Retox Backpacker Bar is run for backpackers by backpackers. If you want to meet like minded travelers and enjoy cheap shots and one of a kind cocktails on a backpacker's budget, we've got you covered.

Beer pong is played throughout the day and night and we hold a tournament every Saturday to crown a weekly champion. We are also the home of Alcoholympics, the greatest drinking competition you're likely to come across. And when the city quiets down on Sunday, we hold a massive backpacker party starting with our world famous Jager Train and ending in the wee hours of morning.

We know you want to experience all the great things Budapest has to offer, so let us help. Not only do we have all the information you need about all of the tours and events in Budapest, but you can also book everything from Spa trips to street art workshops and Caving adventures right at the bar, saving you time and the headache of trying to figure it out yourself.

We came to this amazing city just like you, to live big and share stories over a few drinks with the new friends we made along the way. Hopefully we can give you the same experience.

If you are looking for a crazy, fun place to meet travelers and cheap drinks, this is it! If you wish to stay there, it's also a hostel. Consequently, the place is a bit trashed. It could use a renovation and more frequent cleaning.

A great place to gather with friends or meet people. Rooms available to play drinking games, as well as a play table football. "Indoor" smoking area to keep your head dry when it's wet out! Bartenders are bit rude, but understandable when it's busy!

Anyone who has stayed at Retox knows that it's not a place you go for a quiet holiday. Nights out with the Retox gang are always mental! The Retox bar is where it all starts! It's great for the hostel crowd! Not so much for your parents ;)

Visited Retox bar as part of crawls and other events with the sister hostel Vitae. Great party atmosphere however drinks way overpriced considering it's supposed to be a backpacker bar. Cheaper to drink. Cheaper to drink in many other places. 2500 HUF for two vodka cokes.

Get ready to drink your face off. I recommend avoiding this place if you want peace and quite. You will not find it. It's a party spot. If you're looking for a great place to meet people and have a night to remember stop by retox.

The hostel itself is decent, stayed there one night few years ago...but the bar in the lobby and hostel staff....staff is mostly summer workers who just get wasted every night with other travellers and don't care if some of the bar staff steal your phone or something...only thing they say is "It's not our problem...". One of the bar staff... More

I stayed here for there nights and did the nightly activity every night. Saturday was the thermal springs party which was a 20 minute walk from the hostel (I think, you pre-drink a ton at the in-house bar) and it was amazing! Good, loud music, several different pools to choose from, loads of half-naked people. Sunday was the jagertrain where... More

Popped into here for a hour on a Saturday night. Extensive menu of drinks, anything from a beer to rainbow shots. Decorated in the style of a ruin bar. The chief guy behind the bar was really informative and useful with any questions we had about the city. The bar was full of young back packers all looking to get... More

We originally went to this bar hoping to join the "Stampede" bar crawl, but unfortunately we went on the wrong night - completely our mistake, misread the flyer! Nevertheless we arrived and there was another pub crawl going on, which began with a jagerbomb challenge - very cool to watch, youtube it! Seems like the kind of place where something... More

We came as part of a girls tour and it was perfect! Staff are fun, it looks awesome and good location! Definitely give the beer bikes a go! Clean, fun, loud hostel living up to its party name!! Lots of reasonably priced restaurants close by. If you want something quiet, go somewhere else!!
