Liked: Without doubt the best and most unique hostel I've ever stayed at. I volunteered here through 'Workaway' in the summer of 2013 and had a great time - so much so that I came back recently to visit and stay again as a guest. The guests and staff usually all hang out together, so it's perfect if you're travelling alone. The location is a short walk away from all the sights/main ruin bars, and there are loads of other less well-known bars and restaurants nearby. The hostel has a dog and two cats, and the place really feels like a home away from home. You'll definitely want to come back - I did!

Disliked: Nothing!

Liked: We liked the location and the cats.Girl was welcoming when we arrived and showed us everything we might need to know in Budapest and made markings on the map for us.Bathrooms were always quite clean.

Disliked: The hostel is way too small for the amount of people who can stay here at once. This means that the kitchen (the only 'shared' area) becomes very crowded. Ie, you might be able to cook, but then there's nowhere to sit and eat. There was a couch and seating area in our room, which just encouraged people to drink and be loud within the bedroom as there is no where else really to go. There seemed to be about 5 workers there, and they would often spend their time in the kitchen area. The pillows were like small couch cushions - very uncomforable. People were always smoking and hanging out in the door way, making it difficult to get past.One of the staff had some kind of disagreement with a scruffy looking man (it was unclear whether he was a long-term resident or worker) - making everything feel uncomfortable.Some beds offered more privacy than others, although they were all priced the same - this is not very fair if you get assigned a poorly located bed.

Liked: Met really fun people, mostly the work away staff, to go out with in the evenings, a couple of drinks inevitably meant not getting home till gone 4. Relaxed atmosphere and nice decoration that made you feel at home. While we were there there was also a beer festival going on a couple of streets away making it a good location to be.

Disliked: The hangovers.
