“Just like home”
Reviewed 3 February 2012

This is definitly the best hostel I have ever stayed in. We were in the new annex wich was accross the road from the reception and it was spacious, clean and modern. Quite cheap on top of that !
The people were really nice and had good advice on where to go !
Definitly worth stopping by !

We only stayed for one night, but in that short time we felt like at home.. Warm welcome at the reception.. Nice bathrooms.. Spacious rooms.. And a cool kitchen connected with the common room that is fully stocked with movies and games. We were offered a free cup of delicious tee at our arrival whitch felt just right for the freezing November earning. Thank you for everything :)

I spend 5 very nice nights in this place.
Location is good, not to far from any major attractions in Budapest. Also, very good connections with tram or metro to any desirable part of the city.
Staff is cool, very well informed about the city and happenings in it. Organization is great and if you don't know what to do, they will make a great plan for you.
Rooms (mine was 8 bed dorm) are spacious, big lockers inside (if you don't have your own lock they will provide you one), very clean inside, also I got clean sheets and the towel for free.
If you are for cooking, Big Fish kitchen is a right place for you. Extremely good equipped and salt, paper, oil (olive and sunflower) and various spices are there for free.
And most probably, you will have one night pleasure to eat food that they will prepare for you! Beata cooks magical meals! ;)
Bon appetite! :)
In all, great place to be in Budapest, choose Big Fish, you will love your Budapest holiday with Big Fish!

I have been to quite a few hostels but this place puts hostels on another level - it is amazingly spacious & clean, there are so many funky artistic touches to it, the common room & kitchen are really cozy, the staff will go out of their way to recommend the best places & adventures to experience in Budapest (like caving under the city which is so thrilling & crazy & a must!), they know the coolest bars/clubs in town, they made us a Hungarian dinner which was delicious.. what more can I say?! If you're staying in Budapest don't miss this place!!

I stayed here while travelling around europe and it was one of the best hostels I stayed in. It's small so there is a cosy feel. Everyone hung out together at night. The rooms were big, so it was fine to have 10 people in them, and there were safes for everyone too. The kitchen was ideal for cooking and socalising and there was even a common area with a tv. The only problem was the bathrooms, which there were only a few of. The shower wasn't especially nice.
I would definitely stay here again.
