I booked into a single room at the Marco Polo. The room was ensuite and comfortable enough. There was a TV (though it didn't work) and the front desk was exceptionally helpful for someone like me who has no sense of direction. There are no amenities provided at the hostel though for the price I paid you could hardly expect...

Positives: great location. 24h reception. Nice and helpful staff. Option of online checkin before arrival so checkin becomes faster and easier. Option of airport shuttle from airport to hostel, 6000huf, worth it, especially when you arrive late at night like I did. I booked a private 2-room and it was just fine. Bed more comfy than it looks. Negatives: breakfast...

We have stayed in many hostels in the past that have all been great, shame about this one. We came to Budapest in March and were both constantly cold in our room with no controls for the heater. The shower was hand held and Luke warm at best. Hair and other disgusting oddities in the beds. The only iron in...

Dear Harry B, Thank you very much for taking the time and share your detailed experiences with us. I am sad to learn that the service of the hostel could not meet your expectations.

It was good. Great for budget travelers as localization and staff is perfect, everything needed is also there. Loved the fact that 12-person dorm was divided into smaller sectors which helped to keep privacy but still in pair with good price. I do reccomend

We staid for two nights in a 12 bunk-bed dormitory, because WizzTours messed-up our reservation, and it was OK. The staff is very nice and they all speak English. The room was clean and quiet with good beds. The common room in the basement is cool and the breakfast is OK for a hostel. Overall, would check-in again.

I stayed in a four-bedded room for 3 nights and as a solo traveller i found it perfect. The room was clean and cozy. The staff is very helpful and nice and the position is just perfect, close to the city centre and to the ruin pubs. The only downside is that the heating was too high and i had...

We had a really good time during our trip to budapest in this Hostel. The rooms are okay, and even though they are shared with other 12 people they are really private. We had two bunks for my friend and me and we can´t say anything bad about it. The price is perfect for what you get.

The dormitories are nice because there is some privacy with curtains between the beds. It is also very warm, which is good when it is so cold outside... Breakfast is ok for the price we payed (2,80€).

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
