“Friendly place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

One of my favourite places on my last trip to Europe.
Clean, central and a great place to make new friends. Olga is lovely and very helpful with suggesting places to go and things to see. As a solo traveller it was great to meet people, everyone staying there was so lovely and the opportunity to go somewhere different every night was brilliant.
Highly recommend staying here if you're visiting Hungary.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Don't get me wrong, this hostel is perfectly fine. It is clean, has an excellent central location (within 15min walk of attractions on both sides of the river) and Olga is really fun and friendly.

On the down side, there is no air conditioning (or perhaps it wasn't working when we were there) and in summer Budapest can get very hot. It also doesn't have a sign - so make sure you remember that it is number 2!

Every night people go out clubbing with Olga - the only issue with this is that there was some pressure to join in. It is not a 'party hostel' in the conventional sense, but there is some pressure to go out. I don't think this is a big problem - we went out one night, not on another, but it is something that people might want to be aware of before they book.

I have been four night in this hostel, and i loved it. Olga makes you feel like you are at your home. She is always smiling, helping you and trying to jojn everybody. It is a nice place to make new fiends.

Hard to review in a sense.We had a lovely time:staff were very accommodating+friendly. They even took us on nights out - thanks guys! The location was good,place was clean enough and all guests got to know each other easily. We were a fan of the atmosphere and good vibes.

Despite this,you could say it was sometimes a little too relaxed.Some people may not like the receptionist (when reception was actually manned) coming out the shower and greeting you only in a towel. Shower sharing was not the best and the water went whenever the drier was on.

We had a great time though and really couldn't complain. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Budapest!!

We came very late at night, and could not find any other hostel that still had beds available. Olga took us in, and made us feel at home right away. She also showed us the good bars to go to. this hostel is a very good place to stay, and we really enjoyed being here.

We had three very enjoyable nights at the Bubble - the staff were very helpful and being such a little place it feels very personal. They added really nice touches by sending us a welcome email before we came and a goodbye when we left.

Everything was clean and comfortable my only complaint was that our double room smelt a little musty but not a big deal.

Would recommend.
