This is value for money. It's old but clean, but our room required a lift plus stairs which are quite narrow. No big signs you will need to look for street number followed by building resident list to find reception. Great location. Very helpful staff.

Budapest and this hostel were great! We wouldn't have found half the good things in this city if we weren't for the help from one of the women at reception whose name we sadly can't remember. She helped us a lot and even changed the lock in room 5 for us. Thanks for such a great stay! :D

I booked a 6 bed dorm for my family to start our trip but we were given a lovely apartment which was a surprise which delighted my family. We arrived late at night and enjoyed seeing how well located we were with lots of great restaurants, facilities and tourist sights nearby when we woke up. Victoria was very friendly and...

The hostel supplied us with an apartment in Budapest. At that apartment we shared toilets with another room. The location was pretty awesome, really in the city center. You really feel like you are staying at your...

Everything was lovely, we even had some tea and coffee available in a basket with something white in a jar. Sadly...

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
