“central, cosy, great room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

I spent a few nights here in december 2011, and I have to say i loved this place. The hostel is very clean, very central, it has very good access to transportation, but you can walk everywhere.
Parliament is 3 minutes, and it is free to visit for EU citizens!
The hostel has a very good character, nice colours, decoration, but the best thing is the room, it is very nice, comfotrable, large bed and matresse, nice furniture, well kept.
there is free wifi, and the kitchen is also well equipped.
The negative is that the bathrooms are shared, but it is not really a problem, the 2 large shared bathrooms are enough.
The other thing, that the owner, Laslo if i remember well, is not always there, he is there to check everything and clean the place in the morning hours till noon, then he comes back later in new guests are arriving. So you have to ask everything in the morning from him.
All in all it is a very good place, especially for the price, we paid less than 30 eur for a double room.

Room Tip: choose the red room if you are with spouse, and want a silent room, inform the owner about your arri...

I think the title is self-explanatory. I was badly bitten by a swarm or bed bugs, which spoiled the rest of my holiday; since I (as it turns out!) have a mild allergic reaction to bed bug bites, I was not able to enjoy any of the thermal baths, and spent the weekend in pain.

The live-in hostel receptionist had bites on his body as well - he showed them to me and said that his bites were a month old! His arms looked pretty bad. (Brings a whole new meaning to "let's compare our arms"!!!). This leads me to believe the parasite problem at the hostel must have been a long-standing one.

The worst thing is that in my personal opinion the hostel staff did not appear to be sufficiently concerned - not as I would have expected them to be. They did not show any perceptible surprise or sympathy, did not even apologise to us. Not even by email afterwards.

I wish somebody had warned me ... STAY AWAY FROM THAT PARASITE INFESTED HELLHOLE.

The rooms on the street are directly above an outdoor pub where the district taxi drivers drink and shout all night. Even with both windows closed their horns and drunken fighting kept us awake all night. 40 euros a night is a scandal to pay for a hostel anyway, but especially when they are renting rooms over a pub. The public areas of this dump of a hostel are filled with empty bottles and rubbish. This people who rent these rooms should be ashamed of themselves.

I spent 5 days last summer in this guesthouse, i found best cheap possibility. The house is very close to the center of Budapest (about 200 m from famous Parliament) - about minute walking to the metro station, in the second floor of the house. You can free use internet (WIFI), shared 2 very clean bathrooms and toilets, kitchen (well-equipped) or courtyard gallery. The 5 rooms are clean, spacious and modern furnished. Staff is very helpful, friendly and english-speaking. If you are seeking cheap, good-located and nice accommodation, go there.

positives- location , near parliamnet building & a metro-tram station,
very very clean, friendly staff who speak excellent english & will come if u text them, price is reasonable, rooms are very good, free internet, kitchen to use & hot water in showers!

negatives - staff only there a few hours, one of the locks on bathroom broken , heating way to hot for me but noneof these a real problem. bUT this place is very hard to find!!! there was no sign outside of building so had to rely on street & number, there is a small intercom with "origo" on names list, the hostel is on 2nd floor (i think) of large building, go in lift then look for hotel, again no signs., bear this in mid & i would reccomend this place still
