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.

Liked: Good kitchen and lounge area and good social atmosphere.

Disliked: Double room was small and there was no fan or air conditioning. Airport transfer was expensive, the driver took us to the wrong hostel so we had to walk, and it didn't have working seatbelts.

Liked: This place is really close to the subway system so you can get around very easy. Most sights are about 10-20 min walk away. There are so many places in Budapest to stay at so it was hard for me to decide. I stayed in the 4 bedroom womens dorm and the room was decent. Beds were nice and comfy but not a lot of room to put your stuff.

Disliked: I was here in May and there were so few people staying here that they were going to close/move the remaining people somewhere else, but luckily more people made reservations so they stayed open. No breakfast included. No lockers for your bags.

Liked: A very good location with low price and clean environment, it is very near the metro station ferenciek tere (M3) and easily access to the popular places. Also, it just takes 10 mins walk to the Central cafe and the Elizabeth Bridge. The hostel is newly furnished and i feel like staying at home, with the friendly and helpful staff. if I visit Budapest next time, Base Budapest Hostel will be my first choice.

Liked: It had a foosball table, a large flat screen tv, free wifi and computers connected to the internet for the guests. Some (but not all) of the staff working there is very nice, friendly and helpful. They will happily provide information about budapest.

Disliked: The fact that there was only a shared bathroom. If you book the (2 person) room with a private bathroom you will get a shared bathroom which is on the main hallway. You can get a "private" bathroom, which is also more dirty that the shared one and farther from the main rooms, but only after specifically asking them about it when you arrive.
