Fantastic apartments, we stayed in 2 different ones due to booking our second night late. The "basic" room was huge, clean and only shared a kitchen with one other couple. The "standard" room was smaller but the apartment it was in was stunning and had a beautiful view through huge windows. Only shared this one with 2 other couples. Clean, amazing location and lovely apartments. What a find!!!

Great place to stay for a few days. Only downfall is sharing a bathroom between 6 people as it makes it difficult to get a turn in the morning. Great staff that were super helpful

They stayed in a room in a two-stair apartment. 3 rooms and one bathroom upstairs, But there is another bathroom downstairs as well :)

Great value for money, especially considering the location. Staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Having said that, it is a shame that the office is in the main lounge area, so you never really feel you can relax without being watched. Also noticed that although the office hours were from 10-6, there always seemed to be someone there around 10pm, which made me feel like I was being "monitored". If you are after somewhere quiet and central though, this is the place to go.

One guy of the cleaning staff lives here. He uses the computer of the reception for private purposes in the evening:)

Best hostel ever. We were greeted by friendly staff and provided maps and information on Budapest. Our room was plenty of room for two people and was private and secure and had an amazing view as well. My only regret was not being able to stay longer

I would not call this a hostel, because it felt like having an apartment to ourselves. We were staying in a basic double bed room and it was great for a weekend away. The bathroom was clean and spatious. The location is very central, but it was not noisy at all. We would definetely go back here when in Budapest and recommend this hostel to our friends.

Great accommodation for both a city break or a longer stay! Friendly staff, clean room and excellent location. Plus, you cannot feel more secure with that bunch of keys you are given at the check-in :D One of the best hostels I've stayed at, definitely going back! Already recommended it to my friends.

I expected a typical hostel experience, but ended up with a beautiful apartment overlooking the Basilica square. Truly wonderful experience.

Best way to visit Budapest, located very central, so that you can see the main sights by walking. We had an appartment which we shared with two other persons so it was more like a "communal residence" than a typical Hostel. It is no Party Hostel what we really enjoyed. Also very clean and comfortable. We recommend this Hostel!

A lovely hostel with a warm welcome. Good facilities and great value for money. In the perfect location, close to train stations/metros/buses and the city centre. Staff were always happy to help and very polite. Great vibes in the hostel, and with three doors to our room we felt quite secure indeed. Would definitely recommend.

We had a great experience with Pal's Hostel before we'd even arrived in Budapest! The staff here were great! We arrived at nearly 11pm and one of the staff members came back to meet us and give us tips about places to visit, eat, bars, etc. We stayed in an apartment with bathroom and kitchen facilities shared between two private rooms. The hostel is within walking distance of many of the main sights, tram links and metro. Overall really good value and I'd happily go back to stay here again.

Really nice hostel, highly recommended. It is cheap and you can sleep in fewer people, so you can save energy to the bars, pubs and clubs of the city. The staff are really friendly and they give you good local tips for places and eating around.

Wonderful staff, very nice and helpful. Gorgeous comfortable flat, which was very clean when we arrived. Also a great location in the center of town for a good price. I would definitely recommend this place!

Great place to stay in. Really close to St. Steven's Basilica (about 20 meters), and to the jewish neighborhood where there are tons of cool stores and bars. I totally recommend to stay at Pal's hostel.
