Vera and Laco are nice hosts!
They offer an apartment only for the volunteers, so I could have more privacy and be well integrated with all of them!
The tasks were easy and the schedule respected (with flexibility for changes if needed).
Beyond this, the amount of free days are the best!!!!! You really can travel to neighbors' countries.
However, I missed the contact with the guests in a common area, so we could exchange culture, idioms, experiences.

Volunteering in Budapest Budget Hostel was great. I was there for two weeks from end of February until early March. I think two weeks were more than enough to stay in Budapest. I enjoyed my stay there as a social media reporter. Tasks were simple and we had a lot of free time to do whatever we want, only one post a day on IG & FB. Vera and Lacos were very nice and flexible and made me feel comfortable. I shared the room, toilet and kitchen with all the volunteers. I’d recommend anyone to volunteer or even stay in the hostel but I’d avoid the winter season because it was very cold to me.

This was my first experience with worldpackers and I have to say that it was really good.
Vera and Lacó are very organised and helpful. The tasks in the hostel are easy and the staff in the hostel is easygoing.
The hostel is close to downtown Budapest and well connected to the center by public transportation.
Volunteers stay in an apartment in the hostel and that way you always meet people alike during your stay.
I hope to be able to visit Budapest Budget Hostel in the future, thanks a lot for this opportunity!

I had a great time at the hostel. The working hours and the free days are great to get to know everything around. Extra points for the organization, it makes everyone's life easier. Also Vera was such a great host, she is kind and always willing to help, all you need is to communicate.
I just don't recommend if you are looking for a party type of hostel.
Thanks for everything guys! :)

The BBHostel is amazing. They are very organized, everything is super clean, and Vera and Lacò are great. You can cook your own meal at the helpers’ kitchen and you have free time to travel and discover Budapest. And what a city!! Budapest has an amazing night life, beautiful places to visit and is not expensive as other European cities. My experience couldn’t be better!! Hope I can be there again soon!
