We stayed at Friends Hostel for 2 nights in a 4-bed room (there were 3 of us, but we booked the entire Aba-Novak room and had it for ourselves). The receptionist was friendly and helpful, but you should know that (at least during certain parts of the year) the hostel doesn't have 24-hour reception. If you come in late and no one answers the intercom, try calling #42 (another hostel in the same building, partner with Friends). The location is great, very close to Oktogon metro station, 4 & 6 trams and Ferenc Lizst stop of the hop on-hop off buses. The Opera house is 5-10 minutes walk away and there are tons of shops around (and a Starbucks across the street for the coffee addicts).
The room was clean, the kitchen had everything you need and the TV room was small but comfy. I had a great time watching Eurovision with my friends and a couple of other girls in the hostel. I also loved all the paintings and the funny murals on the walls!
Recommended for anyone visiting Budapest.
