The cleaning is clearly not their strong point
There was weeks old dust all over the place
The bathroom mat was seen its best days years ago
We had a tap running constantly as it was impossible to close
On the possitive side it is in a great location and the shower was recently renovated

Caterina hostel is hidden in a grat old building just in the center of Budapest. Huge rooms with wooden floors and attached bathrooms are spacious and comfortable. and no bunk beds!They do miss lockers but that is the only disadvantage.
Simple breakfast is included and you can have it in the great veranda on the main patio. Kitchen and internet for free.
The best of all is staff! Incredibly helpfull guy will help to arrange anything you need. And he does remember old guests!
I do recomend it specialy with such a good price!

Room Tip: rooms withe a street windows are brighter but more noisy

This hostel was okay. The building is interesting as it is quite old and the staircase is very very long and the hostel is located on the top floor. Our room had two bunk beds and a private bathroom. The small apartment we had had a nice little kitchen and it was good to be able to store food in the fridge but overall the hostel was just a bit old and unkempt. I didn't like the vibe there and found the hostess a bit abrupt and evasive.

This place is managed by 1 dude. He cleans, he washes and make your bed. So you can imagine so much a person can do to welcome 20 something people. There were no proper reception let alone its own entrance or any kind of organization.
Just good for the pocket for one night

do yourself a favour and don't stay here... there is 6 flights of stairs to hike up to get to the front door and then there is 3 doors to get into your rooms. the tv didn't work in our room and the management weren't concerned to fix it. you can't adjust the heater in the room since they took the knob off the control, they call the hallway the 'common room' the breakfast is full of sugar and not very fresh, one of the staff members was like a hall monitor especially if you didn't close one of the doors.... not good
