Can't believe I read a bad review recently on the receptionist viki. 13 of us stayed here 6-9th June & 1 guy went missing for the whole weekend. Viki the nicest receptionist we experienced that weekend was so helpful & very productive in finding our lost friend who eventually turned up safe & well. The other staff members where an... More

Stayed at the hostel this summer with a group of over twenty. With one exception (with which the staff were prompt to deal) our stay featured quiet, restful nights in dormitories that were both clean and offered a surprising amount of privacy given our large group. The lounge space offered a relaxed and comfortable area in which to watch the... More

The rooms are comfortable, and very quiet; the walls are so thick that you can hear nothing. The service is exceptional. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Vicky, at the reception, was always there to look after us during our two week stay. Not only had she provided us with information, but also assisted in making bookings for events... More

The perfect location to explore Budapest: near to the centre and nightlife, but not too noisy. The quality is brilliant compared to the price too. The dormitories are big but each bunk bed is separated with a wall and curtain and has a lockable closet. It does mean that it can be noisy at night, but you do expect that... More

Thank you for the feedback! You gave me an idea how to increase security feeling for the dorm rooms -by "automatic" closing the door. Hope to set it soon! Thank you also for the nice feedback! :) More

We stayed in the rooms on the top floor which had a huge window that turned our room into a greenhouse - SO hot! Viki the receptionist was terrible, she was extremely rude and unhelpful. She didn't know anything about the city and told us she didn't have time for us when we asked her questions. She even put her... More

I came here with a friend, it was the perfect location. Next to everything so you could walk almost all of it. Very close to a street full of cool bars and restaurants but not so close so the noise did not bother at all. We stayed in a big room, it was really good because each two bunks where... More

The hostel is conveniently located near the Blaha Luj o.s. metro station. Close to the station, there's a Spar supermarket. Closer to the hostel, there are Spar and Tesco supermarkets. We booked there because we got a great rate for a private triple with bathroom for 3 nights. The room was more for 2 people but they added a bed... More
