“Cheap but no services”
Reviewed February 18, 2011

I travelled with 4 friends for 2 nights. The staff is not so friendly. The breakfast is included but non-existent (bread and jam). Actually it's an apartment converted into an hostel. The common room includes the reception, the kitchen, one computer and one fridge.
The only positive fact is that the hostel is really quiet (You cannot do noize because of the neighbors).

We had booked a double room with private toilet and we were set into an apartment, to share with another couple. Each room had a private toilet but shared a common room with kitchen and living room.
The common room was beautiful but unfortunately the rooms were small, with horrible view and with a very hard bed (it gave me back pain). I actually don't think it was a real bed but a sofa converted into bed.
Super small toilet.
Ok location, in the center of the city. For this price, you can find much better.

We booked 2 dorm beds for 5 nights but only ended up staying 1 night after finding bed bugs in one of our beds (and hearing that one was found in the bathroom). It was a bit of a hassle since we had to find somewhere else to go and it took some negotiating to get our balance refunded but, in the end, we got it sorted out so there were no hard feelings.

The place itself didn't have a great vibe (people weren't very friendly) and the place was a bit dim but the staff were kind...

We certainly wouldn't stay here again but the location is OK and the staff were helpful so if you can't find anywhere else, it would do. If you can pre-book, however, go to the Budapest Bubble...Olga and Yumi are just fantastic and we really enjoyed our stay there.
