Property Description

***Please read all this information before booking***


Retox Party Hostel - the name says it all. This is not a place people come to cleanse, rejuvenate or detox. It’s a place people come to pause existence, live in a haze of alcohol and freedom, get wild and RETOX. Welcome to a world that will steal your heart and liver. We’re a family who like to drink at the bar during the day and head out to party at night. If you want to get a good night’s sleep and achieve a lot during the day, this is NOT the hostel for you, but if you want to see what Budapest’s nightlife has to offer, not be judged and maybe squeeze some sightseeing in between, you have found the right place.

This is a PARTY HOSTEL by name and by nature. There will be loud noises from the bar, other guests, and staff for much of the day and night, so while we can’t promise you the best night’s sleep, what we can promise you is a home of complete inclusivity to all the alcoholics and wanderers out there. We believe that staying at Retox is an experience itself so we’re not about having the best facilities or being fancy, we’re about making new friends, being free and getting bloody weird!

The hostel is an old courtyard building littered with graffiti from local and international street artists. The courtyard is a backpacker’s bar (which is run by us) and a great place for you to recover from your hangover with a few breakfast beers and meet people from all over the world. Everyone and anyone willing to get accepted will be welcomed with open arms, but be warned that during your stay you might wake up to the sound of a fellow party member spewing in the bathroom or see/hear people shagging in your room, that is if you're not the one getting lucky!

A huge part of what we do is get everyone together and personally take them out to the nightlife Budapest is famous for such as the bath parties, boat parties and pub crawls. We just ask that you respect other guests, our neighbours and the city noise curfew. Other than that we want you to have a wild time and meet amazing people who are like minded about how to party!

We are part of the Budapest Party Hostels chain, a group run by backpackers who love to party. We know how hangovers feel so we don’t have check out times or kick you out during the day for cleaning. We don’t like charging for extras so there is free wifi, free computer use, free linen, free tea and coffee, free locker use, free printing, as well as a bunch of other things you can hire from the hostel with just a deposit.

The Retox crew are here to show you a wicked time whether it be to help you with whatever you need to know about the city, tours you may want to do, where to get some good local food, or the closest place to get booze 24hrs a day so you can come back and drink with us. We tend to build a close community of newly made friends who want to do everything together. You can check in as either a solo traveller or as part of a group, it doesn’t matter, you will walk away with newly made buddies and memories for a lifetime (if you manage to remember them!)

Please note:
- Retox is part of the Budapest Party Hostels brand and is one of the wildest of the bunch. Like the name says, this is A PARTY HOSTEL, we go out every night, some people drink in the daytime, there is a bar, sometimes sex, and a lot of fun. If you don’t feel like this is the kind of environment for you, please try other accomodation like our sister hostel, Vitae Hostel for a more chilled out stay.

- We are a strictly drug free hostel and have a zero tolerance policy on the issue. If you are found on drugs, with drugs or asking for them, inside or outside of the hostel, you will be evicted immediately with no refund.

- Regrettably, due to the fact that this is a licensed premises we can not take bookings for anyone under the age of 18. Also, due to previous experience, we don’t usually take bookings for people over 36, but if you are an older traveler and would feel comfortable staying here then by all means email us so we can discuss it.

- Retox welcomes group bookings (including University/Erasmus trips, stag and hen dos, sports tours). If you are part of a group booking, please get in touch with us directly and we can hook you up with our group bookings manager who can help you book all sorts of activities in advance!

Get ready to experience the wild side of Budapest at the Retox Party Hostel. The clue is in the name: we like to party, and we can’t wait for you to come and get crazy with us in our buzzing courtyard bar, on one of our legendary nights out, or at our boat parties... You get the picture! Oh, and we don’t have check-out times – hooray for lie-ins! When you're recovering from last night, have a gentle knock around on our pool table, play some foosball and if that's too strenuous, we've got a Playstation.


We’re in the Terézváros neighbourhood, home to the ultra-cool Oktogon intersection (4 minutes’ walk) with its budget-friendly food vendors and bars. If you’re feeling cultural, head over to ‘Budapest’s Broadway’ on Nagymező Street (3 minutes’ walk) for grand theatres and opera houses. Fancy exploring further? Jump on the metro at the Oktogon stop, a 5-minute stroll from us, to check out the rest of the city. It’s a piece of cake to get to Ferenc Liszt Airport, too – it’ll take under an hour on the metro, or 35 minutes in a taxi.

Rooms and Dorms

Our rooms are comfy places to crash when you’re not throwing back daily happy hour drinks at our bar. Pick from private double rooms with en-suites, or go for a mixed dorm to get to know your fellow travellers a little better. There are secure lockers for your stuff, and we’ll throw your linen in for free.

Extras and activities

You’ll find us in a historic courtyard building splattered with Instagrammable graffiti and surrounded by other hostels and bars so it's not far to go if you fancy a change of drinking scene. We’re easy on your budget too, with free stuff like city maps, Wi-Fi, computer use and printing all to make your stay more affordable. And the tea and coffee is on us, all day long, because who doesn't love their caffeine fix? This is the place to meet new people, let loose and make some memories.

    So I came from Prague. And I heard that Prague was a good party place. It’s not if you compare it to Budapest! I’m in love with this place. It’s like Christiania in Denmark, where I’m from. Like a free community where everyone is so friendly, and everyone just love each other. This is the perfect place, if you are travelling alone. You have too experience this place.

    Checked in and was on a boat party 10 min later. Chippy checked me in gave me a detailed explanation and a walk thru. The staff were amazing and the atmosphere their create makes meeting people effortless. It seemed like the were constantly cleaning the place and even though it’s a party hostel, the mornings are pretty peaceful and nice. All in all, a great time and they definitely make Budapest a worthy repeat destination. Can’t say enough...

    my best friend and I came to retox and didn’t really know what to expect, but we ended up having the absolute best time ever. the staff are such fun, hilarious, and helpful people. we made so many friends because everyone is there for the same reason - to have fun. the only complaint I have is that we only planned to stay in budapest for 3 days. we’ll definitely be coming back and for longer next time.

    First experience in a party hostel and I have to say that it’s been probably the most fun I’ve had since I’ve been in Europe. From the staff to the people there, I met some of the most amazing people in the time of 4 days. The staff really cares and looks out for their patrons and everyone looks out for each other no matter who it is. Everyone’s inclusive to even the people traveling alone. I most definitely plan on going there again. Thanks again you guys for giving me such a memorable time.

Retox Party Hostel says

I think that what marks us out from the rest is that we take our guests out every night to different events and parities in the city. We also have a bar downstairs which is pumping with special events for packpackers every night. Another thing is that our hostel's been decorated by some of the best local street artists. It's a place where backpackers can crash out upstairs or keep drinking all night in the bar.
Guests tell us all the time that they love our party atmosphere as well as our community. This is a really sociable hostel where guests and staff alike spend the days and nights together, getting to know each other and getting drunk together. It's an insane place where people can be seen drinking beers or breezers with their breakfast down at the bar.
Our hostel is designed for young backpackers and travellers - thus there is an age restriction of 18 - 36 years of age. This hostel is for people who want to party not those who want to get a good night's sleep. Ellen, Manager
