My brother and I arrived late one night with no plans for Budapest and happen to stumble upon this hostel. Best find so far on our Europe trip. The staff member was awesome giving us all kinds of advice for what to do and where to go out tonight. The hostel was a perfect mix of people who like to... More

Me and my friend were practically the only ones staying in the hostel around the 20th of may. There were 3 young people working there and they really made us feel at home, I even went... More

Big Fish hosts an impressive common area and hostel culture. It is a beautiful hostel with character in a great location in the city. I recommend heartily. Budapest itself is an amazing and too often overlooked city. Please visit it.

This is not the first hostel I've stayed at, but it is the first one I stayed in a dorm at (I'm relatively new to this travelling thing). It is easy to locate, close to public transport/main attractions (including the main Ruin Pub area), and super friendly and cozy. It's not very large, but there is a very nice/welcoming little...

They failed to mention online that they have *two* hostels in the summer. When the main one overbooked, they placed me in the second hostel which, while being only 5 minutes away from the first location, was in a much darker, scarier location. Some rooms didn't even have beds when I was there and one person sat in a chair... More

I travelled with my boyfriend and we met my old friend in The Big Fish Hostel. Well, we didn't stay much there because there was a lot to do with my friend but the stay was more than pleasant. Clean rooms, nice and helpful staff. Bathrooms weren't as gross as you could imagine since there's a lot of users. Thank... More
