“It's the nostalgie that will bring you back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

It's also used as a dorm for CEU students, so I've stayed there for two years, and ever since I benefit from an alumni discount, so whenever I go back to Budapest, i usually stay there - mostly out of nostalgie than anything else, I guess.
It's quite far from the center, though the public transportation is good and available any time of day and night. There are McDonald's and a supermarket within walking distance, and a shopping mall (Arcade) a little further down the road.
The rooms are tiny, so is the shower cabin =) but usually they are quite clean. If you come during summer school time, or a very busy time in general, you will get a room without a TV and without towels, and this kinda sucks.
There is a cafeteria, and breakfast is included, and it's not too bad.
The swimming pool is shallow but nice.
Overall - if you looking for something cheal, but do not want to stay in a hostel with 5 other people - this is the way to go.

Room Tip: Try to ask at the reception for a room on the 1st floor - they have TV and are generally better and...

For a residence centre, this was really great! Had a lovely swimming pool, and managed to do a decent breakfast every day. Bit far from the tube though.

It's a 3-star? Give me a break! I've stayed in student dorms before so I didn't expect too much, but this one leaves a rather pathetic impression. I can put up with the shower, which is so small you barely fit in there, with the shower head shooting the water in all directions and just one (!) small towel for all your needs, but not with mold! The shower heads with mold growing on them, mold in the corners of the bath, dirty and cracked toilets, etc. I inspected about 10 room before I found one which was relatively okay, opened the window wide to get fresh air and did NOT turn the air conditioner on just to minimize the amount of mold in the air, because in one of the rooms in grew like crazy on a sheet of paper towel, which I used to cover the counter, after a few drops of water got on it. Br-r-r ...

The breakfast was okay, you won't go away hungry but don't expect anything fancy. After the mold experience, I didn't risk to go to the swimming pool or the sauna, so can't comment on that.

Locationwise, it's about 3-4 bus stops from the metro, which is convenient, as public transportation is quite reliable.

Overall, I'll definitely NOT stay in there unless I get a free deal.
