Cold!! No heaters, tall ceiling, and old building make for a cold hostel! Also, if it's not clear from the description, this is like a 5-bedroom apartment, so don't expect to see another person during your stay.

There are many downsides that we weren't expecting at all from the very high rating of the hostel. People were sleeping every night in the couch in the hall of the hostel, leaving luggages, shoes and clothes on the way, it was difficult to walk through and we couldn't talk in the common area, afraid to wake them up.

The location is just perfect, everything is very near, the area provides all kinds of entartainment. It felt like we were staying with old friends rather then in a hostel, the stuff is very helpful, we appreciated tips about where to go and what to see. Highly recommended! Clean, safe and friendly place to stay. I absolutely loved our little...

Very good, very clean, and also very nice beds. We had some good nights there and we enjoyed it to the fullest. It had what we needed, and there were social activities almost every day. We loved it here - cheap and also very nice.

The hostel is in a big, old apartment, but provides quiet, clean and nice rooms. There are two bathrooms/toilets and comfortable, well equipped kitchen. The staff is friendly, helpful, speaks excellent English and offers very useful advice on sightseeing, eating, entertainment etc. The hostel is also very well located (close to subway, Gellert hegy and market hall). Very good price...
