Very helpful staff with finding things to do in the area. VERY clean, very new. If you are looking for a party hostel this place isn't for you (there are TONS of those in the area). The place is decentralized, split up among a few different floors. That is good though and I appreciated how it was quite. Our first...

We stayed here for 6 nights, we found the staff to be pleasant and were delighted that it was warm in the hostel. Our room was not to the standard of others and had a constant, unpleasant smoky smell to it. There was cigarette ash on the window (both i and my boyfriend do not smoke).Shared bathrooms were clean and...

This was my first hostel experience and I loved it! I was a little scared that my husband and I would not be comfortable in a hostel, but Friends was perfect. This place would be great for singles or for couples which is really cool! Everything was clean and in great condition. The rooms were nice and the common areas...

Stayed here for four nights in Budapest and had a lovely stay. Great location in the city - you can get the bus, metro, trains or walk anywhere from here. Great trendy, well-designed, modern but cozy apartment atmosphere. Full kitchen with everything you could need to cook. Really friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable and clean hostel. Very good wifi. Definitely...

We stayed here for 3 nights in a private room with a shared bathroom and shower room and a kitchen. I actually preferred sharing a bathroom as had a choice of a shower or the large bath and there was a proper hairdryer / straighteners in there. Our room was very large and clean with hight ceilings, it's in an...

Can't fault this hostel, lovely atmosphere we visited last year in the summer. They didn't seem to mind when we girls had a drink or two in the communal area. We ended up meeting others from our hometown Yorkshire. The location is just a stones throwaway from the city centre and nightlife. There are TV facilities and the place is...

Overall I would recommend. The hostel is located in an apartment building of sorts, and the room I was in (all girls) was located in a separate part of the building. It really is like a renovated apartment type of hostel, with lots of space and clean and new. The section I was in had a 6 person girls dorm...

Can be easily reached with bus 78 from Budapest Keleti station. The trams 4 and 6 connect it to Oktogon, Margerit island (Lukacs thermal bath), and Budapest Nyugati stations. The board of the hostel is very inconspicuous though :( . I had talked to the hostel staff about it (the staff are very friendly and helpful btw), and they said...

“The room you have is likely dependent on how many are in your party. The facilities were clean, the location is fabulous, that bathrooms, common area and kitchen are shared, but more than adequate... and they offer rental bikes on property, which is a very nice feature as Budapest is bicycle friendly... but the most important asset of this facility if the FRIENDLY HELPFUL STAFF!!”
