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...

Stayed here for 3 nights with friends in January in a 3 bed private room, right on the doorstep of St Stephens Basilica which could be seen from our balcony. Room was very spacious and for the price we paid was much more than expected. Workers from pals were a great help, met us upon arrival and provided us with... More

Great place to stay in Budapest! Stayed in a double and were pleasantly surprised to be put in a large one bedroom apartment overlooking St Stephen's Basilica and the Christmas markets. The apartment was great - clean, bright, warm, spacious, cooking facilities, large bathroom with large bath. Nice and central. Great value. Wifi worked well. We had a lovely private... More

As all the reviews have said, top location! Just wanted to add that if you're looking to stay at Christmas time there are markets right outside the apartment. We are from Australia and the markets are like nothing we've ever seen before. A+++

This hostel far exceeded our expectations! I was traveling with 3 friends and we booked a 4 bedroom private apartment. I was stunning! And the location can't be beat! Our room faced one of the big beautiful cathedrals and was close to everything! The room was very clean with nice towels provided, with a full kitchen, large bathroom, nice beds... More

I was travelling on my own for the first time, but Pal's Hostel turned out to be the most appropriate choice! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, they welcomed me as an old friend and they went out of their way to make my journey really smooth. They could give me really useful tips about the city and what... More

I have booked with Pal again and again it was the best choice. We have stayed in a one bedroom apartment just 10 meters from St.Stephen Bazilica... it's so convenient- walking distance everywhere (even Buda side is just 20 minutes away). The apartament has all you need - fully equipped kitchen, spacious bathroom, wi-fi, and a separatem bedrooom. It's silent... More

From my initial contact with the staff at Pals I have received top service and help. I had seen the different apartments on the website and emailed to ask if they had a suitable apartment for the 6 of us. They informed me very quickly that they could by placing extra single beds into the Classy apartment to allow it... More
