Absolutely loved my time here, came with a friend whilst interrailing and as soon as they opened the door the staff were welcoming and showed us around and even gave us a map of Budapest and showed us all the best places to go :) They offer a laundry service and the woman who worked there even did all our...

I stayed in a private room at Friends Hostel and I loved it. The room was spacious and had a comfortable bed. The apartment had one large and one smaller shared bathroom so I never had to wait to get ready in the morning. Krista, who works at the front desk, is fantastic. She is a knowledgeable and lovely person....

I had a very great stay at the Budapest Budget Hostel, very cheap and great value for your money. Nice, spacious en clean roos, helpfull staff and useful kitchens. The bathrooms do need an upgrade though.

The Friends Hostel is definitely somewhere that stands out for me in regards to accomodation I've used over the years. Its modern, clean, great facilities, great staff, beautiful building and street. For us Kriszta really made our stay the best it could be. She is probably one of the nicest people I have come across and wonderful at her job....

Friends hostel was a great value for money, the rooms were really clean and so were the shared bathrooms. The communal area included a kitchen and a sofa meaning it had a very social vibe and we met lots of great people! Basics such as butter and pasta were provided so we didn't have to spend much money on food....

Arrived at the hostel expecting to be placed in a dorm room within the hostel. However, we were taken to an apartment down the road (so away from the main hostel). Apartment was lovely, clean and homely. Shared with 6 other girls. Had a proper kitchen and bathroom all clean. The beds were comfortable, air con but room were still...

Unlike the typical hostel with many rooms and huge common areas where guests can meet and hang out together, this is a two bedroom apartment. (I stayed in the female only one.) The apartment is spacious, kitchen is nice and clean, bathroom with bathtub facility (which you can't really utilise because the hot water will become cold when you try...

The atmosphere is GREAT, very relaxing. Staff is so nice and helpful. The rooms and the hostel is overall clean! So much more than you could ask for in a hostel! Best location aswell. Close to bars, walking distance to all of the attractions. Will definitely come back to Budapest and this hostel! Such a nice city!!

On the internet, the hostel looked cozy and hip and that's why I booked a bed for a couple of nights. In reality, it was a bit of a disappointment. The place is a private apartment, somewhat re-arranged into a hostel. The staff did clean the hostel, without the help of a cleaning lady. Yet the rooms weren't really clean....

“The room you have is likely dependent on how many are in your party. The facilities were clean, the location is fabulous, that bathrooms, common area and kitchen are shared, but more than adequate... and they offer rental bikes on property, which is a very nice feature as Budapest is bicycle friendly... but the most important asset of this facility if the FRIENDLY HELPFUL STAFF!!”
