However you can always use other services such as parking, aircondition, laundry, rent a bike, different tours…etc. that costs extra, but only if you want to use these services.

Can I make payment in euro?

Yes, you can. We accept EUR and HUF in case of cash payment. The current exchange rate will be taken into consideration when you check in.

How should I make a group booking?

If you intend to book for more than 12 people for min. 2 nights please contact us on email to get your custom offer directly from us.
Otherwise please fill out our reservation form.

We can accommodate groups up to 32 people. Keep in mind though that however our clean and spacious rooms can meet even hotel standards, currently we do not have common area for large groups, so it is impossible to organize any kind of group activities in the building of the hostel. We are in the center, so it is easy to go out and have a drink or dinner nearby. We also have to make sure about the comfort of our guests and the residents therefore there is also a very strict noise policy in the building after 22:00.

Stag Party / HEN Party
Groups for Stag Party or Hen Party are welcome up to 25 people! We can help to organize different events but keep in mind that our hostel is much more about a safe and clean place where you can LEAVE for a good party and you can COME BACK from a good party.


Does the private rooms have own bathroom inside the room?

Yes. All our private rooms are equipped with own shower and toilet, LCD TV, minifridge, optional air-condition, and electronic keyless lock system.

Are dorm rooms mixed sex or single sex?

Normally all our dorms are mixed sex. Certainly for groups we can arrange single sex rooms if it is required. Also in off season we might be able to arrange single sex dorms if it is needed.

Can I smoke in the hostel?

Only at some part of the building, but not in the rooms. All our rooms are non smoking however there are designated areas in the hostel where you can have a cigarette. If we spot a person smoking inside the rooms, we may take certain steps and even decline accommodation.

Do you have a parking lot for my car, motorcycle, bicycle, minibus?

Budapest is a big city so traffic can be huge and parking can be really difficult and expenseive. Normally if you park on the street between 8:00 – 18:00 you have to pay about 1EUR per hour everywhere in the city between Mon-Fri (weekdays). Parking is free of charge on weekends (Fri 18:00 – Mon 8:00) and on weekdays night (after 18:00 until 8:00 in the morning). If you make a mistake, you will get a wheelblock immediately. We recommend you to use our parking lot for 3 reasons:
– Its safer than parking on the street. No hassle, no worries.
– It costs about the same as you would park on the street: Costs only 10EUR/night
– There’s no time limit. So basically you can leave the car in the parking lot on the next day.
If you arrive by motorbike or bicycle, you can use our small courtyard just in front of the reception FREE OF CHARGE. The parking in the courtyard is the safest place for your bike BUT the space is limited, so write us an email if you are coming on two wheels. For bicycles we can always find additional safe place in the hostel. In case there is no more room for your motorbike, you can use the parking lot for 5 EUR/night.

Can I arrive late at night or early in the morning?

Yes you can but please make sure to inform us about that. In low season we cannot maintain the 24/7 reception so please always write an email or call us in case of late/early arrival. If you arrive before 12:00 in the morning, we cannot guarantee that your room/bed will be ready, but you can use our free luggage room to leave your bags at the reception, get a free map, and start the sightseeing right away. By the time you are back to the hostel your room will be ready.

Is there a lockout or curfew?

No. If you have a place in Corvin Point Hostel we provide all the necessary keys to come in and go out any time you want. Normally we also have a reception that can help you in the hostel during all day long and also all night in high season (summer).

What other services I can get at the reception?

Our English speaking reception can help you a lot more than you would ever think of. Laundry, hairdryer, luggage store, money exchange are just a few things to mention. There are a bunch of tours and activities you can book a ticket for, but we can help you in case you lose your passport, need translation, to get your car fixed, and sometimes our company represents international clients in Hungary too.
