We stayed for two nights in this hostel, it does not look like a hostel from the outside and is on the first floor of apartment blocks which makes it a little difficult to find at first. The man who checked us in on 14th december was very nice and spoke great english, he was very helpful and friendly. However the people at reception for the 15th and the morning of the 16th were not. The man at reception on the 15th of december was not welcoming, did not greet you when you came inside he instead was behind the desk either texting, on the computer or reading his book, he did not even look up. When we checked in we were told that there would be a group of 15 year olds staying at the hostel but that they would ensure noise would be kept low. On the morning of the 15th we were woken at 6.45am by these kids running up and down the hall, knocking loudly and repeatedly on eachothers doors and screaming and shouting down the hallway, we decided we would obviously not be getting anymore sleep and when we opened our door to go out for the day the children were outside our room putting makeup on eachother and laughing and shouting really loudly, not only that but they were blocking the hallway. The noise was not kept to a minimum like we were told. As we walked out to reception we noticed that the man at reception was sitting behind the desk, hardly noticeable not paying attention to the noise and definately not trying to keep them quiet for other guests, the impression was that he simply did not care! That night we went to bed at 9.30pm as we had to get up at 3am for our flight. We were woken at 11pm by these children coming back in and they were shouting and screaming down the hallway, and constantly knocking on the doors which then kept us awake. We are so dissapointed with this stay. The room was okay but the bathroom had a sewer smell to it and that lingered into the bedroom and was the first smell you got as you opened the door. There was also dirty cotton buds from previous guests in our shower. Overall dissapointed with this stay and would not reccomend it to anyone, we were even considering moving to a different accomodation but thought it was pointless as we only had the one full day in budapest. We loved budapest as a city but will definately stay elsewhere next time.
