A brand new, fully renovated hostel in the heart of Budapest, where you are sure to feel at home from the moment you check in, and (we hope) will already be making plans to come back by the time you leave!

The most common remark we get from our guests is the warm, family atmosphere we have here at Hi 5 Hostel, which is no surprise all of us working at Hi 5 came together as friends long before we started working together because we are all like-minded souls: we love to be around people, to hang out and discuss some of life's mysterious and fun little quirks over a cold beer, and yes, to kick it up in one of Budapest's famous ruin bars and make memories we will probably never want to tell our grandchildren about!
We love Budapest not just for its history and high culture, but mainly for its dynamic underground culture and booming nightlife. Nothing makes us happier than when we hear our guests screaming over the phone to their friends in a crowded bar that they've just found a slice of heaven on earth, so we will make it our mission to show you all the best spots in the city!

If youre the kind of person who likes to keep to yourself and do your own thing, there are plenty of hostels in the city that will allow you to do that. But if youre looking for a vibrant, sociable place where in addition to getting all the sightseeing info and whats going on locally, youll also have the chance to meet like-minded locals and traveler's who love to mingle and go out together, then Hi 5 Hostel is the place for you!

Most of our guests usually seize the daytime to go sightseeing, or visit one of Budapests famous bath houses and soak up the sun, but if youre feeling a bit lazy, or just plain hungover, then there are plenty of ways to amuse yourself within our walls. Challenge one of our staff to a game of pool or foosball (be warned: they get plenty of practice!), play a tune on the guitar or just screen one of your favourite TV shows or movies on our smart TV theres never a dull moment here at Hi 5 Hostel!
We also do regular communal dinners, barbeques and cook-offs, so theres no reason to spend your hard-earned beer money on fancy restaurants. After youve all filled your bellies with good food and local beer, anyone looking to carry on drinking and partying into the night is encouraged to join our nightly party programmes, including boat parties, pub crawls and more!

We have most of the usual facilities, plus a few extras
- Free tea & coffee all day long
- Free pool table
- Free foosball table
- Free bed linen (it still amazes us that there are some hostels who charge for that)
- Free use of hostel computers
- Free WiFi
- Big-screen smart TV with DVD player, surround-sound system, and Xbox 360+various games
- Fully-equipped kitchen with two cooking areas
- No curfew!! (what adult wants to be given a bed time? seriously)
- 24hr reception

Our receptionists are your hosts and we're here to make sure you enjoy all of what Budapest has to offer. Pub crawls and activities are organized daily. We offer a full kitchen, dinning area and a BBQ grill outside. Our lounge has a big screen smart tv, XBOX 360, and Nintendo Wii for those times when you just want to hang out and chill. Our game room has free full size billiards table and table soccer. If you're feeling more adventurous we sell tickets for booze cruises up and down the Danube, caving tours, the gun firing range and even paint ball.
Prices are per person per night.
