Reviewed October 14, 2013

Nice, clean hostel with spacious rooms bang in the centre of Budapest. The hostel is run by a couple of very warm ladies who speak good english as well. The place is well maintained and the hosts are wonderful people. The perfect place for the budget traveller.

It's not a large standard hostel as you may find elsewhere. Located in an old building of 2 nd floor and in Oktogon(which just near a metro station), the hostel is run by Sophie (in Hungary names...) and her friends. It features 1 double room, 1 triple room, 2 4 beds room and 1 8 bed room..(seems like that with maximum occupancy at 20-30.) and a common kitchen and bathroom. It's more like an apartment of university dorm, where guests can all sit together chill and chat at night. The room is large and clean,warmly decorated and designed(I upload my double room photos..It has a wall decorations !!).
The people running this hostel knows Hungary well.Though a schengen and EU country, it's still a relatively traveller backwater comparing to its popular neighbors Austria or Czech.But the hostel management groups are prond of their countries and they are very informative and kind people. That's top notch hospitality.!Chat with them and you will learna lot about this fascinating city and country.
That's def a highlight of your Hungary trip, if you really want to know something about Hungary and like to be private a bit about your hostel stay, Guru is def your top choice.!

i found guru hostel after deciding to extend my stay in Budapest after my friend went home......and i am so glad i did!!!!

its quite easy to find(even though they don't have a sign on the building but on the intercom) because it is literally 100 yards from the oktogon in Budapest.

the staff are ever so friendly and speak perfect English, especially the woman as she lived in England.

they are very informative of Budapest and Hungary as a nation and the history, i spent most of my time there just sitting and chatting with them.

the 8 bed dorm room is large with lockers although the bunk beds are a bit squeaky and wobbly but you are in a hostel in the heart of the city for less than €10 and not a 5 star hotel.

i hope to go back to Budapest soon and guru hostel will be the first thing on my mind.

The woman who checked us in was very nice, and extremely helpful. Our beds were comfortable, and the showers were extremely clean. No breakfast, but a nice cup of coffee. Close to public transit and many fun places!
