The Hostelz.com Review

Art Hostel is possibly the smallest one we have stayed in, with one of the friendliest atmospheres. The hostel is basically just an apartment, and has a capacity of about fourteen people. The staff are very friendly, and it is very likely that you will meet the owner or his wife, who are also very nice and welcoming people.

The Location

The hostel is located less than ten minutes on foot from the Nyugati train and metro stations, and the walk there is very straightforward. The main bus station is on the same metro line as the hostel, and the airport is accessible by train. The location is also great for visiting the city, as most tourist landmarks are within walking distance.

Rooms and Bathrooms

There are three shared rooms, and one small private room that has two beds. The shared rooms are large, with very high ceilings and no bunk beds. There are in-room lockers and locks for every guest. There is one small bathroom with a shower, toilet, and sink/vanity, and a larger bathroom with a footed bathtub, toilet, sink, mirror, and even a bidet (we didn't try the latter). They are clean and well functioning, and the bathroom has a certain charm that you don't usually see in hostels.

Common Spaces

There is a small common living room, with a TV, a computer with free internet access (and free Wi-Fi) , and a small common kitchen. The coffee is free, and they have a coffeemaker, unlike most hostels. The size of the hostel, and the number of people staying there, really make it feel like you're staying in someone's house -- a great feeling, in our opinion. We have stayed there twice, and both times we felt like we were sharing an apartment with roommates. This is a quiet hostel, but we have met a few interesting people, in addition to the staff and owners.

Summary

Overall, this is one of the best hostels we have stayed in, thanks to its small size and its location. We haven't had any issues with anything and would go back there in a heartbeat.

A gem in the heart of Budapest
Super well-managed hostel with both dorms and private rooms. Thoroughly cleaned daily. The young women on duty are delightful, helpful, professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the area.
