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

I visited Budapest with my friends in mid May and we stayed in Home Plus Hostel. Home Plus Hostel is one of the best hostels I have been in.

Homeplus was the last hostel I stayed in on my trip across Europe and I'm glad to say that I finished on a high! Initial difficulties with finding the hostel were soon forgotten after the warm and relaxed (yet professional) welcome I received from the staff upon arrival. Went on a great pub-crawl through Budapest with the hostel and met... More

We stayed with a couple of friends for a long weekend in HomePlus. I can honestly say that this hostel has the most welcoming environment I have ever stayed at.

I've traveled a good bit around Europe and stayed in many, many hostels, never really felt the need to write a review until now. Homeplus is a seriously top notch hostel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Home+ Hostel is your home away from home, plus a lot more. We are a comfortable, friendly, bright, safe and well equipped small hostel where you can stay in mixed larger rooms or smaller private rooms.We are located in the heart of Budapest, near the Danube river, between the Parliament and Margaret bridge, on the Pest side of the river. Margaret island is just a five minute walk where you can enjoy the outdoors, plus a lot more.Since we are located near the Margaret bridge, you can choose between discovering the city center or walking over the bridge to the more residential area where the royal castle is located. Don't forget to stop on the bridge to take the best 'Budapest at night' photo :)Our goal is to give you what we would like to get if we were travelling abroad and to make you feel at home. We do that by speaking good English, giving you sightseeing tips, providing you with all the info you may need, keeping the place clean and offering you a variety of pc, audio and video services.Your hosts, Andrew and company, we all love our work, we all love our guests and we like to see everybody happy. So, see you soon! ... more   less
