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.

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:(
