“Excellent hostel”
Reviewed October 10, 2011

I stayed here while travelling around europe and it was one of the best hostels I stayed in. It's small so there is a cosy feel. Everyone hung out together at night. The rooms were big, so it was fine to have 10 people in them, and there were safes for everyone too. The kitchen was ideal for cooking and socalising and there was even a common area with a tv. The only problem was the bathrooms, which there were only a few of. The shower wasn't especially nice.
I would definitely stay here again.

If you want a place which is small and feels coasey, this is the place to go. Good beds, location within 5 min of good bars, food etc. Little bit of a run down road, but it does not matter too much. Next to the 24-7 tram line, so easy access, and not far from station. With good kitchen, and free coffee to help you on your way morning. Only shame is no free meal.

Perfect location for a few days stay. Near to some good bars and about 15 minutes walk away from the main attractions. The staff were lovely. Will definitely stay there again.

This hostel was awesome! Super friendly staff, really fun and we all felt like a big family! Rooms and bathrooms were really clean and access to the kitchen came in handy. Big fish definitely made my Budapest experience all the more amazing!

Nice hostel, clean, large dorm rooms, free internet, large kitchen. Fairly good location. A little warm as no air con or fans in large dorm room. Staff obliging and interested.
