We stayed in our own two bedroom apartment with a fully equiped kitchen and a beautiful living area. The best thing was our view over st stephens basilica. You would have thought we were paying a fortune to stay in this beautiful apartment but it was such good value for money! If in budapest stay here! Amazing.

It was a pleasant surprise - it felt much like a home. The staff were incredible, any queries we had were answered sharply and in a caring manner. The location was perfect. 30 minutes from the station to walk was reasonable, but only a 5 minute walk to the chain bridge and the Danube. With the cathedral so close also,... More

I stayed here last year in a two for five nights. On arrival the staff were great, they had pre-organised packs with information about the city and they took the time to circle restaurants locals go to on the map! The apartment we stayed in was a short walk from the main hostel building (one street away - 2 minutes... More

exceeded all expectations. amazing location right by the Basilica and a stone's throw from the Chain Bridge. great price for what you're getting (simple double bed) and staff are very informative upon arrival. extras in our room included towels and a fan which was ideal with the hot weather and dirty laundry after 2 weeks of travelling.

We stayed in an apartment owned by Pals hostel, and it was fantastic. We were overlooking St Stephens Basilica, and the apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped. The building and apartment had been grand in former days, and we loved the high ceilings and features like a giant bath! It did take us a little while to locate the... More

This hostel is great. It is in an apartment block spread out in different rooms. It is a brilliant location right in the heart of the Pest side close to all tourist attractions and nightlife. The staff were really helpful and gave us lots of advice on where to go etc. Our private double room was spacious, simple and clean... More
