You can sleep when you're dead so DON'T expect to get any here.
Grandio is one of the only true party places on this earth that welcomes alcoholics, lost souls and arty people with talent but no direction and audiences. It’s a living, breathing creature that is constantly evolving – the place with a crazy cult following.
Head for our onsite bar, or get beer sold by our staff, or drink strawpedoes for breakfast..... or the ‘get f*cked bucket’... these are all ways in which we fuel our thirsty and party-hardy guests (and staff).
When the bar is shut, we move to the late room, the den of noise and naughtiness, with a sex bed depending on how adventurous you are.
Every night our staff take you out on different activities in the city. These range from backpackers’ fancy dress parties to pub crawls to live music nights to karaoke nights, which take you to our personal favourite (plus some of the cheapest) bars in the city. If you feel like doing something a little different, never fear, as our staff have their finger on the pulse of the city's nightlife and are able to recommend differently nightly activities depending on your tastes.
We have a live music venue in the basement which has different acts on every night, providing for all different tastes in music. We have a band called The Grandio Journals, which changes members every week when we practice in the open mic night, and we welcome all talent to perform here.
Every Sunday we showcase the talent we play host to with our own open-mic night in which we use our own instruments, including a plethora of guitars, a drum kit, piano, violin, piano accordions, plus more as well as our very own sound technician!
The staff have all been handpicked, which might seem a bit wild when they are walking around dressed up in dressing gowns with a beer in one hand, but this is the Grandio uniform – wear whatever makes you feel comfortable, or that we got from the euro store that day.
If you think you can challenge us, we'll probably rise to it, if not, we'll respect you for trying!
The place itself is as wild as our staff and guests and has been decorated by street artists from around the world. So the arty amongst you might appreciate the fact that all of our rooms, the outside and insides of everything, are decorated by the best street artists of Budapest, and have been added to by global artists who liked what they saw and wanted to add to it.
Our hostel houses a games room with table football and ping pong, the bar, a secret restaurant (which we could tell you about, but we'd have to kill you) and a mix of rooms (some ensuite, with varying numbers of beds, and if you're lucky, a loo with a view).
If you’re not too hungover during the day, we can organise daytime activities for you. We can organise historical and cultural tours as well as fun activities such as paintballing, beer biking, quad biking and many more.
As well as that, we are in a great location, especially if you like drinking, as we are in the heart of the bar district. The only rules we have are about respecting our guests and neighbours, and other than that we want you to have a wild time, because we will be first!
Please note, like the name says, this IS a party hostel, we go out every night, some people drink in the daytime, there is a bar, sometimes sex, and a lot of fun. If you don't like these things, please try a calmer hostel, like Carpe Noctem Vitae.
Please note: Regrettably, due to previous experience, we can no longer accept bookings for people over 36. If you have booked and are outside this age, please contact us and we will help find you alternative accommodation.
Please bear in mind, that you have now booked a party hostel, with a bar, late night room and drunk people staying as guests. We want this atmosphere to continue and we want you to enjoy your stay, so if you have booked this hostel with hope of a peaceful sleep, you have booked the wrong one! Please try Carpe Noctem Vitae.
Please be aware that we an age limit here at Grandio. You must bet between 18 - 36 years of age to stay at Grandio. Legally we cannot let anyone under the age of 18 stay here as it is a licensed premises and due to past experiences we do not allow anyone over the age of 36 years to stay with us.
Even though this is a party hostel, please note that this is a community based on respect and any breach of respect to the property, staff, or the local community will result in eviction from the hostel.
When you arrive to the city, if you have to get a taxi DO NOT hail one from the streets, please call 003612000000 which is the cheapest taxi company in town.
We need you to pay in cash on arrival, and also bear in mind we will have to charge you for any property damage or any hostel property lost (this includes room keys and padlocks).
We look forward to meeting you and showing you a time in Budapest you will not beat!!
