I had never been to Budapest before and I loved how informative they're and welcoming, The moment I arrived the manager Shari was working and she immediately made me feel at ease she told me to relax have some coffee and set your bag aside.During the check in she was so informative and told me all about the local things...

I stayed at home plus in December and whilst it was a few months ago I felt like I should write a review because this was honestly the best hostel I stayed in whilst backpacking through Europe for 5 months. Home plus is in the best location it's a 5 minute walk from the Parliament Building, across the road from... More

HomePlus is the best hostel I've had the pleasure to stay at. Positioned perfectly next to Margret Bridge it's connected to both main tram lines which makes it really easy to access any part of the city. The hostel provides really good FREE dinners 3 times a week which were a welcome break from the usual travellers fare and it... More

There are plenty of good things about this hostel but unfortunately the few bad things outweighed them. The hostel is in a great location, close to Margaret island and parliament and everything is in easy walking distance. I walked to the Castle and church easily! The staff on arrival were helpful and nice. The free dinners that they advertise does... More

I spent a few nights here over new year (late 2013/early 2014), and really enjoyed my stay. The hostel's in a nice location, just a few minute's walk from the parliament building or margaret island, and it's also easy to get to the main bar/club areas. The hostel facilities were good - comfortable beds, good-sized lockers, kitchen, hot showers, free... More

One of the better hostel experiences. This place had a good vibe. I liked how close it was to Margaret Island (under 5 minute walk). My biggest complaint is that the walls weren't very good at isolating noise, therefore sleeping could be a bit tough if you're a light sleeper. The staff is really nice/helpful. The setup lends itself to... More

As I've never been to Budapest, Hungary before I wasn't really sure what to expect. After arriving by train into Budapest from Salzburg, the instructions to the hostel were easy to follow. Once arriving, we were warmly greeted by reception. The receptionist spent at least 25 minutes recommending things to do in the city and unique places to visit. The... More
