Best hostel in Budapest!! The hostel is in centre so you can walk everywhere from here. There are personal lockers for everyone, brand new strong wifi, new showers, towels and new mattresses when i arrived so everything is very clean and comfortable. But the best thing is Anton - he is so friendly and welcoming, he will help you with anything and make you feel at home. The best hostel if you want to go out and have a great time then come back for a good nights sleep. Would recommend highly!


I had a great stay at HBC. The employees were very friendly and helpful, the place was charming and homey, the location was ideal for seeing Budapest nightlife and tourist spots. I felt safe and appreciated the lockers that came with keys in our rooms. Highly recommended hostel!

Bed is very uncomfortable, but the owner more than makes up for it. He is the man!


It is an old and beautiful building with small rooms (I stayed in a 4 beds room for woman). The staff is helpful. The room is very affordable, that's the main positive point. The showers are not very clean (because very old), and my stay was a bit ruin by a group of drunken english girls that try to sleep into my bed! That's ok for a short stay, the hostel is at 5 minutes walk of the main attractions of the city. And the rooms are cheap. But I could'nt say that I recommend it.


Cheap, decent location, largeish kitchen, wifi throughout the building, free towels and decent sized rooms. Strange decor - things pickled in jars in a cabinet (?!), posters of Croatia everywhere although we were in Hungary, model sharks hanging from the ceiling... Staff were not very friendly or particulary helpful - seemed reluctant to communicate with each other, couldn't advise where to buy bus tickets or where certain attractions/sights were.


수염있고 뚱뚱한 아저씨 스태프 덕분에 좋은 여행이 되었습니다. 체크아웃할 때 감사인사 전하려고 했는데 안계시더라구요 (T.T) 너무 친절하게 대해주셔서 감사했습니다. :)
