Come and stay at our party hostel to meet people from all around the world! Hostel One Basilica is your ideal spot for a fun and social stay in Budapest. You'll see from our free city tours, nightly communal dinners and group drinking games that we design our activities around getting everyone mingling – and we'll also take you out to the city's trendiest ruin bars. We've got a bright kitchen (cook for yourself and save some cash) and our 24-hour reception always has staff around to give you tips.


To get to Hostel One Basilica from Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport, jump on shuttle bus 100E. It takes about 35 minutes from outside the main terminal to the Deák Ferenc tér stop where you get off. We're in the centre of the city, a 13-minute walk from Széchenyi Chain Bridge which is one of the most famous sights in Budapest. You'll get a memorable view of the Danube River from here. As we sit between two tram stops – Deák Ferenc tér and Bajcsy-Zsilinszky út – you can easily go across the river and up the hill to the towering Citadella in four stops without breaking too much of a sweat.

Rooms and Dorms

We're not here to boast, but because we're in one of Budapest's oldest buildings our ceilings and rooms are huge! Every dorm – whether it's mixed or female-only – has sturdy pod beds, big lockers and linen included in the rate. If you want a private option with a bit of extra space to yourself, we've got twins and doubles to pick from.

Extras and activities

Head to the lounge to pore over our free city maps or browse your social feeds with the free Wi-Fi. We've also laid on computers, hairdryers and tea and coffee so you don't have to dig into your wallet. If you need a towel, padlock or the laundry facilities there's a small fee. The elevator means you don't have to heave your backpack up any stairs!

    Had an amazing stay here. The staff is amazing and welcoming, and the dinners are great! They have nightly events, and do their best to include everyone. Thanks for a great stay! The only downside is the lack of aircondition (I stayed in the 6 people dorms) which made it difficult to sleep on the warmer nights.

    One of my favorite hostels ever! Had the most incredible time in Budapest thanks to the hostel and all the people I met here. The location couldn’t be any better and the free nightly dinner is not only actually good but it makes it incredibly easy to meet people before going out for the night. Highly recommend!

    Staff were really nice and friendly. They were always there to sort things out. It was cool that the hostel organised an event every evening which made it easier to chat and meet people. The atmosphere was chilled but you could still have fun if you wanted. Was a very happy middle ground.

    Had an amazing stay here! Cannot beat the location and the staff is more friendly and engaging than any I’ve ever come across. Dinners were WAY better than expected. Dorms were clean and spacious with big lockers. Only complaint was that the bathrooms could be in rough shape some time, most of them smelled a little moldy and one in particular was always flooding. But when I brought it up with the staff it was dealt with immediately.

    We had the best 3 nights here! Very sociable hostel as everyone can sit down together to eat the dinner which is provided and then a member of staff takes everyone on a night out. The facilities are basic, but completely fine for what we needed. The only negatives I would point out is that for our 14 bed room there was only 1 fan so it was exceptionally hot all the time. We were also taken to the sister hostel to pre drink on all 3 nights even though everyone wanted to stay and pre drink at home

    A really fun hostel in Budapest, extremely central with a great social atmosphere. The staff were lovely and really inclusive, especially Rodrigo who checked us in and Gabriel who made a delicious dinner (and the English girl who took us out to ruin bars). Only downsides - a handful of bathrooms for the whole hostel and one fan for TWELVE people in our dorm - quite stuffy in the summer heat. Altogether highly enjoyable way to get to know Budapest and its nightlife especially.
