Hostel One Budapest

07. Erzsébetváros, Budapest

Hostel One Budapest is located 300 metres from the Deák Ferenc Tér stop, which connects to 3 of the Budapest metro lines, as well as bus and tram lines. Free WiFi is provided in all areas and computers are available in the lobby.

Each guest has a locker at their disposal. Bed linen are provided, and bathroom and toilet facilities are shared. The hostel offers free daytime activities, and evening events. This is by far the greatest experience I have with a hostel. I canceled my booking at another really famous party hostel and switched to this one and this decision has proved 100% correct. The super friendly and helpful staff ensures that there's a great balance between heavy partying and a good night of sleep, because everything died down after 23:30 with the departure of party goers that had just enjoyed family dinner and drinking games organized by the hostel. If that's not enough they took you on a night out at 23:30 every evening. It's very easy for you to meet like-minded backpackers from around the world. I sure as hell will come back again.

Hostels – what are they?

Hostels offer so much more than a cheap place to stay – they're also a fun way to travel and meet like-minded people. Common areas like shared kitchens and game rooms give you the chance to swap tips, tricks, and travel stories with backpackers from all over the world.

Hostels have come a long way since the first youth hostel opened back in 1912. Nowadays there's something for everyone, from budget "crash pads" to 5-star "poshtels." Whether you'd prefer a bed in a shared dorm or your own private room, you'll see that most hostels are cheaper than local hotels – and a lot more fun, too!
