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.

Perfect location, super clean and great value for money! Not a party hostel at all, more of apartment rental. Always quiet and relaxing.

I cannot praise this hostel enough. When we arrived we were completely shocked by what we were getting for our money - first of all the staff went above and beyond the call of duty, always kind and really helpful. Second of all the location just cannot be bested, the view from our massive windows were of the Basilica, right in the heart of town. Our room was spacious, light and airy, you get your own kitchen and bathroom, which are lovely. Thank you so much Pal's!

The staffs are amazing,they are willing to give you all the details for traveling and any help for hostel. The room is also very clean and well requipmented. But it is a little pity that the hairdyer needed to rent.The location is nearly perfect.We hope to go back again if we visit Budapest again.

we weren't expecting our own shared apartment in such a great location 2 seconds from St Stevens basilica!! great value for money, there was no air con in the room but they did have a fan which we used all the time. for a couple just wanting to keep to themselves it was great, but if you wanted to socialise with other guests this probably isn't the place

Shirty staff. We arrived after 10 but despite warning hostel in advance that this would be the case, and receiving reassurances that this was OK, the member of staff on duty obviously hadn't been informed and was initially a bit irritated and annoyed with us. (This was hard as myself and my two children were exhausted after travelling for 14 hours on the train.) Got ticked-off again at check-out for not paying day after arrival (I had assumed payment on departure or arrival as is normal).

I asked my colleagues what had happened. The girl who let them in knew they would come late otherwise she weren't there (after 10 pm). She was not happy with her situation at all. There's no excuse for that! I apologize about her behavior! Payment is at check-in officially. In some cases if it's difficult (for example it's late at night) we let guests pay in the next day. Pal

Excellent location in the city center, very friendly and helpful staff, nice and large rooms. Common areas such as ktichen and bathroom were cleaned daily so they were very clean all the time. Excellent ice cream place next door ;-)

Nice place centrally located in Budapest. I would recommend ceiling fans in the rooms as the air gets very hot and stale and one oscillating tower fan is not adequeate to distribute all the hot air. Would totally recommend again

That's an idea! I'll check whether it is possible statically. Thanks, Pal
