We came here around 7:30AM and we were probably the only tourists, and the only people under 70 years old...which was great and made for an authentic experience. It is a bit confusing when you go inside. You enter, and there are several ticket counters. We purchased the morning pass with locker, which was inexpensive. We took the metro and got off at Hosok Tere (Hero's Square) to see Hero's Square, and walked to the baths along the park, which was about a 10 minute walk. They provide you with a waterproof wristband. After the ticket purchase, I was thoroughly confused. Through the Eingang (Entrance) sign, I only saw men. In America, genders are typically separated in spas. However, don't doubt yourself and go straight towards the man in the Eingang area. He will direct you downstairs, where you will find a Men's locker room, and a Women's locker room. I see in previous reviews, people have said to swipe the wristband to lock your locker. However, my experience was different. After swiping all around a locker that was open, I could not seem to lock my locker. A patron there showed me that you have to match up the circle on your wristband to the circle on the locker handle and press in. Voila, that locked the locker. It is very safe and you need not worry about your personal belongings. Make sure you bring a towel, flip-flops, bathing suit and many people also had bathrobes. I would suggest bringing a thicker towel, or a full-size towel if you want to sit in the steam rooms. They are extremely hot, and you will want something to sit on. We only brought thin camping towels and the heat from the wooden seats in the steam room were too hot. Also a swim cap is needed in one of the swimming pools, but that pool was closed when we were there. The building you are in when you enter is the main building of baths/steam rooms. The other building on the other side of the outdoor pool has a small snack room, and private massage rooms. Make sure you just keep exploring different areas in the main building, even if a door/room seems inaccessible. There are doors in the most random of places in corners, and if you go through different doors, you will find tons of niches and steam rooms/pools.
The outdoor pool in October was only lukewarm although the circle wave is really fun. The two outdoor pools are different temperatures---one is more therapeutic and the other is more invigorating. Feel free to ask people that work there questions you may have. They try to be very helpful. The great thing also, is that you can go to all the steam baths and pools with your partner, as it is a mixed gender spa. As for cleanliness, it wasn't dirty by any means, but very rustic and barebones. The water wasn't brown and there were not any floaters, and nothing was slimy. If you want to shower after, bring soap, as they do not provide any luxuries like soap or shampoo. We spent about 1 1/2-2 hours there and it was a perfect getaway.
