New York City

It depends on what you are looking for. It is definitely a cozy place and if you are looking for an in to the nightlife, you will most definitely find it in both the staff and visitors. Not too many beds, and it's the type of place where the staff will greet you by name when you come home. The facilities aren't anything to rave about but it's clean, and sufficient. The location is great, access to 2 major stations.

Discretely placed across from the National Museum in the Palace Quarter, the Budapest Bubble is a hidden gem. While it is not going to win any awards for its exquisite decor, the Budapest Bubble is for those young travellers that would like to arrive in Budapest and tap into the pulse of the city. This does not merely mean being located in the heart of the city, the staff prides itself on being familiar with all aspects of Budapest from the museums and history to the nightlife and underground gigs. During my visit the young and energetic Olga who has been running the place for the past five years offered specific off the beaten track sites, informing about local opera house protocol, and inviting visitors to a costume party that evening. Not to worry, the hostel has a chest full of costumes for those travellers who forgot to pack their Telletubby suits. The place is clean and comfortable while not extravagant; it is for the young visitors who are comfortable either catching the latest Mahler performance OR an underground fusion jazz gig and perhaps dancing until the wee hours dressed as a pirate.

Much more than just a place to lay your head for the night, owner Olga and her friendly young staff go out of their way to make sure you find your bearings. They have been known to take new arrivals out for a welcome beer at one of the city’s famous (infamous?) ruined garden bars. And how many hostels send you a thank you email after you’ve left? Not many, but the Bubble does. When it’s full, this place can feel a bit cramped, such as when you queue for the shower, but the property is cleaned once a day and, in general, a good time is had by all: especially with free coffee and tea available and wifi throughout the premises. Single but quite comfy beds in double rooms, or bunk beds in dormitories, the choice is yours.

I have not done the whole backpacking hostel thing in awhile, but decided to give it another try on a recent independent trip to Europe. I opted for the Budapest Bubble because it was noted how lively and friendly the staff was. The comments definitely lived up to my experience and the owner's daughter along with the other staff members were great about inviting everyone to come along to the bars each night. They were helpful and knowledgeable with recommendations and extremely conversational. While the service and overall experience were stellar, I cant ignore the cleanliness of the hostel. The staff cleaned the bathroom regularly, but the shower curtain needed to be replaced years ago and the rooms can get pretty messy since the dorm room has like 10 beds.
