We stayed in the 3-person apartment for four nights. The apartment was brilliant - big, spacious and clean. It's in a great central location near to the St Stephens Basilica. Despite not having a 24-hour reception desk, one of the staff members was kind enough to meet us to let us into the apartment even though we arrived at midnight on a Sunday! Could not recommend this apartment enough. If we're ever back in Budapest we would definitely want to stay here again.

This hostel was perfect. Best location in the city, very nice rooms, and the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly - the owner even let us stay in the foyer an extra night so we could catch our 4AM train. Excellent value for money - could not recommend this more.

Absolutely loved our three night stay in Pals. On arrival staff were happy to give us lots of useful information about the city, which helped greatly. Our room was modern and clean, with a comfortable bed and couch. The location of this hostel is incredible, couldn't have asked for better! I would stay again in Pals in a heart beat. Highly, highly recommend.

There were 5 of us staying in a large private apartment that ended up being much bigger than I was expecting. The staff was great and the location was perfect. I would definitely recommend staying at this hostel!

Potential customer's should be aware that the flat is in front of the "Basilika", hence the noise its bells will penetrate in your brain every morning at 9am (and sometimes during the evening, depending on the day of the week and the relogious ceremonies). And when I say "penetrate", I mean it literally - I've never heard such a loud sound in my life!!!

I with a friend were staying at Pal's hostel for 5 nights. We got an apartment in a really great and beautiful location. It was on the top floor right in front of St. Stephen Basilica. The apartment consist of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with a very large living room. Very reasonable price for a very nice room and apartment. Would definitely come back and recommend it for everyone.

We came here after a heavy few days at Sziget Festival (RECOMMENDED), and were so pleased we did. The place was absolutely spotless, the staff really friendly, and it was just what we needed to recover after partying. This hostel is quiet, and really well located to walk to many bars, restaurants and sites of interest. I would not hesitate to recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Budapest- the room type makes it suitable even for couples looking for a long weekend break. FAB!

I would barely call this a hostel, the location is perfect, you're in the middle of the center. We had a beautiful view from our chamber, we had air-conditioning, the bed was lovely, we had a private refrigerator and furnace and even a bathtub. I would definitely come back here if I found myself in Budapest again!

We just loved everything about the hostel. It was in a great location, not far from the city center, and we had a cool view of St. Steven church from one of our windows. The room was huge, clean, with a lot of space and services, really an awesome place to stay, even only for chilling out. We would definitely recommend it to our friends.
