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

I was staying in 8 persons dorm in the hostel. The atmosphere was very friendly and homelike, staff always helpful. For the price we've paid I haven't high expectations, the location was the main reason why we've chosen Colors. It turned out to be a great choice - everything was close by. I wish they had some more things to... More

The location is really great, just a few steps from the main shopping street (Vaci street). I stayed there 3 nights, and the staff was really nice, they helped me a lot to find local places. The price was extremaly cheap for this good located place.

This hostel is incredibly tiny. I felt like it could've been cleaner. The staff left something to be desired. The directions on their website are absolutely horrid. Good luck finding it. They advertise a 24 hour reception, but that is untrue. We were trying to check out at 5:00 to catch a train and no one was there. We waited... More

For the price, we weren't expecting much. In that sense, the hostel exceeded our expectations. Location was excellent -everything was within walking distance. We managed to get a room to ourselves, because we had a party of 6. We had fresh linen, and the rooms were clean enough. However, we didn't have a private toilet, and there sometimes was a... More

The two most advantages of this hostel are price per night (in our case 7 Eur) and location in the center. We spend one night during winter and occupied one room (8 people) - it is typical hostel room with bunk beds, lockers, table. We got clean bedclothes, also bathroom looked clean, Stuff on reception was not very kind (one... More

The only positive point is the location, cause it is near everything. But the place is extremely simple, staff is not sympathetic, not confortble at all, one of the worst hostel breakfast in my long experience.

I stay in this hostel during 5 nights whit some friends. The rooms are very dirty, the staff not friendly and the beds uncomfortable, but the worst is that in the beds there are lice!!! The only good is the situation and the price.
