The best hostel I've ever stayed in. Very clean, with friendly staff and the best possible localization.

Thank you Wojciech Mielczarek for your glowing review of our hostel. It is great to know that all of our hard work is not missed, and that all the training and effort the staff put into their job is not wasted. Thank you again! And you are always welcome to stay with us anytime :). Craig - Hostel Manager


Bedrooms were fine but atmosphere was poor. People didn't interact between them. Staff didn't know anything about the city.

Hello Aroa, thank you so much for your feedback, as it helps us get better and better. We are very sorry you did not find the atmosphere to your liking - this is something we can rarely be in control of so we believe it is unfair to blame the hostel if people did not interact. I realize this is very important, and we try our best. On the two days that you stayed, we had two members of staff who are dedicated to giving information to the guests. Sorry you didn't get much use out of them. Craig


My boyfriend and I had a great time at the Bazar Hostel! The location is perfect and is easy to get to from the airport. Jim was at the front desk when we arrived, and he was awesome! We stayed in a private ensuite room, and everything was clean and in excellent condition. The kitchen facilities were nice as well. Nothing bad to say about our experience! We would stay at this hostel again if we visit Budapest in the future.

Hello Afton and boyfriend! thank you for the great review. Thankfully you could see the hard work we pour into the hostel, to keep it clean and the ensure that our guests have a great time in the hostel, but more importantly out of it. You are always more than welcome to stay with us again. Take care. Craig - Hostel Manager


You make your own bed upon arrival, which I don't fully understand. After a long trip that's the last thing I wanna do. The staff is great, and the common area is extremely comfortable. Chill atmosphere, great wifi connection everywhere, and clean bathrooms. The bunks weren't very sturdy, but that could be fixed if they secured them to the wall. I wish every dorm had a sign saying 'If you're checking out early, pack the night before so you don't wake everyone up'

Hello Jameel, thank you for the honest review. We are very grateful as it pushes our hostel to be better and better. We try our hardest to keep everything clean, to make sure the staff go the extra mile with the guests and that the hostel has a great atmosphere. We ask the guests to make their own bed as it is less confusing to see where someone is sleeping, checked out and forgot to bring their sheets - basically to show that everything is perfectly clean when you arrive. Please come back


Really cool staff, great location, free wifi, free pancakes one morning, kitchen, great location, free drink on check-in. Everything close by, clean, helpful staff, printed my bus tickets for me! Lounge/common area is a bit cramped though. Too many ppl on holiday just laying around. I still highly recommend though.

Thank you Sergio! A great review for us, so it means that we tried hard to make sure our staff are cool, friendly and up-to-date with local information and events. Our printing facilities, like our tea and coffee is always free, and sometimes we make pancakes too :). Sorry to hear about the common area being cramped. We try to get people out and about to enjoy the city, but some people just want to relax in our inviting atmosphere and good music taste. We cant blame them. Please come back soon


Had a great few days in the hostel. I like the gathering area in the middle where every hostelvisitor could go to eat, play cards, drink or just to meet new people.

I spent almost 3 weeks at Bazar Hostel and I had a great time. I slept in a 6 bed dormitory. The rooms are clean and the matresses are pretty good. The common area is cosy and big. Therefore it is easy to meet new people. Location is perfect. There is a lively nightlife on the streets with a lot of bars just around the corner (don't forget your earplugs when you are sensitive). But the biggest plus of the hostel is the staff itself. All of them are very friendly and helpful. Great people.


Pretty cool hostel. Not really a place that promotes interaction amongst guest. Just the way it's laid out. More of a sleep and go. Great location. Near a major bar street. Also a drawback. If you expect to sleep forget it. Nights are VERY loud here. Stay is cool. A couple of the day shift guys are sarcastic as hell but ok I guess. Most were helpful.


The staff are amazing, the kitchen is amazing, the location is amazing and the girls I met in my all female dorm were great too!!!! So so worth it!


The hostel is small but very reasonable, staff are friendly and are there to make your life comfortable. Small things like there were no sheets on my bed, but I asked for them at the desk and they gave them to me right away. There is a center table in the common area and people are sitting and talking there all the time -- as a single traveler it was easy to meet people, and it's just around the corner from szimpla kert, best ruin pub. Definitely would stay again. Unbeatable for the price.
