We’re not your average hostel, indeed, but rather a chain of apartments and dorms located in the very centre of Budapest around St. Stephen's Basilica. If you fancy some privacy and want to stay in a place that feels just like home, come to Pal's Hostel and enjoy your very own apartment in Budapest! As well as private apartments, we also offer private rooms with shared bathrooms, and even shared dorms!

Pal's Hostel started at small and humble beginnings - we earned our place on the map by winning Hoscar of 'Best Hostel in Hungary 2013', '1st Country winner in Hungary 2014' and a nomination for 'Worldwide small hostel 2014', and since then we have grown into a greatly respected and popular hostel, even being awarded '10th Best Large Hostel Worldwide 2018' :)

Pal's Hostel is located in the very centre of downtown. From here you can easily get to most of the sights on foot, such as Saint Stephen's Basilica, The Chain Bridge, Parliament, Andrassy Avenue (part of the World Heritage), the Opera House, the Great Synagogue, the National Museum, Vaci Street, and Vorosmarty Square. The Danube bank is only a five minute walk away too! Nearby there are also many restaurants, cafes, pubs, clubs, and party places all within walking distance, like Akvarium Club, Anker Club, Castro Bistro, Szimpla Pub and Katapult. We are also located very close to Deak Ferenc Square, which is the main junction for all underground metro trains in Budapest.

Other important sightseeing spots are near by too, such as Buda Castle (part of the World Heritage, along with the Fisherman's Bastion, Matthias Church and the National Gallery), as well as Heroes' Square, the City Park and the baths (Szechenyi, Gellert, Rudas). You can walk to these places from our hostel in 20-30 minutes.

Each day of the week we have a different activity or event on offer to our guests! Check out our activity board in reception to see what's going on! The current activity schedule is as follows :)
Monday - Family Dinner
Wednesday - Pub Quiz
Thursday - Goulash Soup and Palinka Tasting
Friday - Family Dinner + Drinking Jenga
Saturday - Family Dinner + Beer Pong
Sunday - Movie Night

Here at Pal's we are happy to be at your assistance; you can print your e-ticket, buy tickets for the Szechenyi baths, Gellert baths or even the caving tour. We also sell the Budapest Card. We have great local knowledge and advice on the best spots in town to share with you! We can also help you get to Ozora Festival, Sziget Festival or Balaton Sound!

We can even pick you up at the airport for €24 for 1-4 people; this means if there’s four of you it’s only €6 per person. Public transport is about €2.50 per person. Our contact information will be in your booking confirmation email.

Please note that our rooms called 'Basic Double Bed Private (Shared Bathroom)' are literally with double beds, not two single 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:)).
Also, we have no A/C:(

  • Important Information

    Things to Note

    This is not a party hostel. Our rooms/apartments are in different buildings (yet very close to each other), and there are also local residents living in these buildings - please be mindful of their sleep and don't be loud after 10 pm, you can have parties in the party district nearby :) Our reception desk opens from 9 am to 2 am, but you can only check-in after 2 pm. If you arrive before 2pm we can hold your luggage free of charge and you can wait in our lobby. We'll contact you for detailed information of your arrival to estimate your check-in time. Our reception desk is open from 9 am to 2 am every day. If you arrive later than that we will come back to let you in. We will contact you for detailed information about your arrival - such as train or flight details - a few days before your arrival. Please note that we aren't able to accept credit card payments so your remaining balance should be paid in cash. Please also note, for large groups exceeding more than 15 people/4 rooms, Pal's Hostel reserves the right to cancel your booking at any time.
