Property Description

*** THIS IS A SOCIAL HOSTEL THAT LIKES TO PARTY!!! Reservations are only recommended if you want to meet other travellers ***

This is Hostel One Budapest, our original hostel in Budapest. Welcome.

If you’ve come here looking for a bed, we have plenty: all clean and comfortable.
But we’re not in the bed business… We’re here to provide you with an experience like no other.

What sets us apart from other hostels, is that we offer an incredibly social atmosphere.
Our staff are travellers just like you, but we aren’t just here to party. We’ll cook you dinner, take you on daytime adventures, and share our expert knowledge of the city.

We don’t have any curfews or weird rules, because we like to have fun ourselves. At night, our staff turn into professional party people. After dinner, we gather everyone together to play drinking games in our bar. When it closes, we’ll take you out to enjoy Budapest’s best parties and ruin bars, and party with you too!

Our hostel is perfectly located. Not only for exploring the city by day, but also for the stumble home at the end of the night.
There is an ATM, convenience store, tobacco shop and 24-hour food, all a short distance from us.

Our aim is to show you the best possible time in Budapest. We are perfectly suited for backpackers, and solo travellers. If you are travelling in a small group but want to meet others, then this is the place for you too!

Our common areas include our bar, kitchen & chill-out lounge.

We provide you with the following for FREE:
- City maps
- WiFi
- Family dinners
- Computers
- Luggage storage
- Bed linen; your bed will be made prior to your arrival
- 24/7 reception
- Tourist information; for the city, and also assistance booking tickets to your next destination
- Lockers
- Tea & coffee
- Hairdryer
- Iron

For a small price we offer:
- Towels for rent (600 HUF / 2 EUR)
- Padlocks for sale (1500 HUF / 5 EUR)

We have an age limit of 18 - 39 years old. If you are outside of this age range upon arrival to the hostel, we have the right to cancel your booking without refund of your deposit, as well as charging the applicable cancellation fee. Our other hostel in Budapest, Hostel One Basilica, is slightly more flexible. Please refer to their page for more details.

Unfortunately we DO NOT have air-conditioning in the rooms. This is fairly common in Central/Eastern Europe, and of course we have fans available.

Thanks for reading, we hope to have you stay with us!

Come party with us at Hostel One Budapest! More than just a bed for the night, we want to give you the true Budapest experience, which is why we have free tours of the city every day and pub crawls or parties every night. We start the night with a free communal dinner, carry on until closing time with drinking games in our bar, then show you the best ruin bars in the city. Recover the next day in front of the TV while you upload party pics via the free Wi-Fi.


After a heavy night, your bed is never far away thanks to our central location. Reaching us from any transport terminal is simple, too: from Budapest Airport, take the 100E shuttle to Astoria M and walk 5 minutes to our door – this’ll take 45 minutes total. Keleti Train Station is 11 minutes away via metro, just board the M2 for two stops to Astoria. As for sightseeing, you'll get great views from the neo-Gothic terrace of Fisherman's Bastions, 30 minutes on foot from our door, and you can reach Buda Castle (home to the National Gallery) by train in 20 minutes.

Rooms and Dorms

We may have a party atmosphere, but we also want you to have a comfortable stay in our mixed dorms – which come complete with free linen. A little privacy goes a long way, so we designed our own POD beds to help you sleep soundly. We offer luggage storage if you’re arriving early or leaving late, and there's a locker for each bunk, too.

Extras and activities

Tend to get carried away in those ruins bars? No worries, partying late's fine – our 24-hour reception is always open. Next morning, cook a communal breakfast in our kitchen (food is always the answer) or take it easy in our chill-out room. Once you’ve seen the Great Market Hall and Heroes' Square, pick up a free city map to see what spots are left to visit.

    This was my first time travelling solo and all my nerves went away the minute I arrived to hostel one budapest! The staff was so friendly with showing me around and making sure I knew about all the events going on. Everyone I met within the hostel travelling were such cool people and we so open to talking and getting to know each other. Super nice vibe and environment!I would definitely go to the boat party, szimpla bar, and the thermal baths as these three things were the highlights of my trip!

    Absolutely loved this hostel! Lockers were big enough for my backpack, bed was comfortable and clean. The staff was amazing and got everyone involved in the drinking games and going out to the bar. I really loved that when we got back at 3am there was staff making sure that if we wanted to talk, we go the bar which is far away from the rooms. Really respected that some guests need to sleep. This was useful my second night when I was sick and couldn’t go out! Absolutely recommend

    One of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed at! The locations amazing, the staff are super helpful and friendly, and the dinners (that are free) were so good- not to mention they had a vegetarian option every night! It is more of a party hostel but there is also a lounge to watch Netflix if you want a night in instead! There are free walking tours during the day and then staff takes you to popular places at night. I would 100% recommend and I will choose hostel one in every city I get the chance.

    My experience can be described as nothing short of amazing. Rooms are standard size and clean. The bathrooms accommodate all guests even in peak getting ready time on weekends. Wonderful location close to all the bars and easy walk to the sites. These all make for a great hostel, but it is the staff that truly makes the experience so incredible. The inclusive and fun attitudes make for a fun and memorable experience. Perfect for solo travellers looking for a fun social experience in Budapest.

    Awesome hostel with awesome staff, best location, excellent free dinners, and a good vibe all round. Only thing to improve on is the kitchen, it's quite small but not a big deal as they cook you dinner anyway. Would return for sure

    This is a party hostel, and it shows. There are no guest standards and people do as they please. The staff was nice enough, but I would not stay here again. We ran into a few incidents that just wasn't worth our time.
