“Amazing staff, great party friendly atmosphere!”
Reviewed March 20, 2012

LOVED this hostel! It was fun and friendly. The staff were great and very helpful. (I left my blackberry there and they found it and shipped it back to me!)

They cook you free food sometimes.

The rooms were VERY basic. Just beds, a mirror and drawers for your stuff. They were also BOILING, it was a heat wave whilst we were there, and with windows and fans going the room was still to hot. There is no locks on the doors to the rooms either, as lots of people share, meaning they don't like to give out keys in case people are locked out.

Everyone (apart from one suspicious character who was staying there) was lovely, and we played drinking games all together every night.

The hostel is above an amazing bar/club which has a great atmosphere and is decorated to look like something out of alice and wonderland.

Overall it was great!

This is an amazing hostel, don't just take my word for it - experience it!

We went there for my Stag do in mid February 2012 for a 4 day weekend and it ticked every box. You don't come here for peace and quiet, but if you want somewhere really clean, super cheap, awesome staff and right bang in the middle of Pest above nightclubs and bars then this place is for you.

It should be noted, the music from the clubs and bars doesn't affect the hostel much as they are down two flights of stairs, but that is one of the best things about this hostel, the fact there are 4 or so bars and 2 or 3 clubbing rooms at your finger tips. The bars and clubs are very laid back too, with a good mix of music, most nights of the week.

The location couldn't be better either. It is about a 15 minute walk from the central station, and about a 10 minute walk from the Parliment, right in the centre. There are bars all around the hostel and a shop over the road. Buses also pass by outside.

There are plenty of places to eat around too.

If you are a group after a good time, or travellers, then you couldn't wish for more than this hotel in Budapest, as the title says, one of the best experiences I have ever had!

Room Tip: There are 2 x 4 bed rooms, 1 x 6 bed and 1 x 8 bed room. They do allow you to book out the whole roo...

A friend told me to come to this hostel, so i just got in here without a booking and they were actually really cool to me! The rooms are pretty big and everything is clean; there are several bathrooms and two big kitchens.
But the best of all, by far, is the STAFF! they are reaaaaaaally friendly, always helping if needed and recomended me the best places to go out.
So i cant wait to come back to this wonderful city and to this POWERFULL hostel.

Room Tip: ask Gyuri, the manager, he will give you the best ;)
