Generally not clean but reception was helpful
Honestly, overall the cleanliness of hostel was poor. Many comments about bed bugs which I was afraid of, and having stayed there for 4 nights I can confirm it is true. The sheets and duvet covers are not clean and I did get bitten from it. Thankfully it wasn't as bad as I had it many years ago. Generally, if you walk around the property it does not give you a sense of hygiene and cleaniness. Although reception was polite and helpful, easy to talk to which is the positive feedback I would be happy to give.

Its Okay
I booked a double room since I travel with my daughter and I don’t want to share room with other people. Room was spacious enough, with the basics: 2 twin beds, a cabinet to be used as closet, small desk with 2 chairs and big enough shower. It’s true that no towels are provided and if you need you have to pay 5 euros per each. Each floor has a fully equipped kitchen that you share with the rest of the guests in the same floor. Breakfast is good enough (boiled eggs, bread, coffee, oats, cereal, milk, cucumbers and tomatoes), each person has to wash their own plate/bowl/glass. The building is old and cold, elevator is so old fashion, but it’s entertaining to live the experience. The location is great, in Pest, where you can easily walk pretty much everywhere, prepare for long walks. All around the hostel is alive, lots of restaurants, boutiques, coffee shops, etc. It’s a safe neighborhood. Easy access to tram and metro and very easy to arrive from the airport. Recommended por a couple of days

Total disappointment. Towels and bedding is not free. Towel alone costs 5 euros. Breakfast is mediocre. Rooms are the size of rat cages with 6 bunk beds… Old falling building from Stalin era… dirty and unsafe.
