“BEST HOSTEL EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

If you want the all round hotel this is the one for you! We walked in and instantly were offered tea and coffee, the staff and residence jumped at the chance to help us and make us feel at home. The place feels alive with so many interesting residence and the manager, Johny is the nicest guy you could meet. He helped us to no end and we have all left vowing to return as soon as we can! You wount want to sleep you'll be so busy meeting new people and having the time of your life! The location is perfect right in the centre, and with loads of bars and restaurants about.
I cannot rate this place highly enough!!! You will never want to leave!

stayed here one night while in budapest. was a very nice hostel, spacious with plenty of clean showers/toilets. friendly staff. marked 4/5 on sleep quality purely cos it does get quiet noisy... but its what you'd expect from something called 'retox party hostel' imo. definitely worth checking out while in budapest. bar crawls every night are great.

When I first heard that I was coming to a party hostel in Budapest, I was a little nervous...but Retox provided me with THE BEST stay I could have asked for in Budapest. The staff is amazing, and took us under their wing immediately! Not only did they show us the must-dos around the city (and a great Free Walking Tour), but they showed us the BEST time!! We were able to have a great sail on the Danube with them seeing the sights as night, as well as a bar crawl across Budapest to all the best and trendiest bars. The hostel itself is great! Not too loud, and very clean! Budapest would not have been as amazing without the Retox Party Hostel Crew!

I came to Budapest not knowing exactly what to expect and having traveled around Western Europe a bit in 2010 I found the taxi ride from the airport there a bit sketchy. However entered Retox I instantly felt at ease and invited. The staff know the area like the back of there hand and can basically plan out day trips for you on the fly, they'll take you on pub crawls and really show you the area. It was the best hostel I've ever stayed at, while its a party hostel I never had a complaint about anything, I went during low season but I still recon that its pretty calm during high season. I really can't recommend this place enough, heres a youtube video I made during my stay there http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28B8OM7M3cs&feature=g-upl&context=G29aaf8dAUAAAAAAACAA , all the places I went including pubs,clubs, tourist attractions, markets etc. were recommended by the staff and just perfectly worked out.

Room Tip: If you have a group of 6 or less you might be able to get your own bunk room.

We arrived in Budapest after a really long journey, and our friend had told us about this hostel, so we headed straight there...such a good decision!!!!

Really cool place, chilled out and great staff/people staying there. By far the best hostel I have stayed in in Europe!!!!

Highly recommend.

Was meant to stay a night, ended up staying six weeks and would have stayed much longer if I could have. The combination of amazing, helpful staff, fun (semi) organised nights and fantastic location made my time at Retox unbeatable. I absolutely recommend you book a night (or 20), although be careful because you will never want to leave!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
People who travel to Budapest don’t come for the clean streets, the peaceful nights, the immaculate and modern buildings...they go to Vienna for that. People who want to experience the grit, the underground, the alternative, the unseen, undiscovered, the hidden, they come to Budapest and somewhere behind an abandoned building with graffiti on the doors…… you’ll find Retox guests and staff. If you can’t work the name out - you probably shouldn’t come. If you can’t stand a morning view of a concrete jungle, stay at Grandio where there is a leafy jungle. If you want clinical clean-cut and pristine, this is not the place for you. But if you want to be part of a ‘new’ hostel scene where you walk into an overwhelming sense that stories from here are going to be passed onto your grand kids, (if you make it that long)… then join us at Retox. The name says it all, we like life, we don’t think too much about the future, but we live for the moment. We hit it hard and fast at night, and we wait a moment or two before considering the day. We do make it out sightseeing, but not to take photos and send postcards, but to admire views. We go to museums not to please our parents, but to be absorbed in culture. We party hard, not because it’s new and exciting, but because having fun is a much a better idea than not. We meet people not so we are not alone, but so that we are part of a community we never want to leave. Also, it’s an awesome place with heart stopping artwork, in the heart of the bar district (with three bars on our street alone) and a few minutes walk from some of the major sights and with public transport everywhere we look!). Please Note: Retox is a party hostel so there may be loud and drunk people as residents. If this is not ok, please contact us and we will find more suitable accommodation. Carpe Noctem Vitae is a calmer hostel. We also cannot accept booking from people over 40, but groups are welcomed! ... more   less
