Head to the historic Jewish Quarter of Budapest for Maverick City Lodge. Down the eclectic old streets is our contemporary hostel, with common rooms and social kitchens to meet with travellers from all over. Join our multilingual local guides for a pub crawl to get your bearings. Strapped for cash and wanting to socialise? Come and chat at reception for all the latest on our free events. We're talking walking tours, fröccs tasting (a local bubbly wine concoction) and spaghetti nights. You can hire a bike, or ask us about booking activities like caving and cruising on the Danube.

Step outside the front door of our hostel and you can be at the baths with a beer in 10 minutes!

Rooms range from small to large mixed or female-only dorms, private doubles, some with en-suite. Bunks are all enclosed for extra privacy, with curtains and reading lights. Each bed has a storage locker for your things, and linen and towels are included. Hungarian summers can get hot, so all rooms have air con. There's daily housekeeping, too.

    I had a really great time in Budapest and part of the experience was staying at Maverick City Lodge. Right in the heart of all the action with Ruin bars just a very short walk away. Really nice kitchen and downstairs a nice place to relax in the lobby. The cleaning crew did an excellent job and Niki at reception was great. She did pancake night which was a lot of fun. There is something fun going on every evening. Have fun and enjoy Budapest.

    Really enjoyed our stay at Maverick City Lodge. Location was perfect, within walking distance of all major attractions Budapest has to offer. Room was clean and very comfortable, stayed in a 8 bed female dorm. Would highly recommend and will be staying here the next time I visit Budapest.

    We stayed for three nights in a private room. Our room was spacious and clean and we appreciated the air conditioning. There were lots of events at night you could attend, unfortunately we did not get to, but they looked fun. We were very impressed with this hostel and would highly recommend.

    For the price you will not find a better room. The location was second to none and the staff very helpful. Overall an exceptionally good hostel. The only thing to say is that their partner restaurant (where we ate breakfast) had very slow and often unhelpful staff, however this is a very minor point. The hostel was exceptional value for money.

    The only reason I lowered their score is for the laundry. They offer laundry services. We turned in 2 small compression cubes worth of clothes in the morning and no one had touched them by 5pm. When we checked again in the morning because we had been assured the laundry would get done before we left that next morning, it was still warmed from the dryer. Kinda poor service in that regard. But besides that, excellent hostel.

    Very modern hostel, nice clean rooms and big bathrooms. Shower wasn’t hot, staff were rude and there was zero atmosphere. But if you’re looking for a nice room for reasonably cheap this is the place.

    Air conditioning was broken in room, staff apologized but I specifically booked this hostel for the A/C. Good location, staff was friendly and very helpful, fun atmosphere, but lack of functioning A/C in my room made my nights very uncomfortable, requiring me to keep windows open, and since hostel is next to popular ruin bars it was very loud and sweaty all night.
