I got the twin suite to myself by luck of the draw for a very good bargain and I absolutely loved it!!! Nothing to complain about. The staff were excellent, my room kitchen and ensuite was tidy, location was fantastic and being able to have that privacy after all these days in large hostels was like a fresh of breath air!! Thank you Pals hostel! Awesome!!!

The view from our apartment was literally the most stunning view in Budapest.

We booked a room for two people and it was a real flat that we had, very well located (even tough not located in the main building where the hostel is). The room itself was very clean and well furnished - a kitchen with all the necessary elements, separated toilets, very comfortable bed, etc.

We stayed for one night in a standard twin bed private room in a spacious apartment (5th floor) with an amazing view. The staff is very helpful and the location is great so all the main attractions are in the walking distance. Kind regards from Croatia :)

Excellent accomodation, very friendly staff and amazing neighbourhood! We enjoyed it very much. Some minor attention points: The neighbourhood and the Hostel itself can be noisy at times during the night. (people getting in, outside on the streets...). Also, the lights of the hallway were too bright, making the room too bright to sleep. So we were obliged to put some sheets on the glass panels of the doors - to dim the light in the room. Mattresses a bit too thin to be comfortable.

It's the perfect place to do a touristic week-end in town. And enjoy the advices from a hostel combined with the comfort of your own appartment. The location is excellent for the visits.

We really enjoyed our stay at Pals! The location is amazing and it was nice to have a private room and apartment style accommodation for a couple nights! The staff were amazing and super helpful. They give you many great recommendations and have a little package of maps, brochures, etc set up for when you arrive. Loved Budapest and the hostel helped us get the best experience for the time we had it explore it!

Enjoyed my stay in my private room. Not your traditional hostel as it states it is apartments around the square. Great location. Enjoyed the privacy.

Recommend to everyone staying in Budapest! This is one of the best hostels we've stayed in in Europe, and actually better than some Airbnb's we've been to! The staff are so sweet and friendly. Even when I made a mistake booking the wrong day they were absolutely professional but still kind and understanding. It was like having a touch of relaxed, friendly luxury during our trip, and we actually came back a few days later! Next time we come to Budapest we'll be staying again, if we're welcome!

I loved staying in an apartment style hostel, we had our own space to spread out but could still hang out in the common area when we wanted to. Amazing location, right beside the largest church in Budapest, and within walking distance of all the attractions and restaurants. Highly recommend the (very well priced) in-house masseuse who comes right to your room! The staff were so helpful, they have all the answers to your questions. Would definitely stay here again if we ever return to Budapest!

A very spacious and we'll connected apartments right in the heart of the city. They were also very kind in letting us checkin slightly earlier. Front staff was extremely helpful and gave us some solid recommendations. Overall, one of the best hostels we have stayed in till the time. Book it without any second thoughts!

Perfect location directly next to the basilica and 5 mins walk from the metro Great value for money Cancelled train meant we stayed two more nights and it was just as cheap although the room we stayed in the second time was pretty creepy but still as good Wifi is good and so is the little kitchen there

Pal's is located right in the heart of everything. The apartments are really cool, the showers were super clean, and our staff (Flora) was the nicest and most helpful person during our whole 10 day trip where we stayed at 4 different hostels. Highly recommend this place!
