Abbiamo pagato anticipatamente una camera doppia con bagno privato ma, al nostro arrivo, la nostra camera era stata affittata ad altri ospiti, per cui il proprietario ci ha assegnato un'altra camera molto meno confortevole, con materasso a terra, zona notte al I piano collegata da gradini ripidissimi e soprattutto con bagno in comune, nell'attesa che si liberasse la stanza che...

My friends and I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights, 3 girls in a private room with shared bathroom. We stayed in the red bus 2 part, which seemed to have more rooms, but we found even despite this there was never a queue for the shower/ toilet. The room itself was lovely, 3 comfy beds plenty of space... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Red Bus very much and would certainly recommend this to other Budapest travelers. The room was clean and featured both a private bathroom and toilet. The staff was very friendly and took the time to indicate the city's highlights and go-to streets and places on a map. During the nights, you can enter the... More

Our host, Monika, was great with us, she wasn't at the hostal when we got there, but a nice man in the bulding gave her a phone call and she arrived within minutes. We stayed only for a night, and didnt had much time to... More

The location is ideal there were some difficulties with wifi while we were there so we got a discount which more then made up for the incovience of walking the two blocks to McDonalds to steal wifi. I also want to say that my hostelling days I thought were a little passed (like about 5 years passed). This is not... More

The biggest problem I had with the hostel was with the shower because it flooded and you had to stand in water other people had been showering in. There was only one shower for women, and only one bathroom for women - however, I didn't ever have a problem getting into the shower / bathroom. The bed that I slept... More

very nice and warm place with superb location - the street located in the centre of Budapest. I really had a great time. the only problem was that wi-fi was not working. I believe it will be fixed. Staff is ok! All the guests were nice people to have a chat. P.S. There is cool Red Bus bookshop in the... More

I stayed here with a friend in May 2007 and we had a great time. The location is excellent, the hostel is clean and the guy at the reception was always willing to help us out with all of our trip. It is not a party hostel which means we got a great night sleep!

The Red Bus Hostel was far from a bad hostel. The location was great, right in the city center and near to almost any subway-line. But the hospitality wasn't that great, we could only pay in cash and in advance, while they put on booking.com there was a possibility to pay with Visacard. I met some friends who were staying...
