    The hostel does NOT exist I spent an hour to find the hostel only to find that it’s under renovation. So when I arrive the hostel it’s literally empty with only a few renovation workers. They called to the hostel owner for me and the owner ask me to go to another hostel to stay. The experience is awful and the other hostel is totally different from what I was asking for. And I still haven’t receive my refund back.

It's difficult to find this hostel because here doesn't have signboard. I also confused to find here for 30m. And I recieved absolutely different room I saw in the internet and I've never seen the worst cleanliness:) the employee was so kind but can't speak english. So I made conservation with him by using translator. Finally, if you use here, you can find you bitten by insects like bed bug:)

    worst hostel everWhen I arrived there was no one in the reception so I couldn't get into the building so a granny who was living upstairs opened the door for me. Then I had to wait for another 3 hours just for the staff to show up.. I booked in 4 beded room but they gave away my room to someone else so l had to sleep in the 8 beded room and this took another 2 hours. It was ridiculous how they treated me and the dorm was untidy because of people who were living there(they were staying in the same room with us and it seemed like they didn't clean their place up for many days) so I guess that's where I got my itchy bites from. The most furious part was that they tried to charge me for 4 beded room while I slept in 8 beded room!!! I was so sick and tired of this place so I just left Budapest even though there was so much to see.. It made me scared that there would be other places like this

    Don’t expect the room as beautiful as picture.”

    Just pay what you get. Breakfast really like not provided at all. Kitchen was messy and this hostel mostly like renting out to the students and young ppl who want to work part time or studying because they told me stay in hostel is cheaper than hostel in university. So, just a short stay is ok. But for me. I think the room was clean and toilet is too small. The location is close to the Parliament House and next the light train station. I also asked around ppl of finding the right entrance of this hostel . Luckily, the quest there told me the entrance. The building old but at least the room was warm enough for me to stay during the winter

    You get what you paid for”

    I stayed for 3 nights in the 6-bed mixed dormitory. First of all, it took us more than 30 minutes to find the correct building with the reception desk. We first found the other building with the other rooms where we waited for a person in the reception desk for a good 15 minutes, until the tenants said that we're on the wrong building. When we did find the correct building, it was a struggle to get inside because of the intercom. The hostel is basically old and run-down - The photos are no longer accurate. The beds are just about comfortable, but the pillows are super thin, they're 'barely there.' The sockets are inconveniently out of reach, but at least there's a lamp per bed as well as a curtain for privacy. But my friend got bed bug bites. The free breakfast, although simple, is actually pretty good, but it can get crowded because the dining area is small. The kitchen is basic. There's a small area to lounge on. But the most disappointing part was the bathroom/shower facilities - especially the separate shower room in front of the kitchen. It could use some real cleaning. The sink was clogged, but at least the water pressure was high. There are 2 separate toilets, and 2 separate shower cubicles - but it puzzled me because there's no way to lock the shower cubicle, which means anybody can just open and go inside. You can do your laundry as needed. The 4 things I liked about this hostel are: - the free breakfast - at least the staff are helpful and friendly - the low price - the perfect location: just a few-minute-walk from Hungarian parliament and Margaret Island; within walking distance from a bus stop if going to Hosok There and is just in front of a tram station All in all: you get what you paid for.

    Terrible! Don't book for this hostel!!!”

    Worst hostel I've even met!The room is totally different with the pics shown on Agoda. The bed sheet is dirty and old; the lamp of my bed was broken; the locker inside is so small, I couldn't put my luggage in it even it's just a small gip;There are only 2 toilets which the toilet paper always out of stock, the staff never refill it! I just stayed for 2 nights, 3 times I found there is no toilet paper and the staff either ask me to refill myself, or even not at the reception area so that I need to find it myself! AND!!! The showers are super small, dirty and the pipe was totally stucked!!! The water couldnt go down when u are having a bath, it was flooding and came out from the tub! Many travlers complain about it, at least my room had 3! But on 2nd day the situation didn't improve, I claim for refund of the remain 2 days(I booked 4 days), they only refund me for the last night coz of the cancelation policy, I said it wasn't my problem to cancel,they are rude and said u are free to go!

    Untidy & Not Well Managed Hostel”

    HomePlus Hostel management looks poor as 1st of all they have multiple buildings and they adjust you as per their availability rather as per your booking. I have booked for a bed in 4 bed room type in main bldg but they asked me to go to bldg backside of main bldg. Moreover, I was provided a loft accessible through stairs, which has no gate (just a bed and small box to keep ur luggage) . Even sheets and pillow were dirty. Also, there was only 1 bathroom and toilet to be shared among may be 10-12 people. Though, they have kitchen facility where you can make your meal , my booking through Agoda suggested free breakfast but they denied and instead told they have dinner alternate days. didn't liked the idea..
