Hostel California is made by backpackers for backpackers.
Why are we different from the rest of the hostels? We like to travel and know what's important for you. We're the most laid-back hostel you can find!
We've got cool parties, a sauna, free Wi-Fi, free calls to landlines in 170 countries, free luggage storage, a guitar and Hungarian open-fire cooking events! We also give personal 'Budget' and 'Busy' club and pub suggestions, pub, thermal spa and event discounts and free walking tours-a great opportunity for people interested in our beautiful city.
If you're an artist and have a picture in mind for us, you can paint us a mural on our walls. We'll supply the paint and the beer!
Best of all, the coolest people come here all the time! We were proudly been selected by the club A38 as a hostel for the bands playing there!
Hostel California is just two minutes' walk from the world heritage Andrassy street and about five more minutes' walk from Oktogon Square. We're in the heart of downtown. Hostel California is the closest hostel to the world famous Szechenyi Bath, the best spa in Budapest.
