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.
