I traveled solo in Budapest and spent two nights in Friends Hostel. They provide everything one needs for a few days. High-Speed wifi is available without extra charge and laundry, tea/coffee facilities are available at the cheaper cost. This hostel also offers you for quiet and confortable atmosphere although it is located in a busy street. Metro station (Oktogon M1),... More

Friends hostel was a most enjoyable stay. Located in the heart of Budapest, with everything you could want around you. I would recommend booking directly through their website as you can even arrange a transfer for a cheaper price than a taxi! If you're looking for a short city break, this hostel is perfect.

Friends Hostel is situated hidden away right in the centre of Budapest, with an inauspicious doorway and a creaky old lift up to the floor where the hostel is. We were welcomed and were very happy with the quiet, friendliness. We were there in winter and it was cosy and warm. The kitchen facilities were good, although we ate out... More

Each room is named after a Hungarian artist and his paintings adorn the walls of that room. The have a well stocked kitchen with options to make tea and... More

The perfect hostel if you want a calm and comfortable place close to the city center and to the public transport ! The rooms are clean, the staff is really cool and you'll find there everything you need for a few days.

The staff were all very nice and helpful, we rented bikes one day and unfortunatly the next day they had been taken but... More

Tucked in a building on a busy street off the posh Andrassy Avenue in Budapest, Friends Hostel is a revelation. As you step into its premise you feel that you have entered someone’s apartment. That’s the feeling that stays with you. It’s like a house, not a hotel. The first thing that is expected of you is to remove your... More

We slept in Friends Hostel for 3 nights. We booked accommodation in double person room with shared bathroom, but at the beginning we were told that there are some technical problems with the room we've booked, so in the end we were invited to accommodate at Apartament Deluxe (at the same price of course)! :) We were positively surprised, and...
