“Cheap & nice hostel or apartments right in the center of Budapest.”
Reviewed 10 October 2012

Flying from Rome and arriving at Budapest T2 after midnight won`t be easy to get transport if not for the arrangements made by the hostel personal,run and managed by some nice & friendly youths which cost us 15 Euros for a car-ride from airport-hostel and another 15 Euros car service from hostel-airport fro 4 persons with cabin bags of course not big lugguages. Breakfast was simple bread,magarine & cheese and cornflakes,milk etc but please take note each & everyone has to do dishing after eating at the kitchen on reception floor. After all we were 4 and we got 2 doublerooms at 1/2 ground floor,my room also included a kitchen wherelse my 2 friends got a bigger doubleroom,sharing bathroom & toilet. That means our floor consists of 3 rooms,2 double & 1 triple I think. We had our own keys each and code to open the main door to the hostel. This hostel used to be meant only for youths before but then they began to allow even family and elderly is a plus. Toilet & bathroom are clean however guests are requested to co-operate and to keep the premises as it were for every guest`s comfort,is a good thing and that`s why just to keep the costs low. We paid only 180 Euros for 3 nights for 2 double-rooms plus free wifi & breakfast but since we have our own kitchen,we decided to buy our own foodstuffs from a supermarket just next block away. If one wants to travel on a budget then I would recommend this hostel,cheap with nice & friendly staff and right in the middle of Budapest city.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hidden treasure of a hostel, hard to find because there is no street sign - only a tiny button with the word hostel. Very well run, wonderfu,l friendly, helpful staff.

Me and my boyfriend were there just recently and we wanted to be located in middle of everything where the biggest sightseeing is. Choosing Boomerang Hostel we couldn't have been more lucky! We got a nice flat near to the Opera and in a short walking distance from where the main hostel is located. Our flat was big and bright with all equipments that was needed for longer stay such as washing machine, fridge, cooking stow and so if we didn't feel like going out for dinner, but that never happened cause this city has so many things to offer. For those who have decide to visit Budapest for a long time I do recommend you to rent a flat from them.
Including with the room there was a breakfast, just a nice and small that worked for me and my boyfriend.
There was a misunderstanding on our side but we thought the wifi was available for apartments too and when asking the staff about it they offered us a wireless net through T-mobile usb key by paying a insurance fee that we got back after our staying. The staff was really helpful in all ways. If we needed something they made calls for us. When leaving they offered us a driver from them to take us to the airport by a minimum fee (that fee was actually less than taking the air shuttle or taxi).

So overall we were so happy with Boomerang and next time we come for a visit to Budapest we are going to choose them.

I stayed for 3 nights in the Parliament Apartment and it's an Excellent location in the heart of Budapest, just behind the Parliament and very close to all the attractions. Huge flat with kitchen-living room, bedroom and bathroom, totally renewed in a old typical hungarian building. Helpful staff and very clean. They have different apartments all over the city and rooms in the hostel - but I bet this flat is the best one!! One negative point: no internet accesa in the flat.

Me and a friend went to Budapest for a mini-break holiday (3 nights) in this very central hostel. The hotel is at a walking distance from major attractions, starting with the Basilica of St Stephen and the Parliament. It is also close to the metro station. The staff was always very helpful and friendly, and when we checked-in we got a customized guide throughout the main attractions we should see in a weekend. The hostel sells tickets to transportation or any sight (thermal baths), which makes life much easier.
The room (double) with shared bathroom was very clean and tidy but there were no curtains to protect from voyeur neighbors in the building just across the other side of the street.
One major drawback was the breakfast, which was very poor (just bread, milk, cereals, home-made jam and butter).
Free wi-fi and cheap price.
If I come back to Budapest, I will certainly stay here again.

Me and a mate visited Budapest at the end of November 2011 and we were impressed with this apartment. It is very central and within five minutes of attractions like St. Stephens Bascillica and the Parliament Building. We did not need to use public transport once we were in the city. The apartment we stayed in was separate from the hostel but only a five minute walk from the reception. The two (very attractive) girls behind the reception spoke excellent English, very friendly making good suggestions on where to eat, drink and general advice about the city. One of the girls behind reception walked with us to show us the apartment.

The apartment was in an old residential buidling which you go through a door via a courtyard. It was very spacious, had all mod cons, felt secure and felt like a home. I've paid more to stay in dorms at a hostel which was inferior to the apartments offerred by Boomerang.

When we left to get our flight home, we had to be at the airport very early for a 6am flight. The reception staff arranged for a driver to pick us up at 3:30am for only 4000 HUF (about £12). The driver arrived on time, spoke good English and was friendly.

When I return to Budapest, I will stay here again without a doubt.

Super location, 2 mins walk from a metro line. Staff were realy helpful throughout the entire stay - even tracking down my lost bag from the airport. Free wi-fi and great kitchen facilities, and at a good cheap price.
