This hostel is located near the Gellért Mountain and The Central Market,also the bus stop to the airport is about 1,5km and you can go to it by foot.There stuff is working 24 hours per day and it’s very useful if you have an early flight.

My friends and I stayed in a private room for three nights and the experience was incredibly pleasant. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, the staff were very helpful and it was within short walking distance of several supermarkets and the subway. Excellent value for money.

Hostel is very nice and clean, our (private) room was situated in a building next to the hostel but still shared a kitchen area with about 3 other rooms, was ideal for everything we needed - had all essentials. Room was clean and tidy upon arrival. Beds were comfy. Location: near to tram stop and close to metro. Small shops and supermarkets nearby are excellent for groceries. Only con would be that you had to pay for the use of a fan and it got quite hot in our room.

Thank you very much for your nice and detailed review! We are happy to read that you enjoyed your stay with us. Actually it is the same building just another staircase. Since you booked a room with no airconditioning it can git into the price of the rooms or only make pay the Guests who need it. Since our budget policy means that you only need to pay for something you asked for we do not build it into the room prices but ask the payment from those who use it. Hope to see you again! ;)

Visited with our 4 small children. Great family room. Helpful staff, close to the centre and really quiet. Private parking off the street is a great addition. Couldn't recommend highly enough for a cheap venue in Budapest.

With my friend we booked a double room with a private bathroom just few hours before arrival. The room was big (actually suitable for 3 people), very clean and very practical equiped with everything a non complicated traveler needs. I must point out also the nice staff at the reception and the great location of the hostel - near the tram station, with the bus station just around the corner and the metro station 400 meters away. When visiting Budapest and Sziget festival, I will book this hostel again!

Professional receptionists in the reception. Dorm rooms and bathrooms are all clean. Kitchen with few tables . Balcony to relax. No smoking inside but outside ok. Free maps available. Not very close to the city center and to get to the city need to walk around 10 minutes to get the tram/metro line.

Good points: location was good as it was next to the trams. In the city centre within minutes. Comfy beds, offers fans...at a price, quiet at night and 24hr reception. Good place for a short stay though. Bad point: we asked for a mixed dorms but instead we were in a room with just females. Suggestions would be to make sure each mixed dorm has at least 2 people of the same gender. The showers rooms need sorting as they were unclean and water everywhere.

Thank you for your feedback! We are happy to hear that you liked our Hostel! Well, mixed dorms mean that we do not need to take care of who is staying in it they get occupied as the reservations come in. It is not even possible to sort the reservation to make it the way you mentioned. Gender restricted rooms mean that only man or woman can stay there but mixed dorms don't have such restrictions. We clean showers twice a day, the rest depends on how much the Guests respect each other by at least mopping up after themselves. Best regards!

Stayed for a short visit to Budapest with a couple friends. We were given 2 rooms that were comfortable and clean. Beds were comfy and pillows were decent as well as the great prices the hostel offers. Rooms were a little hot at night due to the warm weather but opening the window the whole day solved it. Only downside is that the hostel is split into different apartments in a big building- so meeting other people is a little difficult. Just something to take into consideration. Location is decent but can be a trek late at night after going out. Just order taxis through the hostel reception before heading out to avoid scam drivers. Thanks for the stay.

Thank you for the nice and detailed review! We are happy to read that you enjoyed your stay with us. Non-stop tram 6 is also a good option to come home during the night, however, it is a bit more problematic with the replacement buses running now during the renovation of the tram line. Hope to see you again!

Good points: localisation, secure car park, 24h reception, cleanliness. Bad points: Noise from the street, noise from other rooms (water, toilets, stairs). The worst: airless sleeping area upstairs, it's probably common problem in the summer because hostel offers fan 2E/day and 20E deposit.

Stayed here with my husband for 3 nights. Very helpful and pleasant staff, basic but a nice stay we liked the shared kitchen and balcony facilities. Excellent tram location. And 24hr spar and little pub on the corner perfectly positioned at the end of the road. Thank you for a nice stay
