“Wonderful place to stay in Budapest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013 via mobile

I don't write reviews very often, but I felt compelled to recommend this place without reservation. We stayed for a weekend and it was one of the best places we've stayed in any city. The staff made our stay. They were welcoming, helpful and polite. The rooms were bright and clean and the breakfast is excellent for a hotel in this price range. They even offer a cooked breakfast with choice of eggs. No rubbery ham or stale baguettes here. Overall very impressed, amazing value and ideally located within walking distance of Buda Castle.

This B&B is at the edge of the Castle District. One block from the metro/tram/bus depot. Across the street from a shopping mall. Lots of places to eat within a block. Starbucks on the corner (if that is important to you). Clean. Great and helpful staff.

Little hotel with very helpful staff, clean, very comfy beds and yummy breakfast, located in the centre of Budapest, across the road from the Mammut mall. Great value for money, would definitely stay again!

We spent 3 nights a this b&b and were extremely happy with our stay. It's a small basic b&b but gives you everything you need - not luxurious but very good value for your money. I emailed them before our arrival to get information about getting there from the airport. They responded immediately. The rooms and bathrooms were small but the beds were comfortable. The breakfast was great and they would make you whatever you wanted in addition to what was on the buffet table. The air conditioning was excellent as was the internet connection. It was just steps to the metro which would take you anywhere you needed to get to. The staff was kind and very helpful with whatever was needed - a lovely group of young people who wanted to make your stay as pleasant as possible. I would stay there again and would highly recommend them to friends.

The BI hostel is the best residence I've visited so far in my traveling in Europe. The hostel is managed by a group of friendly and helpful people who are willing to give us the hands of help during our struggles. The room is super clean and the facilities are well provided. The breakfast is brilliant and well prepared. I have my stay at BI for 2 nights and it was perfect! Due to the heavy snow and the problem I faced during my travel to Vienna, I've to come back to BI again and they offered us 1 room which can be resided for 4 persons for 6 persons without any extra charge. They are very generous and always willing to give us help and answers. There hasn't been any negative side at BI so far. The cost per 1 night is also very cheap. Overall, there's nothing not to be liked in this place!!!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We were there at starting of Jan 2013.
First I want to say that price versus quality is very good one (we took an offer via booking.com).
Room was spacious, we took a four persons room. One of the most important think is that the cleaning of the spaces are very good one. Not so good for finishes, painting and outlets.
You will not have a TV in your room, but in the lobby is a LCD TV with a large number of channels.
The staff is very friendly, prompt and adapt in all of our requests.
We served the breakfast, a good one, with meat, butter, fruits, a large variety of eggs, juice, coffee...
The locations is near a shopping center Mammuth where if you need something is very simple to reach.
It was a good choice and I recommend it.

Just a few steps away from all means of public transportation, the pension is perfect if you plan to explore the city. The personnel always smiles, they are friendly and helpful and they try to answer all your questions and fulfill your requests. The rooms are cozy with a clean bathroom, the breakfast is abundent and they serve fresh vegetables as well. I would recommend it to everybody.
