About Home Made Hostel

If you are a traveller looking for a friendly, well-located (a nice 20 minute walk to the Buda Castle District and other major sights), home-from-home place with a friendly atmosphere, you've found your hostel. This is the best hostel in Budapest if you want to make friends, share your travel experiences with others and go out to have fun with your hostel mates.

Please devote some time to reading the hostel description before making reservations. Thank you.

I had seen this place online and was impressed; when I arrived I discovered just how truly amazing Home Made Hostel is. I stayed in a private double room, which turned out to be a truly fabulous self-contained apartment. All of the staff at Home Made are incredibly helpful and the rooms are spacious, unique and very clean. The location is very central and there are some fantastic restaurants around the corner (the staff at Home Made suggested them and they were delicious, cool and economical). I would recommend this over all other hotels or hostels in Budapest.
