Property Information:

Located in the city centre of Budapest, we are a small and cosy independent hostel run by travelers for travelers. We are a 2-minute walk away from Metro Line 2 and 3, and in walking distance of most of Budapest’s sights.

Our friendly and up-to-date staff can provide you with insight into Budapest’s day and nightlife, so you can visit all the places worth seeing and get to know the city from a local’s point of view. Whether you are here to relax, to party, on a business trip or to explore the capital, we want you to have the best time in our beautiful city.

When staying with Gingko, you’ll get far more than just a bed in a hostel: you can feel at home away from home. Whether you are with friends, a significant other or travelling solo, here you can meet other like-minded people who can help you make your trip unforgettable.

Are you tired of walking? You’re in luck! We’ve got bikes that you can rent and you can ask our receptionists for a free map so you definitely won’t get lost while wandering around Budapest.

Arriving late? No problem: there’s someone at reception 24/7 so you can check in any time you want. We also provide free internet access to all our guests and if you don’t want to take on the city on an empty stomach, you can order a cheap basic breakfast at reception the night before.

Do you crave some privacy? We’ve got double private rooms for you. If you’d rather stay in a dorm room, that’s not a problem either: we have 6 and 7-bed dorms for you to choose from.

We are an LGBTQ+ friendly hostel.

What are you waiting for? All of this is just a few clicks away! Book a bed with us now and experience it all first hand.
