Hostelz.com's Review
Olah Hostel is purposely not clearly marked, so it can be slightly difficult to pinpoint at first, but once you have found it, you will not be disappointed.

The Location

The hostel is ideally located near a metro station, so finding the street is easy. To avoid unwanted attention, the hostel is only subtly signposted, so watch out for this. Based in a quiet suburban part of the town, the hostel is still near large supermarkets and eateries. The metro station is only a few stops from central downtown so distance is not a problem either. Limited parking also seems to be available.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The bathrooms are very clean and serviced routinely. The showers are ideally hot with space to change and hang your clothes up. The dorms themselves are clean and airy. The dorm beds have individual night lamps, shelves, and power sockets for each individual bed, which is very handy. Large lockers are available inside and outside of the dorms for free, but you will need a padlock for extra security. To keep cool, each room has a large fan, but on hot nights air conditioning would be better, but is lacking. The hostel in general has a relaxed atmosphere to it.

Common Spaces

Common spaces take the form of a large dining area complete with fully equipped clean kitchen. This area is also where the manned reception and desktop computers are. Both the fast computers as well as Wi-Fi and the substantial breakfast are free. If you check in early or late, the hostel will allow you to store your luggage there. A TV/DVD room also exists towards the rear, where you can find cable TV and DVDs as well as comfortable seating. Hammocks and outdoor seating are also available in the backyard, near the washing machines and tumble dryers. The staff will do the washing for you for a reasonable fee.

Summary

The owners and management are very friendly and very informative. For example, they will help you with Skype, which is available to use. Overall, there is a little room for improvement, but where there is, the hostel is more than ready and willing to go that extra mile to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
