Inexpensive, wonderful staff and great location. I would stay again in the future, if I make it to Budapest. We stayed in the hostel. The room was large, as we had a double. Easy access to public transportation.

Pal's Hostel is in an incredible location - on the same street as St. Stephen's Basilica, a very direct & safe walk from the main metro station, only 10 minute walk to the main ruin pubs, & near plenty of good food. We had a basic double room, which was massive! We shared a bathroom & a big kitchen with... More

I rented a cozy and stylish apartment from Pal's. Unfortunately the internet didn't work and they determined that the problem could not be fixed during our stay. Since I have to have internet to run my own business when I am traveling this was a big problem. They immediately offered us another apartment which was less stylish but totally clean,... More

Bargain! So cheap. We stayed in the apartment right in front of St. Stephens Basilica so we could not have asked for a better location! Slap bang in the middle of everything. The apartment had plenty of space, a very cute little balcony and great views of the Basilica. The staff were very helpful and gave us all the information... More

Went for a long weekend with a group of friends. Wasn't expecting much because the accommodation for the weekend was so cheap however when we arrived we couldn't believe our luck - the apartment was huge and really well maintained. The view from our balcony was amazing as it was directly opposite a beautiful church. Location was perfect with shops,... More

Pal’s Hostel in is a great location next to the Basilica for a stay in Budapest, we found it within easy walking distance of lots of the sights and good transport connections when required. Welcomed by the hostel on arrival, they could not have been more helpful and gave us some great information to kick start our break! The apartment... More

Our apartment had kitchen with fridge and freezer, two big rooms with a double bed each one, a huge living room with two single beds and two sofas , TV, DVD player and WIFI. Moreover the room had two toilets and bathrooms. Considering the price of... More

Great location, close to metro and trams. The kitchen had everything you need to cook simple meals (no oven in our appt, but we saw another that did have one), just be aware there are no spices for use other than salt unlike many hostel kitchens. The staff were very nice and helpful in suggestions and looking up info when... More

Simply put this is the best hostel I have stayed in! €15 a night for a private apartment over looking the Center of the city, they could have charge €100 and I would have paid it...it's that good. Wonderful staff, would I stay again...I can't wait to get back!

I ended in this hostel the same way as in Budapest - accidentally, and what I got was far beyond what I expected. Huge double room with kitchen and bathroom shared only with another private room (which was empty so we had entire area for ourselves), super extra-nice staff members with great knowledge about city, always happy to help you...
