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. The staff is very helpful and friendly, and it is amazing that they join the guests for the pubcrawls - which I recommend for everyone, so much fun!! The hostel... More

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. I originally booked for 2 nights but extended my stay to a week. From the moment I arrived the name made sense..I felt right at home . It's a... More

We stayed 2 nights at HomePLus, it is a very nice little hostel, close to the Centre easily accessible by tram. Staff was really friendly always available and the hostel itself is really well-organised with a colorful common room where we met other travellers and had fun togheter.

There is no better way to get to know your hostel mates and feel at home than a free Hungarian dinner in the hostel including a home distilled sligovica, served by really friendly staff. All the rest (place next to danube river & tram stop, rooms, beds, bathrooms etc... ) is fine also, but I cannot remember having such a... More

1. The location of the hostel is strategic: it is right beside tram lines connecting you to all major attractions and only 2 stops away from metro lines (via tram). You can't be staying in a more convenient location! Although the entrance may not be too obvious at first glance, it becomes very easy to navigate after one try. 2.... More

I stayed in the Home Plus Hostel for four nights last week, I can honestly say it is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in; all down to the people I met in the hostel and staff!

I was only there for a night as my preferred hostel was booked but it was a nice little hostel and had a real homey feel. I did get lost for 2 hours trying to find it in the dark though. I walked passed the door probably 10 times but couldn't see any signage or proper door numbers except for... More

The city is awesome and the hostel is really great! Very nice and efficient staff, a good atmosphere, great pub crawl, delicious dinner with palinka (the local drink), there is nothing to complain about! The hostel offer many facilities as break fast, wifi, hair dryer, towels, a common room where you get to know cool people from all over!

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
