Property Description

Let me introduce my new mini hostel at Octogon Square, a super-central location on Andrássy Avenue.
I decided to start this new hostel using my experience from the Pal' Hostel at Saint Stephen's Basilica, which I opened more than ten years ago and where I learned to take care of all the small details that will make your stay comfortable. The hostel is located directly at Octogon Square, one of the liveliest spots of the city - all major sights of Budapest are within walking distance. The nightlife district is just a few minutes by foot and there is a gorgeous authentic market just around the corner.

The location, Oktogon, is simply unbeatable. It's on the corner of Andrassy Avenue (part of the UNESCO World Heritage) and the so called 'Grand Boulevard'. You can get everything within 5 min walk: tons of cafés and restaurants, clubs and pubs, the 'Party Quater', the House of Terror museum, the Opera. In 20 min walk: the Danube, the Parliament, Heroes Square, the City Park, the biggest bath (Szechenyi). In 40 min walk you can be up in the Buda Castle looking down back to the spectaculous Pest side of the river.

This is a small hostel with 7 rooms. It has 3 dorms with 6-8 beds and private rooms of different size (single, double and family). The metal bunk beds in the dorms have privacy curtains you can adjust with magic magnets and each bed has its own power outlet and reading light. Needless to say, the WiFi is free. Sheets and towels are provided as well. I think we have everything in the kitchen that you need to cook your own meal. If you miss something, please let us know. We’ll get it for the next day.

Pal's Mini Hostel Policies & Conditions:

Check in from 14:00 to 23:00 .
Check out before 11:00 .

    Everybody was very helpful and made us feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. If we ever find ourselves in Budapest again, we’d go back. We had a lovely time! The location couldn’t have been much better. The rooms were clean and tidy. Can’t complain!

    Great hostel, staff are so nice and friendly, clean and good kitchen. Only problem is the wifi is not so good, the bed is very noisy when you move and can hear everything outside the room, which is expected when staying in a hostel. I would recommend this quiet hostel. Good location, next to the oktagon metro and plenty of restaurants around and nice staff :)

    Really cozy hostel in the absolute center of Budapest - all main roads lead directly to the hostel. Very nice accomodation and the staff is super friendly. The room I stayed at was located right out to the main traffic street/square so there was always a bit of sound in the background from that, but personally I loved it because it gives you a very close “feel” of the city and I had no problem sleeping at all, so it’s just something to be aware of. Would definitely visit again!

    The staff was really nice and the location is great! Free coffee and towels, which I really appreciate. I like the privacy of the curtains on the bed, but would recommend stronger magnets because they were constantly coming off haha thank you for a nice stay!

    The only cons about this hostel is that it is quite far from the city center, but overall it is reachable with walking. The staff were super helpful. There is kitchen, common room was quite chill. I would recommend this to travelers.

    Location is great, staff is very nice, rooms are comfortable and clean. It was quiet. Just the bathroom could be a little more clean and and private, the space is organizer in a way it's almost open to the hall. But great price/value/location for a 2 night stay. We enjoyed to stay there!

    There a major problem with street noises inside the bedrooms. If you're sensitive to this, don't go in this hostel ; even with hearplugs you ll not spend a good night. The staff told me they ll work on it, so read also recent reviews.

    The hostel is extremely noisy, it is like sleeping in a tent next to a busy road. The walls are so thin, that’s why you can hear litterly everything that other people are doing. Like the cluttering of a spoon against a plate. Beds are okay, sheets feel dirty and itchy. Staff is super friendly, facilities and location are really good. As I slept every night really bad, I would not recommend this hostel.
