The hostel is relatively small with about half a dozen functional rooms of various sizes (single/twin/doubles/dorms)...There are shared kitchen and bathroom facilities and a small TV room situated next to the reception area. The rooms located next to reception are often noisy, since they are located just off the hallway and the walls are on the paper side of thin.... More

Lovely little spot! Nice and quiet, really friendly staff, and very clean (the girl at the desk even mopped the bedroom floor which is always nice to know!). It's in a great location as well, and surprisingly well-priced! If you use the wireless printer, you have myself and my 2 friends to thank - we set it up at 2am... More

Before arriving, I received an email from Viktoria, giving me clear directions to the hostel, thus there was no problem finding it (there's no sign so you have to find it by the street and building number). As it was our first time in Budapest, Viktoria recommended a few tourist attraction, to which we really enjoyed. We could communicate well... More

The hostel was awesome and the staff too. I have talked to the guy at the reception for like 2 hours. They were always there to help me and give directions and tips. The location is really good, in the middle of Pest.

This is a small scale (16 beds) hostel in the centre of Budapest. The place opened in the summer of 2011 and therefore everything is brandnew, modern and clean. The staff is young and friendly. The place is (not yet) easy to find though and the front door does not look very inviting, but it deserves your visit.

The staff is very attentive, I received a letter addressing me personally and explaining some useful details just after reserving the room on “booking.com”. Everybody was very friendly and helpful (they immediately supplied us with... More
