We were a group of student, around 150 people from Prague. Basically the whole hostel was booked for our group. This hostel is the worst hostel we've have ever been to. The bathroom was not cleaned and the shower was still full of hair from previous guests. I basically did not move in the shower, tried to not touch the... More

This hostel is one of those cases where you just have a good time a pretty average hostel. I am going to give it a good review because me and a friend made our time there a good one! It's a good location, you gotta drink in Instant right over the road. The staff are pretty lazy and act like... More

Stayed for a while. Met many females traveling alone that stayed here also, saying that they felt a little uneasy about the guys that worked there. A very close knit group that seem to like to do everything together. The highlight of living there for free seems to be the group of girls that like to travel. As soon as... More

We recently stayed in hi 5 for a long weekend for a lads holiday and found the hostel to be very disappointing. We were located in what used to be in the old hostel on the top floor. Although we'd booked well in advance for a 10 bed dorm, the 9 of us were split into 3 different rooms all... More

Great way to save some cash but the common area always felt a little dank and the kitchen equipment left much to be desired. The advertised dinners but that´s not the case. Breakfast just means some cereal. Having the pool table available was nice. There´s beer pong everynight and the pub crawls to the ruin bars were pretty good. Be... More

Recently stayed here as part of a stag party holiday and had great time here and in Budapest.   The location was fantastic, being very central and right in the middle of the party area of Budapest.   The rooms where very clean by hostel std’s the only downside was we had a massive stairs to climb to get to...

I came here on the recommendation of some travellers I met in Prague. Hi 5 sounded awesome as it was across the road from the biggest nightclub in Budapest and apparantly was a party hostel. I stayed here on a Friday and Saturday night and the place was dead, this is NOT a solo traveller friendly hostel. There is an... More

We stayed in the Hi 5 Hostel for four nights in June 2014 as a group of five in a six-bed room. The hostel was explained to us at check-in as a semi-party hostel. Essentially, you can be as loud as you like downstairs in the reception/lounge/kitchen area, but bedrooms are for quiet time. Sounded fair to us. The room... More

I keep forgetting to write this review, but I have to because Hi 5 was so so class. I was meant to only be in Budapest for 2 nights as I was only travelling around Europe for 2 weeks. I enjoyed my time at Hi 5 so much that I wanted to stay more nights. This is down to a... More

A great hostel with a vibrant atmosphere and very friendly staff. We planned on staying for two nights but it took us seven nights before we actually left. There was food served at a very reasonable price and great drinking games every night. The facilities were in good condition and the hostel itself was clean. If you want to party... More
