Very clean and tidy hostel. Our host showed us what to visit, gave us a map, recommended some local restaurants and bars, had some great advices about nightlife. All in all, the best hostel I've ever been to, has everything you need!

A great find, A small, cosy and comfortable hostel. Room was clean and comfortable and warm. Bathrooms all really clean. Perfect location, right by Kasinzky street that has lots of great bars and places to eat. Really quiet and safe area. Only a 10 minute walk into town. Very good value, especially for a private room so close to town!...

Very good place for young and old. I am very glad that I chose this hostel traveling with my 70 year old friend. It is a little picky. If you feel well here this place is great! It is warm and cozy and quiet. I highly recommend because it is affordable and in the city center.

The hostel is located in a nice area, close to all the main attractions. It is clean, nice and cosy. There's free and quite fast WiFi in the rooms, which is a huge plus. The staff was very helpful. Plenty of restaurants, bars and clubs nearby.

I picked out this hostel's private quad room with a group of 3 other people, since it's a safe walking distance from most of the tourist attractions, including the train station, the Basilica, and the Dohany street synagogue. It's dirt cheap and it's squeezed in an apartment complex between 2 buildings meaning it's very small, but don't judge too quickly-it's...

It is a cheap hostel, perfect for backpackers. We got a single room and we have everything we need. There is a kitchen so you can prepare a quick breakfast. The hotel is exactly where the city center starts and it is 5-7 minutes walking from one of the most popular ruin bars of the city "szimpla kert"

We stayed at LIVE hostel for 3 nights. It was a wonderful experience. The rooms were very clean and check in was super easy. It's a smaller hostel but big enough to where we could spread out some. I would definitely recommend it for groups of friends backpacking together but it's not really a hostel if you're looking to make...

I stayed here over the bank holiday weekend, it was so cheap for 3 nights - very basic but you get what you pay for! And the location of the hostel is perfect, very close to all the night life and you can easily walk into the central tourist area too. The hostel staff are very friendly and gave us...

The building looks run down and the lift is a relic, but the hostel itself looks new and very clean. Showers were great, way above Europe/hostels standards. Even though reception is not 24h, every time staff were there they were very helpful - one even gave me a ride to the train station. The location is great, walking distance to...
