We stayed at Friends Hostel for 2 nights in a 4-bed room (there were 3 of us, but we booked the entire Aba-Novak room and had it for ourselves). The receptionist was friendly and helpful, but you should know that (at least during certain parts of the year) the hostel doesn't have 24-hour reception. If you come in late and... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and were delighted with the Friends Hostel. The location is exceptional, located right in the centre of everything! One minute walk to Oktagon metro station and within walking distance to most of Pest. The service was great & the people were really friendly. For the price, you cannot get better anywhere in Budapest!

We had a fantastic time at the hostel. It is tricky to find the first time, but once you get in the staff and rooms are great. Highly recommend!

I chose this hostel for the recommnedation of an other hostel where i already stayed, because they were fully booked but i don't mind. Friends hostel is extremely clean, very well organised, I was here in this february, the weather was snowy and mudy, but this hostel was still very clean. I liked all the decoration, the rooms, the kitchen... More

This hostel is very small but has a really very good location. Supermarkets, starbucks, KFC, burger king and many local resteraunts are just around. The staff is very friendly and the room as well as the facilities are tidy enough. And they have free wi-fi (although the speed is not stable) and a free computer for u to use. However... More

Nice hostel, very homely and clean. Good services provided: free towels, WiFi, hair dryer and basic cooking ingredients. The reseption girl was very helpful yet a bit dreamy :) I must give Miklos, the owner of the hostel, his due for trying to arrange our large group (where everyone booked separately) in a more rational and compact way. Thus i,... More

It was a good location, but when we got there in the evening they were booked up despite our reservations and despite that they saw the reservations on their computer along with our time of arrival (5pm). Your decision, but that sucked.

Dear Mr. Andrew Perlow, Your review is outrageous! You told only the first part of the story. You forgot to tell, that we DID PROVIDE the room for you, in a higher comfort Level room (you booked a room with shared bathroom, but we provided an ensuite room with own bath) in the 5th floor of our building (that place...

It was my first time to stay at a hostel and this hostel was a nice surprise. The hostel is easy to find. The location is great, near by the metro and tram station Oktogon. Shopping opportunities and restaurants are around the corner. I booked in a dorm. When I arrived, the staff told me I could stay in a... More
