Hostel Banki Reviews

Not bad

In my opinion, this hostel is very appropriate for young people. It is true that the showers weren't as clean as they should be, but were ok. My bedroom (a four-bedded one) was clean (although my friends and I used our sleeping bag) and had a fridge. The room for four people was 40 euros (10 euros each), so I consider that the relation quality-price is really good.

Hostel Banki was the most disgusting place at which I have ever stayed! The rooms were filled with garbage and covered in dirt. The showers and toilets were absolutely vile. I would never recomend this hostel to anyone under any circumstances. Oh, and our room looked nothing like the pictures online.

No breakfast, just a bunk bed. No real problems besides lack of TP. Showers were clean when I was there. I didn't notice the dust, but I didn't do a white glove inspection; just crashed there for a night. I met some cool fellow travelers though!

The bathrooms were gross. Only one shower on our floor worked. The people were nice and helpful, but the dust and dirt and smells were bad. The location was good though, not too far from a metro station.

This is the worst hostel I've ever been in. It was, as you already know, very ancient, but this is not the problem. The problem was that this hostel is the dirtiest hostel I've seen. The people were gentle, but dust was everywhere (we stayed in room 409). Only later we knew there are many other hostels, better, cleaner and cheaper.

GOOD things: location, met some very nice friendly people there, helpful staff, free table tennis.BAD things: no air-conditioning! (Temperature in Budapest was 40C when we were there and our room was even hotter!), No internet access, No toilet tissue paper, smelly bathrooms, Stained bedding, do not accept credit cards. The kitchenette consisted of only 1 microwave. Nothing else.(tip: Go to the nearby supermarket to buy disposable plates etc..)
