Nice people. Not the cleanest of places, had a bad smell in our room but they tried to find a solution. The location wasn't bad, but it would be better in the summer. We were there in the winter so there wasn't much going on on the island. I bet in summer the location would be quite nice.

Location of the hostel is quite nice, on the island in the river. The view from the big terrace is pretty good too. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Eventho the lady was working alone there, she did a great job.

I have been staying here for a few months now and I had no issues with the hostel. The recepcionists and the staff are alright, we can ask them about anything and they help us if we ask them for anything.

The place and the view is awesome, the staff are very kind and friendly. The bathroom and the toilette was very clear and the rooms as well. Cheap and comfortable and least but not last very cheap. I had a great time with my friends.

I hate to spread negativity but I am currently writing this review from my hostel bed as two staff members and 10+ of their their friends hold a party outside our room. We have asked politely many times for them to turn down the volume to no success. The staff, and particularly the owner have shown no interest in any...

I stayed for an overnight here with my boyfriend to look around before travelling further. The reviews surpised me because I found this place chill with nice vibes and and amazing view to Danube. We have been talking with the receptionist and said the hostel is under reconstruction and they are doing really good job. 15 minutes to Parlament and...

I made a reservation in this hostel for the nights of 30 and 31 december (because all other hostels where taken or incredibly expensives fares). Yes, the price was small, but the hostel is located in Margerite's Island, an if you are young and want to go out for some nightlife in the city, this is the last place you...

We checked in fine and the other staff were really helpful. The young brunette lady even offered us the free food from the fridge and the guy with the pony tail and calming voice was really helpful advising us where to go in the city and what places were good to eat. The nightmare began when we were checking out,...

This was my first ever hostel, because I was always quite sceptical of going to one, but the low price of just €10/night plus the brilliant location convinced me. We stayed in one of the smaller dorms with 4 bunk beds and lockers. The bathroom was clean and modern, this hostel has been renovated quite a bit. The kitchen area...

Staying in Margaret Island

Neighbourhood Profile
Margaret Island
For Budapest, this island between the banks of the Danube represents a green oasis, especially during summer when its emerald spaces are much enjoyed by both locals and tourists. The gardens here are very picturesque; the flowers in full bloom give the landscape a variety of hues; the fountains add an air of freshness, making walks peaceful, joyful and romantic. A leisurely stroll will uncover a variety of sites, even the ruins of a medieval Franciscan church and convent are still visible.
