I stayed for three nights last August, and fun is an understatement. The hostel itself is a bit rundown, and not the cleanest stay in the world, but the people you meet, the parties they throw, and experiences you have are on a level of it's own. If you're looking to party and meet awesome people this is the place...

The hostel is a party hostel so expect a party atmosphere! Overall, the hostel was incredibly safe (have security on the door), clean, and a lot of fun. The staff were incredibly warm, welcoming and inclusive. They were a lot of fun, but were responsible and ensured our stay was great. They booked us tickets for the Baths, caving and...

If you literally just want to get thrashed via alcohol and dont mind staying in a bit of a grungy hostel this is the place to be! Come expecting to replace all the missed hours of sleep with shots upon shots instead! Awesome place to party, go for the jager train!

Retox is an amazing hostel in the 7th district in Budapest! Definitely a party hostel where you will meet incredible people (especially the staff) and be shown some lovely times! Can't possibly pick a favorite moment between days filled with strawpeedos, alcoholympics, Ghillie covered in glitter doing a dirty pint, 3 am hand stand competitions and so on! If you...

I visited Budapest New years 2016. I ended up extending my stay by 3 days because of this place. The first thing is that it is cheap (Just like everything else in Budapest). The second thing is that they always have something going on. Every day of the week, they have something crazy fun planned. This place is located right...

i went to retox in feb/17. the hostel has a big bar (open to the public) and a commom area (which is a room with kitchen appliances, etc). the rooms look cool but they lack plugs. i felt that the hostel was good for groups but not warm enough for a solo traveller. if you are travelling by your own,...

I stayed in retox because it is a party hostel. But there is a big difference between a party hostel and a hostel that looks more like a squat house, disgustingly dirty and with drunk people from 9 am. The price is expensive, same that other Hostel much better. Even if u are looking for party, fiesta, whatever, is doesnt...

Having read the reviews online about what to expect at Retox Hostel, we three South Africans expected a bit of a rowdy time in Budapest, but what really transpired during our 3 night stay blew us away. Being accepted into the Retox family only requires a quick stint in the common room and perhaps a Shotgun and Strawpedo or two....

Retox party hostel is the best hostel in the whole entire world. I've travelled enough to know what makes somewhere good and the staff complete this hostel. As soon as you walk in it feels like a family. Maybe a bit of a strange and different family but family none the less. It's obviously a party hostel so partying is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
People who travel to Budapest don’t come for the clean streets, the peaceful nights, the immaculate and modern buildings...they go to Vienna for that. People who want to experience the grit, the underground, the alternative, the unseen, undiscovered, the hidden, they come to Budapest and somewhere behind an abandoned building with graffiti on the doors…… you’ll find Retox guests and staff. If you can’t work the name out - you probably shouldn’t come. If you can’t stand a morning view of a concrete jungle, stay at Grandio where there is a leafy jungle. If you want clinical clean-cut and pristine, this is not the place for you. But if you want to be part of a ‘new’ hostel scene where you walk into an overwhelming sense that stories from here are going to be passed onto your grand kids, (if you make it that long)… then join us at Retox. The name says it all, we like life, we don’t think too much about the future, but we live for the moment. We hit it hard and fast at night, and we wait a moment or two before considering the day. We do make it out sightseeing, but not to take photos and send postcards, but to admire views. We go to museums not to please our parents, but to be absorbed in culture. We party hard, not because it’s new and exciting, but because having fun is a much a better idea than not. We meet people not so we are not alone, but so that we are part of a community we never want to leave. Also, it’s an awesome place with heart stopping artwork, in the heart of the bar district (with three bars on our street alone) and a few minutes walk from some of the major sights and with public transport everywhere we look!). Please Note: Retox is a party hostel so there may be loud and drunk people as residents. If this is not ok, please contact us and we will find more suitable accommodation. Carpe Noctem Vitae is a calmer hostel. We also cannot accept booking from people over 40, but groups are welcomed! ... more   less
