Learning & Fun




This was my second time working at Pal's, the work is really simple at the reception, since they have full time receptionists workers, you help them on basic things, Max let us organize the schedule and he is very flexible and always available to help us. You have a lot of free time to explore the amazing Buda fuckin Pest and also travel around easily. Highly recommend this place.




This is my first volunteering opportunity and Im so happy that I did it, Max made me feel part of the family from the first day, everyone was very friendly and the work is easy, everyday is lots of fun here and I really recommend this hostel!




Pals Hostel is an amazing place ! I enjoyed every single day there. Pals Hostel has a really good location, is in main center.. I knew new friends every day and I found in pals hostel a really beautiful family :)

thanks a lot.




My volunteering work at Pal's was an unforgettable experience.
The work is really easy and actually fun, you get to know and speak with people from all over the world.
Everyone is really nice and kind, a special thanks to Max who was always there to help.
I highly recommend this hostel has you will never feel bored or alone, everyday is a new adventure.




Pal's hostel is a sweet experience to have, it's a fun environment and the people is very friendly, specially Max, who is the best manager ever.
Reception is the best place ever and you can get to play csocso if you wanna crawl against Veronica...
There is a lot of partying if you are into that and the place is VERY centric, so you can visit Budapest easily just walking...
If you are considering coming, don't doubt it, you won't regret it...
Thanks for everything!...
