This didn't feel like a hostel, it felt like a home! It definitely exceeded all of our expectations! I traveled with 3 of my friends and we booked a private 4 bedroom apartment. It was stunning!!! I will DEFINITELY DEFINITELY return!!!

Love, Love, Loved this place. We got an apartment off the square of the basilica. We only regret not being able to stay longer. Wifi was strong enough that we could use it outside in the square. The place was clean. The location was close to everything you need. Metro, groceries, bars, street food, and breakfast all under 5 min of walking.

Great hostel. We stayed in a private duplex, outside of the hostel'a main building, with 2 other private rooms. The common area here was super comfortable and fully equipped. The atmosphere 'though depended fully on the other 2 guests - which we gave lucky to be great people. Great location, next to the metro station and in front of the main basilica in Peste part - also near to the main pub zone. With the same price we couldn't get a shared room in Italy so value for money was fantastic! Cleani

Got there expecting a small apartment, got much more than we expected! We had a huge apartment with an amazing view, comfortable beds and excellent kitchen and bathroom facilities. Staff were friendly and helpful. I was able to borrow a hairdryer which was a lifesaver! Great value for money, would recommend to anyone.

After an upgrade to a huge apartment right next to St Stephen's, it's hard to complain. We had an incredible amount of space, with a bathroom, kitchen and living room. Not much to say, it was a great stay, would definitely stay again.

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.

My receptionist thought he couldn't speak English very well. We don't use any spam. It's a presumption. Besides we already knew his email address. We could have shown him the nearest self-service laundry but he didn't ask for it:(

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
