Had a great stay. Staff were very helpful and the place was clean and quirky. Location is ideal, central and right by a main metro station. The place is poorly sign posted so keep an eye out for the building.. no signage on the front. Fully recommend staying here, even if your not hipster.

After that we got a room near the kitchen and the main badroom and it was sooo noisy, that I could´t sleep until 01 at night (it...

I stayed here because it was recommended by a friend of mine. I had spent one night in another hostel first and then 3 nights at Hipster Hostel and I am so glad I moved. I loved it's chilled out vibe. It is not that far from things, once you are familiar with the city. It is close to good...

Hipster Hostel is everything a hipster wants. Framed moustaches, wall writings, nearby cafe's and a young and friendly staff. Situated in an old french 'riad' based building lies Hipster Hostel. Right in the center of the city. The hostel itself is just a small part of a giant complex and can be hard to find the first time your there....

I stayed at The Hipster Hostel for 3 nights when travelling solo in Budapest. I booked it after reading the other reviews on trip advisor and thought that it looked clean and modern with a good location. I've never stayed in a hostel solo before so I wasn't too sure what to expect but even still, I was a little...

Stayed at hipster hostel for 3 days with my girlfriend in a dorm room. Great dorms with great people, but most importantly a very helpful and smiling staff. If you are looking for a hostel without noisy drunk people all night, this is the place. The location is also a big plus!

The hostel is perfectly located a two minute walk from Kalvin Ter metro station and a 20 minute walk from both the city centre and the main nightlife district. The staff were friendly, attentive and happy to provide recommendations to guests. Lockers and complimentary towels and bedding were provided, which is much appreciated as some hostels charge extra for things...

“I was staying at the Magenta Room, which was really nice. I have seen the other rooms of HH as well, and I can clearly say it is really nice everywhere! (Ps.: I didn't mean to rate the 'swimming pool' - part. They don't have any obviously.. :D)”
