You can sleep when you're dead so DON'T expect to get any here. Grandio, one of the only true party places on this earth that welcomes alcoholics, lost souls and arty people with talent but no direction and audiences, the living breathing creature that is constantly evolving, the place with a crazy cult following. On site bar, or beer sold by our staff, or the beer vending machine, or strawpedoes for breakfast.....these are all ways in which we fuel our thirsty and party hard guests (and staff). When the bar is shut, we move to the late room, the den of noise and naughtiness, with a sex bed and hammock depending on how adventurous you are. Every night our staff take you out on different activities in the city. These range from Backpackers fancy dress parties, to pub crawls, to live music nights, to karaoke nights, which take you to our personal favourite (plus some of the cheapest) bars in the city. If you feel like doing something a little different, never fear, as our staff have their finger on the pulse of the city's nightlife and are able to recommend differently nightly activities depending on your tastes. We have a live music venue in the basement, which has different acts on every night providing for all different tastes in music. Every Sunday they let us use it to showcase the talent we play host to with our own open-mic night in which we use our own instruments which include a plethora of guitars, drum kit, piano, violin, piano accordions, plus more as well as our very own sound technician! The staff have all been hand picked, which might seem a bit wild when they are walking around dressed up in dressing gowns with a beer in one hand, but this is the Grandio uniform, wear whatever makes you feel comfortable, or we got from the euro store that day. If you think you can challenge us, we'll probably rise to it, if not, we'll respect you for trying! The place itself is as wild as our staff and guests, decorated by street artists from around the world it houses a games room with table football and ping pong, the bar, a secret restaurant, which we could tell you about, but we'd have to kill you, a mix of rooms, some en-suite, with varying numbers of beds, and if you're lucky, a loo with a view. If you're not too hung over during the day we can organise daytime activities for you. The staff at Grandio are able to organise tours of the city plus other daytime activities such as paint balling or laser-tag. So the arty amongst you might appreciate the fact that all of our rooms, the outside and insides of everything are decorated by the best street artists of Budapest, and have been added to by global artists who liked what they saw and wanted to add to it. We have a band, called The Grandio Journals, which changes members every week when we practice in the open mic night, and we welcome all talent to perform here. As well as that, we are in a great location, especially if you like drinking as we are in the heart of the bar district, the only rules we have are about respect to our guests and neighbours, and other than that we want you to have a wild time, because we will be first! Please note, like the name says, this IS a party hostel, we go out every night, some people drink in the day time, there is a bar, sometimes sex, and a lot of fun. If you don't like these things, please try a calmer hostel, like Carpe Noctem Vitae. Please note: Regrettably, due to previous experience, we can no longer accept bookings for people over 40. If you have booked and are outside this age, please contact us and we will help find you alternative accommodation.

Loved it here. Nice bar. Cheap drinks. Best of all. THE STAFF! So friendly, gets everyone included. Can’t wait to visit again. Not for someone who wants a quiet place to say but highly recommended for party people!

By far the worst hostel I’ve ever been in my life. Extremely dirty facilities and bed, bad quality sheets and pillows, the staff was rude and made me feel really unwelcome there. The wifi barely worked. Don’t recommend even to my worst enemies.

This place is the absolute pits. It is genuinely revolting. The showers are hanging off the walls, sewerage coming up through the plug holes, beds hadn't been changed. Do yourself a favour and rent a good apartment, there's plenty that are very reasonably priced in central Budapest.

Great hostel and great staff. The best location for going out. The facilities (showers, toilets, etc. ) are cleaned daily (India even cleaned the dorm mirror yesterday) which is highly appreciated. A welcome shot is served to checking in guests.

We stayed for 2 nights at this hostel and our experience was very bad. First, the room was very dirty. The towels were already used as well as the bed linens. But the highlight was : no hot shower. Due to “too many people showering at the same time “ there was no hot water for everybody. Also disappointing was: the heater was not working and the windows didn’t close 100%. I stayed in party hostels before and they were much better than this one.
