Can't say enough positive things about this place. The location is quite good. The staff are absolutely amazing, eager to help in any way, as well as just being good company. The hostel is clean and there are always fun events going on every day and night of the week. If you are looking for a good time in Budapest... More

Retox party hostel was my second home in Budapest - despite staying at its the weird and wonderful sister hostel Grandio I spent a lot of time here! Retox bar is the most wild and ridiculous amount of fun you could have between four walls. The staff are what makes it into a place you want to stay forever -... More

Had an AMAZING time at Retox, the only thing I regret is not staying more days! The staff are crazy, friendly and super helpful at all times. You will not be bored one second with all fellow travellers and the activities the staff organise for you every day. If you want to make unforgettable memories and go crazy this is... More

We booked into Retox for 2 days and ended up staying for 8 days. It's got everything you need to get wasted and have a wild time. The staff are unstoppable, they're all really cool people who will not hesitate to socialise and drink with guests like us. Loads of cool events on every night like boat parties, alcoholympics, pub... More

I don't know where to begin. I was nearing the last leg of my Euro Trip and my funds were drying up. I was supposed to go to Switzerland but didn't think I would be able to enjoy myself there. A bunch of people that I've met from earlier hostels had suggested Budapest and someone specifically recommended Retox Party Hostel.... More

Amazingly friendly staff, great vibes, and just an all around good time. This is not the place to stay if you want to sleep (at least at night). Shout out to Jay aka Rapunzel who helped my friend and I get our bearings in Budapest over a long weekend in November. The hostel knows how to organize a quality pub... More

I surprisingly enjoyed my few days at Retox, it's not my usual style hostel I would of stayed in but I have no regrets! My friend and I were welcomed quickly and warmly by Wasp and Noddy and we were given a good low-down on Budapest. The whole team were always helpful, full of info and always making sure we... More

I have never so quickly had complete strangers converted to close friends. The second I entered Retox I felt like practically family. It might be a party hostel and the staff definitely know how to turn up but they also know how to run a hostel! The place is incredibly clean. Yes you'll probably have people having sex in your...

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
