My experience wos almost good. The hostel was very dirty. The beds are good but the pillows are uncomfortable. For this reason I had to buy one. The host is a good person.

Working in Ciao Hostel while living in Budapest was for sure one of the best experiences in my life. First of all, the work was not hard and you are almost all the time dealing with people and discovering other cultures. Bálazs and Gabi were always very helpful with everything and they understand our side as volunteers, thank you so much. The guests were so nice and I made some good friends. Related to the structure of the place it can be improved, but it will be for sure an unique experience going to Ciao. Budapest is the best city I've ever been and I can't wait to join Ciao again!

Ciao Hostel is a small hostel, but very cozy. Been small, makes easyer to have a nice atmosphere and be closer to all the guests. Gabi (one of the owners) was very helpful all the time I needed. I believe that the infrastructure can be improved, but considering the limitations, it was a nice experience. I recommend and am grateful for this weeks.

My time in Budapest was amazing! loved this beautiful city and I really want to come back one day. I stayed in Hostel Ciao Budapest for 20 days and I had a great experience! The hostel is small and because of that we get really close to the travelers. This was the best thing for me! I met many people traveling from all over the world, in groups or alone, first time backpackers and long time ones! Learned a lot with each person I met and for that I am really thankful! The hostel needs to improve somethings(especially the bathroom haha) but is a place easy to keep clean and tidy.

Now we're looking for enthusiastic people to join our staff to help us create an awesome atmosphere here at the hostel. Living in a new city is a great way to explore everything the city has to offer. If you like to visit new locations, and to meet n...
