Positive Reviews

Extremely central location

This hostel is located very centrally in Budapest, within walking distance of dozens of attractions, bars, restaurants and shops. The prime location is a large factor for hundreds of guests staying with the property who regularly state this is why they chose this hostel over others.

Friendly and welcoming staff

Staff of this property are repeatedly thanked for their welcoming and friendly personalities, helping to create an excellent atmosphere within the hostel. Guests mention staff kindness in assisting with a variety of issues including helping to arrange local tours and providing excellent tips and suggestions for the city.

Good free Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi is offered across this hostel, not just in the communal areas. Guests regularly praise the quality and reliability of the Wi-Fi as well as its range and coverage. Having free Wi-Fi is an aspect that many travellers value highly and thus it is mentioned regularly as a big positive of this property.

Negative Reviews

Off-site apartments

Certain apartments offered by this hostel are not located on the same site as the main building, sometimes up to a five minute walk away. Many guests comment on this being misleading and do not like having to commute back to the main building to use certain facilities.

Difficult to initially locate

Multiple guests mention the hostel to be difficult to initially locate due to a lack of signs. Reviews suggest some more signs would assist in the future and would avoid guests having to telephone the hostel for assistance.

Crowded kitchen

The communal kitchen offered by the hostel for guest use is often described as being overly crowded and thus difficult to utilise. Guests state that this is particularly an issue in the mornings during the free breakfast, when it can be impossible to get into the kitchen.
