The hostel was quite, clean and close to the city centre and felt like home. We only stayed for one night, and the only downside was that there was no staff available at all times, so when we wanted to ask information about where to go and how to get to places from the hostel, there was no-one to guide us. Luckily we found another girl there who has visited Budapest quite a lot of times, so she helped us with finding our way to the train station.
Jenny was an absolute doll, the location was perfect walking distance from the "thick of it" without being overwhelming so coming home was a delight. Very cute and otherwise less visited part of pest. Great chilled vibe in a very secure and safe spot. Thanks heaps Jenny!
Our stay in Anadin Hostel was amazing. The beds are comfortable, a good size, everyone has a relatively big, personal locker and the bedrooms are very cozy. The living room's comfortable, the kitchen's terrific with a little breakfast bar (breakfast is included, even!) and the shower plays music! At about 10 minutes from the city, this place is surprisingly quiet and relaxing, and Jenny was always willing to help with everything, whether it be with questions, transport or advice.
This place is in a great location. It's an old apartment full of beds, which means it can be cozy but can also be noisy because you can hear every creaky door opening and shutting. The owner is super nice but she's not there much, although she answers emails quite quickly. The bathrooms are usable but not great. Some of the permanent guests are a bit annoying. Overall, this is a decent hostel and I like the all female idea.
very clean, very friendly owner, nice atmosphere. more than enough breakfast! there are two bathrooms, two toilets, very clean kitschen, quite big rooms. all was very clean and the owner really friendly and spoke good english. it was very clam and we slept very well. all great!
We were three girls staying at the hostel for two nights. The staff was really nice, trying to give us as many helpful tips as possible. Actually the hostel is more like a big appartment with a small group of people staying there, so it is definitely very cosy. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. The breakfast was self-service in a cute kitchen. As for the location, it is on walkable distance to the tram and buses are near. The neighbourhood seemed safe. We all enjoyed staying at this hostel.
Stayed here briefly on a solo trip. It's a very small hostel that is actually an apartment in a residential building (the neighbours are really nice). Towels, wi-fi, slippers, lockers and basic breakfast are provided. I like that the owner placed a drying rack in the room I was in. There is a park along the Danube just beside the hostel. Aldi is nearby as well as another supermarket. If you're looking for a mall, there is one within walking distance (15 minutes or so) called West something..overall a nice stay in a nice city that I hope I get the chance to visit again!
The most important thing to know is that this is basically an apartment with all the typical apartment amenities in a residential building in a residential district. The reception desk is not so much a thing--the owner was available by phone and email and very responsive and unusually kind and helpful, but when you get back in the evenings it's just you and whoever else is staying in the hostel. Fortunately, the hostel seems to attract a low-key but very friendly crowd--I felt like I was the youngest person there at 22, but I'm sure a lot of that depends on who happens to be staying in the hostel while you're there... anyway, after a long day of sightseeing (or, you know, lounging around in Budapest's bathhouses), it was very nice to feel like you were coming back home for the night, without the American fraternity brothers that seem to be a feature of every other hostel I've stayed in barging in at 3 in the morning and stumbling around drunk. Definitely recommended for women who don't want a party hostel--especially because the price was a bargain regardless!
Oh my God! This place is totally not a hostel! It is obviously a home! Jennifer is so helpfull and atmosphere is great! She tells u which places u should see and guides you well. Also hostel is very close to historical places like parliment building, museums,bridges! TUNA river is just behind the apartment! And if you wanna go to Margaret Island for partying; it is about 10 minutes by walk maybe less! It is great to stay here!
Liked: The hostel was really excellent. In all my travels, this is the first time I have felt at home in a hostel. The hostel is not very large, it is basically an apartment with several rooms, and there are bunk beds in the rooms. There is also a lounge area with TV and DVD player, with a coffee table that had guide books in different languages about Hungary or Europe. There is also a bathroom, a separate shower and a separate toilet, which made it very convenient as you do not have to wait too long to shower. The kitchen was small but well-equipped, so it was possible to cook your own meals if you wish. The bedroom has 6 beds, and you will get a locker next to your bed. You will get a towel and a face towel too. There is a small table with some chairs in the room so the whole place is really done up well.Jenny, the owner of hostel, was very pretty and helpful, and she patiently explained to me all the sights to see or the things to do in Budapest, using a city map. This made navigating around very easy. She also gave very clear instructions about getting to the hostel. The hostel is situated in a quiet neighbourhood with some shops (selling grocery, wine etc), a few bars and restaurants along the road. To me, this property is quite well-located as you can get food and public transport quite easily. It is true that the property is a distance from most of the attractions, but I personally think that it is not that bad with public transport.Another thing which I thought is good about this property, is the fact that it is a female-only hostel, which is really helpful for solo female travellers like myself.
Disliked: Even though the windows were closed, I felt that the rooms were a little too cold, as if the heaters were not switched on (but they were).
