Quiet, clean and well located hostel, nice bedrooms and kitchen. Confy bed. Good shower and bathrooms (one of the showers let some water out and it was closed for 24h and promptly fixed), nice kitchen as well with coffee and snacks if you need. I recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet place to stay.
This hostel was placed in a great location on the Pest side. Free towels were provided. The staff have helpful tips. We had our own shelf on the fridge. It was a very clean and relaxing stay! It was close to the night life, the opera, parliament and many more.
Located in the heart of the "Pest" side of Budapest, Friends Hostel is the optimal walking distance from some of Budapest's main attractions and nightlife, including the famous ruin bar "Szimpla." The hostel was incredibly clean and organized, and provided a relaxing, quiet environment that was perfect after a long day of walking. The rooms were spacious and free towels were provided. The staff was also generous with their amenities and let us leave our luggage after check out past the 5 PM time. They also gave us a discount on laundry. If you're looking for a centrally located and peaceful hostel, this is it!
We had a private room which was away from the rest of the hostel so there was little to no social interaction with anyone else! Felt in the outside. Room was really good though.
This was the best hostel I've ever stayed in! We paid an extremely low price for a humongous room with sofas and a balcony and had a well-equipped kitchen and two beautiful bathrooms at our disposal. I also liked the fact that we could buy snacks and drinks including Nespresso coffee from the kitchen. The location was also great, situated on the corner of a bustling street full of great places to eat, and across the road from a tram stop. In summary it felt more like a posh hotel than a hostel.
Friends is the best accommodation in Budapest in case you are looking for a cheap place where you can relax after a tiring sightseeing. Thanks to this hostel I could spend an extraordinary time in Budapest, we got everything we needed, absolutely clean and quiet hostel with a staff that provided us all the information about this magnificent city.
I hope we can return to you very soon. Thank you our Friends!
Spent 5 nights at Friends Hostel whilst visiting Budapest, and it didn't disappoint. Our room was really lovely, and the kitchen/bathrooms were also very clean. I would recommend it to anyone who is only staying in the capital because it is so central and we walked everywhere! It isn't a party hostel so if you're looking for something to do in the evening at the hostel, this isn't the place. However we stayed out late and just returned for bed instead so very ideal. The people there are very helpful, booking our thermal spa and massage package for us over the phone- very easy.
This hostel was gorgeous, newly renovated and warm. Each bed had its own under bed storage and the all female dorm room we were in had 2 couches and a table in the middle for lounging. The hostel was fairly empty when we stayed there, but with 2 bathrooms I can imagine how it could get frustrating. Still highly recommend this hostel.
Clean, cosy and nice place near to the all worth seeing places in Budapest city centre. In apartment you can find small but well equipped kitchen or funny toilets. Rooms are spacy and comfy. Although the staff is friendly they visit their flat looking hostel rather than work there, and if they are in, they behave a little bit too noisy like unconscious of paper-mache made, thin walls. In conclusion next time in beautiful Budapest I would rather seek a place more hostel resembling than a flat.
Liked: Upon arrival we changed our mind and reqeusted for an apartment. Nice apartment we were given had bathroom with shower and bath. A huge living space with dining table and fully equipped kitchen we were surprised as it was only the two of us and you could sleep 6 in this apartment! Great value for money! The location was perfect everything on your doorstep! The girls in reception were lovely and so helpful and everyone we met in Budapest were friendly! Wonderful city so much to see and do! Would 100% stay here again!!!
