A fully equipped kitchen, free tea and coffee. Also, two cats and a dog, all being very friendly and well behaved. The proprietor s are great people,... More

It's awesome hostel. It has no atmosphere like hotel but it has like family. The staff is so friendly and it's so easy to meet other traveler. Furthermore, a dog and a cat as pet are nice as well. If I will visit in Budapest, I must stay here again.

I was suppose to stay for only a couple days but I ended up staying a whole week! The hostel is super cozy, the guests and staff are really laid-back. It's really easy to meet people and make new friends here since its quite a small hostel...

If you want privacy, this isn't the place. The rooms are very open. Aesthetically though Mandala is a marvelous place. A hippy environment with friendly staff. Decent location, not far from most attractions. Well worth the price, ensuring a comfortable stay.

The windows were not helpful at all as there were buildings next to it. The room was noisy.. people keep walking in and out of the room and due to the... More

I really felt at home. At first I wasn't qutie sure if I'm in a hostel or in someone's appartment but then I felt really welcome. The hostel isn't big at all. It has 2 rooms and everything has a hippie vibe. And hey have an adorable cat - this is quite important if you're allergic. I liked the decorations... More

Mandala is a little cosy hostel, in a good central and quiet location. There are only two rooms and two bathrooms shared, the biggest one has indian style and also includes the living room and to go in the second one, the zen room, you'll have to pass into the first, sometimes it could be a little noisy, but the...
