We were specially influenced by the low price of the rooms and the positive reviews and pictures on trip advisor... However, when we got to the Hostel, we were very surprised. The reception was on a different floor to the rooms, so when I needed a hair dryer I would have to run down outside to get it from reception....

The staff were really helpful, from needing to book a taxi to recommending somewhere nice to eat on the budget of a pack packer! We ended up with our own apartment which...

It is very conveniently located across the Train Station and easily accessible by all modes of conveyance. Although located in an old building, it has a lovely lift making it convenient to drag luggage. Its is a great place to stay,...

The hostel is definitely in a good location, but it's not as it appears in the pictures. We had to book because we had an emergency and had to find a quick and cheap solution to stay a night more in Budapest. The staff is really friendly, there's free wifi and a shared living room with sofas. However the room...

It was ok. The price was good and it wasn't too far away from the main square. There is a subway station right next to the entrance to the building. Also, FREE PARKING ON THE WEEKENDS everywhere in the city :) The rooms aren't super clean, but you get what you pay for. A really important thing for me, since...

I stayed at the Nightingale Hostel for a couple of nights. The Reception lady was quite nice and tried to be helpful. The room was basically clean although I found some chewing gum on the window shelf and everything (incl. the linen and towels) was really old, shabby and not kept after. I could barely open my window because the...

I have stayed in the same hostel already twice. Very conveniently located. Clean, very basic. But the price for private room with bathroom does not have a competition in Budapest. So definetely will stay there again if I need a 1-2 nights overstay.
