  • The staff was very helpful and ready to explain datails at any minute you need. The location couldn't be any better, next to the cathedral, near good restaurants and 2 blocks away from the bridge. If you are going to Budapest it's worth checking the rates and avaiability for Pal's Hostel - which, by the way, isn't exactly a hostel: it's actaully some apartments that are fully furnished (with kitchen, bedroom and bathroom) that are rented for the tourists!

  • Friendly, knowledgeable, eager and good English speaking staffs are always responsive even after hours via phone; Very secure that there is always a security sitting behind counter desk and entrance door is always locked; Spacious room with amenities like kitchen and utensils etc... Excellent location when one's window view is St. Stephen Cathedral; Will definitely recommend to all and surely will return next time.

  • Beats most hotels. The 4 person private ensuite deluxe was a highlight in our whole InterRail trip. Very good everything! The staff was really friendly and helpful. Will come again if I ever visit Budapest again.

  • I will highly recommend staying here. Just one minor comment- the toilet could have been a bit bigger and having an exhaust would have helped.

  • I can't say enough good things about this hostel. We stayed in the private double room in the shared 3 bedroom apartment. It was amazing, clean, HUGE, and the view of St Peter's is unrivalled. I fully intend visiting Budapest again and I will definitely be using Pal's Hostel again.

  • I've been backpacking Europe for 4 weeks and this is the best hostel we've stayed at. You have the best view in town of the St. Stephens Basilica, 5 min walk from metro, 20 min walk to Buda Castle, and you're 2 mins away from great bars and restaurents. The room had plenty storage, beds were alright, had air conditioning and wifi was stable. Security was great, had to get through three different rooms with 3 keys until you got to yours. Overall I would recommend this hostel to anyone:)
