The hostel was great! Friendly and helpful staff, really comfortable and cozy, with clean linen and facilities. There is shared kitchen and also free tea and coffee :) It is in the center of Budapest, really nice connected to the rest of the city, so it was not a problem to find it. It was really great! If I ever come back to Budapest, I will stay there for certain!

The room was great! The bathroom had heated floors and a heated towel rack! Still social even though it only has private rooms. I highly recommend staying here!

Apartment style, no interaction with the rest of the rooms, and no real atmosphere to speak of. It's a great place if you just want to stay a few nights and not hang around the hostel.

Good, but too expensive

Excellent location. Excellent staff. Wonderful atmosphere. Just that the beds were a little uncomfortable. At times I could feel the spring. Rest all were good.!

1st, this is not a party hostel but low levels of noise are ok. With that said, this place is perfect in every way. Attila and the rest of the staff are wonderful. Not only were they incredibly friendly and knowledgeable but it was always a joy to come "home" to their smiling faces. I had a great time in Budapest and they were a huge part of it, from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Thank you Maverick for making it such a wonderful experience for all of us. You guys are the best.

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.
