Credit where credits due, the Marco Polo was warm and dry and appeared secure (you're made to leave your key at reception every time you leave, presumably so if you are mugged the building isn't at risk). But our overall experience was disappointing. The front desk staff, who the Marco Polo claim are able to book a variety of activities,...

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 3 nights (30th Dec - 2nd Jan), we found it to be a perfect base to explore Budapest. We had a private room with a private bathroom, the room was clean, comfortable and very warm. The shower was a little basic, however the water was hot and it had a lot of power...

I enjoyed my stay here. The layout of my dorm ensures that you keep the disruption to a minimum. Each room has its own toilets and showers. Breakfast was included with how much I paid and was therefore good value for money. It is a good location as there are quite a few bars and restaurants nearby. The staff were...

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...

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...

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,...

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s 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.
