Some people travel to see the sights. Some just want to get away. Others do it to escape the scrutiny of home so they can make memories they would otherwise be ashamed of. No matter what your own reasons might be, ask any backpacker what they remember the most from their travels and the answer will always be the same: the amazing people they met. And it's for this very reason that we opened a hostel in Budapest.
The best thing anyone could say about a hostel is that it feels like a home away from home, with a family you never knew you had – so nothing makes us prouder than hearing our guests make that remark about us, over and over again! All the staff living and working at the hostel chose this life because we love traveling, we love meeting people, and most of all we love Budapest. The architecture, the history, the never-ending festivals, the random sing-alongs with strangers in a bar... our beloved city has a world of experiences and memories to offer, and we do our best to make sure our guests experience as much of it as they can.
We will send you off during the day with a map full of X's and a head full of tips; just make sure you're back home in time for our daily hostel dinner, followed by a variety of pub crawls and parties organised every night by our staff! But don't worry, we won't pressure you to join the party if you really need a night off ;)
All of this to say that while most people do consider us a party hostel, we do what we can to make sure we check all the boxes, because man can only live so long on beer alone. If you've been travelling for a while, at some point you'll want a quiet night in to detox and relax, cook a healthy meal, watch a movie and sleep off the hangover. And no matter how long you've been travelling, you'll always miss the comfort and amenities of your own home. All of this we strive to offer, so that you can have the best stay possible with us.
