"Staff were awesome. Margret Sziget is romantic and lovely. The hostel was small and cosy with a reat roof to sit and chill on."

Liked: has a great outside area, it was perfect for post sziget recovery.

Disliked: the staff kept locking the doors, front door and dorm room door. and they were the only people with keys. and sometimes asleep, or not actually in the hostel! So we were left standing outside the hostel or unable to get into our room for a long time!

Liked: Kitchen facilities were great! Computer and TV were good as well.

Disliked: Not getting keys to our own rooms. I was in a 8 bed mixed dorm with private bathroom and did not receive a key, the receptionist said "we only give keys to private rooms". Some staff members weren't the most helpful and some barely spoke English.

Liked: Staff were awesome. Margret Sziget is romantic and lovely. The hostel was small and cosy with a reat roof to sit and chill on.

Disliked: A little difficult to find. No air conditioning when it was 39 degrees was very difficult to handle - one fan just blowing round warm air. There is a nightclub come pub at the bottom of the hostel which blairs out lous music ona saturday night and you had to sleep with the doors open cos it was so hot. I dont know if it was an infestation but there were literally thousands of little fruit flies all over light fistures and fittings and when you woke up in the morning there was dead flies everywhere.

Liked: Perfect place for wandering around in Budapest. Pretty close to the tram and other transport, nice park surrounding the hostel and feels quite safe. Nice big balcony on the second floor. However, the best thing is the staff. They are very helpful and interesting people, you can easily spend hours chatting about everything between heaven and earth if that's your thing. I enjoyed my time greatly.

Disliked: Can be noisy during nights, if there's a party downstairs. During the summer parts of the park are ridden with small flying bugs which might be nuisance if the windows are left open.

Liked: Location on Margitsziget was pretty nice- very green, good views and a fairly short walk into the city centre. Most of the staff were friendly and the hostel overall was clean.

Disliked: Manager was very unhelpful and rude when I called to ask for directions to the hostel. More importantly, due to the worrying lack of guests, there was absolutely no atmosphere or social life to be found at the hostel- my friend and I were the only guests for the majority of our stay. Also we were not given a key to our room. The only key was kept, at all times, by the receptionist, which wasn't ideal.

Liked: The hostel is in an island and it is very beautiful there, although is not very close to the city center. The staff is almost always very nice and helpful and the facilities are very good.

Disliked: The place is a bit durty and as we stayed in the new years eve there were other gests that were partying in the commom area of the hostel which was very close to the rooms. The staff didn't show much effort to make these guests to keep the volume down and they didn't have any rule about noise there. The result was that they had loud music way after midnight and around dawn they started screaming and making a lot of noise, so sleeping during the night is not an option there.

Liked: The location was great, if out of the way, but perfect for sunny days and the kitchen was really well equipped.

Disliked: The rooms were too cluttered, perhaps too many bed squeezed into the room. It would have been nice if the beds were pre-allocated so that me and my spouse weren't on opposite sides of the room.

Liked: Das Personal war extrem freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir haben aus versehen das falsche Datum gebucht und waren eine Woche zu früh dort, aber es war kein Problem trotzdem ein anderes Zimmer zu bekommen. Außerdem waren sie sehr hilfsbereit was das Finden von zB guten lokalen Restaurants betrifft. Der Aufenthaltsraum war wie dafür geschaffen anderen Reisende kennen zu lernen. Die Küche war für ein Hostel auch sehr gut ausgestattet. Es gibt eine Terrasse mit Blick auf die Donau...

Disliked: Den ein oder anderen könnte es stören, dass man die Zimmer nicht mit einem eigenen Schlüssel verschließen kann. Allerdings ist rund um die Uhr jemand vom Personal im Hostel und es gibt eigene Locker.
