The hostel is different from all those in which I have been, in some ways you feel more in a house, also thanks to the outdoor garden! This feeling also allows volunteers and guests to easily interact and have time to have moments of dialogue! As for my task of painting on the walls, I had a lot of freedom about what I wanted to represent and it's fun that the hostel is a collection of many artworks and memories from volunteers and guests :)

Garden Hostel was were I met some amazing people that I wanna keep in touch for the rest of my life. Its a small hostel a bit far from the city center but perfect if you wanna enjoy Budapest but still chill a little.
The accommodation and bathrooms can be improved and also the ward cleaning but besides that it was a great experience

I feel happy and grateful to have lived in Garden Hostel. Balázs is intelligent, fast and very attentive host with volunteers and guests! The connections with fellow volunteers and guests was so rich and fun. The hostel is a beautiful place, with easy access to downtown Budapest by metro and at the same time it has a peaceful garden to relax. I stayed a bit longer than expected and it was very enriching to be able to exchange sincere and sensitive experiences with everyone in the place.I really appreciate the opportunity and immersion in the very especial Hungarian culture.
Köszönöm szépen!

I loved my time at the Budapest Garden Hostel , i even expected my stay by 2 weeks!
i’ve met so many great people , made friends for life and learnt so much in my time here 🤍
i personally loved the location and not being in the city, having a garden, pool and place to chill has been lovely.
Balázs was a great host , always helped and gave recommendations on where to go , what to see and where to eat.

I loved my stay and will miss this place very much when i’m gone.
