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 - 36 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.

    Hostel One Budapest is ran by a wonderful team that is knowledgable of the city and is able to bring every one together. From the group dinners and drinking games to the wonderful social life created every day and night at Hostel One Budapest was wonderful. With a wonderful location next to many bars, clubs, and restaurants Hostel One Budapest makes a great home base. I will definitely be coming back.

    Thanks to the staff at Hostel One, and the amazing travellers I met, Budapest became my favourite part of my trip. The staff are amazing, friendly, the facilities and rooms are nice, clean and i felt safe having my stuff there. The dinner and drinking games followed by bar crawls and boat parties were so fun, and a great way to meet people, that I’m happy to now call friends. Stay here!!!

    ALWAYS BOOK HOSTEL ONE. Amazing staff, bang for your buck, and easy to meet people. A decent party hostel as well with its very own bar. Security was a bit touch and go at first but Adiel & Simona , the new managers, fixed all my concerns immediately. Amazing people and even better hosts. Beds were comfortable, showers needed a bit of a cleaning, no A/C but it was much cooler on the second floor than the first if you need that accommodation.

    Come here to get trashed - loved the people: engaging staff, cool bar, made lots of friends here, but otherwise NOT recommended. Maybe we got rly unlucky, but our first night = worst hostel experience ever. Downstairs 6-bed room felt unsafe/prison-like/unclean; we had incredibly disrespectful roommates (had sex in our room and others were really creepy and rude - staff didn't really help the situation). Bathrooms were OK but communal shower space was dirty. Free dinner was very basic/not great.
