Property Description

CENTRAL, CLEAN, QUALITY HOSTEL with Dorms, Private Rooms, Ensuites, Apartments – THE CHOICE IS YOURS!
Feel Good, Safe and Satisfied in a clean, organised artistic environment, in the centre of Budapest. Our hostel is next to Budapest’s most trendy square (Liszt Ferenc tér) surrounded by shops, restaurants, clubs, ruin bars and sights.

The newly renovated (March, 2016) Friends Hostel & Apartments with its exclusive service and decoration welcomes You all, whether you are a solo or business traveller, a couple, a family, or a small group of friends.

Friends is a small and clean design hostel with several accommodation options and artistic design in the centre of Budapest, in an area surrounded by several tourist sights, ruin bars, cinemas, theartres, plenty of good restaurants, clubs, cafe’s. We are in the middle, everything is reachable on foot.
FRIENDS HOSTEL occupies the whole second floor of a typical Pest downtown residential building and currently offers 16 rooms and 7 apartments for total 70 persons. We offer 12 fresh, trendy and modern design rooms, and further 4 classic rooms (older style but larger and comfortable rooms with sat tv ).
We have mainly private rooms for 1 to 5 people with shared facilities, but also ensuite rooms with own bathroom, plus 2 dormitories (6-8 pers). Our apartments: We also have 4 apartments on the same floor as the hostel itself (next door), and 3 separate apartments in neighbouring buildings in our area. The apartments can accommodate 2 to 5 persons, each of them is with bathroom and kitchen, most of them with living room.
When creating FRIENDS HOSTEL one of our intentions was to show the ARTWORKS of Hungarian painters, architects and inventors to our guests. We dedicated all of our rooms to famous Hungarian modern painters in different artistic styles.
Our common areas, corridors (like a small art gallery) are mainly decorated by the paintings of talented local contemporary artists. On the walls you can also see our own photographs of our favorite buildings in Budapest.
We are of course not only about Arts & Paintings: We have board games, huge TV with sat channels, video games (X-Box), table soccer (etc.) to make your stay as fun as possible. PLUS, in the high season we offer free programs as: PUB TOUR or COOK TOGETHER EVENINGS, and help you plan your best program, activity or party during your stay in Budapest.
Unlike in the huge hostels we intend to take care of every single traveller in case of any questions from program planning to any local assistance.
We really hope we gave you a nice impression and you will love your stay with us,

Latest Review

" Very clean hostel. Come here for a nice shower and good nights sleep. Don't come here expecting to be social. it was awkwardly quiet. The hostel staff didn't even look my way let alone start a friendly conversation. Zero atmosphere. And the kitchen, reception and "lounge" area are all in 1 small space so even people that were travelling in pairs were reduced to whispering instead of being able to hold a normal conversation. "
