I highly recommend you this hostel if you are going to Budapest. First, its location is great, you can reach everywhere by foot. Second, it is clean and comfortable, it gives you your own home feeling. Third, staff are helpful and kind. I hope you enjoy Budapest :)

I spent one week in Budapest and stayed at Animation City Hostel. I think this is the best hostel in Budapest according to price and location. Very friendly and nice staff. Budapest offers a lot of sight sings and it`s a bit hard to go around the city by foot. You can rent bikes here only for 2000 HUF and... More

December in Budapest is not warm but I was expecting the "superior" room with "private bathroom" to be warm. Wasn't. And they didn't fix it either. By the way: the "private" bathroom is NOT ensuite. Just that it can be closed with a key. Otherwise, modern decorated. But small and cramped room. Not worth the money. The room was part... More

This is value for money. It's old but clean, but our room required a lift plus stairs which are quite narrow. No big signs you will need to look for street number followed by building resident list to find reception. Great location. Very helpful staff.

Budapest and this hostel were great! We wouldn't have found half the good things in this city if we weren't for the help from one of the women at reception whose name we sadly can't remember. She helped us a lot and even changed the lock in room 5 for us. Thanks for such a great stay! :D

I booked a 6 bed dorm for my family to start our trip but we were given a lovely apartment which was a surprise which delighted my family. We arrived late at night and enjoyed seeing how well located we were with lots of great restaurants, facilities and tourist sights nearby when we woke up. Victoria was very friendly and... More

Although we stayed there for one night, we really enjoyed our accommodation. Reception and especially Gabriel was amazingly helpful. (Best Customer Relations Ever). The hostel supplied us with an apartment in Budapest. At that apartment we shared toilets with another room. The location was pretty awesome, really in the city center. You really feel like you are staying at your... More

We stayed for 3 nights in July and were happy to book again for August when we return to Budapest. We arrived at 1am and were met and shown to our spacious accommodation by a friendly member of staff. Everything was lovely, we even had some tea and coffee available in a basket with something white in a jar. Sadly... More

We stayed in animation city hostel for 6 nights and are very happy we picked this one for our stay. The staff is really friendly, gives you nice tips and always takes the time to answer your questions. At almost any time there is someone in the hostel, we arrived around 01:00 AM but this was no problem at all.... More
