Grandio has been my home away from home for a while now. It's the absolute best place to have fun and get a bit weird in Budapest. The staff in particular make this place amazing. Special shoutout to my girl Big Ed! Can't wait until my next visit!!!

Get ready for this place to rock your socks off. And then your too blackout to find said socks. But they show up a week later. Grandio is one of a kind. The party never stops and why would you ever want it too. Grandio became my home away from home because of all the amazing people who work there....

Ended up here towards the end of a big night out in Budapest. After some of the horribly crowded ruin pubs, this place was a nice change of scene. A pleasant courtyard strewn with hammocks and tables, with good music and an extensive bar.

Stayed here based on a recommendation from a friend for 2 nights but would not stay again. I feel because its a party hostel they think that means they do not have to meet any minimum requirements for staff, cleanliness etc. All the staff seemed like they either did not want to be working if you asked them anything hostel...

Can't stress enough how much fun I had at Grandio. Get ready to have the most insane time possible. This is the place to go if you find yourself in Budapest--better yet, just go to Budapest so you can go to Grandio. The staff is sick, the guests are sick, and the bar is sick. Can't go wrong. Quick shoutout...

I was a bit weary, at the start, about staying in a "party hostel" but honestly, it's just fun. All the staff are so nice and helpful and everyone there is so chilled out and just looking for a good time. They organise nights out as well, we tagged along to a karaoke night and it was easily the best...

Grandio is definitely a party hostel, and this is largely facilitated by the staff who are super chatty and encouraging of joining in on nights out (Boat Party, Ruin Pub Crawl, Bath Party etc.). Not for everybody, but if you don't mind the noise and the communal nature of the hostel then definitely don't miss out! A bit grungy looking,...

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You can sleep when you're dead so DON'T expect to get any here. Grandio, one of the only true party places on this earth that welcomes alcoholics, lost souls and arty people with talent but no direction and audiences, the living breathing creature that is constantly evolving, the place with a crazy cult following. On site bar, or beer sold by our staff, or the beer vending machine, or strawpedoes for breakfast.....these are all ways in which we fuel our thirsty and party hard guests (and staff). When the bar is shut, we move to the late room, the den of noise and naughtiness, with a sex bed and hammock depending on how adventurous you are. Every night our staff take you out on different activities in the city. These range from Backpackers fancy dress parties, to pub crawls, to live music nights, to karaoke nights, which take you to our personal favourite (plus some of the cheapest) bars in the city. If you feel like doing something a little different, never fear, as our staff have their finger on the pulse of the city's nightlife and are able to recommend differently nightly activities depending on your tastes. We have a live music venue in the basement, which has different acts on every night providing for all different tastes in music. Every Sunday they let us use it to showcase the talent we play host to with our own open-mic night in which we use our own instruments which include a plethora of guitars, drum kit, piano, violin, piano accordions, plus more as well as our very own sound technician! The staff have all been hand picked, which might seem a bit wild when they are walking around dressed up in dressing gowns with a beer in one hand, but this is the Grandio uniform, wear whatever makes you feel comfortable, or we got from the euro store that day. If you think you can challenge us, we'll probably rise to it, if not, we'll respect you for trying! The place itself is as wild as our staff and guests, decorated by street artists from around the world it houses a games room with table football and ping pong, the bar, a secret restaurant, which we could tell you about, but we'd have to kill you, a mix of rooms, some en-suite, with varying numbers of beds, and if you're lucky, a loo with a view. If you're not too hung over during the day we can organise daytime activities for you. The staff at Grandio are able to organise tours of the city plus other daytime activities such as paint balling or laser-tag. So the arty amongst you might appreciate the fact that all of our rooms, the outside and insides of everything are decorated by the best street artists of Budapest, and have been added to by global artists who liked what they saw and wanted to add to it. We have a band, called The Grandio Journals, which changes members every week when we practice in the open mic night, and we welcome all talent to perform here. As well as that, we are in a great location, especially if you like drinking as we are in the heart of the bar district, the only rules we have are about respect to our guests and neighbours, and other than that we want you to have a wild time, because we will be first! Please note, like the name says, this IS a party hostel, we go out every night, some people drink in the day time, there is a bar, sometimes sex, and a lot of fun. If you don't like these things, please try a calmer hostel, like Carpe Noctem Vitae. Please note: Regrettably, due to previous experience, we can no longer accept bookings for people over 40. If you have booked and are outside this age, please contact us and we will help find you alternative accommodation. ... more   less
