As I've never been to Budapest, Hungary before I wasn't really sure what to expect. After arriving by train into Budapest from Salzburg, the instructions to the hostel were easy to follow. Once arriving, we were warmly greeted by reception. The receptionist spent at least 25 minutes recommending things to do in the city and unique places to visit. The hostel is a small 3 to 4 room accommodation set out with dorms and private rooms, that sleeps less than 30 people. It was a really decent change up in accommodation. I've stayed in hostels all across Europe, but this by far had the best backpacker feel! There is a communal 'chill out' lounge, where guests were easily able to interact and establish friendships. All the receptionists, especially two called Frank and Atilla were extremely welcoming and always up for a conversation. Each of the three nights we stayed there, the receptionists taught us about local arts, music and culture.
Overall, I had a really enjoying time at home plus hostel. I would definitely recommend this hostel, as it has a great homely vibe, is cheap and central to town!
