  • Great place. Helpful staff. Chill location. Only issue I had was how they handled our clothes being damaged in a washing machine fire. They were honest, but took them 3 days to get what was left of our clothes back. They were soaked, but nicely folded. Would have been ok if they just told us where a laundromat was. But aside from that incident, really awesome hostel.

  • The best rasta hostel we've ever been to. Great atmosphere makes you feel like at home. Excellent location, just 15min to main attractions of the city. While entering the hostel stuff recommend you best restaurants with local cuisine and other practical advises. Right at the courtyard, a pub where you can eat tasty dishes and drink cheap, but very good beer. Strongly recommend this place. If we ever come back to Budapest, will stay at the Rastel Hostel for sure!!!

  • It was very lovely. The people working there seemed to be high half the time. It's not exactly five-star luxury, for example my "pillow" essentially consisted of a pillowcase and nothing more, but I just stuffed it with a cardigan and I slept fine. I never got a chance to go out to the bar/patio-area, but it sure looked like a lot of fun and the people looked really cool too. I don't really have any complaints; it's cheap and I was able to have a nice time in a very beautiful city :).
