“Good location, bad atmosphere.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

We stayed at Rainbow Hostel for a few nights during our visit to  Budapest. The location is great although there is a long walk from the station at around 35 minutes. Centrally located there are a lot of places to see and it is easy to find your way to the old side of town. Upon arrival we met or host who spoke very broken English which was a little unfortunate as he was quite hard to understand and didn't understand us well either. The hostel is very small and is set on top of a salon which the host regularly had clients who smoked, the smoke came up into the room as well. There is no common room so it's hard to meet other hostellers. There is only one shower and one toilet, both are in the same room. The kitchen is fine and there is free laundry, providing you have powder. Rooms have air-con which was very welcome in the summer heat. I can't say I'd recommend this place for anything other than the location. I wouldn't stay here again and I don't think they should advertise themselves as a hostel, probably guestrooms would be more appropriate.
