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 .

Cancellation policy: 48 h before arrival.
Payment upon arrival by cash.

    The most lovely and friendly kiwi guy on reception, greeted me and gave me personal recommendations, and showed me round the hostel which has such a homely feel. Really love the privacy the covers give you in the dorm, socket and shelf and light by each bed. Showers we’re hot and powerful and clean, never felt crowded. Has lockers to leave your stuff in after you go. Would definitely recommend to stay, thank you for a lovely time

    This hostel was so great, a perfect location for exploring Budapest-only a 10 min walk home after a night out. The staff were all lovely and reception was staffed 24/7. The kitchen was really new and well stocked and there were large social areas. As it is a ‘mini’ hostel there isn’t really much of an atmosphere but we actually really liked the private and peaceful vibe which was nice to return to after a busy day. No lock on the shower room door was also slightly frustrating.

    Very helpful and kind staff, who let us store our bags before we checked in/ and after check out so we could explore the city without our luggage, very nice atmosphere at the hostel, it’s bright, spacious and clean with excellent bathroom and kitchen fascilities as well as a common room etc. Would definitly reccomend the hostel, one of my favourites that I have stayed in and will be back!

    This is a great place to stay if you'd like quiet. Staff are kind and friendly, but don't help navigate city or help connect visitors. Cleanliness and location are phenomenal.

    Great hostel. I only stayed there for one night, but the location is great, it is very clean, there is not much ambiance but it is bot so bad either. The only thing is the showers area where there is not much privacy to change since the two showers are in the same room.

    Nice hostel but unfortunately located in a very busy place. We could not sleep all night due to the heavy traffic outside.

    I would not recommend staying here! Incredibly dirty hostel. Sheets were heavily stained with what seemed to be bodily fluids. When I pulled up the sheet to check the mattress, I was absolutely disgusted, stains absolutely everywhere. In addition, no mattress protector. I stayed in a private room which had 3 beds. All sheets & mattresses were covered in stains. I honesty expected better from this hostel, as the reviews seemed to be good. In summary, over priced and disgustingly dirty!
