Family Holiday

19 January 2014

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: Shocking hostels set up by foreigners trying to make some quick money. There was no heating whatsoever.....several people were sick and most people stayed up all night coughing and shivering in their sleep as the owners tried to save money and not put on the heating. No hot water in showers and knob did not work. Noisy lounge area which echoes to the rooms especially the one next to the main Reception room. Kitchen was dirty. I had to check out early and get a refund. The Manager gave me dirty looks as if to say, "why". There are so many fantastic hostels run by clean, friendly Hungarians. Stay there!

Liked: Great location, right in the centre. staff are very helpful, friendly and easy going. You are provided with dinner every night (if you like) for an extremly good price. The hostel also organise events for guests every night so there is always something going on. X hostel also has a really chilled vibe so if you do not feel like getting up to anything it is also a great place to relax.

Disliked: Honestly, unless you're very picky then I cannot really fault anything with X hostel.

Liked: This hostel has the best common room. It even has a swing! I loved staying at X Hostel because it was so easy to meet new people and have a blast going on activities together. Every day there is some fun activity planned (caving, party bath, pub crawls etc). They serve a delicious meal each evening (request the stuffed chicken!). The staff is great: Cam is the coolest!

Disliked: It really is a great hostel. Nothing to dislike.

Liked: Awesome location. The hostel is great if you wanna chill or party. they take you out every night and cook dinner for you for very cheap. You would never stay in your bed during the day as the common areas are super cozy and they make you feel like home. The swing is amazing and made me want one in my living room. X Hostel rules. Thanks for letting me be part of the family :)

Liked: Staff were very helpful, bed clean, the living area was used by everyone and had a great atmosphere.

Disliked: There seemed to be people who were friends of the workers who were there all the time and just slept on the sofa and the shower floors were often flooded but they were regularly mopped so could just have been having problems when we stayed.

Liked: The atmosphere at the hostel was amazing, it was relaxed and friendly but also really fun. The staff went above and beyond, organising events and making sure everyone knew the best places to go to experience the culture and the nightlife in Budapest. The manager Katie was always more then happy to offer advice and help, and Danny was great at getting the night started and organising the events. Me and my partner would definitely recommend!!
