“Just Few Steps to Parliament Building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

Location is great. Rooms are clean. Very close to Kossuth subway station and Parliament building. Staff is helpful and friendly. Not luxurious but good for its price. In summary everything is positive about this hostel.

The Origo Hostel is well-located, clean and not expensive. In other words, the perfect recipe for a good hostel. Staff is very kind (they also offer to do laundry for you). It is possible to buy coffee, croissants, drinks or snacks from the fridge for reasonable prices; tea is free. Usually I am particularly picky about cleanliness but this time I could not complain at all.

Well, it is a hostel, so don't expect luxury. But for that price, fully recommended, especially if you are a small group and can book a 4-bed room to have it for yourself.

The hostel is clean, the beds are acceptable, there's free Wifi and a computer available, a kitchen area and small food and drink items available for sale, there's reliable hot water, the manager/owner is super-friendly, really not much more you can ask for at that price.

The only drawback I can think of is that you need to arrange your arrival time as there's not always someone there so you need your doorcode and key before.

Two totally OK cafes/bars just downstairs, one of them a meeting point of taxi drivers, so if you get lazy and need a taxi, e.g. early morning to the airport, it's super easy. Metro stops of different lines very close. Less than 15 minutes on foot to the main square and shopping area.

Fully recommended.

This 5 bedroom hostel is very well equipped, well decorated and was a pleasure to stay at.
There is a cosy communal area with a good-sized, clean kitchen. Essentials such as salt, pepper, milk etc were provided as were toiletries such as shampoo, soap, toothpaste, towels. The free WiFi worked without any problems and there was even a laptop available for our use. The second floor hostel is very secure; one requires a pin to enter the building, two keys to get into the hostel and a key for each room within.
An honesty box is kept in the kitchen which allows food and drink items from the fridge to be purchased at close-to-shop prices. There is also a Lavazza coffee machine which can be used for 300 HUF per coffee.
The owner is very welcoming and very friendly in general. He did his best to suggest good places to visit, suggest the best ways of getting there and informed us of any disruptions on public transport. It is also possible to purchase tickets for some of the more popular tourist destinations from the owner, making it possible to avoid queues.
We visited as a group and booked 4 out of 5 of the rooms, giving us plenty of space. All bedding and pillows were provided.
The location of the hostel was perfect for a long weekend city break. There is a cafe directly under the hostel which is also run by the owner. Breakfast can be ordered and brought up to the room on request. There is also a SPAR corner shop less than two minutes walk away.
The metro, river cruises, bridges over to Buda, local restaurants and popular destinations such as St.Stephens Basilica, the Parliament building and the Fisherman's Bastion are all within easy walking distance. If you want to find the hostel on Google Maps before you leave, it is through the doors next to the cafe with the green canopy, next to the change shop.
We had a brilliant time in Budapest overall and were extremely happy with out choice of hostel which just added to the experience. Definitely recommended. Many thanks.

My friend and I got 'lost' on our way here coz we didn't thought that this hostel is actually behind that big old black gate! :) but we managed to find it anyway! lol
Great hospitality, awesome hosts, comfy bedrooms, clean bathroom and reasonable price. Location was within walking distance to all the tourists attractions and it's near to the metro station.
Will definitely be back and recommend this to our friends!
