Let’s get into the details. Here is the Maverick City Lodge Review, a superb accommodation and your new home in Budapest.
Maverick City Lodge in Budapest is a 5 Star Hostel because …
1. Locally managed & Bike Rental Service
Maverick City Lodge is completely locally managed, and when they build their unique hostel, they were working together with the famous Hungarian interior designer Dóra Fónagy, and the Hungarian company Defo Labor.
This way they made sure they get the right mix between a new contemporary look with Hungarian influence.
If you are wondering what’s the best way to explore the city, Maverick City Lodge has a great idea we at Hostelgeeks agree with: Ride the city! The hostel has a local partner for bicycle rental services next to the hostel.
This way you will get a discount when renting a bike – smart, right?!
2. Minimalist Style in Hungarian Design
Maverick City Lodge is a true design hostel, designed by the famous Hungarian interior designer Dóra Fónagy and the company Defo Labor.
The hostel has kept with a modern minimalist style.
Young Hungarian designers helped to decorate the Lodge and they used a lot of Hungarian design elements such as lamps by AdamLamp, hangers, sofas, pouffes all over the place to keep the place authentic and local.All the rooms have custom-made furniture designed by Defo Labor, and the dormitories boast unique sleeping compartments.

3. All Characteristics of an outstanding Hostel
… plus the attention to detail!
The Maverick City Lodge combines many unique elements which leads to a homely and charming accommodation.
Modern design with its Hungarian influence, the great location right in the alive heart of Budapest, and very friendly & helpful staff – the combination of all these characteristics make Maverick City Lodge a 5 Star Hostel we are proud to share with you.
Another interesting and lovely part is the effort they do to engage people.
The organized events are all about their culture, to let you taste and experience the Hungarian cuisine, and life-style! Last point we like to mention is the love & attention to the detail at this hostel. You can tell that Maverick City Lodge was built and is running by heart and passion.
The small notes in the kitchen where travelers leave their analog reviews behind are now dominating the whole wall, the hostel staff bought a selfie-stick so they can take group photos with the clients, and share it with them.
4. A social get-together Spot – the vibes
For Budapest it is especially important to mention that Maverick City Lodge is not a Party Hostel! There are guests of all ages, and the hostel creates lots of opportunities for guests to socialize and to get to know each other and the hostel team itself as well.
Therefore they organize free Hungarian wine and Palinka tasting 3 times a week. And if you want to get to know the Budapest nightlife, the hostel organizes a free pub crawl twice a week!
So whether you want t stay in for the night and enjoy the hostels vibes, you are always invited to do so. If you feel like rocking Budapest, join the party crowd! Oh, in our alternative Guide Budapest we included 1 Bar which is THE spot to be for the night.
