So, we missed our last train and needed to stay in Budapest at the last minute. This hostel is very close to the train station. The won am working was super nice and helped us make sure we didn't miss our train the next morning. They were very accommodating at a late hour for a group of eight.
That said, we got into the two room apartment with our eight people, only to discover that one room was completely infested with bed bugs! My friend had two in his bed and jumped up. Then my friend found several on the couch in the same room. We told the folks working at the desk and they basically said we could all stay or all go and that he, the manager would sleep in the bed because he did not believe the bedbugs were there. He said they came in the open window. If you have ever experienced these terrible little bugs, you know they don't come in through the windows. That night, most of us perched in the kitchen waiting to catch the early train. We saw so many bed bugs in that one room, we lost count.
This seems like a nice hostel otherwise, and the woman working was trying to be helpful, at least until then. Obviously they couldn't do much, but the flat out denial does not bode well for the next group staying in that apartment. So, be ware.
