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

    Ah... The Lazy Muggle... Easily the BEST hostel I have ever stayed at. Don’t get me wrong: the facilities aren’t exactly A+, and it’s lacking in a few aspects. But the atmosphere COMPLETELY makes up for it, and then some! THIS is what a backpackers hostel is supposed to be. Friendly. Social. Awesome. None of that “random family (with children) checking in that no one will talk to while everyone goes to bed silently” bs. THIS is a backpackers hostel. A+++!

    A lot of young guests and solo traveller friendly but worst hostel I've ever seen. The furniture is probably 50 years old, there were hair on the bathroom floor all the time and the duvet smelled bad. The doors to the living room are so thin I could hear a lot of people talking there. Since there are nice clean hostels for 10€/night this place is just a ripoff.
