The staff were amazing and so helpful and did not hesitate in helping us at anytime, the location was great and near to everything and a short walk to the city, facilities were even better. Would recommend anyone to stay here! Keep up the good work guys

I've been in Budapest for three days with a friend. The location is great: very central and near the metro station Oktogon (like 3 minutes walking). From the outside it doesn't look as well as it is inside, but when you come in you suddenly notice that the hostel is very nice, cosy and new. We had a private loft-room... More

I actually didn't even stay at this hostel, but I was desperate to print something (absentee ballot!) and I asked them if they would do it for me. Jack helped me out and when I tried to pay him he refused! Wow! I am so grateful! Without a doubt, I will stay with them next time I'm in Budapest, because... More

I stayed in a private room at Friends Hostel and I loved it. The room was spacious and had a comfortable bed. The apartment had one large and one smaller shared bathroom so I never had to wait to get ready in the morning. Krista, who works at the front desk, is fantastic. She is a knowledgeable and lovely person.... More

The Friends Hostel is definitely somewhere that stands out for me in regards to accomodation I've used over the years. Its modern, clean, great facilities, great staff, beautiful building and street. For us Kriszta really made our stay the best it could be. She is probably one of the nicest people I have come across and wonderful at her job.... More

Friends hostel was a great value for money, the rooms were really clean and so were the shared bathrooms. The communal area included a kitchen and a sofa meaning it had a very social vibe and we met lots of great people! Basics such as butter and pasta were provided so we didn't have to spend much money on food.... More

“The room you have is likely dependent on how many are in your party. The facilities were clean, the location is fabulous, that bathrooms, common area and kitchen are shared, but more than adequate... and they offer rental bikes on property, which is a very nice feature as Budapest is bicycle friendly... but the most important asset of this facility if the FRIENDLY HELPFUL STAFF!!”
