Welcome to the gorgeous Maverick Hostel, the best choice for a top hostel in Budapest. We had a closer look around and share with you a genuine review of the Maverick.
Anthony Bourdain of the Hungarian capital in a recent episode of Parts Unknown says
“It’s beautiful here. They said that of course, that Budapest is beautiful. But it is in fact almost ludicrously beautiful.”
If that doesn’t have you packing your bags for a trip to Budapest, we can tempt you with some of the sights you can see while in the city. We’re talking about fairy tale palaces, charming squares, fascinating museums, spectacular outdoor spas… plenty of ingredients that will keep any glam-packer happy.

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.
On top of all Maverick Hostel has to offer, it also has an enviable location in Budapest’s 5th District.
You’ll find it just minutes away from the Danube River, along with a spectacular view of the Citadel, Gellért Hill, and Elisabeth Bridge. It’s tucked away in a neighborhood that dates back to the Middle Ages that today is home to a vibrant scene of culture, coffee shops, restaurants, bars, and more.
And you’ll be just 15 minutes away from the city’s major sights (like the castle, Central Market Hall, the Great Jewish Synagogue, and lots of ruin pubs).
Before we start, pack smart…
Remember to pack accordingly for staying in a hostel – yet, do not overpack.
It’s easy to feel relaxed after a busy day of sightseeing at this hostel!
3. Top-notch service
The royal treatment extends to more than just the surroundings, though; you can also enjoy perks fit for a royal with the excellent service the Maverick Hostel offers. That includes things like free social events.
You can make new friends easily, free Wi-Fi, so you can stay connected, free coffee and tea all day long if you need a boost, free daily cleaning, and a tidy common kitchen.
Free coffee and tea? It’s a simlpe service which we do really appreciate.
The staff go the extra mile to make sure you’re engaged and enjoying your stay. Don’t forget to say hi and ask them if they’ve got any suggestions for things to do.
Like we mentioned above, one of the highlights of traveling is getting to meet locals and check out the culture of the new place you’re visiting. The Maverick Hostel Budapest makes it really easy with their emphasis on getting their guests out there and socializing.
They arrange events four times every single week!
What kind of events can you enjoy? There are ones like:
Spirit and wine tastings
Free walking tours
…and pizza nights!
So whether you feel like having a big night out or would prefer to relax at the hostel, there’s something to suit you.
Of course, the tastings are all local drinks, including the traditional Hungarian “pálinka” spirits and Fröccs, a mixed drink including wine.
So, how do you say cheers in Hungarian? That’d be:
Don’t worry if you can’t pronounce it.
Many Hungarians have vowed not to cheer with beers for reasons tied to the Habsburgs’ defeat of the Hungarian revolution.
Austrians celebrated the defeat with toasts with beers; Hungarians responded by saying they wouldn’t cheer with beer for the following 150 years.
Many still refuse to cheer. However, if somebody does “egészégdre” with you, make sure to look them in the eye!
5. Exceptional staff
Any hostel worth its salt has great staff, and Maverick Hostel is no exception!
They take the time to make sure the staff working at the hostel are really dedicated to their jobs.
That means they’re not only really friendly, but they’re also always willing to share their hard-earned local knowledge about the city with you.
