Really enjoyed my stay at home plus hostel. Staff were very helpful, rooms were nice, breakfast was free, eifi was good; what more could you ask? The location was good, right by the river, about 15 minutes from the train station and the good clubs.

Had a really lovely stay at this hostel. The rooms are very clean and the beds have a curtain for privacy which was really nice. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and the whole place is generally very homely and welcoming. I would definitely recommend anyone travelling to Budapest to stay here!

The best part about the hostel is definitely the staff. From the tour guide, to the homemade Hungarian dinner, to the staff member that offered her phone when mine wasn't working. The hostel is situated right next to the tram stop, and super close to all of the attractions. I stayed in an 8 bed mixed dorm, and it was... More

My stay in the hostel was just amazing! As I booked last minute and didn't really do my research as I am used to, I totally missed the information that they serve traditional dinner every saturday FOR FREE. That was a great surprise after walking all day around the city. Also, they are perfectly situated, a short walk from the... More

I was booked for a 4 bed dorm. First when I got there I had problems finding the hostel. No signs except for a small bit of paper next to a door. I get there and I'm told the wifi isn't working but it should be back in an hour or two. I get shown to my room, it is... More

I stayed at this hostel for one night in June 2015. The hostel is located inside an old housing block near to the parliament building and Margaret Island. I found the hostel quite noisy as all the dorm rooms are located directly off the main reception/common area. Also the staff were not particularly helpful and quite rude. I arrived mid... More

Home Plus hostel: Pros: great atmosphere, clean, super friendly (and good lookin'!) staff, free dinner on Saturdays. Deltas: The hostel is divided in 2, meanining that it is in 2 different biuildings (they are next to each other), so if you book separate from your friends you might end up in differet buildings. Also, in the one I stayed there... More

The beds were comfortable and designed so that they would give you lots of privacy, nice and well kept, quiet hostel. Some of the staff could have been nicer. Also wish there was more space in the rooms.

Everything you need from a hostel: clean, cheap, friendly, knowledgeable staff and amazing location. Nothing more to say except that they also provide breakfast every morning and a free Hungarian meal twice a week, so if you're on a budget that's all the better.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
