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.

    Best location for the best price! We booked a private room with a double bed and bathroom and loved our stay. The air condition was a must because there was a real heat stroke at Budapest during our stay. Because of corona times the hostel couldn’t really function as a party hostel but Budapest has all the pubs, restaurant and people you need anyway so we had a great fun!

    I loved my stay there, the staff were nice and smiley, the rooms were clean and nice ( I just wish there were curtains on each bed but it was not a big deal), it was very close to public transportation. I recommend it to everyone. I have been to a lot of hostels in Budapest and this one is my favorite so far.

    My stay was nice wish the corona virus and the change of new ownership didn’t happen because the big bar club was still close, but other than that it was pretty good

    Excelent hostel. The bedroom was big and also the kitchen. They have a bar on the top that is ok, they make parties but you don’t hear anything from your room.

    The hostel is very modern and clean, looks like brand new. Unfortunately it seemed to be quite empty, not really a party happening there. But this is probably everywhere the same because of the covid travel restrictions. You can hang out at the rooftop but the bar was closed when I was there. The staff was friendly and helpful, the location is perfect.

    A new and very clean hostel with good value for money. Staff were helpful and pleasant. The advertised upstairs bar was closed. However, the area was central and surrounded by hipster bars, cafes, bistros, clubs and galleries. WiFi didn't work the whole stay.

    It was a nice place, but the bar wasn’t ready and people weren’t partying at the hostel, it might be because of Covid tho..

    I’ve stayed at over 30 hostels this year. This is by far the worst. Not only are the staff unhelpful and rude (especially when it comes to the completely broken internet) but the atmosphere is terrible… People here have no respect in the dorms, often yelling and watching videos / music on their phones into all hours of the night. Some of this is to be expected at a party hostel, but even then it is hardly a party hostel with only one small bar that closes at midnight. Don’t stay here.
