6/10 Good

Very basic, cheap accommodation at a great location. Very convenient to/from the airport. The 100E bus from the airport stops almost in front of the building. Phone or doorbell kept ringing early dawn with nobody at the reception desk and I could hear it in our room, even though it was far away. Then some construction or repair work started early morning when they were drilling the walls or something. Impossible to sleep.

Basic but absolutely everything you need!
A- a great location, a 10 minute walk from the city centre; B- basic but met our needs for a 2 night stay S- small, furniture needed moving in order to get into bathroom; O- overall, reasonably clean (bathroom, communal spaces etc); L- loud to the early hours but to be expected with location; U- unclear signage to access the hostel; T- the location is great and makes the rest worthwhile

The day before I arrived I received a nice welcoming message which was very nice! I personally struggled to get into the building but there’s usually people going in and out so I didn’t wait for too long. The accommodation was in a perfect location! Very close to the shuttle bus stop and is a great place to start wondering around! Inside the hostel was very nice! They can provide you with a lock and key and towels if you require all free of charge! My bed was super comfortable however there was a slight stain on the bedding ( either pen or blood but I’m pretty sure the bedding was washed and it was just a stain so it didn’t bother me at all!) super friendly staff and lovely people looking to have fun! Would definitely come back! The receptionist helped me locate the bus stop and a few other bits, so friendly!

Not what the doctor ordered
Probably stupid to stay in a shared dorm during the pandemic and one of my unmasked roommates in the 6 bed dorm was coughing up a storm all night. It doesn’t help that management doesn’t enforce mask mandates. But the location is prime, the rate is low, and it is kept clean. Receptionists here have the usual tendency to disappear so bring your own towel. But the place is clean, centrally located, and well priced.

6/10 Good

Pros: Clean room w/ private bath. Great location, easy 15 min walk to the Danube. Airport Bus 100E and Deàk Ferenc metro station is less than 1 block away. Cons: Room is right above a busy street with heavy foot traffic. Very loud when windows are open. Much better with windows closed and AC on. STAFF: the 2 guys that work in the morning are quite friendly and helpful. The lady that works the late afternoon shift until close (9pm) was quite rude to me and 3 of my roommates; she does not smile or greet when you arrive/come up to the front desk to ask a question. I asked her to to turn on the AC in our room and she looked at me and didn't say a word or acknowledge me. I walked away to fill my water bottle in the kitchen (directly I'm front of the front desk) and went back to my room. She then comes into our room with a rude tone of voice asking why didn't I get the remote at the front desk (as if it had been too much trouble for her to come to our room). I said, I didn't even know there would be a remote, I thought it was a switch you had to turn on at the front desk. So I told her in front of my roommates "you know, you are being rude, you never greet any of us, you never smile, and your tone of voice is always angry" she said "you can file a complaint or write a bad review, I don't care!" She also told my roommate "this is not a 5 star hotel!". People like her need to find a job outside of the hospitality business, very sad! Because of this, I would not return.
