“BED BUGS! But, very accommodating of large group....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

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.

Room Tip: Well, don't stay in the apartment just down the hall from the office that has two rooms for a wh...

I spent a couple of days in Budapest with my friends and we really loved this hostel. Comfortable rooms, helpful staff, friendly roomates, affordable price and the location is excellent!! I did not need to spend so much money on public transport as I could reach the main sights and many bars by walking. I would recommend it to anyone!

I really liked the unique style of this place. Modern and creative interior in a beautiful old building. The rooms are clean and spacious, the hostel is clean and well equipped, security is nr. 1 and the staff is very nice. On the top of this the central location opens the door to explore the city easily.

Room Tip: Since I travel alone I chose a big room so I made new friends in a minute.

The intercontinental sits on the Danube River and the rooms facing the river are large well equipped and comfortable.Whilst it's a large Hotel the staff are very warm and pleasant and make the experience more intimate. In a city where the population don't smile this establishment seemed to break the pattern. Shopping was a short stroll up the road and cruising the river was a walk across the road.

Room Tip: Ask to have a river veiw

Stayed here for a weekend for a stag do, location and price were spot on, facilities ideal for our party and no safety issues.

Maybe air con would have been handy, or some fans.

I stayed in this hostel twice, both times being satisfied. The location is great, everything is on walking distance. Staff is normally quite friendly and eager to help you plan your further itinerary. I guess I was lucky that not many people stayed here, although both times I stayed during the high season. Lockers are available, bathrooms clean and computers (2) with internet are working properly. Only strange thing is that there's a major power socket scarcity.
