When inhabitants in Budapest plan to meet in Pest, it is usually understood that they will meet at Oktogon in front of the Burger King. The aptly named Oktogon due to its eight sides is a major hub of Budapest allowing for easy access to most locations. Hidden in a courtyard just around the corner from Burger King is the Home Made Hostel. Located on the first floor, the rubber chicken that serves as a doorbell alerts visitors that this is no generic hostel. Stepping in the door, visitors find cluttered quirkiness that immediately separates the Home Made Hostel from the many other hostels offering an empty room with Ikea furniture. The young and helpful staff contribute to the relaxed atmosphere and are always happy to offer a few suggestions for tourists that they might not find in the guide books. There is a sit down kitchen, computers with internet access and a washing machine where dirty clothes can be freshened up for a small fee. There are several bathrooms and showers which are quite clean and the rooms offer simple beds which are definitely catering to the tourist who will probably not be spending too much time in them.

Local from Budapest

As they say on their website, they opened their hostel ‘with big enthusiasm’ in 2006. However they may feel about it now, there’s no doubt this is a tightly run operation - for what it is. Budget accommodation. It’s in a semi crumbling Art Nouveau era building which gives it a certain charm of the sort that used to be known as ‘shabby genteel’. Accommodation options run from the one bedroom ensuite with flatscreen TV - to an eight bed dormitory that’s modelled after a tree house. There are alternatives to Home Made in Budapest but this is the hostel people rave about year on year. Beds are more comfortable than you probably have any reason to expect for this price range in this economy. Service is brilliant. It’s all very well organised – which of course may put some people off. There is no curfew at Home Made, but after 10pm guests are expected to keep the volume on the low slide, which may not work if you are on the continental Europe keg party tour.

Excellent location, on the Pest side, halfway between St Stephen's Basilica and Margrit Island. Good location, reasonable rate and clean, that's all I need when I'm traveling alone (more money on the food!).
