Downtown Oasis is a great place to stay. It's in a great location and the hostel itself is gorgeous. It's an old apartment building that has turned hostel and it's very spacious and inviting. So far from what I can see there is only one bathroom to three full rooms of people which doesn't seem to be enough but we...

Budapest is a wonderful walking city. This was the beginning of our river cruise and the city is perfect for walking. We covered a lot of the downtown area, and the local were extremely helpful when we got loss. The older buildings are beautiful to examine during the stay we had in the city.

Dear Mariolana, thank you for your stay and review. Indeed there are some neighbours inside the residental building who are a bit sensitive to noise and smoking issues. Smoking is allowed inside the building on the corridor (but not insdie the hostel) and other local residents also smoke on the corridor so I do not understand. Anyway, I hope you...

This felt like spending a couple of nights at a friend's condo. Just a nice, quiet place. There aren't a lot of rooms, about 4-8, I wasn't in the hostel very much (There's that much to do in Budapest!) and we had to share a bathroom, though that was never an issue. It's a gritty, historic in-facing courtyard building. I...

Dear Bill, thank you for your review. Indeed the hostel is located on two different levels. The section located on level 4 has a street view whereas the section located on level 3 looks to a beautiful historical courtyard, which makes it more quiet. You are right, we give a lot of independence since there is no 24-hour reception and...

In lign with all the other reviews, this place is very recommendable. Be ready to feel clueless when checking in, make sure you have prior arrangements with the (very friendly) staff or have their phone number at hand. Bathroom, kitchen, living room, the rooms, it was all above expectations.

downtownoasis, Owner at Downtown Oasis, responded to this review

Dear Steven, good point you have made in your review. As we have no 24-hour reception we organise check-ins with guests who are then given keys, which makes you feel more independent. Before chec-in, we give precise directions how to get to the hostel and how to get inside the building.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
NEW! The hostel is going to open three more BRAND NEW rooms as part of Downtown Oasis Hostel / Apartment. The new property is called Downtown Oasis Ensuites. The rooms, which are equipped with a nice kitchen and a common area, can be found on Level 3 inside the same building. The new property consists of three ensuite rooms, a brand new kitchen and a common area. The most charming hostel in town with an incredible location! Downtown Oasis is a small, homely and beautifully renovated place in the heart of buzzing historic downtown, within walking distance of most of the sights and right in the entertainment quarter.In the heart of Budapest downtown we've created a calm, cozy and intimate atmosphere where after a tiring day of traveling or sightseeing you can relax and really feel at home. We've turned a beautifully renovated classic Budapest apartment into a small hostel so that you, the budget traveler, can enjoy quality accommodation at bargain price, and get a glimpse of Budapest as only locals know it.Please NOTE that the hostel is small with a few private rooms and therefore it's NOT a place where you can meet lots of people and party. However, if you prefer privacy, personal attention, cleanliness and a relaxed atmosphere with a homely touch this place is idyllic for you! To top it all, the hostel is located within walking distance of most of the sights and is surrounded by amazing old buildings, so staying here you can not only see Budapest's history, you can live in it for a while.We are less than five minutes walk away from the famous Vaci street, a fashionable all pedestrian shopping area, and the nightlife and entertainment quarter, packed with trendy pubs, clubs, cafes, fancy restaurants as well as cheap eateries. Only three minutes walk away from the blue, yellow and red metro line stops, night buses, and trams to the Buda side, we provide an ideal base for exploring Budapest's rich past as well as its vibrant multicultural present.Our friendly staff will be happy to assist you with anything you need. We recommend the best places to go out and we can help you to plan the most efficient ways to do your sightseeing.Please note: we don't have a 24 hour reception, which means that we're not in the hostel all day round, so please NOTIFY us about your arrival time.Check-in: 1pm-12 midnight.Check out from rooms: until 11am. ... more   less
