Liked: Clean, modern, spacious!

Disliked: Considering how much space there was in the huge social areas - we were unable to leave our bags in the hostel on the day we were checking out even though we were not actually leaving budapest until the evening. It was a good job we had friends in other hostels who were happy to hold our bags for us othersie we would have been pretty stuck!

Liked: Great location, lovely facilities, really nice staff

Disliked: Had to have the window open because it was so hot, but there were roadworks outside all through the night on Friday so didn't get any sleep because of the noise

Liked: The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. The location was great and only a short walk from the metro and bus stops. The overall atmosphere of the hostel was wonderful and very social. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone traveling to Budapest, especially those who are traveling alone.

Liked: The common area was nice and the staff were great and helpful.

Disliked: The men's toilet and shower were nice, newly rebuilt and clean but the girls with me were complaining about the women's toilets and showers not being so clean and nice. + There were no mirrors nor any trash bins inside the rooms and our room was very small and the lower section of the bunker beds were so short in height that it was hard to sit on and was just basically good enough for sleeping. The room itself was very cold but the blankets were nice and warm.
