The experience was not what I anticipated at all. We really didn't stay at the hostel, but had a room in someones apartment. Nothing wrong with the room itself, but it was kind of strange living there with the other people. There was usually nobody at the lobby, and you could only reach the host of the hostel by phone, and even then she could not understand everything I said. The place had good wifi, decent shower, good bed, but as I said, we were in someone elses apartment and not in a hostel room. Can't say how the rooms at the actual hostel are.
Very close to the city center, good shoops nearby, a lot of places to eat or drink coffee or beer. We had very nice room with one dobule bed and it was perfect for a couple. They allowed us to stay a bit longer becouse of our late bus, but 1 hour before we were about to leave, the boss told us to leave, becouse he is afraid that we want to steal something. Not cool.
Spent the last days of August in this hostel and booked a private 3 prs room. The staff is really friendly and helpfull! The room wasnt that big, but was Clean and perfect for us to stay a few days. Supermarket, bars, clubs and public transport are all in walking distance. I can definitely recommend this place if you wanna stay in budapest a few days!
Our apartment on Vaci st. was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Specious, comfortable and fully equipped. The location is probably the best in the city - a central pedestrian shopping street but inside the apartment is very quiet. The hosts (Attila, Anna and Cornelia) all went out of their way to help us and help us plan our activities.
We stayed in the YOLO hostel for two nights, it was amazingly cheap for two nights in a private double room with shared bathroom. The bathroom and our room were super clean. The girl who worked there was so friendly, she recommended us thousand of places. The hostel is clean, there is a nice kitchen and it was really quiet and calm when we were there. I would definitely recommend this hostel, it is close to the city center, and in a safe neighbourhood.
