Property Description

********Please, be kind enough to read this through before booking! A Million thanks!********

While it might be a wild goose chase we still believe in the golden age of backpacking, predating the age of instagram tourism. As frequent travelers, we feel that a good trip doesn’t just need a cool destination, but good company and a nice home base. In our mind a hostel should be more than a bed to crash in, a shower to wash off the dirt of the road or a wifi to do questionable things on and thus, we thrive to create something we would like to be on the other end of ourselves.. Mass production bed factories or sterile hostel chains aren’t our thing, we prefer something that feels more cozy, personal...and a little bit like home.

This is NOT a party hostel. This doesn’t mean that we don’t party, vodka-soda is our religion and we run pub crawls daily, we just happen to be very fond of sleeping and a lot less fond of people drinking out of their shoes and using our chandelier as a swing on our premises after midnight. Party with class. That's what we mean.

We are very social beings ourselves and would like to keep that atmosphere at the hostel too, so we organize various shenanigans throughout the week and aim to help our guests explore this city together.

The hostel is located in the center of the known universe. We could get into details but we have faith in your ability to use google maps.
Our place is still in its adolescent phase, hence its under constant improvement. While certain things might not be up to the Ritz-Carlton standards we have put a lot of thought and effort into making this a space we like to hang out in ourselves.

If you are looking to stay somewhere fun and genuine you have found your safe haven, but if you want to be treated like you are in a 5 star resort for a 10 euro price point you might be better off staying at Narnia.

Welcome to Budapest, your dirty new mistress.

These are the goodies we offer:

Our amazing company. We are pretty damn cool.
Endless knowledge about the city. We know things that your guidebooks don’t. (Although it all comes down to 42, so the rest is just fluff anyways.)
Free Wifi that actually works, even during your 10 minutes of morning solitude.
Free tea and coffee because vodka isn’t an acceptable breakfast beverage.
Free bed linen (even though it’s ridiculous that this is considered a feature).
Free towels...don’t leave earth without one.
Board games for lazy hungover nights.
A TV in case you went on a walking tour and now you feel the urge to wash away the taint of culture with binge watching a season of Jersey Shore.
Books, not just for wobbly tables.
Sarcasm 101 lessons.
Free Pub Crawls every night, so we can share your company with other individuals.


##################Important things to note#########################
Please note that in order to maintain a young, social, backpacker atmosphere we only accept guests between the ages of 18 and 35. We hold the right to cancel bookings with no refunds for reservations falling outside of our age range.
In case you don’t fit into this range but you are dead convinced you belong here drop us lane and we will work things out. View House Rules

    This location is perfect! Minutes walk from everything I wanted to see. One of the most social hostels I’ve stayed in while backpacking in Europe. Great to meet other solo travelers. All of the volunteers were so kind and helpful! Bathrooms and kitchen are clean and functional. I cannot recommend enough!

    The Lazy Muggle was recommended to us by someone we met travelling and we were so glad they did. The volunteers and workers there made the hostel one of best travelling experiences so far, with cosy living areas that lend themselves to the social hostel it is. Special thanks to Bridget, Kate, Pearson and Iris who made us laugh and made our stay worthwhile and are a credit to the hostel. They’re hosting was top notch and they have gave us so many experiences we will never forget! #2ndfloor xxxxx

    Wow! I’m on a Eurotrip visiting 10 countries in 40 days. And this hostel and Budapest has been the best experience so far. The facilities, the guests, the neighborhood and the staff went over all of my expectations. I’ve made friends and memories for life. I will definitely come back here next time I visit Budapest. I liked this place so much that I’m comfortable with bringing my family here for our next vacation. Highly recommended. Trust me, you will not regret staying here.

    The environment, nightly events, and especially the hostel volunteers foster such an amazing community feel at the Lazy Muggle (special thanks to Kate, Bridget, Pearson, and Iris!). It's an awesome place to meet other solo travelers and to have a great time in Budapest. It was definitely the best hostel I've stayed at while backpacking around Europe for over 2 months. Also, the location is perfect. Don't let the name scare you, they're not all Harry Potter nerds ;)

    Amazing hostel with a great family like atmosphere. It’s relatively small meaning you get to know other travellers well, great if you’re travelling solo. The events put on every night by the hostel too are both super fun and a great way to meet new people! Highly recommend!

    Overall a good hostel for an old fella like me who doesn't fall into the party animal category anymore. Location is very central, but no noise issues since the party scene in Budapest is a bit far away (10 min walk) All members of the staff have been very nice and helpful, the facilities are also ok and clean. I would like to praise Iris, the hostel volunteer, who led fridays Pub Crawl and showed great leadership skills and professionality despite her young age.
