Me and my boyfriend stayed here. We had clear instructions of how to get into the hostel, and were really impressed and happy with the location. Right on one of the main restaurant roads of Budapest with lots of lovely restaurants and bars to choose from! Only a few minutes walk from the metro as well. The hostel is definitely...

Three of us were here for two nights. We were slightly unsettled walking in to the place, but it turned out to be great. We had a 4 bed room to ourselves which was 4 euro a night per person. Free basic breakfast and free washing was included. The rooms were HUGE which after a few weeks of travel in...

The pictures in here don't make justice to the real thing. I remember the nice old building with a garden in the center, the homely kitchen, my bedroom with the painted walls and the view down to the street. It was refreshing to have a bathroom as big as that one, and I didn't even have to wait long before...

This is definitely the cheapest hostel where i have been. 3€ for one night in a four mixed bed with bathroom on the floor. Do not expect an ordinary hostel, in fact literally there's no staff welcoming you, that's the way the owner keeps such low prices. Basically he gives you the security code to open the door and leave...

Ok, let me start by saying the only good thing about the place is the owner. He's friendly. It stops there. The cleaning lady cleans from 8am-11am in the morning, so you cant shower until noon unless you get up early. She then makes you feel uncomfortable by staring you down and acting like you shouldn't be there. There is...

The mattresses are about an inch thick. Correcting the boxes checked on Hostelworld, there is no receptionist, just a grouchy German hippie, who may or may not be there. There is no 24 hour security. The shower may or may not be hot. There is no restaurant, no cafe, no airport transfer, no bicycle hire or parking, no meeting room,...

It's in the heart of Raday utca. Just down the street from so many restaurants, joints, shops, grocery, food cart pods...whatever you're looking for. Just step out and head in either direction. If you're traveling on the cheap, or just want to stay with a more local flavor than a hotel, check this place out. You'll enjoy your stay.

Service was nice and helpful with guides and tips how to manage in the city and it was on time with all informations and responds to our queries. It's not noisy. And is mostly clean, only things I haven't found clean were cutlery. I...

A great hostel. As a couple we wanted a well located, easy going atmosphere. George, the owner, was great in supplying the latter and was to date one of the best accommodation owners we have come across. Great security and free washing facilities make it the ideal hostel! 10/10
