Liked: There would have been great transport links outside the hostel if they had not dug the tram lines up.

Disliked: Most showers only had cold water, bathrooms/toilets without locks the one in our room did not close, dead moths splattered on the bedroom wall, mold covering one of the bathrooms, kitchen roll cut in half instead of loo roll.

Liked: The price, friendly staff and the wi-fi signal.

Disliked: I'm very surprised with the rating of this hostel. I've been travelling one month around Central Europe and this was by far the worst hostel. The reception is a garage... really grotty, no cleaning in the bathroom (Not even toilet paper, they gave me kitchen paper), absolutely no atmosphere, the location is bad, isn't a good district and the tram line is under construction (July 2014)...It was really hot and it was unbearable, In general I don't recommend this hotel but even less in summer! Not worth choose this one for the price, there are real hostels for paying 2€ more by night.

Liked: Location - near heroe's square. I could go everywhere on foot. Clean, with a little porch where you can drink coffee at the morning. There are also books in english to borrow :) Staff is friendly. And people there were amazing :)

Disliked: Because they have boilers, hot water was only at the evening. But for me is not a problem - especially after long, hot day :)

Liked: Cool people, chill & laid back. Full kitchen and good wifi, always a plus. Fairly clean. Even though only 1 out of 3 showers had hot water, it wasn't really an issue because I never had to wait for the shower or anything. The staff were really nice, although I think we really confused one of the girls who didn't speak much English. :)

Disliked: A bit further out of the city than indicated. Not the greatest area due to the construction that's going on, and it was a bit of a walk to the metro station. However, there is a 24 hr liquor store on the corner, so that comes in handy haha.

Liked: I stayed at the hostel only for one night, but I had a good time there. It is sure I will go back there when I will be in Hungary the next time. I got a lot of information about the city, the sights and the public transport. The city centre can be reached easy. There are many transport lines around the hostel. The City Park is behind the hostel where you can find the Zoo and the Széchenyi Bath. The staff was very kind and friendly, and the hostel was clean and comfortable. There you can find everything you need. It was a good choice of me to stay there:).

Disliked: absolutely nothing:)
