This is an incredible place to stay in Budapest!! 100% recommend! They have a great mix of party scene and chill scene (the hostel has a ton of common areas) and they have drinking games and activities every night. The staff are unreal, they act just like the other travellers and love getting to know you! It was very clean and had a few nice communal kitchens. Also free eggs and toast in the morning!

The staff here are most excellent and fun. This was my first hostel experience and I was very pleasantly surprised. Everyone is friendly and inviting, on my first night they made a pasta dinner where I met several new friends. The sleeping cube offers total privacy on 5 sides and a heavy curtain on the 6th. Each room has a thermostat so you can be comfortable. I had the please to spend one night in a private room with its own bathroom as well as in the 6 person dorm and both offered great value. Thanks!!
