Address: Nyar utca 6, Budapest, 1072, Hungary

Star rating:

3.7

A clean and well-equipped hostel in Budapest city centre.

I’d say this is probably one of the best hostels in Budapest, and certainly one of the most central. The rooms are well thought out, and the facilities are good – including a cellar bar.

Location

The hostel is centrally located – within the Great Boulevard, just off Rákóczi út (a popular shopping avenue), and only a ten-minute walk to the river. The transport hub of Blaha Lujza tér is nearby.

Bedrooms

The rooms are excellent. There are 156 beds in total. Twin rooms and quads have bright splashes of yellow and orange, and their own white-tiled en suite bathrooms; they also have telephone and TV. The dormitories contain 12 beds, but are divided into separate sections each containing a pair of bunks and cupboard space. Bunks have curtains for privacy. Everything is clean and comfortable.

Public areas

All very nicely maintained, with white-painted corridors, red-tiled floors and a pleasant courtyard terrace. Among the facilities are coin-operated internet access and washing machines, and free luggage storage and valuables safe.

Eating and drinking

The hostel bar is in the arching brick cellar. Breakfast is available (for an additional charge), and you can also arrange for dinner and lunch if you ask in advance.

Service

Informal, as you’d expect.
