Nice staff and good location near metro and tram lines. Road noise and wooden floor can be disturbing when try to sleep. I made my bookin using Hostelworld and now I tried make a review with some negative comments but I couldnt do it 'cause my bookin was canceled.. I think points should be 87 thsn 100 and all the bad comments are deleted..but not a bad hostel but not 100 points

What a find, a great friendly, well priced hostel in central Budapest. Very close to resturants and town. The staff were fantastic (with café lattes thrown in for free).
The building is old but cared, the room was clean and tidy (bathrooms too, didn't see the dorm rooms so I can't comment there). There's a kitchen corner and a lounge.

I was there in July 2010

loved everything about it!

It's an older building so it's got alot of character but what really makes the place special is the staff, had the best expierence mainly do to how much effort the staff put in to make sure you enjoy yourself steve in particular the guy Noticed I had a punk shirt on so the next day gave me info on all local gigs! If you want a people expierence the goat hostel is the only place to go.

We were staying in the Goat Hostel for one night in April, and it very much felt like home! The hostel is conveniently located close to metro and tram station Kálvin tér. Into the centre of Pest it is also an easy walk. When we arrived we were greeted by one of the staff guys who gave us a lot of valuable information and hints where to go, showed us things on the map etc. We were also a given a short guide in German! The rooms were all very clean and nicely done. One of the other rooms was just freshly painted during our stay. With duvets, sheets, towels given, this hostel is close to hotel standards! There is a nice common room with TV and free internet PCs which much more looks like a living room in a shared flat than like a hotel lounge. Staff put up breakfast earlier for us than usually (we had to leave rather early for our train). Having been used to instant coffee in most of the places, it was a pleasure to get freshly brewed caffé-latte here!
To sum it up, good location, good rooms, great service - definitely a place I can recommend!

This hostel is a very good one. Totally relaxed and quite communal, it almost feels like you are staying in a share hous with the owners. The size is small and the facilities good. Free internet and DVD's (for recovering from palinka). Near the river and easy to find, cheap as well. Highly suggest it

This hostel is great - easy to find after coming off the trains. We were only in Budapest for a few nights but this was ideal. The showers weren;t the best but compensated for by the great owner who really knows how to run a hostel. Helped us know where to go - and nearby a good jazz bar/local bar/nightclub and 24 hour shop. A really good backpacking experiance!!

Located close to metro and near popular shopping street. Grocery store across the street. Double room had comfortable bed and spacious sitting area. Shared facilities include simple kitchen area and bath. Separate room for one toilet and then separate room for 2 showers and one toilet. Locks on all doors. Common area has box of DVDs you can borrow. Two computers with free Internet although one was broken at the time of our stay. Free wifi. Breakfast is sparse but given the price we paid, it was reasonable. Let us store our luggage for the day.

For the price, this hostel was great as it was clean and provided us a comfortable place to stay. Would stay there again but probably not for multiple nights.

Stayed: June 2008
