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 a really great time at this hostel. Jurgen and the other volunteers were really friendly and made me feel welcome from the moment I arrived. The atmosphere in the hostel is really great and it’s perfect for solo Travelers wanting to meet other people, especially the free family style dinner each evening which is a great to meet others (and the food was good!). I’d definitely recommend this hostel.

    Can’t recommend Hostel One (anywhere) enough! I got into an accident whilst visiting, and the absolute sweetheart volunteer Jaydn has visited me every day to make sure I’m okay. Cleanliness, vibes, bed comfort are all spot on. Will continue to use Hostel One as my favoured hostel!
