The Hostelz.com Review

Hipster Hostel is a bright, airy space that's well located in the heart of Budapest. The hostel is located in a renovated apartment unit in a typical Hungarian-style apartment building. It has gorgeous parqué floors, spacious rooms, and high ceilings. The hostel will allow early check-in if the bed is available, which is great if you're coming into Budapest on an overnight train. Strong Wi-Fi is available throughout the hostel, including the dorm rooms. Laundry service is provided for a fee.

The Location

The hostel is off the metro's Blue Line, Kálvin tér station. In the station underpass, exit at Baross utca, walk a hundred meters, and the hostel will be on the right. There is no signage for the hostel at the front door, but look for the Yun Restaurant to the right of the main entry door.

Rooms and Bathrooms

There are two large dorm rooms in the main hostel. There is a private room available on another floor in the building. The ten-bed dorm is spacious, with six single, non-bunk beds surrounding the perimeter of the room. There are two double beds in the loft portion of the room. Each bed has a reading light. The ceilings of the room are so high that they are able to have a loft space in the room without compromising any feeling of spaciousness. The rooms are not kept locked, but lockers are provided. The hostel is secure, with key access for both the main door at the street and the individual unit inside the building. Linens and towels are provided and the beds and bedding are comfortable. The bathrooms are clean and hot water is provided.

Common Spaces

There is a large common/lounge area in the main room of the hostel. There are old-style chairs surrounding a large, flat-screen TV and a desk with a computer available for guest use. There is also a large, well-equipped kitchen available for cooking. The common spaces in the hostel are bright and spacious and comfortable for hanging out. The hostel is not a party hostel, but has a nice and cozy environment suitable for meeting other travelers.

Summary

Overall Hipster Hostel lives up to its name -- it is a hip and cool space that's well located in the heart of Budapest. The friendly staff are available twenty-four hours a day for any guest needs.

Clean, comfortable, and very good location
Hipster Hostel is one of the best hostel I've ever seen in my life. Very charming, so clean and in a very good location. The place is very quiet, so if you're looking for a party place you better look somewhere else. A very good price for what it offers. The staff is very kind, the rooms are big and the kitchen very nice. If i go back to wonderful BP I'll book to Hipster Hostel for sure. Candy room was so nice for the three of us.

Great!!!!
Excellent place with extremely helpful and kind staff! Location is superb, on a pedestrian street full of terraces, 1 min away from a very central metro station. Rooms are clean, cosy, and big. Don't hesitate to stay in this charming place!
