We were a bit reluctant when we first arrived at the hostel as it doesn't look much. We were welcomed by really friendly staff who checked us in and took us to our room which was just as we expected it to be. There is lockers to secure your items, the beds were comfy, all we needed! I can't sing... More

Arrived in Budapest with high expectations after hearing so much about it. When we arrived at the station we we're less than impressed and confused by the currency. Upon arrival at the hostel we were greeted by some of the most friendly staff I have ever experienced. We were taken up to our room and told that there was a... More

I had the best time here. Super friendly and helpful staff. I traveled alone, but I met super cool people the very first minute I stepped in to their hostel. I highly recommend this hostel if you want to discover the nightlife of Budapest. If you're there over the weekend go to the spa-party, also follow them on the pubcrawls!... More

I prefer this hostel is 100% for the young backpackers because young staff , drinking parties , daily movie , pool table and all. Staff is very helpful like,our family and they... More

I enjoyed my stay at the High 5 hostel. it was very sociable, They had drinking games every night and a free bar crawl every night other than Saturday when there was a pool party in one of the thermal pools which was amazing. I wouldn't recommend going unless you are planning on going out as it could be hard... More

Whilst it advertises itself as a party hostel, and generally lived up to this reputation during our 3 night stay, the total lack of cleanliness throughout the hostel and the absolutely disgusting bathroom facilities were enough to put me off ever returning. The smell throughout the whole hostel was enough to put people off eating. Whilst most of the staff... More

Felt so comfortable and the hostel seemed to attract other likeminded, laid back backpackers. All the staff were really helpful and did well to make sure there was stuff going on every night. Felt really homey and there was enough facilities for everyone staying. Great place to stay if you want to meet other people and have things to do... More

Great hostel - we were greeted and made to feel very welcome from the start. The staff are all fun and friendly, and often seemed to be permanent residents rather than staff, which made it very homey. There were a couple of hiccups in our stay, such as a bag of washing being mislaid. Fortunately, there was time for the... More

When we arrived the guy at reception warned us that this was a party hostel where people would be drinking and having sex in the rooms. Obviously these things happen in hostels but it was strange that he was advertising it. Nothing like this actually happened and to be honest it wasn't much of a party hostel while we were... More

There is a laid back 'party vibe' here. Room was okay, a bit of noise but I've had worse. The living room was nice with a projector for watching films. Chilled with the owner and met a few cool people. Bed linen could probably do with being replaced, a few suspicious stains! I didn't go on any of the nights... More
