I was directed to this hostel when the hostel I was staying in nearby (which was quite a nice place I must mention) could not extend my stay there, and how fortunate was this!! Casa is large hostel with all the usual hostel facilities as well as own bar! and large terrace!! Accomodation is very adequate, you have multiple stay options in differently decorated rooms. You have your clean room, own locker in the room, easy access to showers, wi-fi through whole building, comfortable reception with computers, kitchen you can use, bicycles available for rent, secuity code to get in to the building and secutiy cards to access rest of areas (security is important!), and other essentials you are looking for in a hostel. But what really makes this hostel stand out is its character and its friendly outgoing staff, and these two points make all the difference.
Large terrace is a nicely decorated place, with a bar which opens in the evening and plays nice music, and a small swimming pool (yes you can swim in it!!!!!) which makes it a perfect place to meet your fellow travellers and enthusiastic and interesting Hungarian staff. Hungarian guys who work there have a very easygoing and welcoming attitude, don't hold yourself back with questions about Budapest, Hungary, its culture, people, or any other topic really. You will meet a range of interesting characters who you will have no problem communicating with due to there outgoing attitude and great knowledge of English. Once you meet other travellers and Hungarian staff while having a beer at the terrace you will find yourself preparing for a great night out as Hungarian staff is able to recommend you a range of mainstream and alternative places to go out, and actually has no problem joining you, or bringing you along with them if they have a chance. The atmosphere is truly amazing. It's easy to see that the staff is not only doing their job, but also enjoys it very much.
What else can I say about the hostel? It's a very lively place as I already mentioned, which I loved of course. The terrace bar will shut at 10pm, by that time you will probably move to one of the city bars/clubs with other people staying at the hostel, but if you are having such a good time, or possibly still planning your night out, that you are still there at 10pm, well, make your way down to ground floor to a bar called Roham (you will see it when you will enter the building) which is open until late. It has inside and outside areas, friendly staff, live shows sometimes, etc. Casa is the perfect location to really have fun. Again query staff on locations, Budapest has a whole range of things going on, so I am sure you will find something for your taste, just don't be shy and speak to staff about your preferences and expectations. I am not going to go into detail about what Budapest has to offer as it has to offer very very much, just search for an article on it. So If you are up for an adventure in Budapest you must stay in Casa De La Musica.
