We stayed in the rooms on the top floor which had a huge window that turned our room into a greenhouse - SO hot! Viki the receptionist was terrible, she was extremely rude and unhelpful. She didn't know anything about the city and told us she didn't have time for us when we asked her questions. She even put her...

I am terribly sorry for the bad experience you had in our Hostel. Steps were taken in order to avoid such bad service at the reception! Please, accept my appologies again.

I came here with a friend, it was the perfect location. Next to everything so you could walk almost all of it. Very close to a street full of cool bars and restaurants but not so close so the noise did not bother at all. We stayed in a big room, it was really good because each two bunks where...

The hostel is conveniently located near the Blaha Luj o.s. metro station. Close to the station, there's a Spar supermarket. Closer to the hostel, there are Spar and Tesco supermarkets. We booked there because we got a great rate for a private triple with bathroom for 3 nights. The room was more for 2 people but they added a bed...

I will recommend it to my friends. Located in 7th district where you find Szimpla club/weekend farmers market. Walk distance from city center and from cross---stop of hopon&hopoff blue bus. Tesco supermarket you can pay with any creditcard is just around corner.

This hostel does exactly what is says on the tin. Very cheap and what you get for the money is very good. The free breakfast is very average but again, you get what you pay for and thee fact that this ends at 11 is a massive bonus. The rooms were clean and showers alright. Overall, fantastic value...

It was a great place with friendly people, they were willing to help! The bad point was the breackfast, very poor. Estuvo todo genial y repetire el sitio si vuelvo a hungria. Los empleados eran maravillosos. La unica pega fue el desayuno que apenas habia variedad

I stayed in a female-only dorm. The room had twelve beds, but it was huge. Every bunk bed had it's own small area, with a curtain so I felt like I had my own space. The lockers were very big and the shower was nice too. The only nuisance was that the wifi was only downstairs in the bar area...

This hostel is very large with several floors and actually it looks like a big hotel. Therefore the rooms are pretty large as well which makes them comfortable and you have your own space.

People just love a good moan on here... this is a hostel , aimed at travellers, and it serves its purpose extremely well . If you're a middle aged or elderly couple on a romantic trip to Budapest this probably isn't what you're looking for , but what do you expect for the price? Myself and three mates stayed here...

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
