best part of the hostel - bar! its open 24/7 and they have good beer, suprisingly extreme cheap (0.5l = about 1eur). friendly stuff, allways there to help you and make a great coffee for good morning. little thing makes great everything :)
Genearally it was ok, the two things that I would change are loundry - it dryies in a common room, which has no windows, no natural light, ventialation, both the sheets, towels and the common room itself smell mustiness, u could at least open widow if possible otherwise u should have a drying machine. Second thing is curtains- ours were white and the street lamp was really strong, so we had a a lot of light in the room. Bathrooms were ok, beds too, well equipped kitchen.
Although it is not really close to the dowtown it is easy to get from the tube station, the two girls in the reception were absolutely amazing, that's the kind of service you hope to have on those places, we loved this hostel, they were completely helpful and the breakfast was really good an cheap
+ Extremely helpful and friendly staff + Bathrooms and rooms are clean + Enough of plugs in the room, about 2 per person - The bar looks shady, and smells bad - Noisy as hell - Impossible to lock a room door. It doesn't even have a lock - No plugs in bathrooms. Do you have electric razor? Bad luck - No coat hangers in rooms. You have to either stuff your coat into a locker, or leave it on chair if it is wet or too big - No mirrors in rooms
Excellent, quiet location close to metro and very central. Had some trouble with a heating that wasn't working which got fixed straight away after telling reception, so they are quick in reacting to troubles. Very friendly and welcoming. Clean room and bathroom. We would definitely recommend it is you are looking for good value for your money.
HoBar wasn't exactly a party bar, but we none the less enjoyed our stay. The location is okay. We didn't want to buy a metro pass, so the sights were a little longer to walk to. Staff was friendly and helpful, but not superb. We stayed in a 10-Bed mixed with ensuite bathroom. The bathroom floor was dirty, and had no soap or paper towels. The bar part was a more casual atmosphere, not really party. It was a good value, for the fact that we really didn't spend much time at the hostel.
My first Hostel in Europe in Budapest !!!!!
I stayed in this Hostel on 15 August 2015 in a 6 bed Mixed dorm. The rooms were clean and nice and the hostel has a nice Bar cum Restaurant. The girl in the bar I forgot her name was very polite and ready to help the guests with maps and information. My other friend got a bed in another 4 bed mixed dorm and it was ok. The Bathrooms were common and clean.
Other travellers were so careful not to disturb others that even changed clothes outside trying not to disturb others at night. Since it was my first experience in a hostel in Europe, I also took care of others and even packed my bag outside.Metro station is nearby and very nice restaurants are on the street serving great cuisine.
The currency in Budapest was not Euro or Dollar, but Hungarian currency HUF has to be used everywhere.
We even went to a Night Club behind the street and it was very decent and not trying to extract money. We had few drink and enjoyed talking to the girls there.
We stayed one night in a private ensuite room. The communal areas of this hostel are nice, as is the bar. The bathroom was not very clean however - there was a used towel with hair on it behind the bathroom door and the shower looked like it needed a good scrub. The bed was uncomfortable as the mattress was thin and you could feel the wooden slats on your back. For the price we paid however we cannot expect luxury!
We only stayed here for one night, but we were pleasantly surprized. It was me, my husband and our 5 year old son. We had 2 beds in a 8 bed dorm. The room was clean, and so was the bathroom, which was in the room, not the hallway. But the best thing is the location, it is right in the center, so you don't need to take any means of transportation to start visiting. And of course the money, which is very good. I already recommended it to some friends.
Liked: Stayed only one night. Good first impression. Not to buSy. Nice bar area.
Disliked: So noisy!!!! Stayed a saturday night. When i left for the airport 7.30 next morning music was still on very loud!!
