Liked: Perfect location if you need to stay near the Keleti railway station. Clean, hot shower, free hot drinks, PC with a very fast internet available. I felt safe even though I arrived relatively late. The guy working in the hostel very helpful.

Liked: The best way to stay in Budapest if you have connections to/from Keleti train station - 5 minutes on foot. Easy to find, ok facilities, helpfull staff.

Disliked: Probably it was just my feeling, but I felt linen not so clean. I haven't found any dirt on it - it was just my feeling.

Liked: The proximity to the train station is nice.

Disliked: The hostel is very hard to find and very small. It can feel rather cramped is there are a lot of people there. There is not always a staff person present in the hostel at all times, which makes one feel a little uneasy about the safety of their stuff if some other guest accidentally leaves the door open.

Liked: It was very good value for money. The location is fantastic from Keleti station and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The 6 sharing is cool and the ambiance nice. I really enjoyed staying there.

Disliked: Cleanliness of the bathroom but it was much better than what i expected considering it was the 6 sharing.

Liked: Good location as it was close to the train station, particularly for onward trips to Zagreb or Venice (the train leaves at 6.30am and the hostel is 5 mins away). There are only 15 or so beds so this meant the hostel was really intimate and you got to talk to most other people staying there. It definitely felt like we were staying in an apartment rather than a hostel.

Disliked: The staff could definitely have been a little friendlier.
