+/- + really friendly and homelike atmosphere + in the centre of city, good location + kind staff who will show you interesting places in the city - rooms could be cleaner - breakfast and dinner could be better

I absolutely adored this hostel! I arrived early for check-in, as I was coming from a different hostel, and asked the staff if she could recommend anywhere for me to pass the time in the area. When her first suggestion was a donut shop/cafe that doubled as a book exchange, I knew I was in good hands. The hostel is...

We stayed in the hostel for two nights. When we arrived to Budapest, we followed the hostel's guide to find the place, and trust me, even with all the directions, it is hard to find. It has a tiny (almost hidden) sign. But anyway. Once we got there, the check in was done smoothly, although we got there in a...

I have recently been here and I just loved it! Warm, welcoming athmosphere, always helpful stuff, it truly feels like being at home. It is in the true heart of this pulsing city, in a lovely area, close to bars! It is very easy to visit around Budapest as well. Definitely recommend it!

I stayed 5 nights here and am happy I chose this one out of the many hostels in Budapest. The staff were very helpful, free dinners were a great way to meet fellow travellers, and the location was just right. It is close to the parliament and about 40 minutes maximum by foot to all the major destinations/nightlife.

I had the best time at this hostel! It's a converted apartment, so it's pretty small, but converted so nicely! The TV room is fun and cozy, the rooms are very spacious, clean, and comfortable. The kitchen is super tiny, definitely only room for one person. 3 nights a week there is free dinner which was such a nice bonus....

Nice staff, and good location! They offer traditional dinner for free 3 times a week. It's really tasty! The breakfast is nice (bread, jam, milk, cereal, coffee and tea, some fruits). The hostel is just some steps from the parliament. I really recommend this place!

Perfect location near all the sights and public transportation and they had really nice staff. The hostel itself was quite small, but quaint. They had warm showers, bread and cereal for breakfast and free towels. I would definitely go back and plan on it!

It's in a great location, really close to many transports. The breakfast it's really good (I miss those toasts) and the hungarian dinner nights are amazing to meet new people and, well, to eat. Really nice staff and everything was very clean

Despite the staff kindness and the good location, the good prize can't be a synonym of bad hygiene! We arrived late in the night and we booked a triple private ensuite and there were 4 beds and one of those was clearly unchanged (duvet wrapped up in) and ours didn't seem and didn't smell clean too. There were hair everywhere...

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)
Home+ Hostel is your home away from home, plus a lot more. We are a comfortable, friendly, bright, safe and well equipped small hostel where you can stay in mixed larger rooms or smaller private rooms.We are located in the heart of Budapest, near the Danube river, between the Parliament and Margaret bridge, on the Pest side of the river. Margaret island is just a five minute walk where you can enjoy the outdoors, plus a lot more.Since we are located near the Margaret bridge, you can choose between discovering the city center or walking over the bridge to the more residential area where the royal castle is located. Don't forget to stop on the bridge to take the best 'Budapest at night' photo :)Our goal is to give you what we would like to get if we were travelling abroad and to make you feel at home. We do that by speaking good English, giving you sightseeing tips, providing you with all the info you may need, keeping the place clean and offering you a variety of pc, audio and video services.Your hosts, Andrew and company, we all love our work, we all love our guests and we like to see everybody happy. So, see you soon! ... more   less
