“It's home feeling for me...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

这家旅馆很不错,是我住过的少有的家的感觉的旅馆,很安静,干净,也很舒适,厨房很舒服,房间很大,有舒服的沙发,最让人留恋的是靠街的阳台,坐下来喝杯咖啡欣赏夕阳留下的影子和余晖很是享受!最重要是服务特别好,下次去一定还住他们家!It's a great hostel,feels like living at home,nice kitchen,rooms are very big and clean.the balcony facing to the beautiful street.sit there to enjoy sunset are so relax and enjoy. Excellent service.
If next time go there again definitely will stay there....

By the way money well spent in this hostel.

Lovely staff, clean and fantastically modern hostel. Well located near the Oktagon metro stop and short walks from many main sites in Budapest. Really helpful staff, Smart TV in shared apartment, clean modern shared bathrooms and quiet area even though located centrally.

I would highly recommend this hostel to friends.

My friend and I arrived exhausted after a 14 hour train trip from Berlin, but we found the directions provided on their website (they provide directions from the train station or airport to the hostel via public transport) easy to navigate, and arrived in no time.

The hostel itself is clean, beautiful, and well equipped. Value for money does not even come close to describing this place. Minimal traffic noise, and a requirement for keeping the noise down after a certain time at night. This was such a relief!

There hostel lacks good signage outside, but so long as you have the address written down and look at the doorbells carefully, you'll have no trouble.

Jack was friendly and attentive, joking with us as we checked in (early, I might add, what a gem) and made sure we knew all we could possibly want to know. Throughout our stay we knew exactly who to ask if we had any questions at all - Jack is knowledgeable, and is a local, so has wonderful suggestions and insight.

Thanks, Friends hostel! You can bet I will be back

I stayed here with 3 of my friends for 4 nights and I only have good things to say about this hostel. First of all it's location is incredible, very close to many bars and restaurants and near a metro station for easy mobility once you feel the need to go deeper into the city. The hostel is incredibly clean and relies partially on the honest work of it's guests. A full kitchen is offered to the use of the guests as long as they promise to wash their dishes and keep the place clean. There's also a small "honesty cafe" in the kitchen where snacks and drinks are offered for a very fair price and can be purchased at any time by dropping the adequate some of money in a jar. The free laundry service is great if you've been on the road for very long and you're planning on staying in Budapest for close to a week (which I highly recommend doing). Overall this entire package is wrapped up by an incredibly affordable price, only matched by the friendliness of the staff.

Room Tip: My friends and I stayed in a four bed private room, but after peering into the others we quickly rea...

Stayed here with 5 friends and the location is perfect - right near bars and clubs such as Instant and Peaches and Cream. The hostel is very clean (perhaps as a result of the numerous and slightly humorous signs asking that it remain that way) and the staff are very helpful and patient (we're sorry - we were a bit loud). Only problem, as mentioned by other reviews, is that you have to practically be silent after 8pm, which is hard for 5 19 year old girls, but then again, that's our fault for choosing the hostel (which is decidedly NOT a party hostel). Also that we only got one set of keys (we probably should have asked for another). Very good value for money and Jack is a charm once you get used to him.

Good price for a centralised location and clean hostel. Booked a twin and got a large room that could easily sleep 4. Basic amenities are good, strong showers and almost never had to wait. Kitchen's a little small, but that's a good reason to try the delicious Hungarian food around.

I found this hostel to be very clean and friendly. the perfect place if you are looking for somewhere quite to relax. the hostel occupies one floor of an apartment block in the centre of budapest and is perfect for those travelling alone. The owner is a lovely gentleman who occupies the hostel till about 6 in the evening and then goes home. The hostel gives off the feel of apartment living. The only problem is that all people staying in the hostel must keep very quite after 8 in the evening for fear of complaints from neighbours.
the price is extremely cheap and I would highly recommend it.
