Property Description

Our Hostel is located on a huge green-belted-area, the Margaret Island in the heart of Budapest. Island Hostel features a large, 200 m2 terrace with the view of the Danube River, where you can just listen to the birds singing, rest or sunbathe in one of our hammocks, but if you looking for more activities, you can play tabletennis, bedminton and we can also lend you board- and cardgames too. If you're hungry for more, we have a grill and other outdoor cooking possibilities too.

The hostel is surrounded by a more than 900000 m2 park, with a running track around, so if you prefer active holidays, this is a perfect place for you. You can run every morning while the Sun rises, but you can also rent bikes and electric scooters from us to explore the Island and the city. We have outdoor gyms and swimming facilities around too: Hajos Alfred Uszoda is just 5 minutes walk from us and Palatinus Beach, and Margitszigeti Atlétikai Centrum is also 200 metres from Island Hostel.

But holidays are not just for resting or doing sports, during the summer season we have an own, on-site pub, where you can have a refreshing beer, delicious burgers, lángos (it's a hungarian traditional fast food!), and even various flavours of shishas. They offer an option for a la carte breakfast too with fresh orange juice or coffee.

All accommodation units come functionally furnished. Private rooms have double bed an each has an own bathroom. In the dormitories we have bunkbeds and all the dorm has its own bathroom and toilet. Island Hostel also offers fully equipped common kitchen make the comfort for the guests to feel at home.

ps.: our WiFi is really fast and available in the whole building :)

    Amazing little hostel on the island in the heart of Budapest. The city centre is just minutes away but despite this the building is surrounded by nature and peace. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely come back again.

    An amazing place to stay. Central to everything in the city, you'll likely only need one tram to get anywhere. The balcony is fantastic and you'll find it hard to leave at times. When arriving, make sure you walk on the inside of the island rather than the running track around the outside or you'll find yourself backtracking!

    Beautiful location, staff friendly and relaxed. Good outdoor common area. No lock on room door and lockers a bit too small for my bag. No air con and can hear talking from terrace in room so not recommended for light sleepers.

    The location and staff were very nice and I didn’t pay very much for the Hostel. I didn’t love that the doors going into the rooms weren’t locked and the front door is falling off.

    Location good but seems the bed liens and stuffs are reused !!! never feel like it was cleaned. Room not clean to be honest. Worst part is the bathroom without locker and it’s a mixed room with men. Cannot shower in a easy (crazy) way. There is a huge noice when someone used the water in the bathroom and cannot sleep in the early morning due to this

    Not a terrible hostel, in a very picturesque location which is amazing. They have a bar right underneath which serves cheap ish food. The staff couldn’t speak English very well but still tried their best to help us. Had a lot of fun on the balcony upstairs. Only issue was weird roommates and the toilets smelt disgusting.

    We did not enjoy our stay at the island hostel, I think this looks a lot better on the internet then what you actually get. The staff were very impersonal and didn't even remember we were guests there after an only an hour had past after our introductions. The shower flooded the whole bathroom we had no pre warning of this. The location isn't ideal, especially if you want to get a good night's sleep and it was way too over priced! Sorry island hostel! You need to book up your ideas
