“The only choice in Budapest!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2012

What a place! The lads running the show go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure you have the best time in Budapest. Congrats fellas, on running a truly amazing hostel and for making our time in Hungary truly memorable. The bar downstairs has outstanding service and quality cheap food. I won't even mention the parties, as they are absolutely indescribable. If you go anywhere else, you will regret it. Team C & B & S.

If you like to party this is the place to be in Budapest from the booze cruise to the rave cave you will do things here you only imagine getting away with in other country's
While I was here I made some great friends and saw some amazing things like a 450 jäger bomb water fall (the record is 650) I tried and failed at a champaign beer bong on the booze cruise and I may have got a little nude in the rave cave where anything goes.

If this hostel is full there are 3 others that are run by the same people and all hostels join all the party's I highly recommend this place
Thanks guys

Everything about The Retox PARTY Hostel screams AWESOME!! The staff, the travellers, the rooms, the nights, the hookah and the bean bag you pass out on. The hostel is walking distance from so many popular sights in Budapest and the staff give you a easy to follow map reading when you arrive so you know there is plenty to do. Every night there is a different event that involves three other hostels so you can meet so many people.
So if you are going to Budapest this is without a doubt the BEST PLACE TO STAY!!

If you're just looking for a great place to stay then maybe you should look elsewhere. Because this hostel is much more than just a good bed for the night, it is a part of your experience of Budapest! Retox party hostel has its own bar and club area where you can get good drinks and meet loads of new people. Its a hostel perfect for hitch-hikers, travellers, students and anyone with a passion for enjoying themselves. The hostel also runs a wide selection of events and bar crawls for those who want to party and explore the city. I went with 4 friends and we all had an amazing time. We cannot recommend this highly enough! Finally, I cannot end this review without a massive shout out to the staff at Retox hostel. By far the best I have come across and I have stayed in loads of hostels all across Europe including 2 in budapest. Johnny and Suzy went out of their way to make sure a stay was not just comfortable but memorable. If you are going to Budapest make sure you pay Retox a visit, you won't regret it!

I didn't know what to expect from a 'party hostel' before my friends and myself stayed at Retox, but when we crawled into the taxi after four of the best nights we've EVER had, I can truly say this is by far the best hostel I've ever stayed in, and I've done alot of travelling.
I didn't want to leave, and if I hadn't had other commitments I'd still be there.
They give you everything you need; a bed to crash in, all the tourist sights you would want to visit, great places to eat (The bar downstairs does an unbelievable burger n chips and chicken Cesar salad!) and most importantly the guys bring you out to the best pub and clubs that Budapest has to offer, and those guys don't stop partying til the early hours of the morning!
I could go on and on about how great our experience was, but its better if you try it for yourselves, this is the only hostel in Budapest you should even consider staying at if you have any sort of a party spirit.
Thanks to all the staff; Iggy, TT's, Johnny, Shmike and the rest for the best 4 nights we've had while travelling! We will be back VERY SOON! From Eoin and the Irish crew

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
