The Loft is a very welcoming hostel, from the moment I checked in I was treated like family. Given a map and tips to navigate while I'm in Budapest and within a couple hours of being at the hostel I had made new friends and was off to dinner and the ruin bars. The hostel is clean, safe, WiFi is good, clean towels and sheets are provided, and the location is great. I emailed The Loft a 2 days before asking if I could come early and Emily who works there made it happen! Will stay here again!
the most social hostel i've ever stayed at, a small community where everyone in the hostel actually went out together
I had an amazing time at this hostel! It feels like home away from home. The staff is so nice and always willing to help. Amazing people amazing hostel! I would definately recommend it!!
Probably my favorite hostel so far. Really homey hostel- it felt like I was staying at a friend's place, not a hostel. The staff was friendly, and this didn't really feel like a party hostel, but still had an awesome atmosphere. And the location is so convenient. I'd definitely recommend staying here!
We had a very pleasant stay at the Loft Hostel - it has a very relaxed atmosphere and it is easy to talk to people and hang out together at night. Important to note, though, that it is a pretty small hostel (around 15 beds) so if you are up for meeting lots of people to go for crazy partying, this may not be your perfect place. For everyone just looking to chill in a relaxed atmosphere, would definitely recommend.
Great place to stay in a great location away from noise but near the main street. Only 2 bathrooms so there can be a bit of waiting. But everything else was perfect. Nice common room and kitchen where you can chill out. Staff provided a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
easily, one of the best hostels i stayed at. it has a laid back and friendly atmosphere. i loved the amount of art/ painted walls throughout the kitchen space and reception it gave it a funky vibe too. all if the staff were very friendly and were able to answer all of my questions very easily and gave me suggestions that seemed to have a more local feel. another asset of the hostel was the ease of ability to meet people. i would definitely recommend it for solo travellers.
I can't recommend The Loft enough. If you're tired of all the impersonal hostel chains, this is the place to be! Very small and cozy, the staff are incredibly welcoming and make it very easy for guests to mingle. It felt more like staying with a friend who lives in Budapest. They also give you an intro to the city with their own map of the area which was PRIME.
I loved the personal introduction and the offer to have tea while the map was brought out and a quick summary was done for the area. I know you must go through it several times a day but it was really nice to have that face to face interaction. Everyone at the hostel was so welcoming and nice, it really boosted my desire to find smaller hostels in the future.
I had a great stay at the loft. Really huge dorm so we weren't sleeping on top of each other. Everyone was so helpful too. I would definely come back!
Amazing hostel, especially great for a solo traveler. Met lots of like-minded travelers that I spent my days in Budapest with. This place really did feel like staying over at a friend's place. The staff were great - super friendly and helpful in advising things to see and do around the city, as well as recommending places to eat. I liked it so much that I came back for two more nights at the end of my trip! Will definitely stay here if I am ever in Budapest again.
Absolutely loved this hostel, it was perfect for a solo traveller as it was very friendly and cosy, and had a great communal sofa area and kitchen where it was so easy to meet people. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and were very careful about security which is reassuring. Great location, good facilities, lovely atmosphere, can't really fault it (except for my mattress being a bit thin, but the pros of the hostel far outweigh this). Would 100% recommend, it made my stay in Budapest.
Made me feel like at home. Very good location. Helpful and nice staff. Really recommend it.
Of my 25-country travel in Europe, this is probably the best hostel I have stayed in. Amazing location, the staff is really amazing, they truly become friends. The hostel is also a great place for meeting people, nice atmosphere, good price, and beautiful. I really recommend this place. Renato (From Mexico)

It's a one of a kind hostel,which doesnt feel like a hostel,but like a house, and it has a unique atmosphere where you can feel very comfortable.I totally recommend it. The owner is a very nice guy,very kind and very helpful. wish they were more guys and hostels like this! Agustín
LOVED my stay here. As a solo traveler, this place is perfect with the open common room and large sleeping rooms. The staff was fantastic, so friendly and eager to give advice and help, such as with bus times and places to eat/drink. Definitely for those who are looking to meet people and hang out. The location is perfect, right by food and bars, the sites are all nearby as well. The "key" is a code on a wristband, a perfect "if lost please return to:". I loved it! Would absolutely recommend
It was an absolut pleasure to stay. Staff is super friendly, always there and always trying to help out! Also the price was absolutly fantastic! Woundnt stay at any other place in Budapest! Highly recommended! Cant wait to return!

The place to stay in Budapest if you want ease, friendliness, and a great experience. This was a super cozy hostel and had a terrific home-y feel. Ferci is incredible and was super accommodating to our large group of 7 people. The location is great and provided a quality calm environment to get some sleep. Follow the directions provided to find this place as it is somewhat tricky but well worth it.
