Hostelworld says

If you're looking for privacy during your stay in Budapest, Pal's Hostel is a great place to start from. This hostel offers comfortable private rooms and spacious apartments with beautiful views across the road to Szent Istvan's Basilica. It's located very near the Chain Bridge and the intersection of all three metro lines so it's easy to get anywhere in the city. Hostelworld guests have said 'it's like having a piece of your own home in another city' and they'd 'definitely recommend this hostel for those who want to spend their night in a quiet apartment and in a very central area'.

Property Description

We’re not your average hostel, indeed, but rather a chain of apartments and dorms located in the very centre of Budapest around St. Stephen's Basilica. If you fancy some privacy and want to stay in a place that feels just like home, come to Pal's Hostel and enjoy your very own apartment in Budapest! As well as private apartments, we also offer private rooms with shared bathrooms, and even shared dorms!

Pal's Hostel started at small and humble beginnings - we earned our place on the map by winning Hoscar of 'Best Hostel in Hungary 2013', '1st Country winner in Hungary 2014' and a nomination for 'Worldwide small hostel 2014', and since then we have grown into a greatly respected and popular hostel, even being awarded '10th Best Large Hostel Worldwide 2018' :)

Pal's Hostel is located in the very centre of downtown. From here you can easily get to most of the sights on foot, such as Saint Stephen's Basilica, The Chain Bridge, Parliament, Andrassy Avenue (part of the World Heritage), the Opera House, the Great Synagogue, the National Museum, Vaci Street, and Vorosmarty Square. The Danube bank is only a five minute walk away too! Nearby there are also many restaurants, cafes, pubs, clubs, and party places all within walking distance, like Akvarium Club, Anker Club, Castro Bistro, Szimpla Pub and Katapult. We are also located very close to Deak Ferenc Square, which is the main junction for all underground metro trains in Budapest.

Other important sightseeing spots are near by too, such as Buda Castle (part of the World Heritage, along with the Fisherman's Bastion, Matthias Church and the National Gallery), as well as Heroes' Square, the City Park and the baths (Szechenyi, Gellert, Rudas). You can walk to these places from our hostel in 20-30 minutes.

Here at Pal's we are happy to be at your assistance; you can print your e-ticket, buy tickets for the Szechenyi baths, Gellert baths or even the caving tour. We also sell the Budapest Card. We have great local knowledge and advice on the best spots in town to share with you! We can also help you get to Ozora Festival, Sziget Festival or Balaton Sound!

We can even pick you up at the airport for €24 for 1-4 people; this means if there’s four of you it’s only €6 per person. Public transport is about €2.50 per person. Our contact information will be in your booking confirmation email.

Please note that our rooms called 'Basic Double Bed Private (Shared Bathroom)' are literally with double beds, not two single beds.
Please also note that we have no AC in our rooms and apartments :(

    One of my favorite places I’ve stayed. The staff is extremely nice and the apartment rooms are spacious and clean. I would not expect to meet many people here as it’s not that sort of hostel.

    Pal’s was amazing, our private room was so beautiful overlooking the cathedral bell tower. However, the one issue with a bell tower is that it has a bell.in it And this one chimed every 15 minutes. Fortunately we could sleep in the loft above the kitchen and it was very quiet and comfortable for two. The other four beds would require ear plugs if you are not a heavy sleeper. The dorms are on the other side of the court yard so I cannot add a re ire for them

    The hostel is located right in the center of the city, close to everything, especially the transportations (Deak Ferenc is a 4 min. walk and the airport shuttle arrives there) The room I got was gigantic and had the best view I could imagine, it was very clean and very nice, had an equipped kitchen. Because of Covid there were not a lot of people visiting, and the reception was open for a limited time, I think that in regular times the reception and the common area are more available and nice.

    Fabulous

    Central location with many restaurants around. Nice size apartment with security downstairs. Separate kitchen, which was handy. Friendly reception staff, who sorted out taxis to get the family to a wedding. Pal checked in with us by email during our stay. We used the transfer service from the airport, which was reassuring for my partner, who had three kids with her. I arrived by train and it was a 15 min walk from Nugati station.

    Excelent location, but it was more like a hotel without a good atmosphere. The reception was open from 2 until 7:30, so it could be something that maybe should be improved. However, it seems that is open those hours because the pandemic situation. The room was very big, and clean in general aspects.

Pal's Hostel says

I think that what people really appreciate about our place is that we have accommodation to suit everyone, from dorm beds to luxury apartments, in one of the most beautiful and practical locations in Budapest. With our chain of apartments surrounding St Stephen\'s square, we're only a short walk away from many of the main attractions. St Stephen's Basilica is at our doorstep and The Chain Bridge, Budapest Opera House and The Houses of Parliament are all within 800m. There are also two metro stations nearby- so getting around is easy! Personally, I would recommend that people visit my favourite original Turkish hammam, Rudas Bath :) Pal, Owner/Manager
