I really liked Pal's hostel, the staff were really friendly and gave us a great insight into the city and what there was to see. The hostel was clean and comfortable and most importantly had a fantastic location. I for sure want to return to Buda again and would more than happily stay at Pal's!

We got a 4 bedroom apartment right next to Saint Steven's Basilica, with all basic utilities provided. Very good hostel

Really loved the place and had such a fantastic location for young travellers as it is situatated right in the centre and has a lot to offer. However the one down side of where we stayed was that it was difficult to get good wifi signal in the room itself but instead had to sit in the stairs to be able to use the Internet but apart from that it was really great and would love to stay there again and would recommend to anyone

I tried it myself and the signal was not stron enough in the room. Sorry about it:( We put an extender for wireless in the room. The connection is very good now:)

If you are coming to Budapest, STAY AT PALS. The location is perfect, with great views overlooking the Basilica. If you want a bar to socialise or breakfast provided this is not the place for you. However there is an extremely cheap supermarket just down the road to buy food for breakfast and plenty of local bars for socialising. With Pal's you get a huge amount of space in a comfy, clean, secure, air conditioned apartment in a perfect location. The best way to do Budapest is to stay at Pals.

Outstanding location, incredibly helpful and friendly staff who went above and beyond to make sure we had the nicest stay possible. Room was good and location couldn't be any better. Would recommend this place to anyone and when returning to Budapest this would be the first place I would look to book.

Perfect location (main sights, club/bar area within walking distance, supermarket nearby too)! Very friendly and helpful staff (gave us useful tips and recommendations). Had a double room with shared bathroom: spacious room, kitchen and bathroom/shower was all the time spotless clean. Wifi connection didn't work well :( Hostel's common area is quite small, so not really ideal for meeting other travellers (others than the ones in your flat). If back in Budapest I will definetely stay here again!

All rounder - ridiculously superb location, nice balcony overlooking the basilica church. Staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs. Nice kitchen, clean sheets, comfy beds... Pro Tip: tug the chain on the toilet twice to make it stop

Cheers! We fixed the toilet chain:)

a great location, and a lovely apartment. our apartment had a spectacular view of the basilica (probably the best view of the basilica you can get in Budapest!). Very clean and well equipped living room and kitchen, and it was a place we could feel at home :) Would definitely return again.

A spacious apartment with an absolutely stunning view from of the Basilica, as well as sublime location within the city, Pal's is the best hostel I've been to. The staff are incredibly kind and helpful, and the place felt very homely. My only possible complaint would be the artwork in the apartment, but that's a matter of personal taste anyway...

Yeah. There's a painting about the life cycle. Snake eats the pig... :)

This hostel is like having your own apartment right in the city center. We had a balcony, giant bathroom, and fully equipped fridge AND we were right next to the basilica. Honestly the best hostel I've saved in in Europe so far, especially for the price. The staff also was more than helpful- gave us directions, restaurant recommendations, etc. as well as a basic review of the city to make the most of our stay. So friendly. Loved our stay here!

Pals was good, big room and good location! Bit scary at night having to walk up the stairs in the dark and trying to find the light! But overall a nice stay and very excellent location!

Thank you very much! The switch for the light is at the begining of the staircase.

The apartment was amazing! It was completely spotless, fully furnished and we had so much space. We were literally right next to the Basilica and had a brilliant view of it and the surrounding square from our windows. Although the only problem was that in the middle of summer with no air conditioning, one small fan could not cool down the whole apartment so we often felt too hot.

My brother and I had a wonderful stay at Pal's! The staff were all great, and our room was perfect. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and would certainly stay here again on a future trip to Prague!
