Highlights were staff was friendly and super helpful with helping us plan our trip. Amazing value for money, better than any hostel we've stayed at. Bathrooms were clean and tidy, very flexible with our departure schedule. Would stay there again!

Pal's hostel was definitely amazing! I stayed 3 nights alone but they gave me an apartment maximum for 7 persons with kitchen, that was a big surprise. The room was very clean and all facilities was good. The staff were very friendly and helpful, you don't need to search on internet by ur own because they will tell u all informations. The location was perfect, it just next to the St. Stephen's, and only 5 mins to metro station. There are bars downstairs. By the way, wi-fi was absolutely great.

The location couldn't get any better. For us only having two nights in Budapest the central location on St. Stephan's Square was perfect. The free walking tour Pal's recommended (tip well, that's how they earn a living) was excellent. The apartment was nice although I'd recommend ear plugs and face mask as the square below is lively until 3-4am on the weekend and the curtains don't block much light. Other than that, it is great!

We arrived later than expected and at a different train station. Pal's staff sent us detailed descriptions how to get to the hostel from both trainstations, which was very helpful. They were really friendly at check-in, told us the most important hot spots and how to get around the quickest, as we only had 1 1/2 days. The apartment was 100 meters from the Saint Stephens Basilika, very pretty, very central and clean. We had a great time there!

Enjoyed our stay here comfy bed compared to others we have used! Wifi was good worked in the room. Location was perfect Only con I would say is that we came across a few ants in the bedroom and the bathroom. Nothing major between 3-5 small ones.

True. It happens in one of our apartments. When there is a bigger change in the weather ants come out somehow.We 'fight' with them for few days then peace (no sign of them) for months.

We loved our stay at Pal's! Our apartment looked out over St. Stephan's Basilica and was a bit loud at night with the windows open, but that's to be expected and didn't bother us. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and the apartment was lovely and had everything we needed.

Everything was perfect although our triple private was not air conditioned and quite hot.

Pals was perfect for us, we had a kitchen and a shared bathroom but the private room was very spacious and good bed. The location was perfect, neat there main metro and walking from most of thr main tourist things in budapest. We did not require transport passes as the location made everything easier.

Awesome location in the City Center, different to most hostels as you have your own Apartment, but comfy beds and a nice Shower, though in our case it was a big bathtub and no hanging shower. Brilliant for privacy, and if you want to explore the area from the comfort of your "home"

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Budapest is an incredible city and if you want an awesome location to stay then stay at PALS myself and 4 friends shared their private room/apartment and it didn't disappoint full kitchen, bathroom and living room facilities, the pictures don't do it justice. With the basilica on your doorstep it was truly amazing! I will be returning to the city! Thanks PALS!

The best location ever. The most helpful staff possible and the best rooms And I have stayed in. It's like we had our own apartment. Super clean. I couldn't think of a better place to stay

A really unique hostel which we loved! The staff went the extra mile by emailing beforehand with extra directions, and when we arrived we were given a fast run briefing of what to do/where to go in Budapest with a free map. Free printing also a plus! We loved our room (double shared bathroom) despite the bathroom being slightly odd in that the ancient boiler (with visible flames) was above the bath and in incredibly close proximity with the shower! overall a really good stay though!

We had a really great time staying at Pal's. The staff were always really helpfully and everything was very comfortable. Only comment would be the wifi doesn't work very well in the rooms. Thanks again.

Great location, really great, really! It is in an old building, so the lightning wasn't great. The hostel is really good for couples, but wouldn't recommend as a place to make friends.

Landed in Budapest and instructions on how to find the hostel were very easy to follow! Helpful when we got there and good advice on where to go and what to see.

Stayed at this hostel for two nights and it was brilliant! Myself and my partner had a huge apartment to ourselves right in front of St. Stephen's Basilica. It is a millions times better than what you would expect from a hostel!!

Very friendly and welcoming staff, and a good location. If in Budapest again, I will definitely stay here!

Stayed two nights at this hostel in a three-bed private room with friends. The room was actually an apartment in a historical building for university faculty or such, located near the basilica. The room height of the apartment was impressive, close to 4 meters I believe. Clean, centrally located and inexpensive, would definitely stay again.
