“Brilliant Hostel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Took a while to find but when we did we were welcomed with open arms by everyone there, guests included! An amazing family atmosphere where everyone is instantly friends with all the guests and staff, it's hard to tell them apart! Every night they gather the hostel together for drinks and communal nights out which was really good. Tim and the other staff are very friendly and helpfull. Air conditioned rooms and lots of showers and bathrooms available. Free use of the computers and fine kitchen. Would reccomend to any young people staying in Budapest.

Tiger Tim's is a great hostel with an amazing atmosphere. Tim is a very nice, friendly and helpful person, as are all of the staff that work there. Every night they go out and take you to bars and clubs, or do other activities during the day, you are welcome to join them or just stay back in the hostel and relax.
Facilities are great, the air con in the dorm was a blessing!
I would definetely go back to Budapest just to stay there at the hostel!

Tiger Tims is the PERFECT hostel. Everything about it is fantastic; location, facilities, staff, bathrooms, rooms and so on. The staff are the coolest bunch of people ever, so friendly and really great at encouraging every guest to take part in the activities they offer (drinking games, pubs, clubs, raves at waterparks..) It's clean and the air conditioning is great. It feels like you're with family from the moment you arrive.

Stayed here in may 2012. The rooms are clean and well kept up, and the hostel has a great common room and kitchen for community use. The best part about it is it's staff, Tim and friends, and the people who stay here. There is a great community atmosphere here where everyone feels pretty comfortable around one another after a night or two. While it is cozy and comfortable, it definitely is a party hostel! They lead pub crawls to bars, clubs and ruin clubs every night, and drinking, while not forced, is heavily encouraged with drinking games starting nightly around 9pm. It was always a fun atmosphere, and Tim was so incredibly helpful during our trip! From giving restaurant and store recommendations to telling us the best deals in the city for tourism to taking care of us all weekend. Loved it, would absolutely return if I ever find myself in Budapest again!

Everything a traveller should look for. A friendly and knowledgeable staff, clean beds, bathrooms, and a free pubcrawl evey night to some of the best bars in Budapest. A special thanks to Vodka Dan, Andrew, Nina, and especially the man himself, Tiger Tim, for putting up with us three smelly canadians for four amazing nights. If you're looking to be with good people and meet friends almost instantly this is the place for you. If not, then im sure that the cleanliness, the flat screens and kitchen- not to mention the bean bag chairs- will lure you in to stay for much longer than planned.

Stayed September 2009. Fantastic location and really helpful staff but despite claiming not to be a party hostel, this was the biggest party hostel I have been too so far. Great if that's your thing. Not so great if you want to be sleeping at 1am on a Monday night. This is despite the best efforts of the hostel staff to ensure all party people leave the hostel by 10pm.

Amazing staff, really helpful and friendly. Anything you need to know they can help you with. Clean very well priced rooms, central location. Great place to meet people and great way to experience the nightlife of Budapest if you're traveling alone and are unsure of where to go. Absolutely the best hostel to stay in Budapest.
