In the city center, 5 mins walk to the metro station. The hostel is newly decorated , almost everything is new, stuffs are kind and helpful. It has a large kitchen and dinning room, you can cook some food as you want . even through the toilet is quite small. Compared to the price , it's a quite convenient place.

Hostel is extremely centrally located and is in a great neighborhood for walking - we didn't use public transportation our whole stay in Budapest, except to and from the airport. Staff were always friendly and helpful. Hostel was clean, spacious, and we benefitted from a 6 person room to ourselves for 3 nights because the place was not at all... More

Very basic accommodation located a 2 min walk from the centre of Budapest. Right by the metro station though I found it quite difficult to find as it is not very well signposted & the directions on the site are confusing. The winning part if this hostel is definitely the staff. The staff members that I encountered were absolutely lovely... More

If you are on a low budget go to the Base Hostel. It's ok. I booked a bed in a 6 bed room. I had access to the wifi and the computer as well. That's all I needed actually :D Bathrooms and other rooms don't look so good but the stuff are really welcoming:)

Rooms are very basic, dirty and noisy (only advantages of this place are great location and its price). Avoid it if you are not a student with no job or someone who does not need to sleep and looking only for a place to drink.
