All I could think was: this is a hostel?
This is a hostel?!
It was absolutely charming! Soft, comfortable rooms on the third flight of an old dwelling near the city center of Budapest. Sort of like finding yourself in a boutique hotel hidden behind an unmarked door.
I deliberately packed light knowing that I had to climb the stairs to the third floor, but in an old building with high ceilings, three flights is more like six. I was huffing and puffing by the time I got to the top, but still had enough energy to start snapping pictures. I loved the artwork!
Unlike some hostels, you can get a private room, some with private baths as well. I booked a double room with shared bath (the only one available for the nights I stayed) for 41 Euros a night!
Budapest charmed me from the minute I dropped my bags.
Do you stay in hostels? Have any to recommend?
