We stayed here for a weekend trip to wander around Budapest. The location and price are the most ideal. It's a small hostel but it's clean and comfortable in an elegant old building with one of those neat vintage cage elevators. There are 3 or 4 multiple person rooms and 2 bathrooms which wasn't a problem. I would recommend bringing...

Nice, trendy hostel In a great location. Rooms were spacious and kitchen and common area were fit for purpose. Met nice people and the staff seemed helpful and friendly enough when I saw them. Would return.

The hostel is very well located, in one of the main avenues and next to one of the busiest squares in Pest, where lots of young people chill out in summer evenings. You can easily walk to the main attractions in Budapest. The rooms and social areas are very clean and cozy. There are lockers in the room and the...

The hostel is great, has really big spaces in common area and rooms. Is has plenty of natural light which is lovely. They have many bathrooms and you can use the huge kitchen they have. The location couldnt be better, is close to every place you should visit! =) What they should improve is: The beds make lot of noise!...

Fits the bill! Nice staff and very quiet. Beds were comfortable and the water was always warm which is the main thing! Lockers provided. Great location!!! Cheap and cheerful! It was slightly had to find at first and as the other reviews mention, it doesn't look like a hostel at first but we soon figured it out!

Stayed there a night during Sziget time. The hostel was clean and the staff was friendly. I had a room with a view of Budapest eye. I would go there again without any hesitation. Nice deal for its price.

We stayed here for a night with my friend and both of us loved this place. We stayed in a 4-bed, mixed dorm. Great hostel for a cheap price. The staff was very nice and helpful. The bathrooms were clean so as the kitchen, receiving area and bedrooms. You can also bring and cook food in their kitchen. A walking...

Excellent location. I really liked the laid back atmosphere in this hostel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a free laptop for guest to use. The bathrooms were very clean. Definitely I will stay here again if I visit Budapest in the future. * My student agency bus arrived at Budapest two hours ahead of the schedule,...

This is the cheapest hostel I found in Budapest and it's really an excellent price for what we got. Don't be intimidated by the old building, because once you're inside it's awesome. Very clean, nicely decorated and well equipped common room (including kitchen). I love the whale drawings all over the place! The owner is an artist and she loves...

“If you want to come as a group, make a reservation at least a week in advance (if not longer) - it's really tiny and fills up easily. The 6 bed dorm is really airy and spacy so it's ok to stay there as well.”
