All in all, the facilities are great and the Hungarian girls are very welcoming and wonderful. I would give this place full marks if they were the only ones working there. However, the British guys make an excellent experience less than. They don't understand Budapest's location and culture, and they don't want to try. As a 24 hour institution, I... More

Lovely rooms, not a huge hostel so a real family feel I.e breakfast around a large family table.. Hostel workers run the bar crawl. Lovely company there, lovely social area, such a good location- right next to parliament building

She was so friendly and helpful, even when we arrived late at night. She made this place great :). Nice chilled out hostel and good location near some great bars. Keep your eyes peeled for the front door as was a little tricky to find - we walked straight past it a few times!

I've been traveling to almost all of Europe over the years and this is one of the best hostels I've come across. Excellent position, 2 minutes from the Danube by walk and close to most places of interest. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, hardly ever been welcomed better. Rooms in good shape, there are only two bathrooms and three showers... More

Homeplus has two apartments, one where the reception is for dorms and one a block away for privates. We stayed in the latter and felt that the atmosphere in our apartment was poor compared to the other. Rooms were okay, just got very hot at night. Located on one of the main streets so couldn't argue with that.

the two things I ask for in a hostel is a bed and a shower, unfortunatelly the second one was not provided (due to some painting in the bathroom). Also I believe some regulation, on how many showers for how many people is a must, exists and it has been violated for sure (bilion beds in the main building and... More

Dear Ivana! First of all thanks a lot for staying in our hostel. Hope you had a great time in Budapest. We are sad to read your review, partly because we tried to communicate to maintenance in the hostel quite actively, partly because some of your complains are just not appropriate. You wrote, billion beds and two shower. I don't... More

The hostel was in a perfect location for my needs, close to sites of interest and transport links to get around the city. The staff are welcoming and helpful, providing some simple things for breakfast, with facilities for tea and coffee making. The hostel itself has everything you'd expect for a comfortable stay. There are lockers by the beds, private... More
