Very good place for young and old. I am very glad that I chose this hostel traveling with my 70 year old friend. It is a little picky. If you feel well here this place is great! It is warm and cozy and quiet. I highly recommend because it is affordable and in the city center.

The hostel is located in a nice area, close to all the main attractions. It is clean, nice and cosy. There's free and quite fast WiFi in the rooms, which is a huge plus. The staff was very helpful. Plenty of restaurants, bars and clubs nearby.

I picked out this hostel's private quad room with a group of 3 other people, since it's a safe walking distance from most of the tourist attractions, including the train station, the Basilica, and the Dohany street synagogue. It's dirt cheap and it's squeezed in an apartment complex between 2 buildings meaning it's very small, but don't judge too quickly-it's... More

It is a cheap hostel, perfect for backpackers. We got a single room and we have everything we need. There is a kitchen so you can prepare a quick breakfast. The hotel is exactly where the city center starts and it is 5-7 minutes walking from one of the most popular ruin bars of the city "szimpla kert"

We stayed at LIVE hostel for 3 nights. It was a wonderful experience. The rooms were very clean and check in was super easy. It's a smaller hostel but big enough to where we could spread out some. I would definitely recommend it for groups of friends backpacking together but it's not really a hostel if you're looking to make... More

I stayed here over the bank holiday weekend, it was so cheap for 3 nights - very basic but you get what you pay for! And the location of the hostel is perfect, very close to all the night life and you can easily walk into the central tourist area too. The hostel staff are very friendly and gave us... More

The building looks run down and the lift is a relic, but the hostel itself looks new and very clean. Showers were great, way above Europe/hostels standards. Even though reception is not 24h, every time staff were there they were very helpful - one even gave me a ride to the train station. The location is great, walking distance to... More

We were a little apprehensive as we went through the front door, looked a little run down, then we entered the hostel and it was so gorgeous! The place was immaculate and had everything we needed. The lady was ever so helpful and pretty much helped us make a plan for our entire trip! Had a great time, Thank you!... More
