I absolutely loved my stay here. It's a tiny hostel, only about 26 beds I believe, which is perfect. Everyone hangs out in the common area, so every night you can find people hanging out, playing board games/cards, or just drinking beer and chatting. The staff are incredible, friendly, and in most cases quirky, and one of them even came...

Definitely not a party hostel (although people definitely go out to party together). Free coffee, tea (very important after drinking, and offered as soon as you walk in). Sheldon (one of the employees) spent about 15 minutes giving me very detailed tips about what to see, do, and eat. It's clear he's very passionate about helping people. His tips were...

One of the most hotels, I stayed in Budapest. It's right at the centre of Budapest, where everything needed could be found there, from shopping to nightlife. The parking garage is about 2 minutes walking. At this place, you feel back home on your bed, then when you get out, you are surrounded by cafes, shopping stores, restaurants, bars and...

I choose this hostel following the good reviews and I've been completely satisfied with my choice. It is a centrally located hostel, in a safe neighbourhood, and near the main "must see" things of Budapest. At arrival I received two city maps, full of information about what to see and where to eat/drink like a local and the places they...

You feel so welcome as soon as you walk through the door. You get a brief orientation of the city and tips on what to do and where to eat. It's so small that you meet everyone very quickly, share stories, even play on the guitar they have there. I left another hostel for this one and it was such...

Loft Hostel was definitely one of the highlights of my time in Budapest, it's just the right size for meeting new people and the facilities provided are great for social interaction. The rooms are spacious and the staff are amazing. There's honestly nothing bad I can say about this place. One of the highlights had to be the staff taking...

My friend and I had a great time at The Loft! It's small enough where you can meet new friends, hang out or cook meals. Location was perfect for walking to our destinations. Sheldon and Chris were always available to give us recommendations and were so friendly! We would definitely stay again!

Our trip to Budapest would not have been this memorable, if we hadn't stayed at this beautiful hostel. Extremely nice and super helpful people run this place with a passion to making your stay as beautiful as possible. They came up with great suggestions on how to make the most of our stay in Budapest and recommended places and restaurants...

Can't recommend this place enough. I've stayed in my fair share of hostels and this has to be among the very best. Staff are super friendly, helpful, and socialize with guests, and the atmosphere is very warm and welcoming - I met so many great people and this made my experience in Budapest that much better.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hi backpacker! We are here to welcome you to Budapest and also to invite you to join our community at The Loft--a community that shares with each other, explores together and stays up into the wee hours because there is still more beer in the refrigerator and the conversation is too good to end. One that celebrates the thrill of a new city, new food and new people, but also understands the need for long, glorious, uninterrupted sleep (having spent too many nights in airports to save a euro), never ending hot water and the rejuvenating qualities of a perfect, giant couch. So if you are tired--you sleep. If you are hungry--you eat. And whenever you are ready to go outside and see Budapest, we will not drag you by the wrist to the obvious places, but we will stand beside you and help to navigate the twisting roads, quirky museums, cheap cafes and uniquely-Budapest bars that collectively are the pulse of the city. We are a small space at Loft, but it suits us and our travelers perfectly. We are simply ourselves here, but the music is always on, the kettle is always on, we are happy and most of all? We really hope you will join us. The Staff, The Loft. Our hostel workers are lovers of fine cuisine, and other such things. ... more   less
