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. 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 :)

    Our favourite hostel on our travels. The room/outside communal area were really chilled. The room felt very safe and we could sleep with door open during the hot weather. A bit further out but worth the journey as the island itself has cool bars (the one beside the hostel was great as it had discounts for guests) and was a nice area to walk around itself. Thank you !

    My experience was very nice! The stay reminded me of home because of it's openness and friendliness. The location is amazing, the staff was very friendly. The bar on site is pretty conveniently priced and serves nice breakfasts. The hammock in the evening really saved the experience after the excessive heat in the city. The terrace overall makes this place very romantic and relaxing. Highly recommend for a chill time! Best wishes to the staff, looking forward to my next stay there!

    Nice hostel- basic but everything you need and expect. Balcony space and kitchen were really nice. Location is lovely on the island- but quite a walk (20/30mins) from the Jewish quarter where most food and bars are and monuments Buda Castle etc. Unfortunately our stay was greatly dampened by a grumpy and hostile member of staff, we were scolded like naughty kids over small and harmless things. Aside from this there also wasn’t much of a friendly communal atmosphere.

    You get what you pay for, the price was cheap and the accomodation wasn't terrible. The value for money is good. The location is good, Budapest is a large city and can be overwhelming, it's nice to go back to Margaret Island and chill away from the city life and it's close to Platinitus Bath Spa, which for me was the best Spa. However, the people running the hostel were bizarre, they were always drunk, sleeping on the sofas outside and they stole my vodka on the last night and they stank of BO.

    I didn‘t feel very welcomed from the staff. They seemed annoyed of me eventhough I was a normal guest. Questions were only biefly answered with yes or no. No tips or support. The terrace is nice but not as clean as in the pictures.

    Location amazing!!. I would not recommend his hostel to anyone. During out stay in a 8 mix dorm, on our first night people just started coming in our room using the facilities. When we mentioned this to reception, they said they had over booked for the night and the poeple who worked there had to sleep outside and then just use our facilities. This become a common occurance. one morrning there must have been about 12 people use our facilities and by the time we came to shower, it was VILE!!!

    TERRIBLE SERVICE: Horrible check in & out experience by David (staff). He was not accommodating at all. Others like Bryan were excellent, had a great NYE with em. WRONG INFO: they don’t bother to update anything on their online platforms - checkout time & facilities information is FALSE - there’s NO ATM on site in Winter OVERCHARGED: Paid €13 extra due to hostel’s extra high exchange rate when paying by card TAXI to airport booked through David - DIDN’T SHOW UP after waiting for 1 HOUR in 1°C

    Definitely disappointed. First, was check-in with a very curt, almost surly, front desk staff member. Their credit card machine wasn't working so we had to find cash. Unfortunately, they didn't have change for the cash, so we ended up paying more than the room rate. Next, the room itself. No other way to say it-it smelled like an open sewer. Truly horrendous. Opening the window was an option, unfortunately that let in hundreds of bugs (which were even in our room with the window shut).

    Upon arriving a staff member tried to charge me more than what I had agreed to and told me I could complain later. No info about facilities of hostel or the city provided. The rooms didn't have locks and staff walked in without knocking. Staff of the hostel or the pub downstairs were using the facilities of the room but weren't allocated a bed because the hostel was booked out, so completely random people were in the room using the showers at all hours. Staff very rude and made me uncomfortable.
