And as you may be asking yourself if this hostel is a party spot, well no! However, if you feel like a party, you can join a fun backpacker pub crawl in Budapest leaving right from the hostel. Therefore, due to the location and quality, this is actually a fantastic place if you want to enjoy the nightlife in Budapest, but sleep well at the same time.
Before we kick off, what is the main different between the three 5 Star Hostels in Budapest.
Here’s the difference:
Maverick Hostel & Ensuites has a very unique building, super downtown location , pub crawl, wine tastings and other fun activities. Perfect for solo-traveller wanting to meet people. It has 30% dorms and 70% private rooms.
Maverick City Lodge is in the middle of the Budapest Soho. It has a modern design, with improved comfort and quality, 40% dorms and 60% privates. Perfect for female solo-traveller!
Maverick Student Lodge is brand new! Here, about 75% is dorm and 25% private. It has a cool pub area together with its lobby. Best hostel in Budapest for backpackers and groups!
How to choose?
If I were you, compare prices for all 3 hostels on their official website, and see what room/ dorm is available for your dates. Personally, I think Maverick City Lodge has the best location.
Maverick City Lodge in Budapest in review
Let’s get into the details. Here is the Maverick City Lodge Review, a superb accommodation and your new home in Budapest.
You can rent your bike directly with the hostel and explore Budapest in no time. This is especially recommended by us.
We think it is the best way to discover the whole beauty of the Hungarian capital.
After a long day of discovering Budapest’s hidden gems, you can join one of the several events organized by the team, e.g. Palenka Wine Tasting.
You are already thinking about it, right?!
Before we get into the details, let this cool video take you on a quick tour…
1. Locally managed & Bike Rental Service
The hostel is completely locally managed.
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 now has bicycles parked right in front of reception, so just ask the lovely staff about pricing for the day. 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 and beanbags 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.
The room types on offer here include:
8 and 10-bed female ensuite
8 bed female dorm (shared bathroom)
4 and 6-bed mixed dorms
Basic double room
Twin and double rooms w/ ensuite
Superior double room w/ ensuite
Additionally, the hostel also has its own Apartments.
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. It is the combination of all these characteristics that 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 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.
And we have to mention this here; the free all-day coffee is fresh ground coffee, not cheap nasty instant stuff. Grab one of the Italian coffee makers and enjoy a cafe-style coffee to start your day. Perfecto!
Other details we just love:
Keycard security & 24/7 reception
Check in until midnight
Free walking tour
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! Yet, it is social.
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 to 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!
Otherwise, you could also head next door to the attached restaurant-bar called Fat Mama.
They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner plus all the drinks you can imagine. Make sure you wave your keycard to recieve a 10% discount! There is usually excellent live music over the weekend which is not to be missed.
Other things the staff can help you arrange include Escape Rooms, Danube Cruise, Thermal Baths and caving.
We recommend the Budapest travel guide by the Swedish Nomad. He covers everything from shopping to spas and sightseeing.
