We went as a group of 4 students staying in one room. It was a great hostel with very friendly and helpful staff. The views from the balcony of the Basilica was amazing, as it was right outside- so an excellent location. The rooms were spacious, and facilities were sufficient for necessities as we were out sightseeing and eating out... More

我們訂了一室公寓,公寓還算不錯比預期的更寬敞並且離景點非常近,工作人員也很親切,只是瓦斯熱水器裝在浴室裡有點令人擔心安全問題,公寓就在大教堂旁邊,從陽台上可以看到,只是教堂鐘樓從一大早就開始敲鐘打擾睡眠,另外公寓一樓是餐廳和BAR,週末夜晚相當吵。 We rent a apartment for family trip. The apartment is nice and the staff is friendly, the room we stayed is at the 1st floor by the street side, the ground floor is a bar which makes noise till night, the basilica is really closed but the church bell ringed from early morning by hourly, it's disturb our sleep....

The private rooms are in another building, a few doors up from the main hostel. The room was spacious and comfortable, with a shared bathroom and kitchenette. The best thing about this hostel is the brilliant location (right next to St Stephens basilica) and the excellent service from the staff. Breakfast is not included in the price, but free tea...

Me and my husband had a reservation at Pal's from12-16 September 16. On our arrival at the place in late evening (we were reaching by a train from Vienna) when we reached the reception, extremely exhausted we were informed that due to an overbooking we were being accommodated in another place, just 10min away.

I appologise for the overbooking! Very sorry, it's our fault. Happens once in a year... but I know it doesn't help... Sorry! On the other hand I suppose they weren't aware of the difference between a hotel and a hostel. All the buildings in the downtown of Budapest are old. The apartment was freshly renovated. Clean and neat with A/C... More

Me and two friends stayed here for three nights at the beginning of our Interrailing trip. We couldn't have asked for anything better. We paid for the transfer from the airport with Pals which was only €24 for all of us and the transfer was there within 5 minutes of getting off the plane. When we got near to the... More

This place was amazing. The hostel is a series of apartments all around the main square right in the city center so the location is unbeatable. The room was massive with a great common area and full kitchen. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The place was also spotless. Would recommend this place for sure

Brilliant communication from before even arriving in Budapest. Given my desired type of accommodation and excellent receptionists. Facilities in room basic but perfectly clean and comfortable. Bathroom just next door and fully working kitchen and washing machine downstairs. Comfortable lounge. Very happy with choice and would return with husband or friends.

Our room was clean and spacious and the shared facilities were spotless. Staff were pleasant and helpful and the location on St Stephen's plaza was ideal. Correspondence with the hostel before arrival helped us find our way easily. Thanks, Barbara.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
