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 surrounded 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: Hajos Alfred Uszoda is just 5 minutes walk from us and Palatinus Beach, and Margitszigeti Atltikai 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, lngos (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 its own bathroom and toilet. Island Hostel also offers fully equipped common kitchen make the comfort for the guests to feel at home.

ps.: our WiFi is really fast and available in the whole building :)

    An amazing place to stay. Central to everything in the city, you'll likely only need one tram to get anywhere. The balcony is fantastic and you'll find it hard to leave at times. When arriving, make sure you walk on the inside of the island rather than the running track around the outside or you'll find yourself backtracking!

    Such a cool concept of a hostel, staying on the island is great but can be a trek to the centre however there’s trams constantly so super ideal. Island is beautiful and loved this hostel

    amazing location, prettiest and cutest hostel with really nice outdoor area, rooms nice enough. only thing is there are no locks on the doors to the rooms and the lockers were too small for a standard backpack. we also had to change room half way through and the staff just moved our things from the lockers and left them without security in the common area without prior warning that we would have to change room. not lowering rating however as they were apologetic and put it down to new staff- doubt it would

    Great place to stay in, when you want to see both Buda and Pest - so nice location. Cheap drinks and a nice bar, with 10% discount if you stay at the hostel. A very nice party places for young people and the island has a lot to offer: beautiful musical fountain at night, ruins and a pet zoo. Our dorm was a bit hot, but we lived with cool people! All in all wonderful experience

    Beautiful location, staff friendly and relaxed. Good outdoor common area. No lock on room door and lockers a bit too small for my bag. No air con and can hear talking from terrace in room so not recommended for light sleepers.

    The location and staff were very nice and I didn’t pay very much for the Hostel. I didn’t love that the doors going into the rooms weren’t locked and the front door is falling off.

    Not a terrible hostel, in a very picturesque location which is amazing. They have a bar right underneath which serves cheap ish food. The staff couldn’t speak English very well but still tried their best to help us. Had a lot of fun on the balcony upstairs. Only issue was weird roommates and the toilets smelt disgusting.
