during the night a little noisy, during the Heatwave pretty hot, but ear plugs and some short cool showers can help. We felt comfortable and secure :-)
Everyone in Dbc hostel was very nice, although it can get pretty loud at nights since everyone is hanging out in the common areas untill late hours. Anyway, we really liked it.
Well located-really close to the nightlife area of the city (e.g. Instant, Szimpla)
Lots of showers and toilets
A really nice communal area
Rooms are spacious and well equipped (shelves, desks, lamps, minifridge)
Staff are friendly and accommodating (they upgraded us to a five bedroom private although we booked a dorm for no extra cost)
The self catering kitchen is poorly equipped and quite dirty
We were on the third floor which was quite a trek especially if you don't trust the rickety lift
Really enjoyed our stay at dbc hostel. The staff was very friendly, with good english skills and a lot of tips for getting around in the city. No aircon or fans in our room but since the ceilings are high the heat is bearable. The atmosphere was great, there were a lot of young people and we also had a lot of fun with the people working there. You can wash your clothes for free. Location was good as well.
Liked: The owner was really helpful with all our questions. We met a lot of people in the court yard where we had the our dinners too. I wouldn't expect too much of the hostel itself but the rooms are great value for money, we had a private with wonderful view :)
Disliked: The shower floor was always wet.
If you're looking to party than this is the hostel for you, we weren't on a party holiday and it was pretty loud in the evenings so if you're a light sleeper probably not the best choice. The staff were super friendly and very helpful, the guy even carried our bags to our room! Really close to the metro, which is super cheap like everything in Budapest. Would recommend for travelers.
Very close to the center, situated in a safe zone of Budapest , very simple and well cleaned, the owner was very gentle with us and the price was fantastic, remember it is an hostel and you don't have hotel comforts but only necessary things. Easy, cheap and good. Suggested!
Best accommodation of trip , staff were friendly and incredibly helpful . managed to find a room for all 7 of us and gave us advice on where the nightlife was. A well furnished appart-hostel in a central-ish area.
Just a place to rest our heads before leaving by train the next day. Very cheap for a private room with a bed each, but linens were dirty. Also dirty was the kitchen, with caked food on the dishes. Shower and bathroom were ok. Little to no atmosphere. Fine if you just need a place to crash while going out and partying at the more lively hostels.
