Stayed here in August 2014 while interrailing round Europe with 3 other girls. Incredibly helpful host who had all the time in the world to answer any questions we had about Budapest and to give us tips on things we hadn't even thought about! Great location and the hostel is immaculately kept! Couldn't have dreamt of a better place to stay in Budapest (even with the stairs) :)
Stayed for 4 nights and couldn't have asked for anything more. Pros: 1) Location is fantastic (in Jewish quarter within walking distance of most attractions in the city, close to cool shops restaurants and bars). 2) Hawaii is an excellent host. She provided great advice on everything in the city. 3) Very clean and spacious accommodation. 4) Really chill. This place is more a collection of private rooms with shared living and kitchen areas than a hostel. Still able to meet other travellers. If you looking for a party hostel this isn't for you. Luckily, it is affiliated with the Budapest party hostels if you want to let loose. Cons: The apartments are on the top storey of a 5 storey building and there is no lift. Overall, I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Budapest.
Loved this hostel. Maddy and Hawaii are lovely and would bend over backwards to help you in any way. The hostel is beautiful and clean with excellent kitchen and computer/ printing facilities. Extremely clean. A good option for two people looking for a nice place to stay in the centre of the city. It's very good as it's a sister hostel of the big party hostels and every day they have so much on offer and things to do. But don't stay here if you want a crazy buzzy place! But we loved it!!
What a lovely, chilled out home from home. It's very private with all beds in their own room and is more like a hotel. With an amazing kitchen and living area. But with the added bonus of being linked to a party hostel if you want to join in on their events.
Liked: The location is amazing! We stayed in the private apartment which was luxury for backpackers and very good value for money. The staff were very helpfull and informative and always smiling.
Disliked: Caley left no negative feedback.
Liked: The rooms are spacious and clean, and the bathrooms are the same. There's a great common area and kitchen for guests to use. The staff, Hawaii and Gemma, were both super helpful and knowledgeable about Budapest, and they always let us know what organised activities were going on that day. We also got a free room upgrade as the hostel was quiet while we were there. We were very comfortable for the few nights we stayed and would highly recommend to others!
Disliked: Yes, there are a lot of stairs, but the staff are willing to help with your luggage!
