It's a good hostel, quality for money! Didn't like the location! It's not in the center as mentioned. You have to pay for everything else( Locker, Towels, soap, everything) Nothing is provided within your package. Reception was so helpful, good English which facilitated communication, provided maps, internet and they replied all questions. In my opinion, its a good place for... More

I was there with 7 friends more for a night. We use two rooms for 4 people, very clean and with their own toilet and bath (but without soup). It's not situated in the centre and that makes you take the metro or tram always. All it's very clean and renovated but there's not a friendly ambience. The men in... More

We had such a nice stay here. The shared dorms are quite small but we only used them to sleep so no issue as downstairs in the reception there is a large communal area. The only problem is there is no real self catering facilities apart from a microwave and hot water and you need to ask for any plates,... More

I went 4 nights with my friend and I was disappointed about the atmosphere of the hostel. It's more an hotel than an hostel: for example, there is no kitchen (impossible to cook or even eat something in the hostel at night). You have to pay for everything (locker, towel, soap...) The staff is ok but not helpfull and not... More

My boyfriend and I had a few problems with this hostel. Firstly there was only about 10-15 people staying there at the same time as us. It is a big hostel therefore there was no atmosphere. We could clearly see where they had placed everyone in dorms due to the deposits left in the pigeon holes. They had put everyone... More

Stayed with a friend in a shared room with private bathroom. It's easy to reach hostel by metro (5-7 min of walk, then 10 min. drive to Stefansdom) or tram. There are a couple of shops not far, but no good places to go out - so be ready to drive to the center. It's possible to park nearby the... More

I stayed for two nights in this hostel, the common area is nice and provides free wireless Internet, which is a plus in this area. Since I was travelling by car, staying really close to town is not always an option, since most hotels dont have parking spaces, and parking on the street is free only after 18h. This hostel... More

This hostel was good although the location proved slightly troublesome as the metro was broken which made it a bit harder to get into the city center. Thankfully all the trams worked so wasn't too much of a problem. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was good too. The common room was a good place to go and we... More

At first it's a little bit hard to find the Hostel, but after, you can see that is quite easy to get on the tram line. It's approximately 15min on the tram line until the city center. A nice lounge/living room, beds were OK. I paid around 18€/night + Amazing breakfast (Included) + Safe luggage room - The room lockers... More
