Liked: Stayed for one night, quite hard to find as is on a small estate out of town so pack a map with directions! Once there the owner was fantastic so more than made up for the difficulties finding the place. Had a few issues with late night transport back to the hostel so had to get a taxi. Would stay again though. Good links to airport.

Disliked: Only the location.

Liked: The host is very kind, friendly and helpful! The hostel is like a big house in a houses neighbourhood, so it's relaxing (as the name sais it). Extra: I got apricots from the tree at front door! About location, there is good access to/from the city center by bus or train. Also being relatively close to the airport, you can get there in about 20 minutes by bus. Definitely recommend, thanks!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: The woman is sooo friendly. The hostel is really a house, so you feel like youre at home, and she has a lot to say about any questions you have. Shes really helpful, and even gave me lunch made from vegetables from her garden! And some wine when I was watching a movie there.

Disliked: Everything was good. Bit far from the centre but easy enough to catch the train/metro in.

Liked: This charming and cozy hostel is located in a residential area, about 30 minutes by transit outside of central Budapest. It's quiet and pleasant, and Agnes is a very helpful hostess. She was always ready with lots of great tips for checking out the city.

Disliked: Nothing- it was excellent.

Liked: The staff was really nice and helpful!

Disliked: If I have to mention something, the hostel is located quite far away from the centre of the city, but that's also not a real problem since it's close to the airport and the public transport connections are really good.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: Located in one of the worst districts of Budapest, the place is not very accessible. Description says 15mts away from city, but is not quite...you have to walk a kilometer for the bus and then wait for half hour for it to arrive. Facilities are basic. Not very clean. It is cheap, but more than makes up for it in drama. At first the owner seems okay, friendly but you can see the crazy in her eyes. Best avoided.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: The photos are photoshopped with red filters to make the rooms look better than they are. The description of distance from Budapest and hostel location is misleading...it's a 20min walk to the train along a busy highway in a derelict neighbourhood. The train may take 20mins but only runs every 30 mins and less after 9pm, and not between midnight and 3am, so you will be stranded or forced to take a long nightbus back. The bathrooms were clean but the private double was not - loads of dust under the bed had never been cleaned! The "double" bed was also not one - it was an old 70s sofa bed (barely 3/4 size) with a thin layer of foam on top, really uncomfortable for two adults! All of this really exacerbated my fiance's hay fever and it was a horrible nights sleep. Agi's heart is in the right place but as independent travellers we found her a bit full on...a lot like staying at your grandma's house, with her constantly keeping track of your movements and always asking if she can help. Also didn't like that we could hear her talking about us to other guests while we were in our room! Needless to say, we decided to leave this hostel a day earlier than intended to move closer to the city for the weekend because it was ruining our experience. Budapest is an amazing city with many cheap and awesome hostels much much closer to the action so don't waste your time and money with this place!

Liked: Extremely kindness of the owner. She took the time to show me the way to the airport and to have a great and warm chat for a very nice Sunday. So interesting to know her better and all the experiences she had traveling... Beds are comfy and warm. Toilets clean. Location for me was great since next morning I had to leave to the airport, and it took me only 18 minutes from there!

Disliked: Nothing. Had a great time!
