Property Description

Our hostel is located in the 5th district. It is one of the lowest budget hostels in the city's heart -next to Astoria metro station, 250 metres from the Danube river and a short walking distance to the National Museum, the Grand Synagogue, the Central Mdarket, the Gellert Hill, St. Stephan's Basilica, the Elisabeth bridge -with the Rudas and Gellert Thermal Baths- among the most remarkable landmarks of the city.
The area has plenty of restaurants with good Hungarian traditional food, 24-hour supermarkets, bakeries, pizzerias, cafes, bars, shopping centers, cinemas, theaters, discos, pubs, etc. In a word, you will enjoy being in the best location of Budapest downtown, in the epicenter of the tourist and vibrating cultural life of the Hungarian capital.
Most dorms and private rooms are in the main building at Károly Körút 10, while others are in another building across the street, all in the same area. And, just during summer, some twins and doublebed rooms with a minimum stay of 4 nights are located in another apartment overlooking the river, with the most spectacular view of the Danube (as shown in one of the photos!).
We have free wi-fi access in all the rooms, a fully furnished kitchen with 2 refrigeretors, microwave oven, toaster, plates, cups, etc. -with free supply of tea, coffee, cocao powder, sugar, spices and cooking oil for self-catering, free luggage storage, free laundry facilities with washing soap included and free lockers with individual key.
In addition, we do not have curfew nor lock-out time, but quietness is highly appreciated after 10 pm!

NOTE: As we do NOT have 24-hours reception desk, it is very important to inform us of any changes in the arrival time as usually we keep the beds/rooms up-to 4 hours from the originally given arrival time due to the fact of non-show up reservations without any notice of cancellation. Check-out from 9-11 am. Check-in from 14:00 to midnight.

Latest Review

" I stayed here for 2 nights. It is very simple in terms of what it has to offer, the beds are average, I was given a cushion to effectivley sleep on. Showers are available but one of the shower doors was very loose and ready to fall off. Location is brilliant, step outside and you're in the central part of Budapest. Overall, for the money and a short stay, it was good. "
