A friend and I stayed here in the 7 bed dorm. On arrival we were told that our beds were not ready - even though we emailed a check in time beforehand and didn't arrive until 6pm. We were basically told to go away for an hour or 2 until it was sorted. The sheets on the "clean" beds and... More

Just back home from 4 great nights away in Budapest. It's an amazing city and anyone going there soon, I am truly jealous. What added hugely to my trip (myself plus 5 friends) was our stay at HBC hostel. It's price was very reasonable. It's location suited us perfectly. It was close to some of the best places to go...

Tony and his staff at HBC Hostel were incredible! They bent over backwards to make sure my brother and I were taken care of and even cooked dinner for us one night! We stayed there for 4 days 3 nights. Perfect location in Pest and close to all the main attractions in Pest!

I've stayed there for 3 days and 3 nights and I think it was a very good choice. First we didn't had big problems to move around, it is located only two blocks from one of the subway lines ("Arany János" Station, Line "M3"). Which allows the hostel to be easily reached either from the bus station or the airport,... More

I am a female 25 years old travelling solo and this is like my home from home. The hostel owner Antony is the best! He is funny, helpful, informative - he can tell you anything you need to know. He makes you feel at home and at ease. He really cares about everyone staying in his hostel and will do... More

HBC hostel is located in a very central location in Pest. Most sights, attractions, clubs, pubs and restaurants can be reached by foot. That's convenient, but there are other matters that make HBC almost perfect. The over all atmosphere of the place is soooo friendly. The owner himself is basically always there for you, day or night. He really cares... More

Excelent location! hostel is organized and has an atmosphere that will make you feel at home. But, the best thing is the staff, they are really amazing and helpful, everything you need just ask Antony and I'm sure he will try his best to help you. It really worth!

The Hostel owner was really helpful, showing us the city by his car, providing a hot Hungarian dish free-of-charge (yay!), introducing best place to exchange money, helping us in planning,etc. The room was simple but enough for basic need (you could not ask much with that amzing price ^^) A bit cold at night when the heater was shut down...

Excellent location, situated in a stylish building near the Parliament. Very nice and helpful staff; served us dinner at 1:30 in the morning yesterday! Or a glass of great Croatian wine for those who preferred not to eat. Thanks!

HBC Hostel made Budapest an amazing city for me. You won't regret your stay here. I was traveling on my own and because of the amazing Hostel Owner, I felt at home. He was nice enough to show me the Hungarian culture by making Goulash with me and showed me traditional spices and dances of the people in Budapest along... More
