The decoration is something unreal. Just gorgeous. Like Alice in Wonderland. Excellent localization. Great cleaning. Just the bed was not so comfortable and the pillows were too low. All the rest amazing. Really nice price/quality.

Lovely, quirky and unique hostel, friendly and helpful staff, brilliant location (6 mins walk from the Jewish quarter, 6 mins from Danube, opposite a bus stop direct to airport) and very clean. Great price too, what more would you want?

It was a nice clean place in a good location. However, staff were nowhere to be found. The hostel is top floor as well so there are many steps so be prepared for that. The window in our room was covered by a curtain way too small so people could easily look in. Overall, the place is ok. Probably wouldn't stay again.

We had a fab stay here last week, it’s such a lovely friendly place very laid back, clean, green, arty and right in the centre of things! On our arrival Thomas greeted us and asked us what we wanted to see, and gave us lots of tips on quiet places to drink and places of interest. We were able to walk to the Gellért hotel about a 15 minute walk away for some amazing Art Deco thermal spa therapy and got a 24 hr travel card to visit further a field. Plenty of coffee and eating places right on your front door step. On once you’ on the top floor, it’s the best! You are able to relax away from the hubbub of the city, enjoy!

This is a really great value hostel in a super location for exploring Budapest. The decor is pretty unique, rooms are a fair size and the staff are really helpful. For a hostel, its pretty well appointed and pretty clean but it is a hostel or budget hotel so there's no air conditioning and most rooms have shared facilities. Shame that a few visitors didn't realise that and were quite disappointed on arrival..... Be aware that the hostel is on the top floor and there's no lift - there's about five flights of stairs which can be pretty intimidating after a long day. Don't forget to bring cash - the hostel does not have credit card facilities and they would prefer that you settle the bill in local currency on arrival....
