I stayed here while backpacking through Europe. We mostly chose it because it was in a very central location and the prices were great! We expected an average hostel experience, but what we got was so much more! The hostel was so charming. We slept in this loft area and the workers were SO welcoming. They made us feel right... More

I've never stayed in a hostel like this. Like other reviews mentioned, it is more like a friends place, than a hostel. The kitchen and the rooms are really cozy and with nice decoration. You have enough space for yourself and the atmosphere is more like home, because there are no bunk beds. The staff is very nice, they know... More

A very quiet hostel that feels very homey. Perfect for people looking to get away from the bustle of city life. The staff is very casual and very relaxed which eased a lot of stress. There are at least 2 markets nearby where you can buy meats, vegetables, bread, other sundries to prepare in the kitchen. But the cleanliness of... More

The hostel is a 7-8 minute walk from the M4 line Rakoczi ter stop if you're coming from the Budapest-Keleti train station. It’s also conveniently located near supermarkets, restaurants and the #4 & #6 tram stops. I got a really nice, warm vibe while staying here because it felt like staying at a friend's apartment instead of a hostel, with... More

This place is clean and cheap and friendly. Not a traditional hostel which is, ok/interesting. I had some issues because it wasn't the most private. They staff start turning on lights and playing guitar at 930 in the morning and if you're trying to sleep in, good luck. Also I tried to rent a bike and said "ill be waiting... More

Lovely small hostel in a very quiet area but only 10 mins walk from the restaurant and bar area. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Floorboards can be quite creaky so earplugs is advisable for light sleepers. All in all, a very relaxed, clean and friendly place to stay. Would definitely recommend.

The best thing about this hostel are the staff. They are very friendly and welcoming and have some great knowledge on the local area - both the history and things to see/do. All given to you on first entry to the hostel. The location of the hostel is a little far out from the main sights and attractions but good... More

Perhaps the best hostel I've stayed in during my three months in Europe. The staff cares about your stay in Budapest and make you feel very welcome- they help you plan your days, they greet you with coffee or tea. The beds are all individual (no bunks) and have thoughtful partitions separating them from the common areas. Just a truly... More

Beautifully decorated with a lovely chilled out, hippy atmosphere. A small intimate hostel, you will meet some very cool people and have many interesting conversations here. Not a party hostel but I went as a solo traveller and met some really nice people that I spent a few days with including heading on a night out to one of the... More
