Maverick Hostel and Ensuites is located in a beautiful historic building in central Budapest, within walking distance of the city's most popular sights and best bars. They offer free coffee and Wi-Fi and often host free tastings of Hungarian wine and pálinka. Hostelworld visitors have said they'd definitely recommend this hostel to friends because the experience is 'like staying in your own apartment'. We like that there's an elevator and a kitchen on each floor.

    This is a fantastic hostel! After a few nights in an unsavory hostel before this, coming to Maverick was like a spa trip. The building is gorgeous and old, but well taken care of, and in a perfect location. We stayed in the 4 bed room and the bunks were sturdy and didn't make a sound. The security is impeccable with 4 or 5 layers of key-fob access doors to get to the room. We stayed on a quiet night but it was just what we needed. I had the best shower and sleep I've had in a month! Loved it.

    Even after taking a 10 bed dorm, I am very happy with everything. It was peaceful, hygienic and the best hospitality experience. Kudos to the reception team.

    Lovely hostel! Finding the door was a little tricky but it's a short walk from the direct bus from the airport - got to the location no problem! Bed was comfortable and the room was warm but the two fans in the room helped keep the air moving. And so nice not to stay in a bunk! Staff were friendly and helpful and the location was great.

    I really enjoyed my stay at the hostel. I booked a three bed room which was actually a four bed room. The were very accommodating and even allowed to change the booking to include one more friend who was in the city. The only thing to remark are the softener in the sheets. I did have an allergic reaction from the softeners in the middle of the night. I cannot blame the hostel, as the laundry is outsourced to another company. Be careful if you have sensitive skin. Everything else was perfect.

    I stayed in a five bed female dorm with bathroom. It was really clean (cleaned every day). Only thing is that it’s close to a very big street thus it was quite loud in the morning.

    The staff is amazing, friendly and very helpful. There was major construction going on, so there was ongoing noise. The layout of the rooms were ok. The bathrooms were just ok. The location was really safe, convenient and easy to access. The lounge area created a comfortable area, as well as th3e kitchen. These areas made it easy to socialize. The wine tasting night was a nice touch.

    Overall lovely visit and a luxury hostel experience. Staff were friendly and rooms were very clean and well maintained. Main problem was he fact the washing machine wasn't working, which we really needed to use at that stage of our trip.

    The staff are very helpful and friendly, otherwise not much else to say about this hostel. Lots of older people and families, no atmosphere or anything going on and just didn’t feel like a hostel at all.

Maverick Hostel & Ensuites says

One of the things that makes us special is that we have free frocks and palinka tastings on Wednesdays and Saturdays. These are the preferred national alchoholic drinks of Hungary. Fröccs is a mix of wine and soda and palinka is a spirit made from 100% fruit. These events help our guests to get to know each other and us too, because it's always hosted by one of us.
We're also very lucky with our location; basically, you can reach almost every main attraction on foot. Generally I recommend that people visit the castle area, which is not only beautiful in itself but you also get an incredible view of the city from there. I also love the caving tours, which most of our guests don't know about. Budapest has one of the biggest caving systems in the world, and during the tour you get protective clothing plus a helmet and you have to climb through tiny holes in a surreal environment.
Most of our customers are between 20 and 40 years old, but because of our fairly good double rooms with get some older guests, too. Sandor, Manager
