“Not worth for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

We stayed in a 4bedded room, it was quite small and with a shared bathroom. The place was generally clean, but 10€ is definitely too much with a hostel not really in the centre and without a kichen to share. Bycicles for rent are very expensive too, you can find them cheaper at Hotel Charles, for 2000HUF instead of 3000HUF per day. You can get a breakfast for 3€ as well, but with that price you can have 3 breakfasts in a bakery or somewhere nearby. The staff was ok.

The hostel itself was good : clean bathrooms and sheets, very very cheap ( we paid 9€ a night), the drinks at the bar as well...

Now it's located closed to a big road, which didn't disturb me while sleeping but I know it disturbed some of my friends.

There is also no breakfast, which is also too bad, but for that price I think we just need to expect a clean hostel !

It's not in the city center, but you can take the tram, whose frequency is very good, even on sunday. I just suggest you to change your money at the very beginning otherwise you may find some problems.

Good things first: clean rooms, clean bathrooms, nice cafe with internet, patio under the trees, bikes for rent, convenience shops are close and the city centre is within easy reach by tram 61.

But it was impossible to sleep in the room facing the street. Huvosvolgyi ut is an extremely busy road and drivers go very fast, accelerating for the nice stretch of straight road ahead. I doubt that the back rooms are any better. They face the tram road.

Not recommendable if you wish to sleep.
