Retox is by far the greatest hostel I've been to in Europe. The staff are amazing, they're always willing to help out and are the wildest craziest partygoers you'll ever meet. I've been back three times and it just gets better and better, if you want to make friends of a lifetime, see an amazing city and party harder then you have ever before then Retox in Budapest is definitely the place you must go. I love Retox and couldn't highly recommend it enough
stayed at retox for almost a week and it was the best six days of our holiday hands down! heaps of fun, loved everything about it and would recommend it to anybody. we also think fern needs a free shot
Best hostel i have ever stayed in. you need as many days here as possible! staff are a treat and the atmosphere of this place is unlike any other. if you dont stay here your doing it wrong. i want to live here.
Probably the best hostel i've ever stayed in. Best staff, especially Yogi, he gives the best map readings everrrrrrrr!
Great hostel with amazing staff. A ton of stuff to do during the day while you are in budapest and the events at night were awesome. You will get to know all the staff and the other people staying in the hostel, the atmosphere is really friendly. Cheers for the great times Retox.
What really made this hostel were the people: the people that worked there and the people that stayed there: overall great experience! One of the most fun places I stayed and the atmosphere was so warm and welcoming. Never a dull moment. The staff helped with everything. Felt like a home away from home by how easily it was to connect with everyone. Keep up the good work guys if I ever return to Budapest I'll stay here again! :)

The rooms are a little grimy, but it's a fun time here. Staff are all very welcoming and helpful, and they have pretty good most events of the week, often in conjunction with other hostels. The bar downstairs is convenient, but can be a little cramped.
Retox is a brilliant party hostel, I checked in at 10pm and the guys rushed around to make sure I could go out on the pub crawl with everyone else, which set the tone immediately. The staff here are great, like really great guys and girls that go the extra mile to make sure everyone has a fcking good time! Special mention to Spud!
4 nights of no sleep, the hostel Definatly lives up to its name and reputation, great fun and party environment, loved it lots
I actually don't know how we are going to leave this hostel. Instantly feel like a family from the minute you walk in the doors. This place is SO maple syrup. Pixie is a real sexy dude. you know that feeling you get when you acquire exactly what you desire... that is exactly what you get when you walk into retox. this place is so maple syrup and pixie is a babe

Insane time at Retox. Dont come if you arent young and ready to party every night. The most intense and loose hostel I have ever been to but also one of the most fun. They also do an amazing job of keeping the place clean even amongst the utter chaos.
Definitely the party hostel of Budapest. Great staff, great atmosphere. Love that the other hostels come to pre drink, organised activities every night. Loved the waterproof wristband swipe for the room, guaranteed no way to lose it. Be prepared to detox after the retox because it is one very loose place.
Love you cuntz :) Nothing but good times and outstanding vibes, cheap drinks that go down the bathroom sink, everyday is like a parade, and if you're lucky you'll probably get laid.
LOOSE AS HELL. The staff bring the party but are pretty good at helping you out and showing you the ropes in Budapest. The rooms are cleaner than you would think and everything is cleaned pretty regularly. Loads of great people.
Such amazing people and the sickest vibe! The staff really do make the stay that much more enjoyable! There's always something to do so make the most of your time there!!

If you're looking for a party hostel, you'll be alright here. Staff is friendly and fun and will make sure you have a good time. Gets a bit crazy, which may or may not be your cup of tea, but lockers are available to lock up your stuff as the rooms do get rather messy. Probably appeals more to a younger crowd, as the other travellers we spoke to (25+) found it too much and opted for other hostels after staying one night. Bar is open anyway so you don't need to stay in the hostel to get in.
If you are looking to party this is the place. Its a little dirty, very loud, and very fun! The staff are all a bit rowdy and unique and most are willing to help you out with anything!
Never been to a party Hostel like it before - it;s insane, atmosphere is great, staff are awesome, location is spot on. Would definitely stay here again.
I have been to a lot of hostels and this was the best party I have ever stayed at. Please ignore any bad reviews, and understand it is a party hostel - don't expect to sleep much, or any peace and quiet. But the staff and the atmosphere is exceptional. Not a relaxing place, but that's not why you choose to stay here. Of course the facilities are not perfect, but there is a conscious effort to keep the place clean. Do yourself a favor and experience retox. You won't regret it!
Had such an amazing time here! great place to both chill and party! The atmosphere is unique, unlike any other hostel i have experienced in europe. The staff are amazing as well and they make sure you are always having a good time, they have a personal relationship with each guest which is amazing for a hostel this size. Shout out to Pixie who is so attractive and stylish! If you want to have the best time of your life than come to this hostel! Will definitley return.
