Helpful Staff

The staff at the hostel rated highly amongst a number of guest reviewers with many saying that the introduction to Budapest and the orientation provided by the staff was very helpful.

Value for Money

A number of visitors to the hostel commented that it did not feel like a hostel at all and that it was great value for money. Some also mentioned the excellent security in their rooms which made them feel safe during their stay in Budapest.

Negative Reviews

A Little Cold

Some guests who feel the cold were not at all happy with the level of heating in the dorm style accommodation which cannot be adjusted.  These guests did not leave positive reviews as their stay was disrupted because they were cold.

Limited Privacy

Some people who were travelling as a couple commented that there was a general lack of privacy in the big rooms and on the balconies which they made negative comments about. Some visitors also felt that there was a lack of sound-proofing between the rooms and were disappointed they could hear their neighbours every move.

Some Construction Noise

Some visitors to the hostel had the unfortunate timing to visit when other properties within its vicinity were being renovated and had their stay disrupted by construction works which they comments would have been useful to know prior to booking.
