After traveling to four different European cities in a span of 6 days (Dresden, Cologne, Prague and Budapest), I can safely say that this was the best hostel experience we had by a long shot. The receptionist was excellent, we were put in a wonderful apartment overlooking the Danube, and the amenities were spectacular. If I ever need to use a hostel in Budapest again, you can rest assured that I will be going back to Maverick. 5/5 stars!

We had a four bed ensuite that was perfect for four people. Plenty of space. Nice bathroom facilities. Great window view. Only complaints about this room: 1. Hot water ran out very fast & 2. Any time the water was running in the room, some kind of pump or machine connected to the water lines in our room made a terribly loud sound. Rather annoying.

Good: - Great internet in the 10 bed dorm room - Lots of locker space - Free towels, locks for lockers - Super friendly and helpful staff - Free drink vouchers for local restaurants - Activities and recommendations for excursions from Maverick - Commons area spacious Bad: - Rooms hot, unless windows were open - Beds were not comfortable. We could feel all of the springs in the mattresses - Shower drains were clogged, drained slowly - Security: Front door was always open

Dear Matthew, Thanks for the review. We will check the beds today and change the uncomfortable ones. We have already asked the cleaning staff to be more precise. Regarding the security we have a 24 hour reception inside the hostel area, but also our building provides an other 24 hour security reception at the entrance gate, which gives double safety in the building.

Great hostel! Staff very kind and helpful, comfy beds, plenty places relax, and you can't beat the location- walking distance from sights, a supermarket around the corner, and a metro stop just 50 meters from the front door.

The hostel was wonderful! It had everything we needed and was located right downtown. The staff enhanced our stay by helping us with places to visit and eat. We all had a great time.

The best hostel in Budapest.

We made use of the taxi transfer service offered through the hostel from the airport on arrival which was very easy and hassle free. Check in was quick and the staff were friendly. We stayed in a double room with private ensuite - room and bathroom clean and bed was comfortable. The only criticism was that you could hear the other guests walking around their rooms-almost as though they were in yours! Location was central and within easy reach of the underground metro if you didn't fancy a walk.

Thanks a lot for the lovely review. We will change our flooring to fitted carpet in the rooms. The development will take place in the coming weeks.

Great place in beautiful building! Fantastic location right in the centre of Pest and with the metro and bus stops 20m away from the front door. Really comfy double bed and lovely staff, even at three am. Very happy to recommend.

Good location, but entrance is not obvious, it's just close to the main street, need see it carefully. Staff is nice and warm, gave us many useful information. Bed and room are clean, sleep quality is good. Really worth to stay there for more night!

Maverick was an excellent place to stay during my visit to Budapest: the staff were welcoming and helpful, rooms/bathroom/common areas were cleaned daily, and the hostel was overall a great environment for meeting people. Maverick is located in a central location to many of the sights and attractions, in addition to public transportation. My only qualm is with the loft beds, which were a bit annoying to climb. Besides that, I can absolutely recommend staying here.

Dear Madeleine, Thanks for choosing us. We certainly want to improve our service, this is why we have just talked to the receptionists about this and asked them to be more friendly towards our guests.

The staff were great, location was super and the hostel was lovely. My room (a 10-bed dorm) could definitely have done with more than one shower though.

Dear Ruth, Thanks for staying at us. Sorry if we didn't pass the info well, but there are two more showers on the same floor where you were. Our receptionists will be more precise about this from now on.

I and my husband stayed at Maverick for 4 nights. It was a real nice stay. The staff was very helpful and there was a very good kitchen. We had a double room with a very nice bathroom of our own. The hostel is situated in the centre of the city, outside the door we had a bus stop and a metro station. In the same building there also was a supermarket. We couldn't have had a better place to stay in Budapest.
