Liked: Nice building, balcony and gardens, Staff really friendly (when available).

Disliked: Nothing terrible at all, just a few quibbles... There is something VERY strange about this hostel... I'm not sure if it's good or bad, but the lack of staff (only there for 1/2 hours per day) makes it somewhat over accessible to anybody with the code, I'm almost certain some of the hairy drinkers stumbling around were not actually official guests... They simply refolded their sheets in the morning and left before the staff arrived... thus making this an excellent choice for free accommodation! We made sure everything was in the lockers and didn't have any real problems, Very very lacking atmosphere, no people mingling to meet, the only other person in the hostel screamed and jumped out of the kitchen when I said hello... Only contact for staff is an email address... Seemed quite impersonal.

Liked: It is in the city center, close to one of the famous clubs in BP, but despite that the hostel was really calm and peaceful, and you really can take a rest, and feel enough comfortable.

Disliked: Nothing, taking into mind that the hostel is a brand new place. In the near future, they can put a common computer, which can be really useful for the guest traveling without.

Liked: Spacious dormitory. Its a quiet place situated in a block of fairly high class flats and only ten minutes walk from the metro station linking to the bus station. It is also right in the middle of the atmospheric old Jewish quarter. A perfect friendly place to stay for seeing all the sights of central Budapest.

Disliked: The lack of a round the clock reception but it is only a small hostel and the security seemed pretty good.

Liked: It's spacious, has wifi and location is great, price is cheap too.

Disliked: I wish that the tax was included in the price. When I got there and had to pay more I was a little put off, but it wasn't a lot more anyways, but I think this should be included in the final price.

Liked: It was clean, warm water and heating was ok, beds were ok(normal madrasses, boards as suporters), decoration of the whole hostel was tastefull and ok.

Disliked: Mostly and mainly: The stuff man. He wanted to charge me extra (though simbolicaly, 300 HUF) for "extra fee for tourists" (I managed not to pay that by insisting that it doesn't fit with directions I'd got from Hostelworld), his attitude was somewhat nonchalant and unmatchure, the kitchen was very badly equiped (no sugar, no decent pots for making food at all, no dish brush, no dish dryer) and when I asked about the sugar he replied that he didn't use it.

Liked: It was a really nice hostel. The manager was very friendly and social!! There was a kitschen where you could borrow stuff to cook. The rooms were nice and you had an own locker where you could lock in your stuff. It was easy to get in, you got a code and then a key to get in to the hostel. The location was good, fairly close to Deák, and just off the bar street.

Disliked: It was a little hard to find at first but just go to the right adress and number and you will find it!!

Liked: This small hostel is located in the heart of the Jewish Quarter, surrounded by lots of small cafes, bars and restaurants. The Danube is only a 20 minute walk and it's about 8 mins to the Opera metro station. The hostel appears to be quite new. Everything is spotlessly clean, the beds are comfortable, the wifi is very good and the building is very secure. Very good value for money

Disliked: When we arrived it was 38 degrees and the hostel has no air con which may not be a problem for those more accustomed to warmer climates! This meant we had to have the windows open all night and. The street can be quite noisy but as long as you have a pair of earplugs it's not an issue.

23 July 2013 ZHOU would recommend this property

Liked: It is really a house-based hostel, so not a lot of rooms, not a lot of people which make it a quite place to stay after travelling. The location is really in the center and easy access to attractions and supermarkets. Facilities are quite basic, but I think it is enough for a few days of stay. And compared with the price, I think it is worth the money anyway.

Disliked: The rooms are quiet itself, but it's on the small streets with pubs, music on, people chatting and motorcycle all night. So it is a bit noisy, unless you close the window, but then you will feel a bit hot inside during the summer time. The staff has limited hour of access, so make sure you tell them the time of check in and also the time of check out!

Disliked: 特にはないですが、あえて言うなら、少し見付けにくい場所にあることと、シャワールームの水捌けが少し悪いことです。

Liked: The hostel's rigorous adherence to an "Aryans only" policy was both progressive and refreshingly brave. The mammoth amounts of pubic hair that decorated the shower plug hole were arranged in a very tasteful manner.

Disliked: We were greeted at the door by the hostel owner, Steve. I was immediately disconcerted by the fact that he was topless. He acted as if it was normal though so we all ignored it. When laying out the ground rules, he said something like "If you wake up in the middle of the night and you feel like there's a figure of roughly my height and build hovering over you breathing heavily, go back to sleep. You are having a dream". When I pushed him on this he merely told me to be quiet and mentioned something about 'pending court cases'. I found this somewhat odd. He also said that to save on carbon dioxide emissions, there were no beds and instead we had to sleep in vats of organic vegetable oil. This was quite uncomfortable, but thankfully only one of my friends actually drowned.

Liked: The staff was very nice and helpful. The location was in downtown Budapest very close to all the points of interest, such as touristic attractions, restaurants, pubs and public transportation spots. The value for money was really good compared to the other Budapest hostels. The hostel was very very clean and the beds were really good. It is a new hostel and everything inside from the shower to the kitchen is very new. Internet connection was very fast and stable. I will certainly stay in this hostel again when I visit Budapest in the future. Thank you casa Grande Budapest.
