Steve Philadelphia, USA I was a little nervous never having traveled alone before but my stay at the Aboriginal made my first days very easy. The outside of the building is nothing special but once inside there is great detail on the walls and in all of the rooms. The staff are very friendly and willing to help with anything...

First off, the staff at this hostel is top notch. They are extremely helpful and friendly and made our stay a pleasant one. The location is great, the hostel is small and cozy, and the breakfast and events were good. That said, there are bedbugs. I'm not currently backpacking. I'm an exchange student who went on a weekend trip to...

I didn't actually end up staying here, because after finally finding it, setting down my stuff, and staring around in horror at the disgusting surroundings, I looked down and saw a bedbug. I grabbed my stuff, told my boyfriend we were leaving and got out of there as fast as my legs would carry me. The website for this place...

We arrived at the Hostel just a day after booking it. The Hostel is hidden in a residential building and a little tough to find if it's your first time to Budapest. The staff was very nice and accomodating. The night we stayed there, the staff made a traditional Hungarian meal and shared it with everyone who was staying there....

The hostel is spotlessly clean with a cozy Australian-themed design. There is a lot of free stuff included in the price like free wifi, free breakfast, free laundry, and more. The location is good -- about 1 block to the tram. Highly recommended for backpackers...

I had an enjoyable stay at this hostel. It's basically an apartment with a small common room and some dorm rooms leading off of it. I was one of those unfortunate travellers whose airline lost their luggage. I was not best pleased. Luckily for me, the staff are used to this and took charge of everything. Within 24hrs I had...

I stayed here with a friend as we were backpacking Eastern Europe in August of '06. This is the worst hostel I've ever stayed in. We ended up not paying for our nights stay as we took photos of the condition of our room and sent them to Hostelworld.com where we booked through. You can't argue with photos! Basically the...

This hostel was DISGUSTING. There were bed bugs, no hot water (even in the sinks), the receptionists were rude, overcharged us and screwed up our reservations. Security was terrible-some of our stuff got stolen, the sheets were disgusting, the only mirrors were next to the washer and in the toilet stalls so to use one you had to stand on...

“Try the apartments! They are excellent and not that expensive if you share cost with a travel buddy.”

“The 6 bed dorm was my only option when I first checked in, but I continued to stay in this room, with a balcony overlooking a quite back street. Lockers are quite large and roomy.”
