The hostel is like 1 minute away of the train station. Parking your car is possible at shopping centre Aqua Park and that's for free. The city centre is 15 minutes walking. Of course you can also take the public transport. The owner of the hostel is very friendly and can tell you a lot about Budapest. The hostel itself... More

The owner of hostel is very nice! I had only one night at the hostel but he told me very kindly and let me know many sightseeings and gourmet restaurants. I just followed his recommended routes and it was perfect! Moreover, my train time was 11p.m but he allowed me to stay hostel until the departure. The hostel was just... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend, we booked a private room for 2 people. The place is a bit difficult to find so you have to make sure you read the instructions on how to get there. When we arrived, we found out that the room was actually a little apartment just down the street from the actual hostel. It... More

我在那边住了两个晚上,住宿离匈牙利火车站很近,很方便,附近又有一间很好吃的匈牙利餐厅(你可询问那边的staff)hostel的入口处就只是很普通,但是进了门,是会让人惊讶的。很有本土味道的hostel,很清洁,员工也都很好,非常舒服,又有wifi,真的值得推荐给大家! What a amazing hostel, I still miss the moment when I was in Budapest . The hostel is really nice , and special!! The staff is friendly , room is comfortable , clean and marvelous! I like it to much, people who are looking for cheap and nice hostel , that is your firstly choice.

As I was arriving at and leaving Budapest from Keleti train station, this hostel was clearly one of my first picks. The neighbourhood isn't quite fancy, but you are 10 minutes away (3 metró stops) from Deák Ferenc tér, so this is in fact very central. The building looks a bit run down but once you get inside you have... More

My fiancée and I wanted a private studio, so we booked through Locomotive for 3 nights. They had arranged for a taxi to pick us up and 40 minutes later we had arrived. The building is very art deco, black and silver, very cool. The apartment is adorable and looked like a 'grandma's' house with a fabulously large bathroom and... More

I stayed with my boyfriend in a twin bedroom on the far right of the corridor. Unfortunately, the poor quality of sleep owershadowed the other nice qualities of that hostel. It was that old-fashioned spring mattress, where you you can feel the metal structure under your ribs. I was told later, that there are different types of mattresses in other... More
