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.

There was a party of 6 and we stayed in the hostel for 4 nights. The location was amazing as it was in the middle of everything. The staff were very helpful. It was value for money and much better than we had expected. The only negative point was the fact we didn't have any plugs, which meant washing up was time consuming.

Amazing hostel and such friendly staff at reception!! Gave us lots of info about where to go and the view points in Budapest, even circled them on a map for us to use. Very good value for money and having the shared kitchen was great! The hostel was quiet which was a perfect escape after being in the busy city, with its own little garden. Main night life square was about a 5 min walk from the hostel with some really cool and cheap bars. Favourite hostel so far ! Thanks !!

Great location,beautiful apartment with an amazing view on St.Istvan Bazilika.Very clean and private. More than I ever expected for that price. Just in the middle of everything with a walking distance to most of tourist attractions. We were allowed to leave our language at the reception after we book out from the hostel. Taxi was called for us. We were given a lot of great info about places with good food etc.Thanks a lot!!!!!!

The staff were very helpful. Rooms didn't really have sound proofing and such a lots of stairs to carry lots of luggage up. Bonuse the location. All extras we chargeable.

I don't know what exactly that means: 'All extras we chargeable' but I tell you that sheets and towels are free, WiFi is free, printing is free, hairdryers are free (on request at the reception) and we have free umbrellas, etc. We charge for the laundry and for coffee and tea (that we make for you).

We stayed in a private apartment that overlooked St. Stephen's Basilica. The views were amazing, the apartment was amazing and I would defiantly recommend Pals. The staff was very helpful and coordinated a taxi to and from the airport for us and the location of the apartment was perfect.

Great feeling hostel down the street from St. Stephens Cathedral and plenty of places to eat. Not too far or too close to the Jewish area so you can easily walk to bars/pubs in the evening. Definitely a place to stay in Budapest.

RE double room right by Deak Ferenc & Vaci Utca. Fab location-walking distance to main shopping area & great bars & restaurants. The flat itself was amazing with an INCREDIBLE bath! I have never seen a bigger bath or nicer bathroom! Great little kitchen & table to eat at. I would definitely return here & would urge others too as well. Wifi was broken during our stay so we had a discount, but could have moved rooms if we wanted to.
