I quite liked this hostel. Its decoration was beautiful: it is both Chilean but also hip and bohemian, which is something that I love. Its atmosphere was typical hostel: people chilling, sleeping in ... read more
common areas (too much partying, maybe?), playing pool, using the free computers with internet. I just felt great there. The staff was also very friendly. It is located in a beautiful corner of Providencia. It is a couple of blocks away from Providencia avenue, so it is very well connected but it’s not in a busy or noisy area. Cool-looking bars and pubs are just minutes away. It looks like a cool place to share experiences with fellow travelers or backpackers. Just don’t go here if the whole “sharing atmosphere” doesn’t suit you.

This place had a nice terrace seating with a view, great for people watching. But the food itself wasn't that great. We paid a lot for mediocre, average-ish food. I did like that the coffee and tea ... read more
came with a cute little tiny cookie with them. Overall, good for people watching, but go somewhere else for good food.

DO NOT stay here. I'm only giving 2 stars because it was pretty centrally located. That was its only redeeming quality. Otherwise i would have given it one star. This is pretty much a low end hostel. ... read more
Make sure you read the fine print, there is a reason why the rooms are so cheap. Bathrooms are SHARED with other guests. The only thing in your room, besides the bed, is a little sink and a closet. The sheets were not clean. There were dirty towels in the closet. THERE WAS NO WIFI in the room. The wifi in the main lobby did not work either. The elevator is super slow, and always stops on the second floor (where the supposed lobby is). The consierge does not speak english very well. He is not helpful AT ALL. Even though the price is cheaper than most other hotels in the area, you'd be better off paying more for a better hotel. Don't get fooled. This place is a piece of shit.

Great spot for diving, lots of fish in and around the ship and it's only about 30m off the shore.

It's a really nice place to get away. It's a little green island located in the middle of the danube river. You can take the 9 or 6 tram to get to the island from mainland. It's just a one-stop ride ... read more
from either side of the river. There's lots of greenery, and a refreshing fountain that people can dip their toes into. Every hour or so the fountain starts a music and water show, playing some classical pieces as well as some golden oldies from the american 80s and 90s. The fountain dances along with the music, and at night the dancing fountain gets lit up by colorful lights. Once you pass the fountain, you can buy ice-cream or a refreshing watermellon-mint lemondade (our favorite!) from one of the stands. There are restrooms at a few locations on the island, you can just follow the "toilette" signs indicated on walking paths. Continue walking along the paths... enjoying the nice greenery. I recommend coming here either early in the morning or later in the evening. It gets a little too hot during the day. You'll see a few people lounging on the grass, reading. You'll also see a few joggers. There's a jogging path along the outside edges of the island. It goes all the way around the island. There's a water park located towards the center of the island. Admission isn't that bad, so if you're looking for a way to cool down, it might be a good place to do so. We opted not to go in, but instead continued walking along. There's also a botanical garden on this island, but it was closed for renovations when we were there. You can rent a cart for not very much money to pedal around the island in leisure. If you have an extra day to spend in Budapest, i'd definitely recommend spending it here.

utca. It's located inside the Alexandra bookstore, so it's not very obvious to the un-informed traveller. You enter the bookstore, go up the stairs to the second floor, and there it is. Make sure you look up, the ceiling is beautiful. And there's a pianist playing music sometimes.
