Unclean, just look at the pictures I uploaded. You'll see that the hostel is definitely one of the worst ever seen. There's dirt everywhere and the most disappointing thing is the mismatch between the picture they post and reality!

We stayed as a group of 15 students at the hostel. The location is abolutely perfect, close to metro, restaurants and major sights. The hostel consists of several rooms/apartments, all on the first floor. They are suitable for younger people, so don't judge them by standards you would apply to a hotel. Breakfast was fine, they let you choose from...

The hostel is in a perfect location, close to a metro station and only a fiew walking minutes away from the center of Pest. The hostel consists of three seperate apartments in a regular apartment building which makes it a little hard to find. The apartments are charming but the furniture is pretty run down. Due to a lot of...

Good hostel in a great location. We've stayed only 1 night, slept well. The room we stayed [next to the reception] was big enough [7 ppl], had a private toilet and a shower. Hostel is located in the house [separate floor] and feels very safe. Very friendly staff, not sure what level of English they've spoken as we had a...

Firstly the hostel does not look much like the photos - it's quite dark and dingy and rather run-down. The location is very good and the hostel has good security but it is quite hard to find. Stayed for one night in a shared dormitory room - the bunk beds were made of creaky metal and didn't feel too safe,...

We arrived at the hostel and nobody was there. Waited at the door and luckily somebody turned up in 5 mins. The guy was very helpful, we paid for the breakfast which the hostel arranged in a cafe near by, however I would recommend you pay directly at the cafe, it is cheaper. (they also offer tickets to the river...

This hostel is really nice actually. Rooms are located in apartment (on different floor). So it feel like home. I was travelling alone, staying with other people in the room next to the reception. It was quiet, practical and the room was spacious. I slept super well! Thanks to all the staff who was super nice with me! They are...

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
