“Great hostel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

Clean, warm, cozy hostel located in the very center of Budapest. Rooms are big. There are also kitchen and laundry.
The closest subway station is
Oktogon.
Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Strongly recommend.

And of course prices are very reasonable.

OK, it's a hostel so it's not top-luxury - but for being a hostel, it's great. Nice, clean, stocked kitchen, laundry, no curfew and well placed close to Metro, food store and sights. (And Starbucks and KFC if you're the perverse kind of traveller). Most importantly, the staff is generous and helpful.

It's a bit tricky to find - trust that the address is right. There's a small metal plate by the door with instructions.

I came to Budapest for the first time ever and got the most warm and homely welcome at the Friends Hostel. Hostel was better than I imagined, everything was really clean and working. Room (female dorm for five) was cozy and I had nice people to live with. Location is great to explore the city by walk (which I reccomend) or by the public transportation (the stops are just next to the Hostel). Staff is helpfull, friendly and fun. I got the great inside tips about Budapest from them. I can definitely recommend the Friends Hostel warmly to everyone!

The place is located in the heart of the city. Metro, tram, supermarket,in 2 min walk. The cleanest hostel we have ever stayed. Staff would do anything to make your stay more comfortable. We spent there three nights, really enjoyed. I highly recommend this place. Special thanks to Jack.

Very good position, close to public transport, room and bathroom very clean. Staff was very friendly and even refunded two nights as unfortunately I had to leave earlier. One of the best experience I ever had in a hostel.

Ottima posizione, vicino ai mezzi pubblici, molto pulito. Personale gentile e molto cordiale, mi hanno persino rimborsato due notti già pagate visto che ho dovuto partire prima del previsto. Consigliato.

This hostel was the best I've stayed in. Extremely clean, very friendly and comfortable. The staff went out of their way to help me find a parking spot for my car and the room was the biggest I've ever had in a hostel.

Very good hostel with family-like environment. Nice rooms, kitchen, showers. Everything for very good price and in the center of Budapest! George is very nice guy who can help you with anything you need to know about city, tickets etc. No problem to come and leave whenever you need. Just say and it is not a problem.
