Was upgraded to a larger room which was nice but was not told before i arrived that it would be in another building. Fortunately it was not far away and the view of the Basilica was great.

Yes, this is a chain of apartments here. Within few hundred meters:)

Location of check in and apartment are excellent, with great transport connections. Beautiful authentic local apartment block with our apartment overlooking the square. Bathroom was good although a standing shower would have been preferred. Staff were friendly and helpful on arrival, although slightly disinterested on departure... this seemed to be a Budapest hallmark, so not particular to this hostel. The bells can be quite loud with the windows open in lovely weather, but we got used to it.

Wifi was a bit hit and miss. Worked well when you were close to the router. Everything else was amazing. Apartment was spacious and clean with good facilities. It was in a great location just off the basilica's square.

We stayed in two large flats in the same building where reception area is. We were a group of 9 people. The flats were great, reception was friendly, and location is fantastic.

This was our last night in Budapest after being in Budapest/Prague. Our group wanted a more private hostel due to us having to leave at 4:30am to get to the airport. This place was perfect for that. Had a private room overlooking the square of the Basilica. Didn't meet any other people while we were there but considering it was our last night we didn't mind. Place was clean and it was the perfect setting to end our trip.

If you want to stay in budapest you should stay in pal's hostel. Staff is so friendly and helpful. Localization is perfect and room really clean. If I will go next time to Budapest I definitely stay there again! Thanks for piano :)

The best hostel booking in my life.

WOW!! Myself and 3 friends were absolutely amazing by the apartment we stayed in! We opted for 4 bed private bathroom and we were given the keys to a 7 bed apartment with the most beautiful view of St Stephens basilica from our balcony! I would highly recommend staying at Pals, location is perfect - right in the heart of the tourist district and a ten minute walk from the Jewish quarter.

We had a wonderful stay at Pal's Hostel, and couldn't have asked for a better experience. As a group of 3 teenagers on our first trip away, the security of our apartment was excellent and very reassuring in an unknown area. We were also given plenty of advice on how to best spend our time in the beautiful city, and had a great trip!

It´s a really nice hostel and the staff was very friendly - they gave us a lot of tipps where to go and what to do, which ways to take... Besides it really felt like home! ;)

Stayed in a twin room and everything there was nice and clean. For some reason didn't get the gas stove to work in our kitchen, the problem may be me.. Anyway, staff super helpful and location is perfect just next to the Basilica and everything within walking distance. Didn't meet so many fellow travelers maybe just because stayed with my friend in a private room and there weren't many people hanging out in the common area. Perfect hostel for couples I would say.

Hostel is big, spacious and clean. Would probably be good to add a couple of fans.

Had a brilliant stay at pals, such a central location and the bed was comfy and clean, the kitchen was small but perfectly useable for quick meals! Really handy to have all the facilities especially air con and a fan as it was boiling hot in Budapest!! Had a great 3 night stay, so cheap for what you get. Will deffo stay if we go to Budapest again

Not a bad place to stay, not too clean, and the room smelled funny. Security was good, and staff we're also good. The location is amazing. Shame about the smell.
