Good value for money - calm stay in good location
Overall we had a good stay here - the apartment was bigger than I'd imagined and had everything we needed (including a kettle, fridge etc.). It was a good value for the price, was refreshingly calm (not at all a party hostel, of which there seem to be many in Budapest), and had more space than expected. This said, a few things were less than ideal: the bed pillows were very small and thin, the two doors you had to lock from within (and unlock with the key to get out) were very difficult to deal with, and a few days before our stay we received an email saying the reception would close at 4 pm and if we arrived later they would have to send us self check-in information - we ended up taking an earlier train and arriving before 4, which was good since I think the self check-in would have been very confusing. So be careful to check what the reception hours are before planning your arrival. But other than that we had no problems.

Very good value for money.
The staff at the hostel were very friendly and always tried to be helpful. The room was very spacious and very clean. It appeared to be renovated quite recently. In terms of negatives, the place was slightly difficult to find and once found there were many flights of stairs which made it difficult. While the facilities were modern and the rooms were comfortable it was a particularly hot time of year and the air conditioning wasnt very effective which made sleeping a bit difficult. Otherwise it was certainly good value for money for the room.

8/10 Very good

The hostel is located very close to public transport, supermarkets and restaurants. The staff was helpful and friendly. We stayed in the room on the first floor which had no reception and only a very small kitchen area, this made it really hard to meet people. Also, they do not offer free luggage storage, so if you need to leave your bags before checkin or after checkout be prepared to pay for it. The room was a bit on the smaller side which is something I expect from staying in the city centre. The shower and toilets were very good and clean all the time.

Lovely hostel in center
This is a great hostel for those who want to stay central but not with all the big partiers. It was clean and quiet. Beds are comfortable. The only complaint is that there was no fan at all in the room. The windows can open to the street but it can be very noisy.
