Liked: Nice clean hostel, staff was friendly and showed me where to go. Pickup from the train station was also good.

Disliked: Staff was frequently not at the reception desk, which only bothered me when I was trying to get some info. Kind of far from city.

Family Holiday

Liked: It is a very nice, modern building, our room was big and comfortable.

Disliked: The problem was that on one of the websites (not on HostelBookers) there was written that it is wheelchair accesible - IT IS NOT! We were with one person using a wheelchair and at premises we found out that the room we booked is on the top floor (the 3rd) and there is no lift..What is more there was nobody at the reception when we came (at 17), so we had a stroll and came back at 21 and again we had to wait for somebody to check in for about 20min. There was just one person at the reception and dealing with airport transfers..

Liked: In a quiet neighbourhood away from noise.

Disliked: We didn't get our 'free' pick up. from the station. We didn't get the promised ride to the train station either, so we missed our train to Budapest. The owner is not around enough and expects guests to wait for him while he always is running late. He juggles this hostel with the original simbol hostel, now called H2ostel in town. He also lost our reservation but luckily there was a room free. This Simbol is student accomodation in the academic year. It is not a genuine hostel as such. There is no communal area, no written information available and the non-english speaking staff are unfriendly. The building is sterile and without character and the rooms are sparsely furnished. There is faulty plumbing and some electrical wires hanging from walls. The shower water only stays on for 20 seconds at a time, like at the swimming baths. Inadequate cooking equipment. It is a 20 minute walk from the centre.We later stayed one night at the Celica (cells) hostel, which is amazing value compared to simbol; cheaper, breakfast included, characterful building, friendly staff, bar, restaurant and communal areas, closer to train/bus station and centre Go there instead!

Liked: didn't really like anything

Disliked: the place is not clean and the building is not even finished.light bulbs are simply connected on the cables... some cables just stick out the ceiling, the place is not finished, looks nice from the outside but I think one should not open an hostel before the building is totaly done.
