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.

IMPORTANT: Due to new district rules, which came into force at the end of September 2012, the signs for all businesses in our building will be removed. Please use the building number (22) to find us.

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

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Great location, great people esp Feri and team. Great Hungarian food night. Recommend that all guests to contribute a small item (wine, beer, fruits etc) for completeness.

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.
