Positively excellent experience at Friends. I cannot recommend it highly enough. I suppose if you're 20something and want a party place, you'll be disappointed. However that I am not, and I was so happy with peace and quiet and tranquil surroundings. There aren't too many rooms so the feeling is very inclusive and helps with the low key vibe and...

Absolutely loved this place. It was in the best location to get around, surrounded by restaurants and shops. We walked everywhere and found it so easy to locate our destinations. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The facilities are wonderful and clean. The place looks so modern and clean. I went with my partner and we loved every second. Our...

Me and my two friends booked a room for 2 nights in a separat apartment. The receptionist was very friendly and gave us some useful tips for our trip. The position of the hostel was very central so that you can reach most things by foot. Our flat had a big size but could have been cleaned more carefully (some...

We booked double private room with private bathroom. When we arrive in the hostel the girl there told us we are going to stay in a different building. At first we were a bit septic, but when we got to the place we noticed that we have accommodation in a private apartment in a renovated historical building on Andrassy street!!!!!!!!!!!!...

Myself and a friend booked a private twin room with ensuite for two nights in February. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly female member of staff who was very helpful. My friend had managed to leave her phone in the taxi to the hostel, and as the hostel had arranged the transfer for it she immediately phoned the...

The place is pretty difficult to find but they send you a very detailed email with pretty specific instructions (good on them!) The staff I encountered were also lovely and wanted to help and were very friendly. It was strange though that they asked you to take your shoes off- and just that slight inconvenience in a hostel (considering you...

We stayed there for 5 days. The hostel was really nice, clean and very friendly. The shared bathrooms were very clean. It could get crowded in "rush hour" in the morning. I liked the fact that you leave your shoes when entering the hostel and they provide you slippers, gives you a cozy feeling. I would definitely stay there again!

We booked a private double ensuite room, and it turned out to be an awesome studio apartment! Although it's not located with the main premise along Terez ut, it's just 5-10mins away along Andrassy ut, between Opera & Bajcsy-Szilinscky metro. Eventually our stay turned out to be such a comfortable week for us to recuperate from a month on the...

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...

“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!!”
