Small, homey and charming hostel in the very center of historic downtown, within walking distance of most of the sights and right at the entertainment quarter.

In the heart of Budapest downtown we've created a calm, homey and intimate atmosphere where after a tiring day of traveling or sightseeing you can relax and really feel at home. We've turned a beautifully renovated classic Budapest apartment into a small hostel so that you can enjoy quality accommodation at bargain price, and get a glimpse of Budapest as only locals know it.

Please NOTE that the hostel is small with a few private rooms and therefore it's NOT a place where you can meet a lot of people and party. However, if you prefer privacy, personal attention, cleanliness and relaxed atmosphere with a homely touch this place will be perfect for you!

To top it all, the hostel is located within walking distance of most of the sights and is surrounded by amazing old buildings, so staying here you can not only see Budapest's history; you can live in it for a while.

We are less than five minutes walk away from the famous Vaci street, a fashionable all pedestrian shopping area, and the nightlife and entertainment quarter, packed with trendy pubs, clubs, cafes, fancy restaurants as well as cheap eateries. Only three minutes walk away from the blue, yellow and red metro line stops, night buses, and trams to the Buda side, we provide an ideal base for exploring Budapest’s rich past as well as its vibrant multicultural present.

Our friendly staff will be happy to assist you with anything you need. We recommend the best places to go out and we can help you to plan the most efficient ways to do your sightseeing.

Please note: As we don't have a 24 hour reception, please NOTIFY us about your arrival time.

You'll have your own keys so you can come and go as you please all day round.

Check-in: 1pm-12 midnight
Check out from rooms: until 11am

Of course you can leave your luggage in the hostel until you are ready to leave.
Early check-in is possible if your room is free earlier than 1pm - contact us by email.
For late check-out, please get advice from the receptionist.
Prices are per person per night.
