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

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.
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.

    Great experience 👍. Amazing staff members help create a really fun atmosphere so that you feel welcome from the moment you step through the door. Clara and Miriam were super helpful at the reception with any questions I had, Quentin is an amazing cook for the family dinners, Elliot and Julia made the parties awesome and Rob helped us navigate the streets. ... and also a special shoutout to Adelaide from the Basilica team for her great work of bringing the two groups together every night.

    As always, I had a ball with Hostel One. Each and every one of the staff were helpful and friendly. I have absolutely no idea how they can party like that and still manage to constantly be full of energy and always willing to help/hang out. Theyre also super respectful of anyone who just wants to chill out, so you get a lovely balance if you don't feel like partying any night. They're all absolute legends. Couldn't recommend the hostel enough. Seán x

    Such a fun & friendly hostel. The volunteers & staff at Hostel One Budapest do everything they can to make sure that every moment is enjoyable & never boring! I received so many recommendations from staff of fun things to do around the city, enjoyed some of the greatest nights out with the hostel in the evenings, and even when falling ill, I had a comfy place to rest & always had people checking that I was okay! Loved my stay at the hostel so much & would definitely recommend.

    The hostel is perfect to meet people, they have a "family dinner" where you can eat together it is a good ice breaker. They also take you to a bar one of the nights free with your stay worth staying here

    I had a great stay last week at Hostel One in Budapest. My trip was very spur of the moment, as I booked the flight from Berlin and the stay at the hostel only a few hours before arriving. I was welcomed warmly by Miriam, who made the check-in very easy, providing tips for sights to see during the week, giving me directions to cafes and atm’s, and getting me signed up for the memorable boat party cruise with the hostel staff and guests along the Danube. Great staff, very fun and diverse guests!

    Hostel one Budapest was perfect for the 3 night stay I had in the city. The location is right in the centre of the Pest side and being close to everything made getting around the city a breeze. The healthy free dinner was a good break from the usual food I've had traveling and free earplugs are always a welcome addition. Special mention though does need to go to the staff who made the stay, be Clara who checked me in, Juliet our impromptu guide and Miriam who gave me directions when needed.

    Once again hostel one reigns champion for having a good time and making new friends. All the staff are awesome. The nightly dinners are well made and the nightlife is so much fun. Be warned... you might not want to leave this hostel. Seriously one of the best. Only thing to improve on is the bathrooms sorta smelled but other than that it’s perfect.
