Your Budapest backpacking trip. Your to-do list.

Is your heart set on a downtown hostel in Budapest? Then, you're in the right place! Crash at the MEININGER Hotel Budapest Great Market Hall, and get ready to step out and explore. Think stunning architecture, eclectic street art, and the buzz of ruin bars. Get lost in vibrant streets, soak in thermal baths, and try local street food. From one-of-a-kind nightlife and amazing street food to hidden spots and fun vibes, Budapest's got your back.

Your Hungarian trip is about to get an epic upgrade, courtesy of MEININGER Hotels! Forget run-of-the-mill sightseeing; we're talking about a full-blown, heart-pounding, grin-inducing adventure in Budapest.

The MEININGER Budapest Great Market Hall is more than just a roof over your head, it's your launchpad to all things fun. From our central location, you can step out and conquer the streets: from the iconic Chain Bridge to the vibrant ruin bars, every corner has a surprise calling your name. But it's much more than just the city's buzz, it's about how you experience it. At MEININGER Hotels, we've cracked the code to incredible stays. Picture this: after a day of chasing castles, or soaking up that Danube panorama, you return to your cozy den—yeah, that's your room, a snug sanctuary that's practically perfect for a Netflix marathon, or some post-adventure chat. Hungry? Good news: cook in our guest kitchen, or stroll around our neighborhood to find quaint cafés and traditional Hungarian dishes. Now, let's talk vibes. Our lounge, bar, game zone, and guest kitchen are hubs of new friends, local tips, and laughter. And when you feel ready to call it a day, cozy up in our comfy beds—they're perfect for sweet dreams and a good night's sleep. Wake up refreshed, ready for another day of adventures, and fueled by the yummy breakfast we've laid out just for you.

When you're in Hungary, what matters isn't just the places you visit, but how you live them. And you can count on the MEININGER Budapest Great Market Hall for that—one of the best hotels in Budapest!
