About Mandala Hostel

Mandala is a small unique homey place in downtown Budapest.
We are located close to the main downtown tracks and sights (Danube-bank, Market Hall, Gellert-hill, curative thermal baths, museums).

Other advantages of the neighbourhood are the inclusion of a supermarket, grocery store, pharmacy, post office, vegetarian restaurant, clubs, and cafes.

This is the perfect hostel for those who are travelling alone and like to meet others. Here, it’s easy to socialize and hang together with an interesting mix of people.

Mandala is a very laid back and easy going hostel. It’ll feel just like your home away from home!

Accommodation Information

Room types:
Mush-room: enchanting Indian-arabesque milieu, ideal for individuals and couples up to 6 people.

Zen-room: There is no way to peace - peace is the way. A clear and bright 4-bed room, you can rest and free your mind after the city hustles.

Domino Room: (Private double bed room with shared bathroom)

Separate room, best for couples. With shared bathroom.
Charmfully furnitured, nice and welcoming room. It is next to the kitchen, so if you are a slug-a-bed type, consider that noises are audible.
