Zrinyi Guesthouse
Ranked #143 of 191 Budapest B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 26, 2012

Price and location are pretty good, but there is a lack of courtesy by the manager/ owner. His attitudes seems to be of someone who is doing you a favor rather than someone who works in the hospitality industry. We rang 3 days prior to our arrival to make sure we could get an early check in ( actually , a extra night as we arrived at 2.30 am) . We were told there would be no problem, but after checking in that night we were rudely informed that the manager/owner had no knowledge of us at the time we arrived.
It was also very hard to find the place as well, as there's nothing in front of the building saying that there's a guesthouse there. We asked around the bars that were open at the time and no one seemed to know the location of Zrinyi.

I cannot wait to write this review. I read other reviews about the noise but I thought I could handle it with a earplug. I was too naive. The rooms are right above the courtyard where the DISCO party lasts until almost 400AM. It is not the noisy you can expect from street cars or people's talk. It's DISCO party!

The room is simply and clean. The public toilet is clean. The location is wonderful. If there's no party, it is not a bad choice though.

We stayed here in last summer. The rooms are really nice but without private bathrooms. For the price, this place is excellent.

It is very centrally located. Most places of interest are walking distance from Zrinyi.

A lot of reviews complained about the noise... I think that made the hostel a fun place to stay at :)

The staff was helpful. They recommended a traditional hungarian restaurant (I am forgetting the name!) that was a great place for dinner.

Simple but effective. if yo want a low-cost central crash pad with wifi then this is your place. They have a night club downstairs now which is noisy so if you are booking ask for an outward facing room, rather than one which faces into the courtyard!

Room Tip: Don't face into the courtyard as the nightclub is below.

Struggled to actually find the hostel but once in everything seemed very clean, cosy and home-like. Reception staff could be more helpful, they seem to just surf the net and chat on the phone lots but can't answer many questions!!
The rooms are great, good size, comfy beds and wardrobe space. Shared bathrooms are kept clean with three toilets and two shower units. The main point about this hostel is the club downstairs- the hostel rooms' windows face out to a courtyard come nightclub and believe me- it's noisy!!! Music til 4am fine if you are out partying yourself, not so good for early starts or flights. Location is perfect, pedestrian street so no traffic noise, not that you'd notice over the thumping bass though!

Amazing location (in the very heart of Budapest), amazing staff (extremely friendly), amazing cleanliness, terrible noise. The noise is not the hostel's fault - it comes from the disco on the grund floor. The owner was very kind to give me a better room , where the noise level was tolerable, so I did manage to get a good night sleep. They are not hiding the truth about the noise problem. Who on earth authorised a disco underneath a hostel? One other thing - the toilets are shared, but spotless. So: If you have a good pair of earplugs, or can tolerate the noise, or you want to join in the party, do stay at this hostel. If you are looking for a quiet place, this is not the best option. They do their best to accomodate guests, they even offered that, should I find the second room still too noisy, they will move me to another hostel on a different street. Nice people.

The hotel is well placed but the reception is very unwilling, pay attention the bathroom and WC is shared. Every day there is a disco playing till 3 o clock or more. Very difficult to sleep. During the weekend it might be longer the disco. You could fin better place.
