“Thank you so much”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

The owner of hostel is very nice! I had only one night at the hostel but he told me very kindly and let me know many sightseeings and gourmet restaurants. I just followed his recommended routes and it was perfect! Moreover, my train time was 11p.m but he allowed me to stay hostel until the departure. The hostel was just 2 minutes from the train station. Of course the hostel is quite far from the riverside but you can go to the riverside by taking a metro or by walking. If you want to go to the hostel directly as soon as you arrive at Budapest, then this hostel will be a perfect option!

I stayed here with my boyfriend, we booked a private room for 2 people. The place is a bit difficult to find so you have to make sure you read the instructions on how to get there. When we arrived, we found out that the room was actually a little apartment just down the street from the actual hostel. It was a very clean apartment with all the ammenities you need, including a washing machine and kitchen. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful, would stay here again.

我在那边住了两个晚上,住宿离匈牙利火车站很近,很方便,附近又有一间很好吃的匈牙利餐厅(你可询问那边的staff)hostel的入口处就只是很普通,但是进了门,是会让人惊讶的。很有本土味道的hostel,很清洁,员工也都很好,非常舒服,又有wifi,真的值得推荐给大家!
What a amazing hostel, I still miss the moment when I was in Budapest .
The hostel is really nice , and special!! The staff is friendly , room is comfortable , clean and marvelous! I like it to much, people who are looking for cheap and nice hostel , that is your firstly choice.

As I was arriving at and leaving Budapest from Keleti train station, this hostel was clearly one of my first picks. The neighbourhood isn't quite fancy, but you are 10 minutes away (3 metró stops) from Deák Ferenc tér, so this is in fact very central. The building looks a bit run down but once you get inside you have a nice apartment feeling. This is a very small hostel (12 beds) so don't expect to meet a lot of other travellers there. Amenities: no bunk beds, large lockers, super fast wifi, kitchen with free tea coffee, very clean bathroom, sheets included, friendly staff.

Looking for a hostel in Budapest? The words in the title of this testimonial explain why I would recommend you Locomotive Lighthouse Hostel to you: the hosts are very kind and interested, the place is really cozy and breaths a peaceful atmosphere, it is well-equiped with good bathrooms, a proper and well-equiped kitchen, as well as with a washing machine and of course wi-fi! It is located just accross one of the two main stations of Budapest, Keleti, and the place well-managed by the hosts and therefore and comfortable and clean hostel to stay at. I slept in the mixed dormitory, which is cleverly set up and gives enough privacy and safety for men and women!

My fiancée and I wanted a private studio, so we booked through Locomotive for 3 nights. They had arranged for a taxi to pick us up and 40 minutes later we had arrived. The building is very art deco, black and silver, very cool. The apartment is adorable and looked like a 'grandma's' house with a fabulously large bathroom and a lovely balcony.
The bed wasn't the most comfortable bed I've slept in, but it was large enough and we had plenty of linens.
We found a very convienient tram that took us to the main trams so that was really handy. It's only a 15 minute walk into town anyway, but the trams are so easy and more fun!
Budapest is wonderful, so much so, my fiancée and I are thinking of going back for our honeymoon.
For clean, reasonable rates, I would recommend this studio.
