Wow! This was definitely one of the best (likely the best!) hostel I've ever been to. Located in central Budapest, walking distance to every major tourist spot is very good (10-25 Minutes). Staff is super friendly, very accomodating. Rooms are furnished very nice and were always clean, same as the bathrooms. As the don't have that many beds I can only recommend to book some days in advance, otherwise you will probably miss a great, great hostel!

My boyfriend and I took the double private bedroom for $56 USD/night during our stay in late July. At first glance we immediately thought the room was dingy and the furniture was old and stale. We needed a fan at night to keep us cool and there was an empty 2nd floor of the room that could have been renovated into someting super cool. Home Made was also quite difficult to find at first, they really need to get a huge sign on the door with clear directions. Alot of people get lost just from the front door to the actual entrace of hostel. However cons aside, the place eventually grew on us and I ended up loving the place for its quietness at night, super friendly staff, extreme cleanliness, and its amazing location to the 4,6 line. This place is perfect for travellers who love the non-modern, homey, laid back hostels with tons of personality.

By accident we've ran into this lovely little hostel. While just having entered the place we were quite stunned by Eszter, probably the 2nd prettiest and funiest hostelhost we've met this trip ;-)
The whole place is really atmospheric; in the commonroom you can have a nice chat or listen to some music; there's a wellequiped kitchen; the sanitation was more than we'd wished for; great bars are within walking distance; and the whole staff is in for a good laugh and seems inspired to make your stay a succes.
Thanks!

I recently stayed at this hostel and had a wonderful experience. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and even cooked dinner for us one night! The beds were comfy and the location was great. There are only 3 bathrooms for the entire hostel, so that was the only bad thing. I would highly recommend staying here if you go to Budapest!

Traveled with a group of 8, once we walked in we were instantly greater by the fantastic staff who gave us maps, hints, pointers and suggestions. Rooms were cozy, clean and safe. The location can not be beat, right off the metro station and a short walk or subway rode anywhere. Budapest is lovely. Can't wait to go back, and when I do I will stay here again!!!! A little difficult to find (they need a bigger sign) but overall was a lovely stay. Can I say great staff again?!?!?!!! What a gem of a city.

I've traveled to 24 countries. Home Made Hostel remains the one where I had most fun ever. The staff ensures that everyone is warmly welcomed and taken care of. They know the city very well and can help you find whatever you would like to do or see. The hostel is conveniently located within walking distance to everything there is to do and see. If traveling solo, you will love this place and meet tons of new people. The hostel organizes outings at bars - MUST DO! The beds and locker space was fine. The bathrooms were not renovated but worked fine. This hostel is best for 18-30 year olds, as most people like to go out at night.

the hostel is very well located and the staff is always available to help. I slept very well, the bed was amazingly comfortable and, even though my room was right next to the kitchen, there was not to much of a noise, Don't know if I got lucky or if it is always like this. In budapest there are no middle ground, there are hostels and party hostels. If you are not looking for the second, i totally recommend this one. Also, enjoy the bar tour organized by the hostel. Is very nice
