“Perfectly OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Very basic hostel. Horrible lumpy mattress and very creaky bunk beds! As i was at the top it didn't matter to me but the person below me moved beds the next night to get away from the noise. Very hot as no air conditioning. But nothing really to complain about! Very cheap and perfect for what we paid. Central location as the name suggests...!

We stayed in dormitory room for 1 night. The best thing is its central location (Deak Ference metro). Road to the airport from the hostel took us just 40 minutes. Moreover, fast internet, cheap beer outside and friendly staff made our day in Budapest very cosy.

After walking around Budapest for over 2 hours, we stumbled upon this hostel and we couldnt have been happier! It was cheap and great value! Location was amazing, right in the centre of Budapest! Lots of toilets and showers for each floor which meant when everyone was back from their day out, we didnt have to wait long! They're isnt a common room, however the rooms are massive with a table and chairs in the middle so we got to hang out and meet everyone in our room, and others rooms. You get a wrist band when you stay there which gives you a discount on drink in the bar next door! The bar is definitely the cheapest in central Budapest (even without the discount) and if you go on the hostel bar crawl this bar will be the first stop!

Very large hostel with many, many floors. Initially, the staff were very friendly and nice, yet this was one of only places which didn't offer a welcome shot! This was a shame as it was always fun to arrive early in the morning at a hostel and do a shot of the locals' "finest". However, i would say because of the hostel's large accommodation, it would have cost them a lot to offer a welcome shot. The room was large and was spacious enough for a table in the middle which was nice considering it was a 8 dorm. the floor had 2 individual toilets and then a male and female bathroom which contained 3 good showers each and a toilet. The rooms did have lockers to put some possessions but not anywhere to securely put your bags. The location for the hostel was brilliant as it was right next to busy restaurant and shopping streets, and was close to St Stephen Basilica, to the river and to the main road up to the train station. The beds were comfy and by no means dirty or broken. Things i would say that need improvement is the wifi as it wasn't the greatest, also the luggage "room" was a cupboard which was piled with many bags and was ready for squash anyone who dared open the door. For the amount I paid, I was very happy with my stay there. the location meant I could do lots in Budapest during the day and it was next to a bar and close to the clubs.

Beds are uncomfortable and seriously squeaky, showers are gross, doors not very secure (one kick'll do em in probably) and no common room.
But for what we paid, its what i expected and it could be worse really.

Great locstion though, right in the centre of town! Probably perfect if you dont mind slumming it and your on a budget.

They did forget our reservation though and we had to hop from dorm to dorm during our stay. Cant guarentee that this was an isolated incodent.

I stayed in this hostel for 4.5 weeks with a short-term study abroad program and it was the perfect place to be for 24 young college students! The staff was incredibly welcoming and friendly, and they truly became our friends by the end of our stay. My room was nice and clean, with a big open window overlooking the street. Beds were OK, not the best but certainly not the worst I've had! Bathrooms were pretty good, with good water pressure in the showers, and they were always clean. It could be a little noisy at times both inside and outside of the building, so I wouldn't recommend it for older couples or families, but for young people.. this is THE PLACE TO BE. You're so close to everything, the river, a major transportation hub, restaurants, bars, etc. And there's an awesome pub connected - Wreck! I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: I stayed on the second floor, which has a good bathroom but you're with the common room, so it c...

The location of this hostel is perfect! And very very cheap! But it misses a livingroom or a dinnerroom where you could met the other backpackers or eat your dinner. But you can always use the bar next door. staff very sweet!
