Liked: It was the cheapest option for one night in Budapest at the moment. Literally a unique experience.

Disliked: Terrible atmosphere. Difficult to find, when you press the right bell, you are welcomed by a staff member (who was actually welcoming) behind a glass covered in sheets with rules, some of which are common sense, but make you feel insecure because your deposit is at a stake at every moment; others are just paranoid like a ban on 'political discussion'. Walls are decorated with unnerving paintings. Cameras everywhere, even in the bathrooms where you can see posts reminding you: 'Smile! You are being watched :)'. Communal showers (no problem with that) that include fans facing the showers 'to keep you fresh'. Eerie. If you adere to the rules, you can have a quiet stay there, but in my experience it's difficult to feel at ease.

Liked: Spacious clean rooms. The hostel is easy to access any time from the street by pressing a code at the doorbell.

Disliked: not very well marked the main entrance of the hostel, esp. when travelling there at night - would be better to locate a visible indication sign in front of the building or at the middle part of the door in the level of eyes. Weird showers, you need constantly press a button for the water to pump
