Home Made Hostel isn't your average day to day hostel, this one really does its name justice. Even though I only stayed for two nights, I had an amazing experience. The people who work here welcome you with open arms and make you feel comfortable only after being there for a mere couple of minutes. They’ll answer any questions you have, wether it’s about the hostel, Budapest or anything else, not because they have to but because they actually enjoy talking to you. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and the decoration is great. I loved the overall feel, it’s not a big place, which adds to its charm and “home made” feel. Also, you start recognizing faces and once you meet the people who stay there, you realize they’re just as great as the hostel itself. Is there anything I didn’t like about my stay? I don’t tend to give perfect scores, but if there’s a hostel that deserves it, it’s this one. If you’re looking for a cheap, convenient (free wifi, plenty of bathrooms, kitchen for cooking), cozy (spacious rooms, vintage interior design, a lot of couches) and (almost forgot this) at a very central location in the heart of the city (oktogon station, metro line 1), don’t hesitate to come here.
*Every Tuesday the staff organizes a (free) dinner for the entire hostel, I had the chance to attend one and it was a lot of fun. People from different countries, eating Hungarian food, drinking wine, sharing stories, getting drunk and laughing together. It was my last night in Budapest, and a great closure to my trip.
*I had an early plane to catch and slept over my alarm, the guy who worked the night shift came to wake me up with a cup of tea.. I love you, even my mom wouldn’t do that.
