Arrived at the hostel expecting to be placed in a dorm room within the hostel. However, we were taken to an apartment down the road (so away from the main hostel). Apartment was lovely, clean and homely. Shared with 6 other girls. Had a proper kitchen and bathroom all clean. The beds were comfortable, air con but room were still...

Unlike the typical hostel with many rooms and huge common areas where guests can meet and hang out together, this is a two bedroom apartment. (I stayed in the female only one.) The apartment is spacious, kitchen is nice and clean, bathroom with bathtub facility (which you can't really utilise because the hot water will become cold when you try...

The atmosphere is GREAT, very relaxing. Staff is so nice and helpful. The rooms and the hostel is overall clean! So much more than you could ask for in a hostel! Best location aswell. Close to bars, walking distance to all of the attractions. Will definitely come back to Budapest and this hostel! Such a nice city!!

On the internet, the hostel looked cozy and hip and that's why I booked a bed for a couple of nights. In reality, it was a bit of a disappointment. The place is a private apartment, somewhat re-arranged into a hostel. The staff did clean the hostel, without the help of a cleaning lady. Yet the rooms weren't really clean....

We booked a double room at the hostel but were told over-booked when we arrived. However the staff allocated us a very nice, close apartment and sent us there by taxi. It was in central location and everything is just so perfect!

We arrived around quarter past 7 (the time we stated when booking) and there wasn't anymore on reception to let us into the building, another guest had to let us in (which is slightly worrying regarding security) when the member of staff did arrive he apologised in which I can only regard as sarcastic, he quickly showed us points on...

The hostel is very clean and modern. Lovely spacious sunlit room and well equipped kitchen, bathroom. Nice and friendly staff willing to help. The hostel is well situated and you can walk everywhere or take public transport nearby, should you get tired or lazy. Only one tiny negative point was the noisy trams (if your window opens on the boulevard.)...

We had a really lovely stay at Friends Hostel. The staff was really kind and made us feel welcome! The room (Female dorm room) was very spacious and clean. The greatest thing is that it's like an apartment and it has a wonderful kitchen, 2 bathrooms. Places to sit and chill and hang your washing. Lovely little balcony out to...

This hostel was placed in a great location on the Pest side. Free towels were provided. The staff have helpful tips. We had our own shelf on the fridge. It was a very clean and relaxing stay! It was close to the night life, the opera, parliament and many more.

“The room you have is likely dependent on how many are in your party. The facilities were clean, the location is fabulous, that bathrooms, common area and kitchen are shared, but more than adequate... and they offer rental bikes on property, which is a very nice feature as Budapest is bicycle friendly... but the most important asset of this facility if the FRIENDLY HELPFUL STAFF!!”
