Description de l’établissement


In light of the COVID-19 global pandemic Meander Hostel may not be ready to accept guests at this time, so if you do make a booking for the immediate future it may be moved to our sister hostel, Vitae Hostel, while we finalise our situation in this confusing time.



A haven for backpackers, run by backpackers. A place to call home on your adventures, a tribe of fellow travelers and explorers, and a family that anyone with an open mind can be a part of.

Life out of a backpack can be exhausting, we know, so we believe a great hostel isn’t just about the facilities, it’s about the sense of openness and feeling of being welcomed by friends after weeks or months on the road. We believe a great hostel and the friends you make there can elevate your experience of a city, and that’s why we’ve worked to build this melting pot for backpackers - a place where you can unwind and socialize with a local beer in one of our common areas, or chill in our courtyard as you share stories and experiences with fellow travelers.

We aren’t your typical sterile hotel-esque environment. We’re based in a traditional, 19th century Hungarian building full of character, located within the heart of Budapest's central 6th district. Within walking distance of us are some of the city's major sights such as St. Stephen's Basilica and the Chain Bridge, a number of the ruin bars the city is famous for and only a short metro ride from the Szechenyi thermal baths.

Although we aren’t a party hostel, we’d love for you to join us on our daily and nightly events such as pub crawls, game evenings and boat parties. We have an awesome little hipster basement bar, frequented by both locals and backpackers that offers €1 beers and live music. We kick off every night here and it’s an ideal environment to just be yourself with good company before you head out for a night with new friends.

Our friendly, English speaking team is always available to provide you with inside tips and all the information you need so you can make the most of all the incredible sights Budapest has to offer. Upon check in we like to give all our guests a free map of the city and point out all the best spots, from the major tourist sights to hidden gems and information about the various day events and activities around the city.

Aside from a comfortable bed, you can make use of our well equipped kitchen, and if cooking isn't your thing then you can join the team here for our nightly family dinner at only the cost of the ingredients. On top of all that, of course we've got the basics: free WIFI in all the rooms, a communal computer, free tea and coffee, free linen, free towel rental, free maps, free lockers, as well as adapters and padlocks for hire.

Meander is a genuine backpacker's hostel and if you love socializing and making friends from all across the world then you're going to love our little oasis in this amazing city.

Please note:

- As we are a youth hostel we have a general age guideline of 18-40. We reserve the right to refuse bookings to anyone outside of this age range, however with prior notice exceptions can be made. If you are outside of this age range please contact us so we can discuss your options.

- We offer a 24 hour check in, but please be aware our office hours are 8am - 12am/Midnight. If you are arriving outside of these hours please confirm your arrival time beforehand so we can make sure there is a staff member available to check you in.

- We are a strictly drug free hostel and have a zero tolerance policy on the matter. If a single person in any booking is caught on drugs, with drugs or asking for them, inside our outside of the hostel, every person in the booking will be evicted immediately without refund.

- Payment of your full balance is required in CASH ONLY at check-in in either the local currency, Hungarian Forint, or Euros, however with the exchange rate we operate by we encourage all our guests to pay in Hungarian Forint.

- All guests will be required to pay a key deposit upon check-in that will be returned upon check-out so long as the key is not lost and no damage has been done to the hostel. For bookings of under 6 people the key deposit is 3,000 HUF while in cases of groups of 6 or more, each guest will have to provide a 10,000 HUF security deposit. Voir le règlement intérieur


Créée par des voyageurs pour des voyageurs, Meander Hostel est l'auberge de jeunesse toute trouvée pour une pause bien méritée sur votre route. Nous mettons un point d'honneur à créer une communauté conviviale, en proposant un espace accueillant. Vous pourrez vous détendre dans les dortoirs et faire de nouvelles rencontres autour de bons petits plats préparés dans notre cuisine. Faites-vous des amis dans notre bar original en sous-sol, prisé des locaux comme des voyageurs, tout en dégustant des bières à 1 € sur fond de musique live. Vous avez toujours rêvé de faire la fête sur un bateau ? Rejoignez-nous à bord, ou profitez de nos autres activités pleines de fun comme la tournée des bars et les soirées de jeux.


Au moment du check-in, notre équipe sera là pour vous conseiller comme un local, pour tout savoir sur les meilleurs « ruin bars » de Budapest et pour vous remettre un plan de la ville gratuit. La basilique Saint-Étienne de Pest est à 10 minutes à pied ; le pont des Chaînes hautement instagrammable est quant à lui à 20 minutes. Nous sommes à cinq stations de métro des Thermes Széchenyi aux propriétés apaisantes. De la station Oktogon, à 3 minutes à pied de l'auberge, vous pourrez rayonner dans toute la ville en transports en commun. Vous arrivez de l'aéroport de Budapest ? Prenez le bus ou le train pour rejoindre l'auberge en moins d'une heure, ou pensez à réserver votre transfert auprès de nos services.

Chambres et Dortoirs

Nous proposons des dortoirs mixtes et des chambres privées, inspirés par la musique et habillés de couleurs vives. Tous sont équipés de salles de bain communes. Vous soignerez votre portefeuille grâce à de petites attentions comme le casier à bagage, les draps et serviettes gratuits.

Extras et activités

Vous allez adorer passer du temps dans la cour ou vous installer dans l'une de nos salles communes confortables. À vous la PlayStation et les jeux de société, sauf si vous préférez planifier votre itinéraire du lendemain en utilisant le wi-fi gratuit. Le décor vaut également le détour ; nous nous trouvons dans un bâtiment traditionnel du XIXe siècle plein de caractère. Un véritable refuge en pleine ville.

    With 2 other friends, we really love to be in the Meander Hostel. We were very well welcome thanks to Jess and she gives us a lot of very good advice to visit wonderful and secret places in Budapest! Don't forget to ask here, you will be not disappointed !! :) The team organizes activities every day, you can be boring and you will meet a lot of new friends for sure! You are just next to Retox hostel so you can have a big party there and came back to sleep well in a quiet room! Very good plan ;)

    The best thing about this Hostel is the location, the helpful and friendly staff but don't expect much more. The room, the bathroom and the common areas were super dirty. Most of the people I have been sharing my room with , were pretty disrespectful (reflect the vibe of the place : "we're here to have fun and for the rest we don't care") plus, all the food we put in the fridge disappeared... That's Ok if you're only in Budapest to party with friends but otherwise better to avoid this place.
