Pal's hostel is not a regular hostel, but a chain of apartments in the center of Budapest around the St. Stephen's Basilica. If you favour privacy and want to stay at a place that feels just like home, come to Pal's Hostel Budapest.
We won the Hoscar of 'Best hostel in Hungary 2013':)

Enjoying the privacy of your own apartment doesn't mean you have to miss our personal attention. Our reception desk is next to St. Stephen's Square and our staff will be glad to help you planning your stay, giving information and an individual view on Budapest.

We offer airport pick up and drop off (for 24 EUR for up to 4 persons: this means 6 EUR per person, while public transport is about 3 EUR per person).

Things to note:

Please note that you can check-in to your room from 14:00. If you arrive before that we can lock up your luggage and you can wait in our 'lobby'.
Please also note that we can not accept credit cards.
Please note that our rooms called 'Basic Double Bed Private (Shared Bathroom)' are literally with double beds.
Please also note that we have no elevator for the rooms with shared bathrooms (but they’re only on the 1st and 2nd floors:)).
And we have no A/C:(

'This is not a party hostel.
Our rooms/apartments are in different buildings (very close to each other:)). There are also local residents living in these buildings. Please mind their sleep. Don't be loud after 10 pm. You can have parties in 500 meters:)

Our reception desk opens from 10 am to 10 pm. But you can check-in at night as well. We'll contact you for detailed information of your arrival to estimate your check-in time:)

The hostel is in the very downtown of Budapest, within walking distance of the "Soho of Budapest' - Opera House, plenty of theatres and music clubs and a wide-ranging choice of restaurants, cafs and pubs.

Traditional sight-seeing spots like Heroe's Square or Buda Castle are also within easy reach and the Danube is only 5 minutes by foot.

It is the ideal base for exploring Budapest's sights and night life, in a beautiful and calm area.
Prices are per person per night.
