I have stayed in HBC hostel for 3 nights and it was wonderful. The bathrooms and bedrooms are nice and clean and the owner is a very very friendly person. He helped us with planning day trips, prepared food for us and would always search for movies in our language, even if we didn't want to watch Tv at all......

I stayed two nights with a friend, I thought it would be more party, but there were no people, so It was calm my stay there. It is good, well-located. The owner is a really good person, helped a lot, even to print my boarding passes! Clean bathroom, bedroom, etc...

A pleasant, comfortable place to stay for a reasonable price. I can fully recommend it for one night or a longer visit. Perfect location, the hostel is in the heart of Budapest, all the sights (Castle, main shopping streets, Parliament, thermal bathes, the Great Market Hall) are within walking distance or a short bus or tram ride. All public transport...

Wow. This is one of the best places i have ever stayed! even though the start of our trip to Budapest didnt start well, we arrived at the train station about Midnight, not knowing where we were going or how to reach the hostel, we called the owner and he gave clear instructions. Arriving two hours late, we found it...

What an amazing few days in the wonderful city of Budapest with HBC as our base. It is basic but clean in terms of accommodation but it's charm comes from the atmosphere and friendliness. We met amazing people who joined us on our exploration of Budapest and when we asked one night for a traditional Hungarian restaurant Anton made us...

We got to budapest exhausted and realized we did a mistake in the reservation dates! HBC hostel was MORE than helpful and contacted about 10 hostel to make sure we wouldn't be in the streets of budapest. They even offered as a last resort for us to sleep in the communal area. ADORABLE PEOPLE! We were actually quite disappointed we...

A friend and I stayed here in the 7 bed dorm. On arrival we were told that our beds were not ready - even though we emailed a check in time beforehand and didn't arrive until 6pm. We were basically told to go away for an hour or 2 until it was sorted. The sheets on the "clean" beds and...

Just back home from 4 great nights away in Budapest. It's an amazing city and anyone going there soon, I am truly jealous. What added hugely to my trip (myself plus 5 friends) was our stay at HBC hostel. It's price was very reasonable. It's location suited us perfectly. It was close to some of the best places to go...

Tony and his staff at HBC Hostel were incredible! They bent over backwards to make sure my brother and I were taken care of and even cooked dinner for us one night! We stayed there for 4 days 3 nights. Perfect location in Pest and close to all the main attractions in Pest!

I've stayed there for 3 days and 3 nights and I think it was a very good choice. First we didn't had big problems to move around, it is located only two blocks from one of the subway lines ("Arany János" Station, Line "M3"). Which allows the hostel to be easily reached either from the bus station or the airport,...
