Hostel is overall a good place to stay. I stayed here for five days, visiting lake Balaton and also Esztergom by train and bus respectively. For those who don't mind a 10 minute walk from the metro station or the tram station, this hostel is well connected. There are kitchens to use and computers with internet, and also wifi on every floor!

For me the main issue was these tiny flies hovering around. Maybe some net kind of materials should be placed on the windows so that windows can be opened without having to deal with these flies. There are also eateries nearby (~2 mins) with a pizza place selling big pizzas at just about 4 euros!

The hostel we stayed in had a nice friendly vibe about it, not in the party sense but in the comfortable sense. I think there should be more showers and toilets per floor for the amount of people, and also some other room mates kept leaving the door wide open and not locking it which was slightly concerning when we would leave our bags there all day. This isn't so much the hostels fault but maybe they should caution their guests or tell them to be more considerate of others. Overall the running of the hostel and location etc was great, would definitely return.

Was very pleased with our large twin room and was able to use the shared kitchen and pleasant bathrooms and shared desktop computer. Staff were very helpful and showed us how to get round by trams, metro and places to see + looked up how to get to airport etc. Could store our baggage when we left for last day. No common room but everyone very nice in kitchen area and was a great base to walk to central market and centre or you can get the tram or metro too. Also £11/night each for a private room - you can't go wrong really can you?

We stayed as a group and had most of the landing to ourselves. There are a few shops, cafe/bars and restaurants around the area if you do not fancy going into the centre. Everyone in the group found that there was enough romm with plenty of showers and toilets.

In may I was on a business trip from my universtity with 4 other students in Hungary, so I had to find a place to stay. This hostel was really helpful when I asked about booking and payment methods through email, and also when I arrived. Room was large and clean, we had all we needed- kitchen, toilets, showers, wifi and so on. I look forward to come ack and stay there next year aswell.
