Property Description

In the heart of Budapest, next to its most iconic market you will find our little peaceful place to release your bags and your minds. More than a comfortable bed, we offer a safe and respectful environment where it is pleasant to read a book, chill down after a long day sightseeing, or share your best stories with other travellers. We also have some fun boardgames, tea and coffee available through the day, and fast wifi ... connect those 3 the way you like.

Although we are not a party hostel, we love to witness groups forming, smiles transforming into laughters, and plans popping out of the blue. You can lean on our staff to get the hottest spots where to go out, but fear them also if you think our living room can be that place. Some of us born and raised here, others coming from strange countries (who knows France anyway) but we all share that passion for Budapest and all it has to offer. Sit down with us, we're always happy to know your likes and match them with some personal recommendations that might fill your days or nights.

Please note that checkin is ONLY available from 14:00 to 21:00. If you would arrive out of those times, please consider a 24h reception hostel (we are NOT) or contact us early to get potential other check-in options. Check-out from 09:00 to 11:00.

We are open minded humans, respect and encourage different view points and perspectives. Nevertheless, in a concern of keeping common interests, we don't accept children under 18yo (yes you are children) nor too wise grown ups above 45yo (no you are not old).

Payment upon arrival by cash (EUR, HUF, USD)
We do not offer breakfast, but we allow you to cook some for us or other guests ;)
We are a completely non smoking/vaping/whatever-lungs-killer-thing, but we are not monsters either, there is a smoking area reachable in slippers View House Rules

    Such a lovely hostel with really kind staff. Our room was very spacious and gorgeously laid out with a very nice calming aesthetic. Many showers so there was always one free when needed, and it felt very homely and chill which I really liked. Everyone we met was lovely, and staff were very attentive to our needs which made all the difference. Would recommend this place, as well as the excellent location right beside the Great Market Hall!

    The Rooms are huge with tall ceilings and very clean! We had everything we needed. (Good wlan, a kitchen, a bathroom, a washing machine) The location is a bit loud in the morning but it didn’t bother us because everything was in walking distance :) We were there during a heatwave warning and the rooms don’t have AC but we got an ventilator so it was fine.

    On arrival I was upgraded to a private room in an apartment. It was cleaned same as the hostel so quite happy about that. Close to metro but in a fairly quiet neighborhood. I would stay again.

    Host was nice and welcoming. However, we booked two beds in the same dorm room and could only sleep in the same room if we payed more. We didn’t mind not being in the same room so it was okay for us but just incase some people mind, I thought I’d mention something. Kitchen was small but had everything you need and it was nice to have coffee or tea in the morning. The best reason to stay at this hostel is that the location is AMAZING! Worth it just for that :).

    Julian, the proprietor, is very kind and helpful. However, the hostel itself is very old, outdated, and run down. The building seems to be in disrepair, the bathrooms are old and not very clean, the female dorm is only accessible by passing through the mixed dorm or the shared bathroom. There was a broken fan and a random vaccum in the cluttered and messy dorm room. There were not enough outlets in the door for the 6 beds, there was no soap for the kitchen sink. All in all, this was not a good experience. It felt unsecured, unclean, disorganized, old, outdated and dirty. It was also fairly expensive compared to other options so I don’t understand how it has a high rating.
