When we first arrived at the hostel which the rooms are located in an old building, the woman who met us was really friendly and polite and she told us which places we should visit. Her advices were helpful although we organised everything from before. Our room was huge and clean. But the wifi connection was terrible.

I was very pleased with this hostel,it was clean, quiet, and centrally located. The host was very helpful and went out of his way to inform us of Budapest. I would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone going to Budapest.

Our living room/bedroom had table, chairs sofa and two sets... More

Done hostels in the past that were abysmal. This was the opposite. 16 guys on a stag, 8 in each half of an apartment in a massive building. Irish bar, shop, restaurant very near, 'Shabba" the concierge, top bloke. All in all, a fantastic few days in a great city on a great blokes stag. Well worth a booking if... More

First off, the location was amazing! Couldn't have asked for a better spot in Budapest. Secondly, you don't just get a room- you get a whole apartment. Definitely was not expecting that! I wish we were staying longer because it was so cozy, I wanted to make some cookies or something- it was that great :)

The rooms are very clean and we got one with a kitchen. Csaba, the owner will explain you everything about Budapest and he has also tickets for the bath and sightseeing bus. The hostel is located very centrally near metro and busstations. We will book again.

We arrived in Budapest at the airport and was brought to the hostel with great ease (excellent door to door service). We were then greeted by Csaba who was such a hospitable person. Even though the entrance to the building looked rather suspect, all fears of a poor experience were allayed after entering the room. The room was big enough... More

My sister and I had a three night stay. We had booked into the Happy Hostel, but my sister had not returned emails and so I do not think they were definitely sure we were arriving, so there was no room at the hostel but they had secured a small studio flat for us a few streets away. This was... More

We booked a taxi ride from the airport to this hostel and that was a great idea since we got a flat rate and the minute we arrived the staff greeted us, helped us carry bags and brought us to the room. The woman on staff was so friendly and gave us a map with some clubs, restaurants, main sights... More
