There were salads and sushi were poor quality. The worst in Budapest. A very low level. No professional products. And the waiters are not nice. They bring you the dessert. And only after 20 minutes comes the tea.But the service took full

I am writing what it will likely be the last review of a hostel. Why? Because these guys made me realize I should NEVER book a private room in a hostel again. NEVER! We made the reservation via an online booking site (I've been using for 5 years) I have never had problems with...before. We confirmed our arrival a day...

The hostel is situated within walking distance to most of Budapest's attractions. Public transport is within a minutes' walk. The hostel is clean and the staff was kind and helpful. For the price you pay, I don't think you can ask for anything more. The mattresses were good and the bed linen clean. The cozy atmosphere of the hostel ensures...

Place is cheap for a stay if you are looking for hostels. This is located in the city as well, so almost every attraction is in walkable distance. The staff is friendly and supportive. Highly recommended.

I personally had a very interesting stay at the hostel, although some of the things that happened were not the hostels fault. The people in our room clearly did not understand hostel etiquette and t all hours of the night would turn on the lights and talk at full volume. We had one man come into our room and say...

Considering I paid €7.49 which included breakfast I wasn't expecting much. It's a very basic hostel. Bathroom and toilets are in a separate room. It took me a while to find the entrance. The entrance is next door to a restaurant which has the word "Bufe" on a big white sign.

I'm rating the dorm section of the hostel, since there seems to be a separate part of the hostel accommodating the private rooms that might be better. tl;dr: (Pros) very central and good neighborhood, 24h reception, helpful stuff, free coffee all day long, basic breakfast included (Cons) cramped, not so clean, messy and tiny bathrooms, noisy (without earplugs) Our arrival...

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.

“If you are going in low season, there is a chance that the hostel is not very crowded and you can stay alone (or only 4 people as it was in my case) in a room for six (which is, of course, cheaper)”
