The hostel has such an amazing environment. The owner Tim organizes drinking games every night it's a super social hostel. Perfect for the solo travelers. The building itself is run down, but the beds are pretty comfortable, bathrooms are relativity clean. The location is pretty good it's right near a metro. The staff are awesome and really helpful If you're... More

While staying at Tiger Tim's, we were greeted warmly, shown a map of the city and given suggestions for what to see/do. Make sure to read the directions to find the hostel carefully, or else you may be wandering around for a while. We stayed in a private room, which is in a separate building and on a different street... More

You're right at home when you're at Tim's. By far the best hostel in Europe that I've ever stayed at. Great location, Tim gives you the best tips and will sell you cheap tickets to the baths so you can skip the queue, tells you about the must do's in Budapest. Everyone in the hostel are so social and friendly,... More

It's a cozy place with very good conditions. It is near the metro station. The staff are really nice and helpful. The amazing thing about this hostel is that it's made so that you have to meet and talk with the people who are staying there which is something most hostels don't have. You feel at home here. Thank you... More

I came here on the recommendation on another traveller, and I'm so glad I did. I was traveling solo and because of the set up, I was able to easily meet other solo travellers. Tim encouraged everyone to sit together, he had games, planned a movie night, and was always around for a chat and some recommendations. It was kind... More

It seems that Tiger Tim's is one of the only hostels in the world that actually has working Wi-Fi and showers with generous flow. We were there on the last couple days of Sziget. The staff were really friendly, provided us with great tips for where to go and the hostel was also clean. At the heart of the city... More

The one thing every backpacker want to feel when they are travelling around Europe is a "welcome home" this is exactly what Tim feels like. Beside that fat that Tim himself is a lovely guy from my native country Ireland. Tiger Tim is a very welcoming and social place with free pub crawls most night and great people both by... More

This hostel is very social, with pub crawls running from the hostel every night. The guys that work there and run the pub crawl are so accommodating and friendly so I'd definitely recommend going if you're up for meeting new people and socialising. What I would say though is that the hostess working there is very intimidating and rude, she... More

A pretty great hostel if you're looking for a relaxed atmosphere and nothing too fancy. Very youth orientated with a free pub crawl each night going to the popular ruin bars starting at the hostel with pre-drinks, this helps you to get to know a lot of the other people in the hostel with a good atmosphere and drinking games....
