Liked: Both receptionists were lovely, kitchen well stocked and plenty of crockery. There is a 24 hour supermarket next door and a 1 minute walk to the metro station.

Disliked: You have to be carefully about noise because of proximity to rooms and other residents in the building that the hostel is located in. Unfortunately our booking was lost somehow and therefore we didn't have a room but everything was done to rectify this but still lead to a bit of a inconvenience. There are only 2 showers and toilets

Liked: Genuinely nice place in a beautiful location. The hostel is very homely and quite small, Clean, awesome staff, and great value for money. It is in a residential area with cafes and small restaurants and is definitely not a party hostel.

Disliked: The facilities are fairly limited: when it gets busy, there's only one small kitchen with a single stove, limited space for food, one small washing machine, and limited space for drying, etc.

Liked: Quiet, comfortable, safe and warm. Nice kitchen with lots of utensils and stuff you need to cook. The decor is really cute and it was easy to find our way home as the metro is close, but we could walk easily down the main roads too. Guy at staff means well, despite the language barrier. He washed and dried our clothes for us!

Disliked: The shower and bath aren't really hot, however the heaters are perhaps too hot in the rooms. There's no sign for the hostel on the street, you have to find it on the code thingy next to the doors. The staff can't really speak English, surprisingly... That can make conversations and negotiations a bit confusing and long.

Liked: This is one of the best hostels i've stayed in...and there have been a few! Hipster was clean and cozy with a very relaxed atmosphere. Staff were helpful and was nice to have clean facilities and a kitchen. Wifi worked which is always a surprise.

Disliked: Only problem was locating the hostel. A sign would be very helpful...

Liked: This hostel was amazing. Everyone we met there was so lovely, the staff were great, can't believe how great the rooms are for the price. The whole place was really bright, clean and cosy. The kitchen was very good so we were able to cook a lot which saves money. Honestly can't recommend this place enough.

Liked: The staff was very friendly and all facilities that a traveler might ask for are available. The hostel is right in the middle of the city centre but the courtyard offers a quiet but lively sport in the busy centre.

Disliked: Although the property had everything, I personally prefer the smaller, cozy hostels. The hostel offers a lot of room.

Liked: Feels like staying at a friends house with a bunch of awesome people! Met so many nice people here, booked another night cause we liked it so much

Disliked: Only one toilet and one bathroom plus a toilet and bath in one. It's not really a problem but on certain mornings you can wait quite a bit of time before the shower is available

Liked: this hostel is great! it's so nicely done and so welcoming and feels like one big shared flat. the staff great, very helpful and pleasant and the location is basically unbeatable. the street's atmosphere is very nice and lots of cheap (though very good) bars and restaurants are close.

Disliked: there's nothing about the hipster hostel to dislike, except the fact that it is actually quite hard to find. a sign would be good, for example.

Liked: The hostel looked great-we were mean to stay there in the double room but were overbooked so we had an apartment in the next street which was very spacious, but quite isolated as we would have liked to stay in the hostel as it was our first night.

Disliked: When we were checked in she couldn't get away quick enough. I suppose she was on her own but it would have been nice if we had a map! Also hard to find-there was no sign apart from on the tiny buzzer (we did not know it was within an apartment building). We barely even noticed the number 3 on the door of the building (and there were several shops with the same address). Would have been great if it was a bit more descriptive.

Liked: It's a very cosy apartment refurbished as a hostel as are many hostels in Budapest. The rooms are very stylish and creatively decorated, it feels quite hipster just being there. Most importantly, staff is around 24h and very kind and helpful.

Disliked: Some misalignment of reservations had us change rooms (although we had booked 2 nights only). Better contact them directly, they do speak English.

Liked: The location was perfect, only 3 minutes walk from Kalvin ter Station. Very clean, and the bathroom was clean and dry at all times, except some busy morning when most people getting up. The staffs were very helpful, there was a night when a lady in my room snored really loud, the staff went out next morning and got everyone of us an ear plug. Thanks so much.

Disliked: Nothing much, everything's perfect
