        So beautiful place”

        The Hostel is located in a nature conservation area, close to the Margaret Bridge, and it took only five minutes to reach the public transportation. The accomodation is clean, which also has a beautiful huge terrace, and the stuff is up-to-date and flexible. The house policy contains some things such as: after 10 pm you have to keep the silence providing the guests a restful sleep. The fully equipped kitchen can be used at any time of the day and at the bottom of the hostel you can find a pub which depending on the weather offers some kind of specialties and you can choose from many varieties.( The langos was the best one)On the Island also has sport swimming pool, Japanese garden and a little Zoo which offers a lot of opportunities. I think one day way too enough to explore not just the city but the Island also. I highly recommend this accommodation not just for a day but for more nights!The taxi cannot go inside the Island, so you have to go by walk or rent a bike etc...

        Fantastic!”

        The Island Hostel is perfect. The location on Margaret Island is right among its bars and eateries but also it has its own large kitchen and terrace looking onto the Danube. The feeling is of a home from home and the staff will help you in any way. I stayed in three different rooms, all of which were lovely. Highly recommended.

        Lovely stay”

        This place is special for those travellers looking for some quietness. In the middle of an island and surrounded by a park and besides the river. Staff is nice, they waited for me until 1.00 am, so I'm so grateful and would recommend it!

        I enjoyed the stay, nice place, good price quality balance, a bar attached to it which was ok to watch some football, but I thought the supervisors weren't really social and enthusiastic people.
