Property Description

Our Hostel is located on a huge green-belted-area, the Margaret Island in the heart of Budapest. Island Hostel features a large, 200 m2 terrace with the view of the Danube River, where you can just listen to the birds singing, rest or sunbathe in one of our hammocks, but if you looking for more activities, you can play tabletennis, bedminton and we can also lend you board- and cardgames too. If you’re hungry for more, we have a grill and other outdoor cooking possibilities too.

The hostel is surrended by a more than 900000 m2 park, with a running track around, so if you prefer active holidays, this is a perfect place for you. You can run every morning while the Sun rises, but you can also rent bikes and electric scooters from us to explore the Island and the city. We have outdoor gyms and swimming facilities around too: Hajós Alfréd Uszoda is just 5 minutes walk from us and Palatinus Beach, and Margitszigeti Atlétikai Centrum is also 200 metres from Island Hostel.

But holidays are not just for resting or doing sports, during the summer season we have an own, on-site pub, where you can have a refreshing beer, delicious burgers, lángos (it’s a hungarian traditional fast food!), and even various flavours of shishas. They offer an option for a la carte breakfast too with fresh orange juice or coffee.

All accommodation units come functionally furnished. Private rooms have double bed an each has an own bathroom. In the dormitories we have bunkbeds and all the dorm has it’s own bathroom and toilet.

    It was fabolous, living in actually the green heart of Budapest, in the middle of the river Danube is a unique experience even after years spent in Budpest. The wonderful Margaret island gives home to this hostel in an old boat house that is still operating on the ground level. It has a big, cozy roof top terrace with Danube and Pest side view. It is the middle of a colorful gastronomical line, with a quite a few various venues to choose from even without living the island.

    Amazing hostel. Staff super friendly and very helpful with any questions. Very friendly atmosphere met a lot of amazing people. Everything clean. It is a walk from lots of the main attractions but helps with passing the days. Amazing city and amazing hostel.

    The location is great: central but still tranquil since it is on the Margaret Island. Stég Pub has a good menu and 10% discount for Hostel guests. However, it opens at around 12:30, so you have to organize your breakfast by yourself. The hostel has its own terrace with view to the Danube. Actually that's wehre you will spend the most of your time. The atmosphere is like a typical hostel, the staff is very friendly. I will definitely come back!

    Overall very pleasant, the under bed lockers were a bit small. It is important to note that this hostel is a bit out of the way so if you want to be in the center of action, I’d look for somewhere else, but if you want a lore quiet retreat from the city, this is an ideal place to stay.

    Everything was good except for the part that it was piping hot during night in summer. They don‘t have the provisions to keep their rooms cool. Single fan in a 10 shared dorm. Massacare. Now windows/ventillation for bath and washroom

    We stayed just one night during December, the combination of price and facilities is perfect, you can't expect more, it could be perfect if you can open a little bit the window so fresh air can go through.

    Terrible atmosphere. I think that there was a guy living in my room. It was not clean. The staff was always somewhere else and not in the front desk, so every time that you needed something from them you needed to wait a long time.
