2/10 Poor

Beware! This place may not exist.
Budapest was quite full on this holiday weekend, but Ace Hostel approved our room request. However, when we arrived and found the address, it was a large apartment building with no indication of Ace Hostel. Another group of 3 people with a booking arrived soon after. We called the contact number and were told someone would soon come over. After waiting over 30 minutes, in the rain, no one had come, so we called again. This time, we were told to go to a nearby McDonalds where a woman would meet us and take us to another hostel. Again we waited over 30 minutes and still no one came. Thankfully, we had not paid in advance and were able to find last-minute availability at a local hotel. A miserable experience, overall!

Very central hostel
Very central hostel. The hostel is located in the middle of the city, on walking distance from the big attractions. In my opinion is the room very cheap for the quality you get. There staff is friendly, but you cannot leave your stuff somewhere, because the check out time is 10.00 am.

2/10 Poor

Not a hostel
This place really isnt a hostel. Just an apartment at most. Compared to all the other hostels I've been to, this is probably a new low. There is no reception at the given address. I had to call when I arrived and someone showed up to take me to the apartment. The condition of the bed was questionable. Washroom and showers were bearable. It lacked a lot of standard features that I would expect at a hostel - lockers, a proper kitchen, wi-fi. I'd wish I took some pictures to prove my point but it wasnt at the top of my mind.

Don't stay here!
First of all, it is not a hostel. Some guy took us to an apartment close to the official address of the supposed hostel - there is no hostel at the official address. There were three rooms with beds, one bathroom, one living room and kitchen in the apartment - all rooms and all furniture were in shabby condition. I don't believe the owner even bothers to change the bed linen after guests leave. The only positive thing about that place is the location. Nothing else.
