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.

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

    The room is situated on a very busy street so it's not quiet! All the same I had a very good sleep and everything else about the place was great!

    We stayed for 4 days. The stuff was really nice and welcoming. The room was clean, we got clean towels and we asked if we need anything else. When there was raining they gave us umbrella. Any questions has been answered. The place was a bit empty from guests probably because of the season. Really recommended. הגענו לארבעה ימים לאחר שהזמנו מראש חדר זוגי פרטי. הצוות היה נחמד ממש טענה על כל שאלה. הביא לנו מטריה כשירד גשם. התקשר להזמין לנו מקום במסעדה כשלא עבד לנו הויפיי. ממש נקי. מומלץ!

    Was really quiet, which I didn’t mind actually. The location was really good - close to train, metro and main tram line. Only problem with the location, the sirens at night. But I enjoyed it a lot. The staff was so good, I ended up staying for a week.

    Staff FANTASTIC. Location brilliant. Single private room clean, functional. Bathrooms clean/functional. Downside: I was there with school tour group of young children. Teachers were letting them run wild/neglected to supervise properly. I stayed away from the communal areas. This however more a reflection on teachers then staff. Stricter rules for children staying in hostel need to be implemented for comfort of other guests. Would stay again (minus inconsiderate teachers)

    Fairly good hostel. Would make it better if they had activites to do or like a family dinner. Other than that it was good and I would stay here again.

    Pals mini hostel is located in a perfect location. Walking distance to Budapest eye and trains, trams. Walking distance to all attraction. However due to the perfect location the dorms are extremely noisy from the traffic outside so bring a pair of good ear plugs as you will need this to sleep.

    I had a great stay here. Staff were very accommodating and friendly. The bed was comfortable and had a privacy curtain, but the room could get a bit hot. Other than that I have no complaints and would definitely stay again!

    The location is extremely convenient. it’s in a very popular square and is within walking distance of most of the popular attractions. you have to go through two locked doors with key codes which is a plus. walls are paper thin and the hostel itself is small. can hear every noise in and outside of the building. wifi also isn’t great. showers are nice, free towels, pretty clean.
