“Experience Budapest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

This place is not located in a by-tourists-overwhelmed area, instead u get a busy location, very good located near public transport(metro, bus, tram). If u are looking for the drinking tourist experience, u better go to pest. If u want a place in the busy citybudapest is, this is really a great place, a great staff and a great price. The bi&bi is located in the small street between the metro station and terec utca, just search for the kfc, go into the street and 50m on the right u'll find it!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

it´s the only place we slept in budapest, so i don´t know the standard there and have no comparison. the staff is very friendly and professional, all young people ready to help you. the location is the best, close to the metro and buses, in a quarter full of life, restaurants, next door to the mammut shopping center and the thermae lukac and kiraly. the room is small and basic but warm and the beds are comfortable. the bathroom is really small and unfortunately without a window or a proper possibility to change the air inside, so it smells a bit. the curtains in the shower should be replaced by glass.the place is clean at first sight but we tried our usual trick to sweep the corners of the bathroom with a peace of wet paper and it came out dirty, dusty and with hairs attached to it.they could do it better because the rooms are small to clean and just a few.
you have free coffe and tea all day long.
we slept very well because the place was not busy but if it is don´t´forget (as a couple expecially) you don´t have any privacy because the walls are really thin: that means that the last night we slept there we were at 5.00 am awake hearing to a phone call from a person in the next room. that could be annoying, really. the rooms are straight conected to the breakfast room, so from 8.00 am is really difficult to sleep longer because of the standard noises due to the fitting of the breakfast.
we enjoyed the breakfast, everything fresh and presented like finger food. they change the variety of croissant and small cakes every day.plenty of stuff.
my final advice is to sleep there if you are travelling basic and budget because the price is great for what you get. don´t expect privacy or extreme quitness. I travel a lot and honestly found the current feedback of 9.1 really exhaggerated: i would rather say 8.

I don't write reviews very often, but I felt compelled to recommend this place without reservation. We stayed for a weekend and it was one of the best places we've stayed in any city. The staff made our stay. They were welcoming, helpful and polite. The rooms were bright and clean and the breakfast is excellent for a hotel in this price range. They even offer a cooked breakfast with choice of eggs. No rubbery ham or stale baguettes here. Overall very impressed, amazing value and ideally located within walking distance of Buda Castle.

This B&B is at the edge of the Castle District. One block from the metro/tram/bus depot. Across the street from a shopping mall. Lots of places to eat within a block. Starbucks on the corner (if that is important to you). Clean. Great and helpful staff.

Little hotel with very helpful staff, clean, very comfy beds and yummy breakfast, located in the centre of Budapest, across the road from the Mammut mall. Great value for money, would definitely stay again!

We spent 3 nights a this b&b and were extremely happy with our stay. It's a small basic b&b but gives you everything you need - not luxurious but very good value for your money. I emailed them before our arrival to get information about getting there from the airport. They responded immediately. The rooms and bathrooms were small but the beds were comfortable. The breakfast was great and they would make you whatever you wanted in addition to what was on the buffet table. The air conditioning was excellent as was the internet connection. It was just steps to the metro which would take you anywhere you needed to get to. The staff was kind and very helpful with whatever was needed - a lovely group of young people who wanted to make your stay as pleasant as possible. I would stay there again and would highly recommend them to friends.

The BI hostel is the best residence I've visited so far in my traveling in Europe. The hostel is managed by a group of friendly and helpful people who are willing to give us the hands of help during our struggles. The room is super clean and the facilities are well provided. The breakfast is brilliant and well prepared. I have my stay at BI for 2 nights and it was perfect! Due to the heavy snow and the problem I faced during my travel to Vienna, I've to come back to BI again and they offered us 1 room which can be resided for 4 persons for 6 persons without any extra charge. They are very generous and always willing to give us help and answers. There hasn't been any negative side at BI so far. The cost per 1 night is also very cheap. Overall, there's nothing not to be liked in this place!!!
