This hostel was unlike any others I have stayed at. The hostel is basically an apartment that has been converted to a hostel. This means you get to interact very closely with a lot of people and can also use the kitchen facilities. Shandrel (I probably spelt his name wrong) was very helpful and able to guide me on various... More

Me and my friend choose this hostel because of the price/conditions. The guys in reception were reaaaally great and kind, always willing to help. However, the wc/baths were really close to reception (wich also was the kitchen and resting room), which was very uncomfortable, everything could be heard to one room to another. The inside linens were really dirty and... More

....our hostel upstairs went under refurbishment. Nice colourful, homely feel to this place and would recommend staying here. Decent location and 24 hour reception, much better facilities than our previous one.

I went here the last year. I think that is a good place to stay when you go with friends, but the staff is a bit serious, they never smile and are very cold. They also slept in the same room as us when it was only for those who had booked, but hey, it is not a bad place,... More

We stayed in several hostels during our stay. This was definitely the best. So much so, that we returned to it during our time in Budapest. The staff were some of the greatest people I have met during our time. Had so much fun with them. The hostel was clean, tidy, and worth the money (which was cheaper than pretty... More

We stayed in many hostels in Budapest. Color was definitely the best. Such a laid back chilled atmosphere and the staff are all so lovely and great people to get along with and easygoing. Loved this place so much, will be the first place I return to when I come back to Budapest.

Arrived after a 13 hour train journey feeling exhausted and stressed. The hostel has a door on the street with a small sign saying 'colors'. When you get buzzed in you have to walk up a couple of flights of stairs that look a bit worse for wear. I was apprehensive at this point wondering what I had got myself... More

The location is the first thing that's it's great about this hostel. The staff is VERY helpful and friendly, the breakfast was also good, nothing too much but enough to eat something before you leave the hostel and start exploring the city and it's free. Cleanliness was also ok, the toilet and the bathroom were always clean enough. There's just... More

We stayed here one night after spending 3 nights in a different hostel nearby. We picked this hostel because it was close to the first one. It's location is great and the price is very fair but I would not stay here more than a couple of nights. We stayed in a 6 bed dorm and the room was clean... More

The location is the great thing about this hostel. It is really close to the white bridge and near to the main attractions in the city. It is very cheap, so if you are travelling with little money it is convenient, but if you want to spend some more and be comfortable i'd recommend you to go somewhere else. In... More
