The hostel seems to be converted from a large apartment. You have to ring a buzzer to get in, as though buzzing into someone's flat. I was immediately in love with the place before we even made it in, as there is a beautiful winding staircase leading you up to the Hostel. My boyfriend and I shared a private room... More

This is the kind of hostel you imagine before you start travelling before you get the harsh reality. I was sick and it was raining most of the time, but I loved Budapest and I especially loved the goat. I was so worried when I showed up and walked up the omnous spiral staircase, but what I found was a... More

After two weeks of traveling from Switzerland to Budapest, this place felt like home. It's clean, uncrowded, and has a homey, relaxed atmosphere that can't be beat. Steve is the funniest and most-helpful staff person I've ever met, and he and Gabriel always had great recommendations on places to go and things to do while we were in the City.... More

What a find, a great friendly, well priced hostel in central Budapest. Very close to resturants and town. The staff were fantastic (with café lattes thrown in for free). The building is old but cared, the room was clean and tidy (bathrooms too, didn't see the dorm rooms so I can't comment there). There's a kitchen corner and a lounge.

“I stayed in the street side, north-facing six bed dorm at the end of the hall with the showers/bathrooms. It is a main road, but on a quiet stretch, so there isn't much street noise aside from cars.”
