Big fish is a really small hostel and that's why it's so good. Me and my friends met everyone in the hostel. Cause kitchen and common area are all the same. And for me meeting people is what matters the most.

Best hostel experience I've had. Loveliest and friendliest staff who hang out in the lounge which is good if you want company in the day as a solo traveller when all other guests are out. Went to the baths with a new volunteer at the hostel which was great so we didn't both go alone. Bed was comfortable. Rooms and... More

I really enjoyed my stay in this hostel. Good location, to start with; it's also pretty cheap. Nice bathrooms, always clean, as the whole hostel. I really liked my room, especially the fact that there are no bunk beds, but just regular comfortable beds, which is great and makes you feel more like home. There are also lockers in the... More

I arrived very early and they still check me in anyway, provide me a towel and a padlock, gave me tips and valuable information about the city. Very cozy and well located, you have the tram station outside the main door! Can't complain about anything.

I stayed here for 4 nights, and had a lovely time with the super nice and helpful crew at Big Fish Budapest! Everyone was very warm and welcoming, always asking us how our day went, what we got up to, and giving expert tips on transport and local goings on during our stay. They even loaned us umbrellas when we... More

This hostel is small, but all of the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. We stayed in the 8 bed room. Everything was clean. The staff helped us with directions and where to go on tours and where to go out at night (and even came to the ruin bars with us). The location is unbeatable. I would recommend to any... More

The close proximity to the nightlife coupled with the smaller hostel atmosphere made this a truly memorable and amazing experience. The rooms are all super clean as are the restrooms. The location is simply amazing. You're within walking distance to just about anything nightlife related you could possibly want. I will definitely stay here again whenever I am in Budapest!

The hostel is small but it's very clean and tidy. There are four bathrooms that are shared with all the guests, but they are very clean. The staff is very friendly and always willing to give helpful tips about the city. The location is excellent, in the heart of Pest.
