Some friends and I were backpacking around Eastern Europe for the winter holidays. Arrived late at night to the WRONG ADDRESS provided on the website (the hostel had recently moved). Walking couple blocks away, finally found the hostel, but let's be honest the place was a complete mess and looked like stuff of horror movies. The reception wasn't too bad...

I just stayed there in August 2016. It was a terrible experience for our group, especially it was the first night stay of our trip. After the trip, I checked the review to find why it could have 4-star review. Some review says there were fake reviews. So far this is the only reason can convince me. I am interested...

I stayed in apartment 17 on Vaci Ut. right in the centre of things. The apartment was for up to 4 people but I'm glad I had booked it for just myself as 4 in one room would have been very cramped. Also some of the other bedding was stained so no one would have wanted to sleep in those...

This hostel is oriented on offering its guests having fun. Not very clean, not quite enough space in rooms, but having fun is guaranteed! If you're looking for comfort, cleanliness and silence, not recommended. If you want to meet a lot of new people, have fun and sleep as least as possible - totally recommended :) Choice is yours. Personally...

Breakfast was simple, bathrooms were decent. Beer games were happening when I walked in, was a happening place. The locks to our rooms were not working though, so anyone could literally work inside. Luckily, there were no issues as such, and I had a decent stay there. The place is right next to the street, so it will be pretty...

We were a group of student, around 150 people from Prague. Basically the whole hostel was booked for our group. This hostel is the worst hostel we've have ever been to. The bathroom was not cleaned and the shower was still full of hair from previous guests. I basically did not move in the shower, tried to not touch the...

This hostel is one of those cases where you just have a good time a pretty average hostel. I am going to give it a good review because me and a friend made our time there a good one! It's a good location, you gotta drink in Instant right over the road. The staff are pretty lazy and act like...

Stayed for a while. Met many females traveling alone that stayed here also, saying that they felt a little uneasy about the guys that worked there. A very close knit group that seem to like to do everything together. The highlight of living there for free seems to be the group of girls that like to travel. As soon as...

We recently stayed in hi 5 for a long weekend for a lads holiday and found the hostel to be very disappointing. We were located in what used to be in the old hostel on the top floor. Although we'd booked well in advance for a 10 bed dorm, the 9 of us were split into 3 different rooms all...

Great way to save some cash but the common area always felt a little dank and the kitchen equipment left much to be desired. The advertised dinners but that´s not the case. Breakfast just means some cereal. Having the pool table available was nice. There´s beer pong everynight and the pub crawls to the ruin bars were pretty good. Be...

If you're tired of traveling alone and want to meet other travelers, if you're looking for a hostel that feels like home rather than an institution, this is the hostel for you. David Hasselhostel is a place where you will make friends, see the sites, join us for Budapest's great nightlife, and just chill out when you feel like taking it easy. Most of our guests say they never want to leave! ... more   less
