I like to think our hostel isn't like the typical type of hostels that most places are becoming now a days. We strive to make our team and as well as our guests become part of our family. We cook dinners together, have nights out together, and show guests around the city; because we truly enjoy living in this city and want to show everyone how amazing it is. We have an extensive social program and we are located in the heart of Budapest, near all the attractions. For those who like to prepare their own meals, the central market hall is at the end of our street. Also, we encourage dinner nights so we can all enjoy each others company. And, after you go we try to stay in contact, because like I said- we are all family, and we'd love for you to be part of it!
Realistically? Like complete crap...Ok, haha. So about myself; well I am sarcastic and love to joke (obviously it's hard to pick up on sarcasm in typing, so, I'm sorry). :-) But you hopefully read the above paragraph... =D We are all young local and international people who are outgoing, fun, ready to show you a good time in 'Pest, yet still have a professional manner. You’ll be treated like part of our family; which at times does mean we expect you to collaborate with your activities. When you have your free time, then we will be hanging out with guests, watching movies, jamming, or hitting the bars that Budapest is so famous for. The staff here are mostly like me (and most other travelers) we love music, sport, people, travel, movies, beer, liquor …but most of all, BUDAPEST!
It was my first experience with worldpackers and I couldn't have asked for anything better. I loved the people (staff and guests) and the hostel, it really felt like home during my five weeks there, I will go back there for sure. The tasks were pretty easy and not much with many free days a week to explore the amazing city of Budapest or travel around. I would definitely recommend it!!!

I stayed in the Suite Hostel for 2 weeks, at the beginning the staff welcomed me very well but I had a disclaimer with one of the volunteers, I simply asked a question the day I was working and he called me dumb, saying that I asked a lot of questions. By the way, the structure is HORRIBLE! The staffs sleep on how full of suitcases, cleaning supplies, everything you imagine is thrown in that room along with the beds. My experience was not so bad because we worked 2x a week for 12 hours each day and then we had 5 days free. This was good because I had many free days that I got to know the city.
