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

    Couldn’t have asked for a better stay! Every night there is a different activity that is usually free to join and is the perfect way to meet other travelers! There are two separate common areas, but they feel more like your own living room, and are perfect for playing games, meeting people, chilling out, etc. You can go out and drink here every night if you wanted, but as it’s not one of the party hostels, I got a great sleep each night. Lockers in the room as well, and the building is secured.

    The lazy muggle hostel has a really chilled vibe. The common rooms are very chilled out and social. The beds were really comfy and there were lockers in the rooms. Location was great, close to the river and loads of food and drink places. The hostel organises group activities every eve so plenty to get involved in if your travelling solo. Not a typical party hostel but no issues if you do come back late or do want to go out and drink. I would 100% stay again. Felt safe and welcome.

    I really liked this place, very creative and unique - especially the hilarious posters and signs throughout the place. Showers were interesting - having to hand hold the shower head? Boat party wasn't that great either, but for £15 i guess it was alright. Great location wise - hard to find - the sign is very small! its on the window of the larger building. Very clean - regular check ups and cleans by the staff who were really friendly. Would definitely stay again

    Great atmosphere and lots of things going around the hostel. Rooms could do with a clean under the beds, but everything else was spotless. Would highly recommend

    First of all - great name. No real Harry Potter theme in the hostel though. The location is great - situated near the Basilica, metro station, and there’s restaurants and a bank nearby. Ruta was great. The WiFi was reliable. Cons - No room door locks - I couldn’t sleep due to noise my last night there. I asked a staff member who was talking with other guests to please keep it down. After that loud guests woke me up again. I was told “it’s ironic because we heard you snoring”. Not the same...

    Let’s make it easy: location is top in the center. People are friendly. Could be a little bit more clean. But all in all it’s fine

    This place has an amazing amazing location and the volunteers are friendly but otherwise that is all you are paying for as the hostel has a run-down/broken feel as a lot of the facilities are actually half broken.
