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!

    This hostel is truly the best hostel I have ever been. Starting from location, which couldn’t be better, to the overall atmosphere of the hostel and the amazing people that work there, everything will make you feel that it was the right place to stay. Plus, if you are traveling alone and want to party and discover the city, definitely the best place to stay. 200% recommended.

    STAY HERE!!! I will be staying at hostel 1 in every city they are available. Great for solo travelers, just a perfect hostel experience. The staff is incredibly friendly & they always have something to do for guests. Right in the middle of the city so close to everything. Their sister hostel has a bar & planned day & night events.

    Amazing location! It’s a bit bigger than the other hostel one locations i’ve been to so I found the atmosphere to be a bit less inviting but still not bad!! Good facilities and it’s clean. Book here if location to attractions is your main concern. Also has a killer transfer process to the airport, the direct bus is right outside.

    Great place to stay and great value for money. Staff (/family) are very friendly and welcoming and make you feel comfortable right from the get go. The only downside was some of the toilets were awkwardly set up to use and toilet seats were broken, but it's manageable. Thanks Tati and Tolbin and all the rest.

    A great hostel for travellers looking to be social and meet new people. The free dinner encourages you to sit down with others and there are organised afternoon and evening activities everyday. Good location, only downside for me was a lack of air con.

    Great location and good place for socializing. But half of their washrooms were clogged and other half were literally very bad... cleanliness is really something they need to look in to. Am surprised how they hv such good stars OR aid it nobody actually bothers how the washrooms are?

    I can’t give this place a good review. Expensive, unbearably hot room, non working fan, very noisy, so-so facilities, not great beds, impossible to sleep. If I were 22 or under I’m sure I’d have had a great time, as it’s a party hostel in the purest sense, staff very warm and great, and not an a person over 22 to be seen. I, however, am over 30, and checked out within hours of checking in. No refund of any days given, no response to my email to them at all. Hostel One in Barcelona is better.
