“Homely, Great Location, Great Staff”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Stayed in NJoy for 2 nights, great location next to Astoria metro station, staff were great, good company. Good for meeting other travellers that are travelling alone. Facilities were clean and comfortable. No complaints. Due to the location you get a bit of street noise but not much, but you are going to get that if you want accomodation close to the city centre and attractions.

Not a long walk from the Danube, few streets back, or not far from the Parliament building or the castle on the hill. Staff are more tha n helpful to book tours, opera or even recommend places to eat, they can provide discounts to places also.

If I had to return to Budapest which is more than likely, I will choose Njoy again.

Thanks
Craig

Njoy hostel is a great place to stay in Budapest! It's located next to Astoria metro station. The staff was so friendly and helpfull. We slept one night in a private room that was huge and clean and the next night in a room for 6 people which looked great too, but because there's two windows to the street it was a bit noisy and harder to fall asleep. The shared bathrooms were clean and private. I really enjoyed my time there!!

This is such a wonderful, friendly little hostel! It feels very personal and homely, with lovely bright decor. We had a very comfortable stay here, the rooms are large and spacious with lots of space to store your bags and padlocks are provided by the staff too! The kitchen is lovely and large and has so much space if you wanted to cook meals. We were treated to a traditional hungarian dinner too, provided by the manager which was delicious! There is excellent wifi and free computers too if you do not have your own. The only problem were the bathrooms, as there are two so you can find yourself queueing. However, the bathrooms are very large and clean so it is not really a problem. The hostel has a deal with a local cafe which serves great food and is discounted too which is great!
The staff are AMAZING, especially the lady who's name I never got who started working there on the 1st of July who was absolutely lovely and so kind - i hope she reads this! Thank you for being so kind!
Excellent hostel, go and stay, and enjoy Budapest!

Room Tip: There's a phenomenal ice cream parlour only a little way down the road if you leave the hostel a...

Great hostel. Nice and clean, very homie and decorated nicely. Good location, close to the metro station which makes it easy to get to major sites.
The owners even visited the hostel to make everyone largos which was delicious - they were very friendly.
Each bed had an individual cupboard underneath with a lock to store your personal items.
Nice kitchen area and clean bathrooms. Free wifi and computers. Tv and movies. Lots of information on tours etc.
Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly -
Anna was lovely and easy to talk to. Very caring and understanding while I was feeling home sick one day.
A big thank you to Gabriella who helped me print out my boarding pass and who called the airport shuttle bus company to help me get to the airport on time. She was an absolute life saver.
Awesome hostel. Highly recommend it.

Njoy is cute and small and well situated to walk anywhere you want to go in Budapest, and also 1 minute from the subway and a tram that goes straight to the train station. The staff was very nice and helpful, and our double room was huge, and very clean.

I would have given 5 stars except that the bathroom isn't ensuite, and 40 Euros a night is steep for a shared bathroom....the hostel was full when we were there and there was often someone in one of the two bathrooms. Also, there were no shades in our room and there is a street light DIRECTLY outside of the window, so bring an eye mask and earplugs, as the hostel is on a busy street transport wise.
