Location is excellent and the apartment is beautiful. One of the staff members doesn't know English and doesn't know Budapest. Her recommendations were not good at all. We had to ask a tour guide for where to go to eat. The hostel staff as a whole is unprofessional. Their welcome email serves no purpose. Not even for directions. Don't know why they bother to ask you to reply to it. They will probably use it for spam. Laundry was too expensive. The taxi driver they called was very nice.
Had a great stay with Pal's! The staff was welcoming and friendly (especially Esther!) and the location was FANTASTIC-an apartment right next door to St. Stephen's. We has a last minute drop from our group and Pal's graciously allowed us to adjust our payment accordingly and even arranged for a cab to take us to the airport at the end of the trip. Great value and an excellent place to stay :) Only concern was heating issues with our hot water, once that was fixed, it was a lot better.
The staff were so helpful and kind; they went out of their way to make our trip run as smoothly as possible. Plus, the location couldn't have been better.
We had a separate apartment from the hostel which was really nice and new. Only issue was there weren't really window curtains on the bedroom window opening into the courtyard. Location and staff are both awesome
One of the best hostels and favorite cities my group visited. A fantastic apartment right next to the church. Easy to go out and see the city from there. Beds were extremely comfortable. Would definitely use Pal's next time I go to Budapest.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights. A wonderful hostel! The staff came and met us from a booked taxi, which was lovely service. We arrived late but they still wanted to give us as much information as possible. The location was fantastic also. Thank you
Fantastic place to stay in Budapest! Friendly staff and a really good location to explore Budapest. Totally enjoyed our stay at our accommodation. Would definitely recommend others to stay at Pal's Hostel if you go to Budapest!
Upon arrival to the reception the staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. We were taken to our room (which was in a building separate to the reception area). Where we stayed was very unloved and needed a lot of work doing to it (eg.damp in the bathroom) As it was only a place to rest we went out for the evening and could not find the hostel when we left as it was not signposted. We spent over 1 hour looking for it. It was a very noisy night - we were not satisfied with our stay
We loved our stay with Pal's and would definitely recommend this Hostel to our friends. The location was perfect for us as we did not want to stay in the heart of the tourist section and this location is still close to trains, cable cars.... and there was a lot to do in the same vicinity. Also appreciated that Pal's was very easy to communicate with via email and were very attentive to our needs in responding quickly.
I can't speak highly enough of Pals hostel. Our room was in an apartment away from the main building, overlooking the Basilica. It was beautiful! Clean rooms and bathroom. Super friendly and helpful staff. Wifi worked well. Walking distance to most things. Great value hostel. I would stay here again anytime. Thanks Pals!!!
It's a little weird that the office is in a different building but the staff was extremely friendly and accomodating. They walked us to our apartment style hostel and showed us the room. There's a common area that is extremely nice and then each of us had our rooms. NOTE: There are only double beds - no twin beds in any of the rooms. The view is AMAZING. Overlooking the square and a beautiful church. Very easy to make friends as we all hung out in the common area and went out that night.
It is a very good hostel. sometimes a bit noisy, but not at night, so we could have a good night of sleep A awesome hostel with a great atmosphere. We loved it!

Overall, alright - nothing exceptional. Good location, however, the shared bathroom situation is not ideal.
Completely outstanding - STAY HERE WHEN IN BUDAPEST! Amazing location and incredibly comfortable at a bargain price.
We had a great apartment to stay in, beautiful view of the Basilica and great location.
