This is not a hostel, it is a house with few rooms above a bar. rooms are very small and beds are crunched in every room beds were very old, no clean sheets... common area is too small, you can't mingle with other guests...take this only the city is out of hostels

The location of Grund Hostel is great, the building lovely and the prices low. My dorm was clean and satisfactory. However, there is zero atmosphere. There is no kitchen/communal area to meet other guests - unless you count the enormous bar and club downstairs, which was separate from the hostel. The noise is an issue too - on my last... More

Hostel grund is about two metro train journeys away from the main train station in Budapest. It is a large beer garden, with large inside bar/ nightclub. Has a good atmosphere, however it is more aimed at locals ( our second day there was a wedding party in the evening) the rooms are average and not as bad as other... More

When I was at Grund Hostel my first reaction was "wow, what a beautiful place". But then a minute later my opinnion changed. I lived in a 4 bed dorm and all the beds was dirty and full of short black curly hairs. Outside our window there was construction work from 7 am to 16 pm. They where hammering and... More

I stayed in a 5 bed mixed dorm with an ensuite. Upon arrival the bar downstairs was in full swing having arrived on a Friday night. The guy from reception took us to our room and out of the 5 beds even he could not distinguish which ones were the clean new ones, to the ones which were occupied. The... More

Cheap but would not recommend. Our room was dirty, damp and dingy, and was located essentially in a building site, with workmen waking us up with their tools and music at 7am. No aircon and the room was boiling even though it wasn't particularly hot weather when we were there. The bar was cheap but empty most of the time... More

Last week we went to Budapest and decided to stay here because it was the cheapest and nearest for that price to the centre (20-30 minutes walking). The price was really good-> 6€ per night,and the bar outside the hostel was so cute! Everynight there was full of people,after 5 pm they were doing barbecue and there was place to... More

This hostel was a bargain at 6euros a night and this is reflected in the distance that it is from the centre of budapest. However, the city is only 2 stops on the metro with a stop a couple of minutes walk from the hostel and only costing 250ft each way. The rooms were clean and had everything you needed,... More

Cheap, quite good location, clean- everything what students can expect :) Every weekend party downstairs. Wi-fi is not working inside the rooms, only lounge room downstairs. I can fully recommend the hostel and whole Budapest- beautiful place!

While studying abroad in Britain three friends and I decided to pick up and fly to Budapest for a long weekend. Grund is the first hostel I've ever stayed in and honestly, it's set the bar extraordinarily high for any other hostel. First of all, the price was EXCELLENT and when we got there at 9 pm, tired from a... More
