I cannot praise this hostel enough. When we arrived we were completely shocked by what we were getting for our money - first of all the staff went above and beyond the call of duty, always kind and really helpful. Second of all the location just cannot be bested, the view from our massive windows were of the Basilica, right in the heart of town. Our room was spacious, light and airy, you get your own kitchen and bathroom, which are lovely. Thank you so much Pal's!

The staffs are amazing,they are willing to give you all the details for traveling and any help for hostel. The room is also very clean and well requipmented. But it is a little pity that the hairdyer needed to rent.The location is nearly perfect.We hope to go back again if we visit Budapest again.

Shirty staff. We arrived after 10 but despite warning hostel in advance that this would be the case, and receiving reassurances that this was OK, the member of staff on duty obviously hadn't been informed and was initially a bit irritated and annoyed with us. (This was hard as myself and my two children were exhausted after travelling for 14 hours on the train.) Got ticked-off again at check-out for not paying day after arrival (I had assumed payment on departure or arrival as is normal).

Excellent location in the city center, very friendly and helpful staff, nice and large rooms. Common areas such as ktichen and bathroom were cleaned daily so they were very clean all the time. Excellent ice cream place next door ;-)

Nice place centrally located in Budapest. I would recommend ceiling fans in the rooms as the air gets very hot and stale and one oscillating tower fan is not adequeate to distribute all the hot air. Would totally recommend again

The rooms really need air conditioning! Otherwise beautiful.

Thank you! We are not allowed to put air-conditioning on the frontage of historical buildings. They are part of the National Heritage and we should save their conditions:(

The location was perfect as our hostel apartment room was situated opposite St Stephens Basilica. There were a lot of restaurants and bars etc nearby. The staff were more than happy to help, for example giving us information about the city and things to do. The apartment itself was great value for money and was very modern. The only negative point was tat the wifi didn't work at any point during our stay. Otherwise I would definitely recommend Pals Hostel to anyone wanting to stay in Budapest

Thank you very much! Yes, the wifi...sorry... It's a new room and we forgot to put an extender into the apt:( I know it's not professional at all but happened. Shame. Very sorry about it!

Hostel was really nice and in a great location! only things is that we were staying in a apartment that sleeps 6 people and you only had 1 fan which wasn't enough considering the heat! You should have at least a fan or 2 for each room! Other than that I couldn't complain!

We had a great time there on the twin bed bedroom. The toilet is shared by not more than 2/3 bedrooms and we never found it busy, so after all it seemed to be a suite. The staff is very caring and polite. The Italian restaurant just besides it is a great deal as well.
