The adults-only Hive Party Hostel Budapest really does have a buzz about it. We've got one of the city's famous ruin bars on-site, right by the big central courtyard where we hold live music shows. In warmer seasons, you can head up for a beer on our rooftop bar and hangout area. As an added bonus, our staff will help you sign up for all sorts of activities, from pub crawls and caving under the city to daytime spa sessions and party boat cruises. Whatever you're into!


We're a 25-minute walk from Budapest Keleti train station and nine minutes on foot from Deák Ferenc tér square. That's also the transfer point to and from Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport, which is about 40 minutes away on the 100E bus. We also run transfers, so get in touch in advance if you want to be picked up. Once you're here, the striking Grand Synagogue (one of the city's top sights) is a 5-minute walk from the hostel.

Rooms and Dorms

All rooms at The Hive, from the private spaces to the mixed and female-only dorms, are en-suite and have air con so you can stay cool 24/7. Bunks have free linen and reading lights, and they're painted in black and yellow stripes as a nod to our bee-inspired theme. For security – not to mention convenience – our lockers open with the same key-card system you'll use to get into your room.

Extras and activities

Our hostel's super modern inside, with free Wi-Fi and a fully equipped kitchen for having a go at Hungarian goulash. If you're not one for cooking, there's a restaurant too. We've got cable TV in our indoor common area, plus mail service at reception so you can actually send all those postcards you've been hoarding. There's also an elevator, meaning you can drop your bags off and get partying pronto.

    Locations is perfect. Rooms and beds are very clean. Bathrooms and showers are clean and spacious and in the same room. Keycard is brilliant and makes life so much easier. Special thanks to Abbey, who was so helpful and accommodating and probably the only person that smiled in Budapest. Cheers

    Had a wonderful time at the hive. Met an awesome group of people, and partied for 5 nights!! I would not stay at any other party hostel as this one was incredibly clean, nice beds, and great lockers for storing your things! The only comment that I would have is that it is if there is a night you would like to stay in and go to bed early, there will still be music coming from the party downstairs (which is to be expected since it is a party hostel!).

    Beds were nice and clean but the kitchen was a mess. Like a bunch of children who rely on mom and dad to clean up after them but overall it was a nice stay.

    Very Good

    Solid place for a bed and security in the middle of a very active area. I found the place alittle dirty (bathrooms etc) but it was around NYE so it’s to be somewhat expected. If you are looking for a party type trip it’s pretty good.

    This is a good hostel at an okay location. The one thing that I couldn't get over is that they don't clean. They really don't.

    I got there for New years, expecting it to be expensive as that time of year. However, when arriving, the room had not been cleaned from the previous nights. My bed was made for me however the room still dirty. Rubbish on the floor dirty socks from the previous guests. The bathroom was dirty and was only cleaned once for my entire stay and that was because another guest complained it smelt. The upstairs bar was never opened, they just offered us pub crawls and boat party's. Not a party Hostel

    Only for those who like party. The bar downstairs is noisy at 2330. The bed is dirty and didn’t make up. The toilet is smelly. Is not a comfortable stay. Unless you would like to throw a party and just sleep when you are drunk. Not recommended.
