“Lovely room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Our room was lovely - really spacious and light. Very clean, with lockable bedside cabinets and a balcony. The hostel was tiny, with only 5 rooms or so. There were 2 showers which we never had to wait for, and 2 toilets. The hostel was run by two women who were really sweet and helpful.
The only bad thing was that we thought there was a kitchen, but it turned out that there was only a microwave and sink, but no cooker.
It was a bit hard to find initially and the tube instructions on the website were wrong, it would have been much easier to get off at a different stop!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

This tiny hostel only had 3 private rooms and 2 dorm rooms (no idea how many dorm beds per room). It was a bit hard to find as its in a residential building and not well marked. The staff was professional yet a bit distant. Our room was right next to the 24 hour reception which made it a bit uncomfortable since they were aware of our every move and bowel movement. The shared bathrooms were clean and the showers had hot water and good water pressure. The room was clean and comfortable, the only problem I had with it is that the curtains were thin and there were no hooks to hang your towel after the shower (no towels provided). The internet was amazingly good and we were able to stream shows online (maybe the only benefit to being next to the office?) Checkout is at 10am.

We stayed 2 nights at Black Apple after deciding to extend our stay in Budapest. Our original hostel was booked, so we moved here.

Essentially we were shown to our room, and told not to slam the door. Kitchen facilities were good, showers were clean.

A basic hostel where you get what you pay for, but might be worth shopping around elsewhere first.
