I've been in Budapest last year in June. My experience at Marco Polo Hostel was a great one. It was for the first time I decided to make a reservation at a hostel and I didn't expected so much. But honestly I was surprised when I saw the hostel and obviously the room. Nice, clean and more spacious that I... More

This hostel is really clean and stuff is extremely helpful. Unfortunately , there is no common room to chill out and meet new people. But if one is not in the mood for parties this place is really quiet to sleep

Rooms are clean, hostel is pretty close to metro station, and not far from supermarket Spar. Staff is also very helpful and cool! Bathroom is also OK. There are a lot of different cafés and restaurants nearby.

The rooms were spacious and clean, the location was amazing and had all the amenities you would expect from a decent hostel. I would have to say that the guy who worked in reception was great; both knowledgeable, friendly and really added to making our stay enjoyable. I think his name was David (dude with a bandana).

I guess everything goes well until a small problem ensues. Then you see how people really are: like the staff at the hostel. Be careful of your belongings and mind the cleaners, they do steal things from travellers. The hostel is dirtier than average and has no working WiFi in the rooms. There is no kitchen, but you can purchase... More

The service was pretty decent, we could arrive to check-in at any time and the staff is nice and kind. The price is adequate for what you get. Nice location with metro station near enough (Astoria). Sadly enough during our time there the internet service broke down, and took too long for them to fix it. Not a big deal,... More

Really great location, quite close to lots of the famous ruin bars which are a must see experience, the hostel itself was clean and tidy, reception manned 24hrs, lockable wardrobes which felt quite safe, we went on a stag weekend and shared 4 to a room, but I think most of the rooms were either 2 or 3 beds.

The staff welcome was not very warm - while they let me check in earlier, but they didn't seem very happy about it. During my whole exchange with the receptionists (there were two), only one looked at me to talk to me, while the other was obviously directing what he said in Hungarian without acknowledging my existence.

This hostel is fine if you are travelling through but you wouldnt want to stay here too much longer. The beds are not comfortable and the rooms smell really bad. It is in quite a good location but I would not stay here again. Mostly 18 year olds.

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter

Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
