, this one was clean, convenient, and secure. What more could you want! All the dorms have lockers, so you don't have to worry about people stealing from you, just remember to bring your own padlock. Walking distance to the Nyugati train station.

I absolutely loved this hostel. I stayed here for over 2 weeks and it was amazing, I have never seen such care taken at a hostel! The sheets and duvet covers were even ironed. The walls and doors were spot less and it smelt amazing! The staff were beyond helpful and kind. There were so many guides and little cards...

This hostel offers cheap accomodation in a very good location in Budapest. It's located by a busy street but the windows are new and can isolate the noise very well so that it doesn't bother you at all. There are plenty of bars and pubs in the area. It's also just a 2-minute walk from a 24 hour shop. It...

We stayed here just 1 night as inter-railers. The facilities are great (kitchen, showers, lockers, WiFi etc). It acted as a good base from which to explore Pest, and the main bridges across to Pest are 10-15mins walk away. It is near lots of bars, restaurants, shops, metro and tram stations. The staff were wonderful, very welcome and had lots...

“All the rooms were great! If you want privacy its available as well. I went in the not so busy time so in my 12 bed dorm I had some of the best sleeps this whole 4 month trip.”
