“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2011

Hands down the best hostel experience I have had this far. Right from the beginning you feel like family when the hostel workers sit you down after arriving and show you not only a map but also point out all the cool places to go. And especially being a solo traveller it is nice to have people be so friendly and even invite you out to go dancing. The actually hostel it's self is so unique and cool with painted pictures all over the walls and bean bags. The beds are comfy and there are personal lockers available in the room if you want them. And free fast wifi which is always a plus. I would not only definitely stay here again but I would recommend it to anyone going to Budapest.

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed cool

A truly brilliant hostel. Fantastic if travelling solo as the atmosphere is very social and they show you the best places to go out. I came here and made friends for life, it was truly an experience I will never forget. I booked 4 nights but was having such a great time that I extended it to a week. Even then it was not enough, I will be back.

The Loft had been an amazing place to stay! Ferci is a great host and cooked an amazing Hungarian meal and took guests out out see his Blues band where he dazzled on guitar. Gina and Emelie, the girls helping out, are also sweethearts and very helpful and friendly. The hostel itself is really cosy, comfortable and personal. It's set up for being sociable and meeting other travellers, there is cool art work on the wall, the dorms are spacious and cool common area. Hot, powerful showers too which is always a bonus. Will definitely recommend!

As another reviewer said... small sign and a scary elevator. When I first got to the elevator I almost turned around! I even walked up the 5 flights of stairs! (the elevator looks dodgy but its actually fine to use) Once I got inside my worries about the place disappeared. The staff are very friendly and the place is greatly decorated.

The rooms are large, so even though there were 8 people in my room I didn't notice because there was so much space. The lounge also has a number of couches and beanbags, and 2 computers with free internet, and there is free wifi. There are 2 bathrooms so at times you had to wait a bit, but the hostel isn't that big so there isn't a massive amount of people staying. There is a kitchen so that you can cook your own meals. This is the heart of the place. despite it being small, its greatly decorated and there are always people and staff there chatting and swapping stories. The hostel is covered in Artwork which makes it feel so homely.

The staff are awesome. On arrival they will give you a map and go through with places to see, things to do, and what to eat. Through out your trip they make an effort to get to know you. Most nights they will take people out so you get a chance to see the nightlife with someone who knows the area.

Location is great, right in the middle of Budapest, Everything you need is in walking distance. Very easy to get to from the metro.

I highly recommend this place.

Although the hostel isn't well signposted and when you go in the front door and up the scary lift you do wonder where the f you're going but once you get into the actual hostel its amazing!!
Friendly staff there to greet you and their priority is to keep you informed and entertained, they went through the map with us and explained where everything was, how much things were and even where the good restaurants and bars were, they took us out at night and made it just like a night out with friends. Everyone in the hostel is included and its a really good place to meet people and make friends.
The common room is the best i've see, a really cool place to chill out and relax. All over the hostel the walls are decorated with really cool drawings and artwork.
The beds are comfy with even some double ones available, the place is clean and you can also get your laundry done cheaply.
All in all its just a happy, friendly place to be... its got a real hippy kind of feel to it and you can't help but feel at home... loved it!!

Although it was a lot smaller then it seemed in the video on the website, the hostel can't really be faulted. The staff are ultra friendly, and are likey to hang around with you in the day and show you the clubs at night. They made our stay really welcoming and contributed to the friendliness of everyone at the hostel. Would definately reccomend!

I stayed there as the first time ever staying in a hostel and absolutely loved it. The staff was great, meeting them really made you feel at home. They were also very helpful and kept a very nice and clean place.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hi backpacker! We are here to welcome you to Budapest and also to invite you to join our community at The Loft--a community that shares with each other, explores together and stays up into the wee hours because there is still more beer in the refrigerator and the conversation is too good to end. One that celebrates the thrill of a new city, new food and new people, but also understands the need for long, glorious, uninterrupted sleep (having spent too many nights in airports to save a euro), never ending hot water and the rejuvenating qualities of a perfect, giant couch. So if you are tired--you sleep. If you are hungry--you eat. And whenever you are ready to go outside and see Budapest, we will not drag you by the wrist to the obvious places, but we will stand beside you and help to navigate the twisting roads, quirky museums, cheap cafes and uniquely-Budapest bars that collectively are the pulse of the city. We are a small space at Loft, but it suits us and our travelers perfectly. We are simply ourselves here, but the music is always on, the kettle is always on, we are happy and most of all? We really hope you will join us. The Staff, The Loft. Our hostel workers are lovers of fine cuisine, and other such things. ... more   less
