I had booked this hostel for one night. The pictures online doesn't look like the real thing. We came to the hostel, the building was ice cold. The bank terminal was broken so we had to leave the hostel again to take out money. We pay. They dont have change. So the receptionist goes into the backroom and calls another...

Lived here during szigetfestival. Basic rooms with shared bathrooms. The rooms where nice and clean but the showers and toilets got dirty fast even if they where cleaned every day. Really good location near to the city center, West end shopping and the termal bath.

Very poor value for money. Staff mostly absent or disinterested. No security - could easily walk in off street. . No cleaning or fresh towels for a week. No lights in corridors and some rooms missing numbers. Unacceptable for the high room price. Massively over priced for a poor hostel, worth looking else where.

Very poor, the guesthouse is run down and the staff are clueless. We stayed for 6 days and the room wasnt cleaned once. The two days we decided to have a lie in we had knocks at the door because the staff didnt know which rooms were occupied

The worse experience ever abroad, I went to the hotel at two in the afternoon, wait for 3 hours to sort out my room. The managers show up in a really aggressive manners. I never experience such a bad service and now solution given. I think if you not available to give room don't take bookings. After 4 hours of...

Everything was very good including the very helpful staff. Room very comfortable. The shared bathroom is the thing I should mention. It is shared and like a gym shower. No amenities at all in the bathroom including no bathtub. Just a shower stall.

I chose the hotel on the basis of the description on Expedia website, which stated that the staff were multilingual, whilst a number of photographs clearly showed a very clean modern hotel. In reality this was nothing more than a dirty run down hostel. The state of this supposing hotel can be only described as a building site, you come...

This wasn't exactly what we were expecting. The shared bathrooms were a surprise, we don't remember it being advertise (could be wrong) but for what we paid for it was very clean! The shared bathrooms were cleaned very regularly and we never struggled to use the shower. It comes with clean towels. Whilst breakfast isn't advised, for us the staff...

Professional photos do not match what the rooms actually look like - HOWEVER, for what you pay for, the rooms are more than adequate. Towels provided, and the room was basic but very clean. Shared bathrooms were always clean and never had a problem with them being occupied by someone else. If you arrive at night, don't be put off...

Having paid £50 each for a 5 night stay we couldn't have asked for better value for money. We had what looked to be a recently renovated room, it was very spacious, comfy bed, flat screen TV mounted on the wall and also air conditioning. The bathroom was always clean and well stocked even though we were sharing with the...
