Myself and a friend booked a private twin room with ensuite for two nights in February. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly female member of staff who was very helpful. My friend had managed to leave her phone in the taxi to the hostel, and as the hostel had arranged the transfer for it she immediately phoned the...

The place is pretty difficult to find but they send you a very detailed email with pretty specific instructions (good on them!) The staff I encountered were also lovely and wanted to help and were very friendly. It was strange though that they asked you to take your shoes off- and just that slight inconvenience in a hostel (considering you...

We stayed there for 5 days. The hostel was really nice, clean and very friendly. The shared bathrooms were very clean. It could get crowded in "rush hour" in the morning. I liked the fact that you leave your shoes when entering the hostel and they provide you slippers, gives you a cozy feeling. I would definitely stay there again!

We booked a private double ensuite room, and it turned out to be an awesome studio apartment! Although it's not located with the main premise along Terez ut, it's just 5-10mins away along Andrassy ut, between Opera & Bajcsy-Szilinscky metro. Eventually our stay turned out to be such a comfortable week for us to recuperate from a month on the...

Very helpful staff with finding things to do in the area. VERY clean, very new. If you are looking for a party hostel this place isn't for you (there are TONS of those in the area). The place is decentralized, split up among a few different floors. That is good though and I appreciated how it was quite. Our first...

We stayed here for 6 nights, we found the staff to be pleasant and were delighted that it was warm in the hostel. Our room was not to the standard of others and had a constant, unpleasant smoky smell to it. There was cigarette ash on the window (both i and my boyfriend do not smoke).Shared bathrooms were clean and...

This was my first hostel experience and I loved it! I was a little scared that my husband and I would not be comfortable in a hostel, but Friends was perfect. This place would be great for singles or for couples which is really cool! Everything was clean and in great condition. The rooms were nice and the common areas...

Stayed here for four nights in Budapest and had a lovely stay. Great location in the city - you can get the bus, metro, trains or walk anywhere from here. Great trendy, well-designed, modern but cozy apartment atmosphere. Full kitchen with everything you could need to cook. Really friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable and clean hostel. Very good wifi. Definitely...

We stayed here for 3 nights in a private room with a shared bathroom and shower room and a kitchen. I actually preferred sharing a bathroom as had a choice of a shower or the large bath and there was a proper hairdryer / straighteners in there. Our room was very large and clean with hight ceilings, it's in an...

Can't fault this hostel, lovely atmosphere we visited last year in the summer. They didn't seem to mind when we girls had a drink or two in the communal area. We ended up meeting others from our hometown Yorkshire. The location is just a stones throwaway from the city centre and nightlife. There are TV facilities and the place is...

“The room you have is likely dependent on how many are in your party. The facilities were clean, the location is fabulous, that bathrooms, common area and kitchen are shared, but more than adequate... and they offer rental bikes on property, which is a very nice feature as Budapest is bicycle friendly... but the most important asset of this facility if the FRIENDLY HELPFUL STAFF!!”
