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 .

    Very nice, small and cozy hostel with friendly staff. The only thing is that an unexpected group of guests came to the room in the night and staff came to change the linen with the ceiling light full on. Otherwise a great experience.

    Amazing location! Walkable to all the night life and 3 stops via metro (the stop is literally across the street from the hostel) you are in the main area for tourism type things. Bathrooms and showers kept clean, large common area, mini balcony, the only complaint is that the room was VERY dusty. (The sign at the front desk says if it’s to hot ask for air conditioning and I didn’t see the sign till my way out so if you go during the hot months make sure you ask!) Would stay 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.

    Central location. Right next to bus/tram/metro stops. Be aware that it’s very loud at night since windows are open right next to traffic, but just use ear plugs and you’re good. Restrooms and kitchen areas were always kept clean. Staff is 24 hours which is nice and they are always very friendly and helpful. Curtains provide privacy and the bed lamps/shelves are great.

    Location is close to the metro and within walking distance to most places. The staff was friendly but weren't the most knowledgeable on local food areas. Comfy, clean beds but no AC, it cools off with the windows open but then then it is very noisy. Be aware that if you show up late it may take you awhile to get inside. They have to buzz you in so at least 3 times I was standing outside the door for 5-10 mins waiting to be let back in..
