To begin with the place looks like an old hospital/mental institution . The rooms are extremely tiny and have really dirty walls and floors. When we awoke the morning after. our arrival we were astonished to find the place crawling with ants - hundreds of them. When we were eventually relocated our next room was the same size with blood on the walls . You also have to pay for a fan . To make things worse the hostel is halfway up a mountain on the buda /old side of town so it really doesnt live up to its name . Worth 15 euro per night? no way I wouldnt stay here even for free if i was homeless.

It's not because 'newly renovated' means that they're still in the progress of renovating and are actually situated next to a buildingsite. Or because the 'green part of Gellert-Hill' means it's quite a hike to any of the interesting parts of town. Or because the place has the atmosphere and characteristics of an empty hospital. Or that the little amount of toilets were mostly dirty and out of paper.

The thing that tipped me off about this place is that it was simply unfriendly. From the moment you walk in, you're told to obey the rules through print-outs with an abundance of exclamation marks: checking out late? Pay up or you'll be forced out of your room!!! Parking on their property? They'll call the police!!! Smoking in the room? They'll call the police some more!!! Making noise after 22:00? Police!!!

Sure, any hostel needs rules. But they are not enforced by threatening your guests through pamflets in every room. Especially not when the staff seems incompetent to actually enforce those rules themselves. (It was quite noisy at night). In fact, the staff seemed incompetent to complete the simpliest of tasks. They demand you leave your roomkey at the reception when you go to the city, but fail to ask for ID when returing, thus handing out keys to whoever shows up at the reception with a random roomnumber. Paid services they advertise are doing the laundry or fixing breakfast. None of which they got right a single time we asked (and paid) them to.

They provide beds for an ok price. That's about the best thing about the place. Don't go here if you're looking for a nice, friendly place to hang out. Because then they probably will call the police!!!!

Room Tip: Мой совет: не выбирать это размещение тем, кто не привык к "аскезе" :-)
