This is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. Andi is an excellent host, and was consistently going beyond the call of duty for her guests. The place is a clean and modern apartment that has been converted into a hostel. Its a smaller hostel, with about 25 beds. It has a good common area to meet people, with... More

Location is great--5 mins or so from the metro station--just follow directions closely and watch for the door or you will miss it! There are plenty of restaurants, pubs, shops, etc. within walking distance. The staff goes out almost every night with any guests who want to join, and it's very much a sociable/friendly/party place. Everyone knows everyone and does... More

This hostel was really good fun - I ended up staying 5 nights! It's in a good location and a bit hard to find as it is just an apartment on a street, but the hostel itself is really good. The staff were super fun and friendly, showing you a map of what is in the area and recommending things... More

Maybe I was just lucky enough to be there in a good week, but in Paprika I´ve met the most amazing travelers and the most helpful staff. Paprika has a friendly and cozy atmosphere that you can only find in the smaller hostels. The staff show the hostel and talk about the city to each one that arrives, personally. My... More

Stayed here for two nights, and it seemed a comfy and sociable hostel, with guests and staff all friendly and happy to chat. The common room was a good format, with guests allowed to watch what they want on TV, play music etc, with the staff putting on evening activities each night that people can get involved with if they...

This place was great and i would recommend it to anyone looking for a very friendly hostel to meet people, especially if you are traveling alone. It is extremely clean and comfortable - with free internet and laptops for guests to use, a good lounge area and kitchen and the best shower ive ever used (this includes at home). There... More

The place is really clean and the hosts are really friendly, it's the best place you can go, specially if you are on your own because they will give you really useful information as well as night pub crawl.

Great location, came as a friend had already found this place (which was good as I would have gotten lost). Certainly lives up to its reputation, welcoming hosts and relaxed atmosphere. Honestly feels like staying at a friend's house. Clean, safe and great for newbies to the city as the ladies working there will make sure you get the best... More

Stayed here longer than expected, which was as much to do with the atmosphere and comfort at Paprika Hostel as it was with Budapest itself. Andi is a very good host, a mine of information, which is great for making the most of all the things to do in Budapest, and obviously has taken care in the details - well... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and shared the 6 bed. The beds were comfortable and our room and shared bathrooms were very clean. There were a good number of bathrooms around the hostel which meant we rarely had to wait to use the shower. We also paid a small deposit for towels and padlocks to lock our valuables away.... More
